Very traditional family run hotel, strong on welcome and service. High quality of linens and extras in the room including the tea and coffee tray. We did not eat dinner at the hotel but breakfast was good, clearly individually cooked. The costs were not high given the service and ambience. When we are looking for accomodation in that area again... More

Very impressed with the welcoming and homely atmosphere of the hotel. Megan and Dan could not have been more kind & helpful following Mother's funeral. The rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable, looking out on the pretty garden and patio. We shall certainly return and will strongly recommend the hotel to friends and family.

Very comfortable bed and spotlessly clean room. Pretty dining room,great breakfast and good friendly service. Large, sunny patio and grass area to sit outside at the back and big, conservatory-like bar area. This is a lovely hotel and I would definitely visit again!

A pleasant and comfortable 3 night stay in September 2014, curtesy of Dan and Megan, Room was large and so was the bed. We stayed in room 1 with doors onto the patio. Bathroom needs updating, but Dan tells us this is on his schedule this winter. Considering the short time the owners have been there, I think they are... More

This was our second visit to The Woodlands Hotel. As on our previous stay here, we were made to feel very welcome by the proprietors, Dan & Megan. As well as a lovely hotel, it is conveniently located to explore Sidmouth and the surrounding countryside. We will definitely come back again.

Another business trip and a recommendation from colleagues that lived up to their standards,its a quirky place with winding corridors and some very interesting external decoration but spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful advising of local attractions,i didn't have an evening meal but if it as up to the standard of the full English... More

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

Dan_Woodlands, Owner at Woodlands Hotel, responded to this review

Well.... How do I respond to such a review when the Reviewer never had the courage to mention these on departure or at any time during their short stay. I think it is best to respond to the points raised in order as quite frankly they are not true. Clearly our guests on this occasion felt that they were not... 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.
