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

We stay in lots of 4 and 5 Star hotels and top quality B & B's and in our experience this is simply a 'good' quality B and B charging excessive prices. We didn't mind paying the £150 charged during 'low season', but it is completely unthinkable for a place like this to not include breakfast. We had not realized... More

Beautiful room with comfortable bed but o that road. Warm weather so needed the window eon but the noise from the road made it impossible. The other disappointment was the restaurant where you can only eat if you want a full all courses dinner otherwise you are consigned to the bar for a bar meal. Not very inviting and so... More

We were concerned to read that your stay was not as great as it should have been, in normal weather conditions the road noise is normally kept out by the triple glazing in the bedroom. Our Garden room restaurant serves a 2 and 3 course menu for a fixed price. The Abbots Den Brasserie is open for Coffees lunches, afternoon... More

Being regular visitors to Sidmouth we have stayed in most of the hotels and inns but for some unfathomable reason had never stayed at the Salty Monk before. Now I doubt that we could stay anywhere else. We opted for one of the larger rooms with a sitting area and this was a good choice. There is road noise, but... More

We stayed for one night on our way down to Cornwall. Our room was lovely and spacious, with wonderful little touches to make our stay feel like home. We had dinner in the restaurant and had the most incredible meal. What an amazing chef! Our hosts graciously allowed us to stay for a couple of hours after checking-out so that... More

We have just come back from a long weekend at The Salty Monk. We stayed in the Magnolia Room which was lovely. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in in a hotel and the bed linen was lovely - high thread count for sure,! We ate at the restaurant on Friday night. I had the... More

Loved this B&B with a luxury finish! I felt very much at home, breakfast was amazing. The room was cozy, but had great amenities - loved the sherry, tea, biscuits and fruit. Location is great for seeing the local sights but also quiet at night to relax. Thank you!

Dinner was phenomenal - we were astonished by the quality of each course, the lemon tart was to die for, the price for the dinner was good value. We should have just had dinner there. Whilst the room was spotlessly clean it was minuscule, the shower room was well fitted out but tiny, the bed was comfortable but sleep was... More
