I am pleased to highly recommend this hotel . I have now stayed on two seperate occasions and have found the owners to be friendly and helpful. The accommodation is very comfortable and every effort is made to ensure your needs are met. I will be pleased to continue visiting this hotel in the future.

I travel all over the country with my work, and this has to be one of my favourite places to stay. I've been back four or five times now. Lovely building with charm and character, comfortable rooms with everything you could need. It's a family run hotel, and you feel that in the welcome you receive from Megan and Dan.... More

Stayed for one night whilst walking the South West Coast Path with two friends and a dog in one twin and one single room. We had a very warm welcome from the friendly owners who explained everything and recommended local pubs we could take the dog into for dinner. The rooms were fine, simply decorated and not huge but perfect... More

An over priced B&B pretending to be a hotel. Owner of hotel / or the owner's wife is loud and too often forced you into a conversation. If you are looking for a quiet stay then there are plenty of other choices in this seaside town (and cheaper places too) then to be ripped off by this place.

I spent some time here whilst on a fairly demanding training course and it was more than a home from home! At Woodlands every thing I needed was met - the room was comfortable with the things I needed. But the owners went well beyond that - they remembered things that I liked from last time and went out of... More

The Woodlands is a lovely hotel with beautiful bedrooms, gardens and reception spaces. However, the best thing about the hotel is the owners Dan and Megan! They are so welcome and accommodating - noticing how you like your tea, serving delicious afternoon cake and making fabulous coffees. If you're coming to Sidmouth or anywhere nearby just stay here!

I received a friendly welcome from the hosts and they were always helpful, cheerful and really accomodating. My room was spacious, clean and well set up for comfort and I slept well which is unusual for me. Food was good, with plenty of choice. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Thanks for such a lovely stay. Tamlin

a fantastic hotel. Beautiful interior and fantastic hosts Dan and Megan. We were made to feel so at home. The breakfast was cooked to perfection and pipping hot. Lovely pot of coffee and toast with marmalade. Our evening meal on both nights was delicious especially the homemade lemon meringue pie. can't wait to return next year.

I spent three nights at Woodlands whilst attending Donkey Week. A small and friendly hotel near to all the amenities in Sidmouth. Dan and Megan were perfect hosts and have redecorated the hotel in relaxing shades which create a peaceful atmosphere. Good food and a very comfortable room, especially the bed.
