A beautiful little hotel - really a 'restaurant with rooms', where you get the warmest of welcomes and the food is excellent. Our room was lovely, with an egg-shaped bath and a shower that can be turned into a sauna. High quality toiletries. Spotlessly clean everywhere. Despite overlooking a busy road, we were not bothered by noise at all, and... More

Needing a few days of relaxation we decided on South Devon and my wife chose the Salty Monk mainly due to the quality of the rooms. We chose the The Iris suite and were not disappointed.The lounge area was comfortable if a little small, the king size bed very comfortable and the bathroom was amazing with a very large jacuzzi...

The owners have paid good attention to detail with their rooms and food. All good. A bit overpriced. Located in Sidford which is a short drive away from Sidmouth. There is plenty to do in the area near by. For the price, I would have preferred a location that was either nearer the beach or had a long drive on... More

We enjoyed a couple of days stay at the Salty Monk. A lot of thought and hard work has gone into the restaurant and bedrooms. We stayed in the Rose Room which opened on to the lovely garden. It was tastefully furnished. There was some noise from the road during the day but not obtrusive during the night. Due to... More

We chose the Salty Monk based on the previous reviews and were not disappointed. From the first hello from Andy and Annette we were made to feel welcome. It is as they say a restaurant (a very good one!) with rooms but those rooms are lovely - definitely 5*. We stayed in the Lavender Room which has a free standing... More

Thank you for your lovely review, feedback is very important to us as we try to create a great customer experience for all our guests. I am very glad that you tried our own Beetroot cured Smoked Pollock for breakfast, being unusual but also a popular alternative to a more traditional cooked breakfast, we like to be a little different...

We have been staying at the Salty Monk for over 10 years. We have always received a warm welcome from Annette & Andy. Although we have stayed in several of the rooms over the years we now stay in Heather as we can take our dogs, Lillie & Maisie, who are also made very welcome. We have eaten in both... More

We recently returned to the Salty Monk, receiving a warm welcome as we checked in. Our room, Magnolia, was beautifully furnished with comfortable chairs and lovely décor. The bed was sumptuous and the most comfortable we have slept in. The bathroom was perfect and luxurious. During our stay we dined in both the brasserie and the more formal restaurant. Both... More

Lovely people, lovely hotel, lovely food. We stayed in The Rose Room. The bed was so comfortable we are looking to purchase one ourself now. Our dog Bracken loved his dog biscuits and we loved the treats left in our room. We will be back. Thank you. Colin, Rose & Bracken.

3 course meal for two with half a bottle of wine was priced at the top of the market . I didn't pick up the tab but over £100 with coffee and petit fours being extra which we did not have. Food ok but not noteable, small portions. Choice not great if you are a vegetarian. Service efficient but not... More

We are sorry to learn that you didn't enjoy your meal as much as you should have, I am disappointed that our separate vegetarian menu didn't satisfy, its a shame because our Brasserie menu also has some vegetarian options that we should have made you aware of. Our 3 course dinner is £45.00 per head but includes canapes, an amuse... More

I have been lucky enough to have had 2 visits to The Salty Monk for afternoon tea twice in the last month. With such a lovely warm welcome from Andy and Annette we sat down in the cosy brassiere. The afternoon tea was very memorable, delicious sandwiches with of course their very own homemade bread, all the fillings were delightful.... More
