The Royal Britannia Hotel
Broad Street, Ilfracombe, EX34 9EE
The Royal Britannia Hotel sits proudly on the North Devon coast. Surrounded by Ilfracombe’s bustling harbour, rugged cliffs and sunny beaches, there’s no shortage of things to do and see in this beautiful part of Devon. Lundy Island, an unspoiled island bursting with wildlife and famed for puffins inhabiting the cliffs, is easily accessible from the harbour and offers a wonderful trip prior to retreating to the warmth of the hotel. Having undergone extensive renovation since 2009, The Royal Britannia Hotel is the perfect place to relax. When you need to rest and refuel, head to the simply decorated restaurant and tuck into some delicious food. The menu offers variety and features the likes of jacket potatoes, sandwiches and light lunch options. If you’re in need of something more filling, the homemade curry and chilli are popular choices, and seafood dishes include local dressed crab with trimmings and freshly battered cod, chips and peas. Alternatively, if you’re a fan of classics, go for bangers and mash, steak and ale pie with chips, or the beef lasagne, or choose from the selection of burgers and steaks. In addition, the Sunday carvery offers great value. With 20 en-suite bedrooms, some of which overlook the harbour and quay, the hotel has established itself as a fantastic spot from which to explore the stunning surrounds.
