We have stayed a number of times at this excellent Hotel and have never been disappointed. The staff are welcoming and efficient, and nothing is too much trouble. We are frequent visitors to Sidmouth and can thoroughly recommend the Bedford.

The staff were all welcoming and genuinely helpful. The rooms have been recently renovated to a high standard and are a generous size compared to modern hotels, even the singles.

Our only criticism was the mattress was very soggy, and we felt as... More

The hotel, a historical building with great character, is ideally situated on the seafront in lovely Sidmouth. The rooms are clean and beautifully decorated and furnished. We... More

We stayed in this hotel for a weekend at the end of February, it had everything we needed for a relaxing break. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were excellent and we look forward to trying the restaurant when we stay again. Free parking is limited, the smaller your vehicle,... More
