    Location

    I believe that the hotel needs direction and investment.. I booked a King room and it was more like a budget room..

  • Older travelers

    Great location and value for money, friendly staff. 10 yards from the beach!

    Car parking is some way from the hotel (£3.20 per day) due to the hotel being on the harbour front. Sea view rooms can be very noisy due to being above the harbour bar terrace and yards from the beach.

  • Couple

    Nice and friendly staff. Pleasant room with nice furniture. Good location for access to the little shops and nice seaside aspects of illfracombe. Good showers

    Parking charges in public car park but it wasn't too far away from the hotel and considering the area parking is restricted so understandable. Not a fan of push button taps In the bathrooms but that's not a big deal. Small towels. Sat night not just out side drinkers but people closing doors seems a noisy night.

    Great Location.

    Bit noisy as room was only single glazed.

    Royal Britannia Inn, to give it it's correct name, is in an ideal position right by the harbour and all the sea view rooms look over the harbour and so does the patio for food & drinks.

    The renovation started in 2010 is still ongoing and there is still a lot to do

    It had a great location right on the beach, Had 3 good days, many thanks.

    Good Breakfast, Clean Room.

    No Parking. Had to pay on public car park.

  • Group of friends

    Convenience for town & harbour.

    Breakfast was from 9.00am, yet being cooked to order, was nearer 9.30am. Paying the night before seemed mistrusting to say the least. Like most smaller hotels in the town, there is no car parking facilities at the hotel. This results in paying daily rates at public car parks and having to shunt around with luggage etc.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Good location overlooking harbour and central to town. Room large and airy, comfortable bed.

    No where to leave car whilst unloading so one had to stay with the car while the other took bags, no help offered from staff with bags. Free parking mentioned on site I was told was miles away so had to pay daily for parking. Hotel entrances and lobby not very inviting, scruffy looking. Room very basic but with a little more thought could be excellent. Push taps in bathroom very annoying as kept sticking.

    Room was small but clean, Breakfast was nice. Paid £48 so cannot complain

    Due to location it was a bit noisy at night but not too bad

  • Family with children

    The location was perfect, just by the harbour. When we arrived to our prebooked room they wanted to put us in a square box without windows and no other rooms where availabe!! But 10 minutes later there was and we moved to an acceptable room. The next day after much discussion there was a fine room availabe with a view of the habour. If you manage to get one of these its lovely, but be prepared for a long discussion!

    It is not a Hotel but a Pub with rooms! The Bathroom was minute, could hardly turn round in it. We could not eat in the dining room so had to eat in the bar, the food was awful. We had to pay extra for Breakfast which is not served until 9 am even though it was a weekday, and we had to eat it with people drinking beer in the bar at 9am! Parking is a long way away. This "hotel" is vastly overpriced.

  • Older travelers

    The staff at the Royal Britannia are really friendly and helpful. Facilities were OK but they are working at improving this. Food at the hotel is very nice, the only downfall being there is no restaurant at the moment and you have to eat in the bar. Once the restaurant area is up and runnning I'm sure it will be very successful. Steve,( the manager) and Ian were really friendly and made us feel very welcome (including my Westie!!) Nothing was too much trouble. Our room had a harbour view and was very nice.

    On your website, you state there is free parking at this hotel. In actual fact there is no parking at all - free or otherwise

    We were in one of the back rooms opposit the road which was very noisy so didnt sleep much the decoration of the rooms were poor as we read on website that it had a lot of money spent on but we didnt see any evidence of this.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    we were upgraded to a large double room which had just been re-furbished and it was spotless and lovely with dark oak queen anne furniture. it had a large bow window which looked out at the pretty harbour beach. staff pleasant but we didnt eat at the hotel as we were eating out with our family in Woolacombe. I would stay at this hotel again.

    nothing go dislike
