Dog friendly, warm welcome, nice lunch, not overpriced, clean. We were told we could bring dogs inside but we ate alfresco. The menu is full and varied, huge portions, good range of beers and ciders, certainly made our trip to Sidmouth very pleasant.

Our first day of our break. Called into Dukes as our dog was welcome in the bar area inside. The staff were genuinely friendly and happy to greet you and take your food and drink orders. If you are on a tight budget for lunch then this may not be for you as the average price was over a tenner... More

We booked to stay here - four friends and from the moment we checked in with Will we could not have hoped for a better stay. The rooms were spacious , clean and well appointed with fresh water , everything needed for hot drinks and even games to enjoy. We are not hard of hearing and although having rooms overlooking...

We recently stayed overnight at Dukes after attending a wedding in the local area. The room was adequate although a bit on the small side for the price. Also there was no bath only a shower. The room was clean and tidy but the bed was far too hard for me and we had the added surprise of being kept... More

I was on business in Exeter and unfortunately facing a much later than expected 5hr drive home, so instead rang Dukes having eaten here before last month. They had a sea view room, so I turned up 30 minutes later to check in. My room was a single, but perfectly adequate, everything in the room was clean and tidy, the... More

We have stayed in Sidmouth a few times but had never considered staying there before as it looks like a beer pub with rooms above. We wanted to stay again at the Elizabeth but it was fully booked so the receptionist suggested Dukes which we did not realise is part of the same private group of hotels. We were shown... More

We were here for 4 nights, and it seems to be a meeting point for for a lot of people who live in Sidmouth which can only... More

This is a cracking little hotel set in a pretty spot across from the seafront. The room was very comfortable and really clean and tidy although in en-suite in the room I had you need to be a midget to sit on the loo, luckily I am! Restaurant was good and the breakfast was top notch and was served by... More

We enjoyed a family meal here on Mothering Sunday. Even though it was really busy the staff were friendly and there was a good atmosphere. Could not fault the food it was good sized portions and everything was delicious, can't wait to go again :)
