Upon arrival we were served complementary tea / coffe which was nice and then shown to out room. The room was average but had a great sea view. The ensuite bathroom had peeling wall paper on the ceiling and mould on the tiles. The deal we had which was the weekend special break gave us bed breakfast and evening meal... More

Visiting from Australia with an 88yo Aunt to celebrate a wedding anniversary, we were thrilled with the character of the hotel, it had all that you would imagine, having watched enough UK program's on TV. The Bedford presents with Style and Grace, the features and service draw you into an experience, one quirk of dining at breakfast, that none of... More

We decided to eat in on all 3 nights in the hotel restaurant. Food was of excellent quality and portions were generous. In addition, the choice on the menu was quite... More

Whilst in Sidmouth, we had an evening meal at The Bedford Hotel. The food was served piping hot, the soup was 5star and the waitress who served us was most pleasant and helpful nothing being too much trouble. Well worth a visit for good atmosphere and well cooked food. Served with a smile.

Good hotel for families. Our breakfasts were on a table all together, with a full choice of food available Very nice position in Sidmouth with access to town and beach. Staff on reception very helpful from our booking, during our stay and checking out. Hope to return again.

The rooms are comfortable and well enough appointed, the staff caring and pleasant. The bar and meals very good value. I stayed there on business for a few nights, but... More

We stayed for just one night during the Sidmouth Festival and was made to feel very welcome and at home by all the staff we met. We took our little dog Ted too and he was given a dog biscuit by the receptionist! The Hotel was immaculately clean and our room was lovely, white bed linen and well decorated and... More
