We were looking for a hotel facing the sea and walked along the seafront. By chance we walked first into the Kingswood to ask about walk in price. The very nice receptionist told us that a double en suite would be £120 for the night and asked if we'd like to have a look. On seeing the room, The Boss... More

This hotel is on the seafront at Sidmouth and I enjoyed lunch with a group of vintage car enthusiasts. This was my first visit to this hotel and was impressed with the preparations that the hotel had made for the 44 of us to enjoy the meal. Looking very smart from the outside the hotel had seating in a glazed... More

Just returned from a coach holiday with a walking group. We had a great time. The hotel is a bit of a rabbit warren when it comes to finding your bedroom, but once found, ours was lovely - large room with comfortable beds. The staff, particularly the dining staff were very friendly and efficient. The food was good - I... More

To be honest, we weren't sure what to expect. We've stayed a number of different coastal resorts in Devon and its quite common for the hotels to look and feel a little 'tired'. This one was different. It was actually very good. Our room had a modern feel with a stripy carpet a faint smell of fresh paint. The bed... More

I visited this restaurant this evening for a women's event and cannot praise too highly the attentiveness of the staff, the attention to detail and the beautifully cooked food. The staff were wonderful and could have given a masterclass in customer service. The food was cooked to perfection with moist chicken and plenty of delicious fresh mixed vegetables. The chef...

We cannot praise this hotel enough. A truly memorable mini break. The food is excellent. A gala dinner on New Year's Eve and a disco for dancing and seeing in 2015. The owners and staff do a wonderful job.

Yesterday I had a two course lunch at this hotel and was very pleasantly surprised. The staff were extremely pleasant and when I asked for a birthday cake (which I had supplied) to be brought to our table as a surprise at the end of the meal, not only did they find candles for it but three of the staff...

From arrival to departure staff were always attentive. Accommodation/Cuisine/Location rated 10/10. In my estimation the hotel deserves 4 star status. A little work on the Wi-Fi and providing either Sky/Cable TV would benefit visitors, especially on a winter's day. Sincere thanks to the chef and his staff. Evening meals and choice warrant a Michelin award. See you again next year.

Stopped here for lunch. The hotel staff were attentative and friendly. The crab sandwich was really good and my wife had the chicken salad. It was also filling and presented well. The atmosphere was relaxing a welcome stop after a lot of shopping. Really enjoyed our lunch here.
