A very comfortable stay, the bedroom was clean and tidy and had all the facilities that you require. The bathroom was particularly compact but was very clean and functional. Breakfast was very good with a choice of fresh and cooked food and was served promptly and freshly cooked. The Guest House is a fair distance from the promenade and town... More

Our two night stay was most comfortable. Bedroom was nicely decorated and everything was clean and up together. Bathroom was well appointed. Breakfast was delicious with good choices of cereal,fruit and cooked dishes. Nothing too much trouble to provide special dishes for my husband who is dairy intolerant. Owner friendly and welcoming. All in all a good find. I will... More

TV with DVD (DVDs to borrow from living room - nice touch), hairdryer provided. Lovely welcome tray of teas, coffees, water and biscuits replenished everyday. Beds very comfy, if a little soft for...

Booked at very last minute on the way to sidmouth and was fortunate enough to get the last room only due to the fact that someone had to leave prematurely. The gentleman who met us was lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. The room was lovely and clean and light and opened onto the garden. We had a wonderful... More

We were lucky to find this room for a Saturday night. The guest house is about one mile above the town but an easy walk to the center. The bedroom No. 1 is compact but the bed was comfortable, room clean and there was adequate hanging and shelf space.Good tea tray. Also there were sufficient mirrors in the room. The... More

Thanks for you review, The room you stayed in is the last we let out as it is the smallest and having to put the bathroom (even though small) in a 1928 building not designed for en suites has all the required features for a good nights sleep as we know because we stayed in this room before buying Coombe...

We stayed just 2 nights here and were made very welcome. I had changed my booking dates but it was no problem for the owners, who were very accommodating. Breakfast was fresh and tasty. Room to park at the front as well. Highly recommendable!

Coombe Bank is a great find, we were only staying for one night, as visiting friends nearby, (who as it turned out were literally just around the corner). Sidmouth centre is a lovely easy going walk along the river approx 15 minutes. We had a warm and friendly welcome for the owner, and were shown to our room, a good... More

Thank you for your comments. We try hard to provide all facilities and are looking at the shower during our redecoration of the room in the winter. We are always pleased to store motorbikes and pushbikes under cover and hopefully in a reasonably secure area. We are on the outskirts of town but for many of our guest the gorgeous... More
