Booked to stay 1 night at the hotel, Tuesday 26th May, it cost us £49.50, excluding breakfast, which we thought reasonable given its location.The hotel is situated about 5 minutes walk from the town and seafront. The hotel was originally built has a stately home so the building and extensive gardens look rather impressive in pictures but in reality was... More

The grounds of this hotel are magnificent. Only 10 minutes from the seafront. We stayed in the main building with twin... More

My single room with en suite was spotless and clean and with breakfast included, excellent value. Hotel is situated within 5 minutes easy walk to the centre of Sidmouth... More

This hotel is within a short walk of the seafront, set in pleasant gardens.The interior is so interesting with a long history.Our room was basic, clean, and good value for money. A superb buffet breakfast was at tables set for eight which made good conversation, but if you preferred they set a table of your choice. Although run by a... More

My husband and two young children recently stayed at the Sidholme Hotel and found the place to be charming. The setting is extremely tranquil with beautiful gardens and lots of space for the children to explore safely. The swimming pool being an added bonus. We stayed in the main building with it's faded grandeur; our rooms were admittedly basic and... More

Booked 2 rooms for family break with tripadvisor. Supposed to be a last minute reduced price bargain...got even less than we paid for. Saw beautiful pics of hotel and grounds but ended up in a run down annexe, twin beds in both dowdy rooms that were on separate levels plus no cot as ordered. All Shared bathrooms, water overflowing drains... More

We did not know it was a Christian holiday centre until I did some research but were happy as a Christian that we found it. We were in the annex which is a very run down building with some... More

We stayed a couple of nights at this hotel the week after Easter as I had found an amazing price deal on booking.com. That meant we were staying in the annex which was kind of a cross between a hotel and hostel. Hostel like in that bathrooms were shared (not once did I have to wait though) and hotel like... More

Have just spent a 5 night stay at Sidholme for a country dancing holiday. Very good food, clean comfortable room, friendly guests and staff. The dancing was led by Graham, who was excellent and introduced us to new dances as well as enjoying familiar ones in the evenings. I shall look forward to going back to Sidholme the next time...
