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

We stayed for one night and this guest house is of excellent standard. The rooms are lovely and clean. The owner Harry was very friendly and could not do enough for us. The breakfast was one of the best we had ever had. The guest house is situated on a lovely road and only a short walk to town. I... More

Myself and my partner stayed here for the weekend whilst visiting relatives. It is a cracking little B&B and a great place to based a relatively cheap stay. The breakfast is particularly worth a mention, great choice and beautifully cooked with quality ingredients. The warm welcome and friendly banter also adds to a great stay. Thanks again, we will be... More

Sidmouth is a really nice little town on the coast in East Devon, with several lovely villages nearby. We booked late and were lucky to get a room at Coombe Bank. Harry is extremely friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and had everything we needed. We both really enjoyed the breakfast (especially eggybread!). We will definitely revisit this guest...

We got off to a bad start when we stayed here for 2 nights in July 2013. I had booked the ground floor room because it had a bath and space for a large travel cot for our 2-year-old. The owners had also offered to let us sit in the room across the hall in the evenings, from where we... More

Lovely spotlessly clean room with very comfortable bed Toiletries and fresh clean towels were very much appreciated Wide choice of breakfast menu which included smoked salmon and scrambled egg cooked to perfection by our very friendly hosts We have visited Sidmouth each year for over 20 years and this is definitely the best guest house we've stayed in by far

I completely agree with the last post. The owners try very hard to make the guests feel at home and it works. The beds are very comfortable and the room was light and airy. The breakfast was excellent with a wide choice, served by Harry the cheery owner. On our next visit to the area, we will definitely be back.
