​​The Royal Britannia has 19 en-suite rooms with some of them overlooking the Harbour and the picturesque quay, with its quaint gift shops and restaurants making it the ideal place to stay


​All rooms are available as Room only, or if you prefer Bed and Breakfast this can be incorporated into the price.

The Grand Harbour

The Grand harbour is our newly renovated sister hotel is essentially an annex of The Royal Britannia, after couple of years of renovations and refurbishments we opened in the spring of 2021. 

The Grand harbour has 22 en suite rooms across 3 floors which all have access via a lift making the journey with heavy cases a lot easier compared to the Royal Britannia and also much better for guests that struggle to walk. Please note that some floors do have 2 or 3 steps in places. All rooms are fitted with smart tvs and access to wifi. This hotel does NOT allow dogs

Cautionary note

Please note the location of our hotels is in the heart of the Harbor and therefore it is suited for people who want to be in the middle of a fully functional and working fishing harbor, with resident seagulls, and all the pubs & restaurants surrounding us. People seeking tranquility or quiet resting place would be advised to use an out of town hotel. 

Where to sit 

The Royal Britannia has two bars and a large terrace backing onto Ilfracombe harbour. We serve drinks all day and all year round, our food times vary depending on the time of the year with breakfast, lunch and dinner available. The lounge bar which can be found at the front entrance of the building is available to over 18's only for a more peaceful quiet place to enjoy a drink, will do NOT allow dogs in this bar. In our harbour bar we do however allow dogs and under 18's, here you can find a pool table  #


We have a full Sky and BT sports package allowing us to show all the live games across 4 screens. So if you want to watch the football, Formula 1, Boxing etc please come down and enjoy food and drink whilst cheering on your team!
