I stayed here on Saturday night for a weekend away with a friend. The room was immaculate and very well appointed with toiletries and refreshments. Photos of the local area brighten the corridors and there is tourist info readily available. Marc and Jan are wonderful hosts, friendly and laid-back and the breakfast was brilliant; perfect full English, very enticing buffet... More

Dear Jamie & Sarah, thanks so much for taking the time to write your wonderful review! We were thrilled to read it and even more pleased that you both had a great time in Sidmouth and of course at Canterbury House.

We stopped at Canterbury House during our walking holiday. It is a wonderful place to stop, with lovely rooms and great breakfast in the lovely airy breakfast room. Everything was as we could have wanted it from our friendly & welcoming hosts to lovely comfy bed and sparkling clean ensuite.. If only everywhere was as well run. Very happy to... More

Julie & Andrew, thanks very much for taking the time to post your excellent Trip Advisor review of Canterbury House. We hope you enjoyed your South West coastal path walk, and that the inclines between us and Seaton were not too troublesome! We look forward to seeing you both again, best wishes, Marc & Jan More

So fortunate to find Canterbury house, with hosts Jan and Marc; the warm welcome, attention to detail, and wonderful breakfasts all contributed to the enjoyment of a few days spent in and around Sidmouth. Would be happy to recommend Canterbury house to anyone contemplating staying in this area of Devon.

Dear Jonathan & Pat, thanks so much for taking the time to submit your review of Canterbury House. We know that you were keen to have accommodation close to the town so you didn't have to use the car in evening, and so Canterbury House was indeed your "lucky find". Both the Radway Cinema and Neal's restaurant (where Marc booked... More

Such wonderful hosts from the initial contact to checking out. The little touches make a BIG difference. Lovely breakfast and nothing too much trouble. Very helpful in helping me with directions to the donkey sanctuary. Thank you Jan and Marc.

Stopped overnight on an impromptu visit to relatives. Made a late booking and still managed to accommodate. The room was spotless, the shower invigorating after a long drive. I felt the room rates were very reasonable for the area (still cheaper than premier inn). Breakfast was excellent, and freshly cooked. Well done Marc and Jan. P.s. A card payment would... More

My wife and I have just spent two nights at Canterbury House and our only regret is that it wasn't long enough! Marc and Jan are perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. The rooms are immaculate and the breakfast is simply to die for! Will we return? Most definitely!

Unfortunately,for only one night,five of us stayed at Canterbury House,occupying two doubles and one single en-suite room.Relunctantly leaving the following morning, we all agreed that this was the best b and b we had stayed in for some considerable time. We would challenge the fussiest critic to find any fault here. Every aspect and component necessary was of the highest... More

In a good spot, quiet and next to the river and park and within easy walking distance of the town. Breakfasts were excellent,... More

Have recently stayed here at The Canterbury and found that it was well run and clean and a nice breakfast too, Jan and Marc made us very welcome and nothing was to much to do. It was also set in a nice part of Sidmouth and a short walk to town and beech. Thanks Jan and Marc. Paul & Janice.

A well organised, welcoming and pleasant hotel to stay in, very accommodating with our planned late arrival.. Excellent breakfast and well stocked rooms. Ideally located for the town and seafront but away from any potential noise.
