Friendly staff,excellent service, comfortable rooms, varied menu from breakfast to evening dinner and morning/ afternoon tea and cakes. Yes, some bathrooms are small but manageable and everything...

The two of us were booked into this hotel for a wedding party. The welcome was friendly, the hotel was clean throughout, and the service and food were of a high standard. The en suite bathroom was a tad small, but this is a small niggle compared with the overall high standards. This is probably the nicest hotel we have... More

We stayed here on our way home from Cornwall. Our room was clean and bright with a balcony and a spectacular sea view. We received a warm welcome and throughout our stay, the staff were friendly and helpful. This hotel is family owned and run, reflected in the attention to detail and hospitality. It is well maintained and has kept... More

Not our first time at this hotel; this was our third visit and again we were not disappointed. The room 304 facing the sea on the top floor is spacious with two balconies. Additional single bed also available if required. I would ask the management to please replace the mattress in double bed which I think is passed its sell... More

Having just returned from the Kingswood and Devoran Hotel, I would like to thank all the staff for a wonderful short break. My wife and I brought my mother in law after losing her husband before Christmas. What a tonic the hotel was. The staff went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. They were polite,... More

We recently used The Kingswood for a family afternoon cream-tea. The value was absolutely fantastic considering the number of people we invited. The scones and clotted cream were just delicious. What really made our afternoon was the outstanding service we received from the attentive waitresses. They were really considerate of the number of tiny children we had with us and... More

We stayed at the K&D in Sidmouth at Easter 2015. Other hotels had rejected our reservation requests as we were only staying 1 night. K&D accommodated our group of 4 adults & 6 kids beautifully, with lovely sea-facing rooms with children's cot. From check-in through to check-out the staff were very courteous and helpful. At breakfast they has laid on... More

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
