We visited for a family birthday celebration and booked two triple rooms. The rooms (Nos 6 & 14) both had nice sea views and were very spacious. We only stayed one night but the rooms would be comfortable for a longer stay. Hotel was nicely decorated and clean and tidy with plenty of tea and coffee available in the rooms.... More

We had a great welcome and a lovely overnight stay at "Dukes". Our evening meal and breakfast were excellent, i am glad i had phoned to reserve a table as they were fully booked. All the staff were very helpful and the dining rooms were boutique style with attention to detail. Well recommended!

We were staying in Sidmouth for a long weekend over the Bank Holiday at the end of May. Our son-in-law had brought my husband & I here for lunch once before (which we had enjoyed very much) and so we decided to book a table for our evening meal on the Saturday. We weren't disappointed! The meal was excellent and... More

Dukes is ideally located along the sea front and central to the town. Our welcome was warm, friendly and efficient. Our room was a good size, comfortable and clean. We especially liked the additional touches, extra milk available on a bookcase on the stairs. (Why are most hotels so mean with milk supplies). Also blankets in a basket for sitting... More

Stayed here for two nights for a friends wedding. Place is buzzing at weekends but plenty of staff who are very friendly and helpful. Rooms and bathrooms small but more than adequate for our needs - clean & serviced each morning. Loved being able to be so near sea & shops. Would certainly return.

Great one night stay, clean, comfortable and very well organised. Every member of staff seemed to enjoy their job so I guess the management do things right, would love to stay there again. The Jurassic coast must be one of the cleanest parts of Britain !!!

I stayed for one night, midweek, at Dukes. I was also here for one night exactly a year ago and this time round the receptionist greeted me with "welcome back" - which I thought was a nice touch! All of the staff were brilliant, very courteous and also hard working - excellent customer service. I didn't have food in the... More

My dad and step mum brought us to the pub yesterday after they had been there the previous year and we were not disappointed. The main reason they visited before was because it is doggy friendly and they found the food to be excellent and we agree. The day was glorious so we sat outside under a brolly and enjoyed... More
