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!

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...

We stayed at Southcombe Guest House on a four night special in March 2013. The weather was very cold! But our room was warm, pleasant and very clean. Breakfast and evening meals were well cooked and served promptly. The portions were generous. Very close to the Exeter bus route and about seven minutes to the sea front. Graham and Jackie... More
