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.

Have just spent 3 very enjoyable nights at Dukes - the staff could not have been more helpful or pleasant - our room was not large but was very well furnished and comfortable - with roller blind and beautiful thick curtains to block out the very early sunrise - 5am at this time of year - our breakfasts were excellent...

We stayed here for 2 nights and were very impressed with the room. There were lots of lovely little "extra" touches like a show shine pad, clock radio, access to a choice of DVDs if needed and also baskets of extra tea, coffee and milk sachets on the landing. The room was really comfortable with a great sea view. The... More

Ate here 02/07/2014 having had a drink here many times. Staff are friendly and helpful and a good selection of drinks. Food was good and reasonably priced and the location is lovely. Overall a nice meal and experience and would happily eat here again if we are in Sidmouth.

Very very good accommodation in Sidmouth, which we found to be a lovely seaside town. Great location on the Esplanade, so sea views, but with that came the inevitable sea gulls, making noise in the early morning, to be expected. Extremely comfortable bed, our room was nicely and very well decorated. We left booking for dinner too late, so were... More

Dukes was a great find, we usually stay at The Belmont which is fine but with little atmosphere. The staff at Dukes were so friendly and helpful. Room was a tad shabby and clean (but not spotlessly clean). However, it was very well appointed with lots of thoughtful touches and the bed was extremely comfortable. Dinner in the bar was... More

Just stayed at Dukes for the second time as we use this as our base when visiting relatives in Sidmouth. What added to our enjoyment this time was the great summer weather. This hotel is situated right on the esplanade front across the road is the beach. We stayed the one night and were very happy with Room 4 a... More

We stayed for 2 nights in May 2014 and we welcomed by the friendly staff. The family room 6 we stayed in was clean, well laid out to accommodate the 5 of us and had a sea view. Breakfast was extensive with cereal, yogurt, fresh pastries and a full cooked English. The fish and chips I had in the evening... More

We booked the Dukes Hotel in Sidmouth online. Booking was easy and only a third of the cost was taken on our credit card. They then collect whatever you owe when you leave. The hotel is small with only 14 rooms. The hotel sits back from the sea front between another hotel and a row of shops and fish and... More

Thanks for the review but maybe you were expecting somewhere a little different when you booked with us, Dukes is an Inn, we are nether a hotel or a restaurant and try very hard to ensure all our marketing reflects this. We have a bar, patio area and a dining room and 14 rooms which we let for bed and... More
