Nice hotel situated on the sea front. Had a nice room, although it was a side room.bathroom was rather small, with a corner shower that was just big enough to get in ! Nice touch having a DVD player in the room. Would have liked to have had a choice of bar meals, as opposed to having to use expensive... More

We have been to Sidmouth a couple of times (only for the day) and like the town and the area, so it was Sidmouth we were aiming for. We have a Westie dog (Cassie) and when we were here for the day I did call in to one or two hotels along the front to see if any would take... More

We were very warmly greeted with tea and cakes on arrival. Our coach party was treated the same as guests travelling independently which doesn't always happen. Often coach parties are tucked away in a back room but not here. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. It was good to see that Sidmouth is getting back to 'normal'... More

This was my second visit with a group of runners. The large lounges are ideal for getting together, with complimentary afternoon tea and coffee in the evening. We had one minor problem, a friend had a very squeaky bed in his room. After mentioning this the next morning he came back that afternoon to find a new bed installed in... More

Given the appalling weather in the area (60ft spray over the rooftop of the hotel) they've done a remarkable job in keeping any of the Sea View rooms open. Our room (111) was between two rooms that were still a bit damp :-) The room was clean and cosy and the bathroom spotless....and what a joy to have a balcony... More

It was obvious that this was a family run hotel as attention to detail was superb. We stayed as part of a group of 26, nothing was too much trouble, the staff were wonderful, so friendly and professional and the food was first class. A rare establishment these days and highly recommended.

Stayed for 4 days on the 'Christmas Shopping' special deal break. A warm and personal welcome from the reception with a member of staff taking our bags and showing us to our room. A lovely twin bedded room with a bay window looking out to the sea. Comfortably furnished with plenty of wardrobe space and drawers. Lovely comfy beds and... More
