We sadly only stayed the one night, BUT it was a perfect night. The whole experience was relaxing, which is just what we needed. The wonderful grand stairway up to the rooms was very impressive, as were the fabulous gardens, which were so neat and well kept. The staff were extremely polite and not over attentive. The twin room en... More

This is a fantastic place to bring children. The grounds were absolutely stunning. It's not everyday that one could pay such a low price at a fantastic hotel and enjoy breathtaking views. There was a real sense of community here. Everyone said hello to each other which I found lovely, very very lovely. The swimming pool - both the adult's... More

We spent one night at the Sidholme Hotel. Had an easy check in and the customer service was great. We were lucky to get a room with a TV as I understand that not many rooms have a TV. The bath room contained a bath/shower, the bath was great but the water pressure for the shower was lacking in fact... More

Great value for money. If you want expensive luxury - go elsewhere. If you want great gardens, a superb swimming pool, snooker room, and easy access to the beach and wonderful coast walks, all at a reasonable price - this is the place for you. Ok, it might be a little dated, but that only added to the charm. Any... More

We had an overnight stop at Sidmouth as we needed to see a local tradesman. The Sidholme was just perfect for our needs. Secluded in woodland yet from our room you could see the sea. The rooms are simple, somewhat dated, but spotlessly clean and comfortable. We stayed in a basic room which was great value. The building is old... More

When we arrived at the hotel, we were given a good but simple bedroom in a outside building. With a shared bathroom it's very worth the price. A nice swimming pool was also available. We had a very good breakfast with a lot to choose from. A walk to the beach was also very nice and we visited the local... More

We booked this hotel for a two night stay in Exeter. Unfortunately the hotel prices in Exeter for a family room (2 Adults, 2 Children) were eye watering however Sidholme (a 40 minute drive away) were offering a family room at £50 a night. Breakfast was an extra £10 for adults and £5 for children but was excellent value and... More
