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

My husband and I have stayed at Dukes a few times now. We like the friendliness of the staff,nothing is too much trouble. Dukes is situated right on the sea front, perfectly situated. 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 :)

The family wanted a get together to celebrate mums 100th birthday in her absence (passed away in 2000 aged 85). We chose Sidmouth because mum liked the seaside. As you can imagine organising somewhere to eat and rooms to fit the diversity of an enlarged family is a task in itself. Dan and Vicky at the Dukes supplied a menu... More

We managed to get a table on a saturday night and the bar and restaurant areas were both busy. A couple of menu items had sold out but the food served was of a high standard.The atmosphere was lively and the staff friendly and helpful. Dogs are allowed in the bar area. A very enjoyable evening evening.

A perfect choice for an overnight in Sidmouth. The room, though a little small, was clean and comfortable. Even in March the restaurant was busy so if you are staying do consider making a reservation in advance to avoid being disappointed. Breakfast was excellent, and if you want a newspaper order it the night before and it will magically appear... More

We have been travelling to Sidmouth as a family for 3 years now and visit 2-3 times per year. Our 3 children adore eating at Dukes, be it breakfast, popping in for a hot chocolate or having dinner out. Their food is absolutely delicious. Tasty, locally sourced produce, very generous portions and always very friendly staff. We are visiting again... More
