Guests can enjoy a relaxing meal in the hotel’s own bright, airy restaurant where attentive staff will serve your choice of dish from our hearty menu, cooked to perfection. After dinner, relax in one of the spacious lounges and enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple, while the lively programme of quality entertainment takes you into the early hours. The hotel’s performers typically include vocalists, comedians, musicians and all-round entertainers, so you can enjoy a great night without having to leave your accommodation.

For those who do want to venture out, there’s plenty more to do close by. The Landmark Theatre is a striking 483-seat venue that’s just a stone’s throw from the hotel doorstep. This hosts a wide variety of shows including music, comedy, drama, dance and special events throughout the year. Keep an eye out for beer and cider festivals if you’re partial to a local brew.

A stroll along the promenade is the best way to discover the delights of Ilfracombe’s thoroughly British seafront with its bandstand, tea rooms, restaurants, traditional pubs and tempting takeaways to suit all tastes. You’ll also find plenty more attractions within walking distance of the Dilkhusa, such as the town’s fascinating Museum, the award-winning Aquarium and the unique Tunnels Beaches.
