We stopped here a few times during our stay in Sidmouth, as it is right in the middle of the promenade. Perfect for a coffee or snack but the beer is not so good! It has a large outside area with plenty of bench's

Fantastic place to stay, had a lovely room with sea view though luckily we did not go to bed early as terrace was noisy quite late. The staff were brilliant, they seemed to all know who residents were even when meeting them for first time and they could not have been more helpful or friendly. We only ate breakfast in,... More

Having read the mostly positive reviews on this site, we booked a three night break to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. On arrival we were met at reception? which is a stable door between the bar and restaurant. A very warm and friendly lady booked us in, and showed us to our room. A good first impression! Our room was... More

Stayed here for two nights while visiting friends in sidmouth. Took a while to find it as it is set back from the esplanade. Was lucky to find a parking space right outside. We had two rooms on the upper floors. Both very pleasant, well equipped and comfortable. Bar area is very pleasant with a good choice of beers. Unfortunately,... More

I visited here with friends and family yesterday. After several hours wandering around the Folk Festival we stopped for a snack, drinks and a cider or two. Every year we are lucky to get a seat outside (its always so busy) for the open mike session. Once again it did not disappoint - only the weather did. It got quite... More

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
