We stayed one night. It's close to the seafront and to the Coast Path. Room was big,clean and the four-posted bed was a plus. Breakfast was very good. They have some press cuttings framed by the Reception showing this hotel has been part of Sidmouth since early 1900's.Will definitely go back next time I'm in the area

Family run and very friendly, nice spacious twin room,excellent service. Quiet but probably due to time of year. Good breakfast included in the price with a good choice, lovely garden and nice bar. Would stay again.

Firstly, I have to say a big big thank you to Dan and Megan (hope I have spelt it correctly!) for making our stay so fantastic. Just like a home away from home. Lovely, warm people. My fiancée, our mad springer and I stayed at the Woodlands for 3 nights on the 5th and again for 1 night on the... More

We had stayed at the Woodlands a few years ago under the previous owners. It was the worst stay we had ever had. What a difference now. Dan and Megan have done so much work on the hotel. The Woodlands Hotel is a very friendly family run hotel. We stayed in room 5 which was one of the smaller rooms,... More

Stayed 4 nights. Very friendly family hotel. Room was clean and comfortable with a balcony overlooking a well kept garden. Megan and Dan are excellent hosts who provide a great breakfast. Hotel provides free parking and is an easy walk to the sea front. A very enjoyable stay.

We stayed at the Woodlands over Christmas and stayed in lovely room with a huge very comfortable bed, which was recently decorated and clean. Megan and Dan were great fun and very hospitable. We look forward to our next stay.
