Read reviews on Trip Advisor, sounded good, do not be fooled! Totally over priced. Hotel/B&B very tired, needs lot of repair work and updating, but it is a beautiful building. Breakfast was very basic and if you want anything other than bacon & eggs you will be very disappointed. Hospitality tray also basic, no drinking chocolate and no biscuits. Dan... More

We chose the Woodlands based on its reviews on Trip Advisor, and the location which is close to the town centre and sea front. The building is a lovely old Devon style house, which must have been amazing when it was built way back in time, and has been extended over the years. The ornamental gables appear to be plaster,...

Since taking over this hotel just over a year ago Dan and Megan have done a superb job. The hotel has been upgraded and refurbished in keeping with its history and style. This family provide a warm welcome and deserve credit for great improvements. The chef, who has been there for some years, continues to provide lovely food.

We stayed at this hotel when performing a concert on the Sidmouth bandstand. We were a large group of about 40 people (spread between 2 hotels) and found the Woodlands very accommodting for our needs. They provided a lovely BBQ on the Saturday evening and a social event in the lounge / conservatory. The beds are very comfortable and a... More

We were delighted with our three-night stay at Woodlands. Dan & Megan made us feel most welcome and we couldn't fault the service or quality of the food. When we booked, we did not include dinner, preferring to see what was available, but we were so pleasantly surprised, that we ate in every night. We have both travelled all over... More

We stayed at Woodlands for a spur-of-the-moment trip after seeing it top-rated for the area on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed! The hotel's recently been refurbished, and is smart but unpretentious. You feel welcome as soon as you arrive and the place has a charming and relaxed feel. Our room was ideal, more than big enough, and we slept... More

I had a lovely few days with my friend at this family run hotel in Sidmouth. We were made to feel very welcome by Dan, Megan and the children and everything is really relaxed and easy at the hotel. Breakfast is included and is made to order with a good range of options, and if you want dinner there is... More

This is a very good hotel, deserving of its high rating. Although not small, it has twenty rooms, the atmosphere is like a first class B&B. That is because the owners, Dan and Megan, are very welcoming and friendly, and make each guest feel like part of the family. It is an old building, so all the rooms are all... More

We stayed for one night at Woodlands over the Bank Holiday weekend and would very much recommend it. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. The room we stayed in was a twin and it was very clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was good and cooked to order. We were able to park in the hotel car park and... More

We visited this hotel for a long weekend. The hotel is situated within easy walking distance of Sidmouth. It has free parking although the car park is small and getting in and out can sometimes be difficult. Although it is classed as a hotel it is more like a large bed and breakfast establishment. Children and pets are welcome although... More
