The hotel is beautiful and the views from the restaurant stunning. The food and service was very good in the restaurant, which very good choice on the menu. May not take my teenage daughters there to eat again as the hotel appears to be used by the older generation rather than families

If you are over the age of 70 and on a coach trip then very nice. Unfortunately we are not and were very under-impressed. Very small rooms and even smaller en-suite. Nice and clean but not good value at £154.00 per night B&B.

It's a few years since our last stay and there has been many changes and all for the better. Restaurant area is now bright and not crowded. Food very good especially the evening meal. All the staff we came into contact with were happy and polite. The new outdoor drinking area was very nice although we only had one day... More

Stayed at the Kingswood & Devoran Hotel for 4 nights beginning 178/2015. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the staff were excellent. We had a sea view room which was nice and spacious our only complaint was that the beds were like bricks, even when supplied with a topper. The meal choice was very good, unfortunately it was a bit... More

Our room was small but well appointed, the bed was not a full size double but for one night was OK. Hotel only has 3 parking spaces in a garaging area at the back. I... More

Cannot praise this place enough. Just stayed for one night - Saturday 25th July, wish it could have been longer. Great location - right on the seafront/promenade and 2 mins walk from the town centre. Clean, tidy, bright atmosphere. Very friendly and very helpful staff. Food in the restaurant was excellent, and again the waiting staff were very efficient and... More

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights recently as part of a coach trip. I have been on many coach trips of varying quality, particularly with regard to the hotels. My pet hates are being seated in a separate section of the restaurant and being given a different menu to other guests with rigid mealtimes. What a refreshing change... More

There are so many places to choose from on Sidmouth seafront for lunch, so it was by chance that we chose this gem. The weather was sunny and warm and we sat outside in their very pleasant small seating area in the shade of an umbrella. Three of us only wanted sandwiches and a pot of tea, but couldn't resist...
