Reviewed 13 May 2015

Like other reviewers we stayed because we were attending another event nearby. Location good, close to harbour and town. It is not the hotel's fault but because of proximity to harbour the noise from seagulls in the morning is deafening. Take ear plugs unless you want to be awake from dawn! Hotel needs a good spruce up and some bringing...

Firstly, I would like to point out that this reviewer has posted reviews for 4 hotels in Ilfracombe (all on the same day by the looks of it) and has marked all of them terrible. The reviewer has also posted 53 Hotel reviews worldwide and it appears most of them are terrible. The reviewer has left 103 reviews overall of...

Really lovely staff especially Malcolm the manager. In a great position close to the harbour and centre of town. The room we stayed in was a little dated but I believe the hotel is undergoing an upgrade. If you want opulence, not the place for you but if you want value & warmth it's spot on!

We chose this hotel as the price was good, and the location was opposite the wedding we were attending at The Tunnels Beaches. Malcolm (the owner) had already emailed me with clear descriptions of how and where to park – which we shared with other wedding guests and proved very useful. When we arrived we found parking at the back...

We just spent two great nights in the bath house hotel. The outside of the hotel could do with a lick of paint. The room was clean. Well equipped and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, a cheerful "good morning" welcomed us into the restaurant for breakfast. Service was good and we had a hearty breakfast. A very pleasant stay.

The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful. The hotel was let down by the poor quality breakfasts (cheap ingredients and not well cooked) and cleanliness (dust and dirt ) . I you need a stopover it's fine.

I note that the previous review says how clean the hotel is. It may be that we occasionally miss spots but we work very hard to ensure the hotel is clean and tidy. As for our breakfasts, this may be your opinion but here are the facts. We provide 5 cereals, all names brands such as Kelloggs. We use large...

Chose this one as the price was ok, location was handy and had the added attraction of a spa bath and gym downstairs. When we arrived we found convienient parking at the back of the hotel, however it is on a first come first served basis, and we ended up parking next door, which was free until 10am the next...

Thank you very much for your kind and descriptive review. It's nice that somebody has taken the time to leave a positive review. We have many, many satisfied guests but unfortunately, only a few express this on tripadvisor.

If you had problems you should have come to see me rather than complain to the world. Firstly, I'd like to point out that there were near hurricane level winds on the night in question and we have sash windows in keeping with the original style building. Unfortunately, very high winds do come through. Your friends next door mentioned they...

We have been using The Bath House Hotel very regularly since 2010 to host volunteers for The Forces March and The Veterans Charity. Many are elderly and need comfort and a good nights rest. Malcolm and his staff provide a great breakfast, very comfortable rooms and the recent refurbishments are great. The prices are highly competitive for Ilfracombe and the...
