Dilkhusa Grand Hotel

Wilder Road, Ilfracombe, EX34 9AH

The Dilkhusa Grand Hotel has a unique story behind it; originally bought by a Raj as a gift for his wife, it was named as ‘Dilkhusa,’ meaning ‘House of the Happy Heart’ in Hindustani. Situated in a great seafront location in Ilfracombe, the hotel is across the road from the wonderful Jubilee Gardens which contain the fascinating Ilfracombe Museum and the Landmark theatre, and it’s just a short walk to the attractive working harbour and town centre. With a sociable atmosphere, inviting lounges and tempting dining options, this hotel has all the perfect ingredients for a relaxing break by the coast.

Hotel Location

Sitting amongst the rugged coastline of North Devon, Ilfracombe is a British seaside favourite. Quaint pastel coloured houses contrast with nearby towering clifftops, and the charming harbour is a delight to explore. This picturesque town boasts stunning beaches and coves, fantastic eateries, art and craft galleries, and must-visit attractions including the Ilfracombe Observatory and Watermouth Castle. If you’re feeling a bit more active, head to the top of Capstone Parade for great views back across Ilfracombe. Other highlights in the surrounding area include Barnstaple, Bideford, and Woolacombe Beach with its golden sands.

We have recently returned from another Self Drive holiday to Llandudno, staying at the Marine Hotel. We had the most wonderful time - Hotel was again clean and comfortable and was beautifully warm (which was needed). All staff are wonderfully friendly and welcoming and we could not fault this holiday - we always enjoy our stay and cannot wait to return.
