We have just returned from our seventh or eighth trip to Canterbury House. Obviously from the amount of times we have been there, we are extremely pleased with the accommodation and the first class service that Jan and Marc provide. The rooms are spotlessly clean and are furnished and decorated to a good standard. The bathrooms are clean and modern... More

Excellent place to stay, just the right distance from the centre of town. Very warm and friendly welcome. Excellent breakfast, catering for all tastes. We have no hesitation in recommending. Usually we stay in self catering, but enjoyed B and B for a change, spotlessly clean and comfortable, which is more than can be said for most self catering places.... More

Friendly and efficient welcome from our host, he even offered to park our car for us. Beautifully appointed spacious room with a spotlessly clean bathroom. Gorgeous quality bedlinen all followed by a good breakfast with home made preserves. A real home from home.

Everything about Canterbury House was of a very high standard - the property, the rooms, the breakfast, the welcome and service from Jan and Marc, the owners. The location is very central for everything that Sidmouth has to offer and coupled with five days of excellent weather we had a great holiday.

Marc and Jan are great hosts - friendly and welcoming. Plenty of breakfast choice along with a daily special and all freshly cooked. Our room was light, airy,comfortable. Well situated within walking distance of the seafront and town centre.
