We were visiting Sidmouth for the day and looking for somewhere to stop for lunch where we could either eat outside or take the dogs in. Dukes fit the bill on both counts - we opted for outside as it was a nice sunny day, albeit a bit chilly. Surprise No. 1 - they provide blankets; a nice touch common... More

4 of us stayed for two lovely nights. We received a very friendly welcome and the staff were friendly, helpful & attentive throughout our stay. The menus provided a wide choice and the food was hot, well presented and very tasty. Breakfasts are great and included fruit, cereals and a wide variety of cooked options - nothing was too much...

Just returned from a two night break here with my wife and daughter. We visit Sidmouth annually at this time of year as our baby son's Jacob's ashes are scattered on Jacob's Ladder Beach. After visiting other hotels in the area before, last year we discovered the Dukes Inn and we're pleased again to return this year. We were allocated... More

We stayed here for two nights and couldn't have been made more welcome. A brilliant manager and charming staff made it a delight to stay at Dukes. Food was brilliant at lunch and dinner. Breakfast buffet and cooked breakfast was generous. Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. It was great!

We booked a table for Sunday evening as a lot of places in Sidmouth are closed. We were greeted by smiling, friendly staff and shown to our reserved table in the conservatory overlooking the beer garden and great for people watching. Our food took nearly 45 minutes to arrive, but was well cooked and tasty. We had two steaks, cooked... More

We had stayed in the Hotel Elizabeth next door on several occasions and liked it very much. We ate twice at Dukes and loved the quality of the food and the excellent wine list. This time we stayed at Dukes and loved the more contemporary feel. We were made very welcome, and although the restaurant was full for dinner a... More
