windswept and drenched just from the short walk from the car, but those worries soon drifted away after really enjoying some langustins cooked in garlic and spices followed by pan fried whole place in butter accompanied by a hot plate of mixed vegetables. I thoroughly enjoyed the food here and drinks for a very fair price. I can honestly say... More

Very old buildings and noisy in the middle night with the occupants above opening and closing drawers for a long time. Small TV and intermittent wifi. Staff very helpful and breakfast good. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom large. Could not get the shower to work properly either boiling or cold, not great for hair washing! Great position, limited... More

A lovely hotel on the Esplanade, with a good bar and restaurant on the ground floor, extending onto an outdoor terrace. Staff were great - friendly, professional and attentive. The hotel was clean and well maintained throughout. Food was excellent, a good range of snacks and main meals - ours were well cooked with generous portions. The breakfast was also... More

A warm welcome and a very comfortable 2 night stay at Dukes! The hotel is very clean and well presented with excellent service from the friendly, helpful staff. Great menu choice and very good vegetarian selection. The veggie breakfast is the best on the planet. Reception staff particularly helpful, offering to 'google' the bus times of the free hopper bus... More

The hotel was good value and perfectly located. But what struck us was the sheer friendliness of the staff. Made to feel very welcome when it came to accommodating us and our five year old son. So important and we were very grateful.

Had to be in Sidmouth for just one night and Dukes came into the equation. A good choice so congratulating myself. I was a single travellewr so offered the hotel's one single room which is still impressively large. No box room this with a single bed but no space to make it. Very comfortable. Staff attentive and friendly. Only meal... More

Hotel and restaurant, all-in-one. Well positioned, right in the middle of esplanade / promenade. Best cousin by my opinion. Well cooked food, steak is definitely the one course to taste :-) Wine list is an appropriate, as per me.
