We had a lovely two night stay at Canterbury House. Marc and Jan were very welcoming and helpful. Great room, delicious breakfast and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. The location is fantastic, a few minutes walk from the town centre and the sailing club which was ideal for our break. The room was very clean and well stocked with tea/coffee/biscuits and... More

Marc and Jan are fantastic hosts and gave us a really warm welcome on our arrival in Sidmouth. The room was very clean and looked new with a beautiful en-suite bathroom. Breakfast every day was served with a smile and the food was delicious. We would definitely recommend this for any couples looking for a quiet beach-town retreat! Thanks Marc... More

Only stayed one night but had a lovely room, nice shortbread biscuits and hubby was happy as he could park his bike securely! Next time we visit Sidmouth we will be stopping at Canterbury House. Thanks

This was our first visit to Sidmouth and we were so glad we'd booked the well situated Canterbury House. We were given a warm welcome by Marc, our king size bed en suite room was immaculately clean, spacious and well presented and had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Breakfast was delicious and there was a wide choice... More

Canterbury house is in a great vacation just 5 mins walk from the town and sea front and next to the Byes riverside walk. Marc and Jan welcomed us like old friends and could not have been more helpful. The rooms have been tastefully decorated and equipped with everything you could need for your stay, including free wifi. The beds... More

Marc and Jan are wonderful hosts and made us feel most welcome. Canterbury House is well placed in Sidmouth to walk everywhere easily. The room was spotless, peaceful at the back of the property and very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were delicious and varied and we would definitely recommend this B&B
