We spent 3 days at the hotel and could not fault the attention to detail. The reception staff were pleasant and extremely helpful. Our room overlooking the sea was very pleasant, albeit that the shower room was very small. However, the couple we went with had an extremely small room but as we were there for only 3 days they...

The hotel(s) are nicely located on the beachfront. It unfortunately give the impression and feeling of being quite old and in need of TLC. The breakfast room is overcrowded and often running short of food. Our double room was VERY small with a VERY small window overlooking the sea. This hotel is way overpriced for what you get.

We didn't stay at the Kingswood and Devoran Hotel, so this is just a review of the restaurant. We popped in for lunch mid-week. The food was well-cooked and tasty, and the service was good (though I found our waitress a little bit too eager to please in an almost bowing and scraping sort of way; a more easy, natural... More

To be honest I have just copied my previous review about this hotel. "Stayed here as a central base for our golfing tour of Devon with seven others. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. All our party agreed that the restaurant food was very good and were very happy to make minor changes to accommodate our parties different dietary.... More

A lovely hotel on Sidmouth seafront complemented by amazingly friendly staff. From the moment we arrived, at 10pm on Saturday evening, me and my Japanese Akita, Strauss, were made to feel very welcome. Although the room was fairly small, it served its purpose. The shower cubicle was also small and the water pressure not the greatest, but again ...it served... More

we have just returned from 4 night break staying in this hotel. My only complaint is that it had been hell on my diet. The food is excellent and plentiful, we were very surprised by the high standard. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. The room we had was at the back of the hotel...

We have walked from Minehead to here, as a family , over the years. WE had 3 days off, for bank holiday and no Bed and breakfasts would let us book for one night. This was despite the fact that we did see Bed and Breakfasts with "Accommodation available" signs up, during our walk! However, they were extremely helpful here... More

Just returned from a weekend break at the hotel. If I was asked to sum up this place in one word I would use 'civilized'.It is obviously run with old fashioned values which I really like. If you want a place that is warm and welcoming in a prime location look no futher. The dated rooms and small shower facilities... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on a dinner bed and breakfast basis to visit friends in the area. We had a sea view room overlooking the promenade which was spotlessly clean, although the bathroom was a little dated. We had a balcony (albeit it rather small) which was lovely to sit on. The staff in this hotel are excellent,... More
