An absolute gem of a find in Ilfracombe! Welcomed with open arms by Paula and Adam into their oh so stylish B&B with sea views over the quaint fishing village; a short walk from the town harbour and the great restaurants of Ilfracombe. Paula and Adam have made a beautiful Victorian home with some serious style - eclectic selection of...

Spent two nights in this hotel in a good sized room,comfortable bed and with views of the sea. The breakfast was excellent which included one of the best eggs florentine I have ever had. Just five minutes walk from the Tunnel wedding venue and fifteen minutes from the harbour.

From the moment you step through the door, you're impressed not only by the superb welcome which Paula and Adam offer, but also by the glorious decor including sumptuous room furnishings. Breakfast is always relaxing even if you are slightly 'late diners" as we tend to be...the option of a super-king size bed is pure luxury. The peace and serenity...

This was our second visit to Norbury House and it didn't disappoint. Paula and Adam are wonderful hosts, making sure we had everything we needed. The breakfast was fantastic, and really set us up for our walk along the coastal path just behind the hotel. The location is just great! We look forward to booking in again at Easter.

Was looking for a quick half term mini break and came across Ilfracombe. The Verity statue in the harbour is helping to bring the Victorian town into the modern age and this hotel helps too. Very friendly welcome, excellent breakfast, 5 mins walk down to town or up to coastal path.

Very friendly and helpful. Clean and tidy, with great breakfasts. Full of information on the best places to visit around Ilfracombe. The rooms are well equipped and comfortable beds. All you would want in a B &B plus a bit more. Disadvantage, it's uphill from the town, although that's pretty common in the area. Also, if you have a lot...

A genuinely friendly welcome from Adam, Paula and Bovril the dog to their beautiful house which is in a great location on a quiet street, backing onto the South West Coastal Path with views across Ilfracombe to the sea. They provided outstanding breakfasts, excellent local knowledge and booked us two superb meals in local hotels - we couldn't fault it...

We spent two nights at Norbury House. Unfortunately it was not one of our best B & B experiences. What we found did not match the glowing reports of previous guests. The house is reached by a steep, narrow drive at the top of which are a few car parking places in a confined space which makes turning the car...

We had a great time here. Stayed in several B&Bs over the years and this one is the best of them. Adam and Paula were great hosts, great cooks and just made it feel like a stay at a friend's house. Thanks for making a summer holiday just that.
