‘Dilkhusa’ means ‘House of the Happy Heart’ in Hindustani. The hotel was originally a private house, bought by a Raj at the turn of the last century as a gift to his wife!
This 98-bedroom holiday hotel is situated just a few minutes’ walk from the seafront at Ilfracombe, one of North Devon’s most popular seaside resorts. The hotel overlooks the Runnymede Gardens where you’ll find the Landmark Theatre and Ilfracombe Museum. And the South West Coastal Path runs through the park, between the promenade and the hotel. So if you’re planning a rambling holiday in Devon and Cornwall, make sure that Ilfracombe and a comfortable stay at the Dilkhusa Grand Hotel is on your itinerary.
The lovely Wildersmouth Beach, Tunnels Beach and Ilfracombe Beach are within walking distance. And if you are feeling energetic, stride up Capstone Hill – the site of Ilfracombe Observatory – and enjoy spectacular views over the North Devon coast and the bay. If the sea beckons you, there are many different options for excursions from Ilfracombe Harbour, along Exmoor’s coastline and out into the Bristol Channel towards Lundy Island.
The hotel has 98 comfortable bedrooms for singles, couples and families, restaurant, bar and lounge. There is regular live entertainment, and well-behaved dogs are always welcome.
