Lovely room in main house, gardens outstanding and owners went that extra mile to be helpful. A friendly, happy atmosphere amongst guests and very aware of many who have stayed multiple times - always a good sign!

Second time stopping at this lovely place and wasn't disappointed. They are so welcoming and make you feel at ease. Food is superb, rooms clean and tidy. Only a short walk from the centre of town and the beach. Would definitely recommend and done so to anyone else.

We have just returned from our second stay here, and will be back ASAP. A lovely guest house with beautiful gardens, well maintained and looked after in every aspect. Superb customer service from the very friendly (and funny) owners. Nice breakfast, and very reasonably priced. A true favourite of ours!

Graham and Jackie are the best hosts, welcoming, friendly and a great line in 'banter' (Graham) We just laughed and had a great time. The B&B is a home from home very relaxing and comfortable, nothing is too much trouble and everyone is made to feel special. Beautifully kept garden area to relax in. Just a short walk to the...

We have been going to Sidmouth for a number of years. We cam across Southcombe by accident during the first visit, and have stayed there every year since. You are always assured of a friendly welcome, breakfast and evening meals are good and the bedrooms clean and comfortable. We can thoroughly recommend Graham and Jackie's hotel as really good value... More

Visited here with a colleague a few days ago. The owner gave us a friendly welcome and showed us to our room. Room was clean & tidy but the decor was a little cheap & very dated and needed to be simplified or updated. Bathroom was OK but shower was very weak. Suppose the main concern would be the plastic...
