A lovely hotel overlooking the sea, maybe a little dated re decor but couldn't fault the friendliness & quality of everything. The quality & presentation of the food was brilliant. I'm quite a fussy person, even I couldn't fault anything we ate. We had a lovely room overlooking the sea, nice quality & spacious. It was a bonus to have... More

We tried the restaurant last night and I have no hesitation in recommending it All courses were served on really hot plates (where required) ad well presented. The menu was accompanied with an a la carte section which you can mix with the daily menu.

Took my 87 year old mother for Sunday lunch. The menu was extremely good value with plenty of choice. Excellent food well presented, very efficient and polite service in extremely pleasant surroundings. Will definitely make a return visit and would recommend this as a venue to others.

Our Probus Club has its Christmas Lunch at The Sidmouth Harbour Hotel and it is consistently excellent. The staff are very attentive and it always goes very well. We have also been for a light lunch on the veranda in the Summer and this too is of a high standard

We took advantage of a special dinner/ B&B rate. Room had 2 single beds pushed together, lovely balcony with sea view. However, room was like an oven even at 11 PM. Staff found a fan for us. The food was mediocre at best. Staff very friendly and service was great. Hotel in process of adding rooms, and is in need... More

We stayed there early May and paid extra for a sea view. We were given a small room- not war renting paying anything extra. Very disappointing food.i Hotel has good location. Bar lacked ambiance, as did the restaurant.
