The restaurant was very busy for a January Wednesday night, the menu was good and the food met our expectations. Breakfast was excellent. There... More

Very good stay Only one night and in a single, but there was nothing more to desire. Good swift check-in, nice room clean tidy, everything in there you would need even a 2 speaker radio with ipod connectivity. Great shower and toilet fascilities, tv, and dvd player and wi-fi reaching the second floor. Great breakfast piping hot, and easy check-out... More

We stayed here (again) as a family for two days over Christmas using rooms 6 and 7 and eating there too. I cant speak highly enough about how comfortable the beds are and how nice our rooms were. The staff are wonderful, happy and very attentive. The place itself is oddly new and old at the same time with Wi-Fi... More

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
