5 nights at this hotel in July with service far beyond any other 3 star hotel I've ever stayed at. Nothing was too much trouble for the excellent staff from breakfast to bedtime. Always smiling, always polite, always eager to help. Smart yet relaxed. The hotel itself has the best position on the esplanade in my opinion with excellent sea... More

The hotel staff were very helpful and location could not have been better but the rooms were small. My mother had a single and it was tiny and our double was awfully tight as well. The bathrooms were also small. One morning there was no hot water in the single and the bathrooms are so challenged with space that having... More

This was our first stay in Sidmouth, and we were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel is in a fantastic position overlooking the sea. We had booked a sea view room but had the added bonus of a balcony, plus an allocated parking space. The only minor quibble was the size of the shower room, but that is being really pernickety,...

We stayed in 2013 and were impressed by the service of all staff, we had booked a sea view room and secured a parking bay. We felt we should return to ensure that what we had was the normal and so returned June 2014 Well our visit just proved that not only was last year the norm but this year... More

We were swept off our feet by the customer service and excellence of the food at this hotel. Nothing is too much trouble and the personal attention to every detail is impressive. Situated right on the front and just round the corner from the shops and the theatre (which has a different play every night of the season), it also... More

We managed to park on the road right outside the hotel which was handy. A porter from the hotel came outside to help us in with our luggage. We found the staff friendly and helpful at all times. The rooms were clean and tidy and the bathrooms were great (we occupied two single rooms and one twin as there were... More

The hotel right across the road from the sea! The staff were excellent couldn't do enough for you. Room and shower good. Unfortunately no parking for us as we were a late booking. Had to park in public car park about a 10/15 minute walk away. Breakfast good, but not keen on the idea of a designated table (ours was... More

Took a coach party to this hotel recommended by a friend. What a fabulous place. The warm welcome from Jo and the attention of the friendly staff throughout the hotel was excellent. The rooms were comfortable, sea view okay but noisy from teenagers on Saturday night on the promenade needs sorting by police! Food exquisite, menu choice extensive, must have... More

Stopped here for a sunday roast. Well had a great lamb roast, worth every penny and my partner had beef. Sat outside as the weather was great. The staff were very friendly and polite. I would recommend this hotel for a sunday lunch.
