Dan and Megan combine with the rest of the family and staff to make this Hotel so welcoming and relaxing. Nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is clean and bright with lots of character. The new patio is a quiet and relaxing place to have pre dinner drinks, post dinner coffee or to just sit and relax. The rooms... More

Large property, friendly hosts who went out their way to enhance your stay. We did bed and breakfast, I found my full English delicious, with my wife having her favourite porridge. We booked late so had one of the smaller rooms, but this was ideal for our needs. The hotel has a family feel to it, and you soon feel... More

Have just returned from a three day weekend break where the new owners, Dan and Megan, were celebrating their first anniversary since taking over this character property and I can only reiterate the positive comments made in previous reviews. During their first year they have carried out extensive renovations, redecorating and fitting new carpet and beds throughout.We had a room... More

It was wonderful to spend the first anniversary of Dan and Megan being the wonderful new hosts and proprietors of Woodland Hotel, Sidmouth this past weekend, to see what a transformation they have made of the place and brought it bang up to date. Even though there is still a bit of work to do, this is only in a... More

A great greeting from the owner, he made us feel very welcome as he showed us to our large ground floor room while carrying our cases, beautiful large room with very comfortable bed. The food was excellent. Excellent location with a short walk through the town to the beach which is very nice. I would recommend this hotel.

Great room in the attic and limited headroom was no problem for my 6'2" height. The room set on the rear of the hotel was spacious and quite. The owners looked after us well and take a great pride in their Hotel. Well located for sea, restaurants and cliff top walks.

A most enjoyable stay at a very friendly hotel. We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. For example, they arranged for us to have early meals in the evening so that we could attend evening events. The food was excellent and the service quick and efficient. One small reservation was the... More

Its not always the hotel you stay in that matters, the couple who run the Woodlands Hotel make all the difference and I would certainly go back. The owners make you feel welcome and spend time getting to know you. Many thanks for an enjoyable stay. John from the UAE
