Booked this hotel last minute and got a very good deal. We stayed in the new Courtyard rooms and they are fabulous. Just like being in New England, the decor, facilities, everything excellent. White Company toiletries very impressive. Wish we could have stayed all week! The hotel is an old typical seaside hotel which is being refurbished. The bar and... More

Having recently stayed in your lovely hotel, I would like to apply for a post as either Hotel Receptionist or Waitress. It was clear from my visit that you could have vacancies for either. On check in the receptionist was obviously new and while she did her best with someone helping her she clearly was not on the 'arrivals page'... More

I needed to stay in Sidmouth due to an event for work, I wanted to stay near to the sea and needed a hotel which had a car park but did not want to pay an expensive room rate which tends to happen when staying by the sea. I checked out several hotels but those on the front with a... More

Recently visited this hotel with friends for a four nighter half board break. The hotel is situated high on the west cliff of Sidmouth overlooking the sea. Super view, pleasant gardens around the hotel and reasonable parking. The hotel is situated a short walk (5 min) away from the town which is a busy and attractive town with plenty of... More

Was a little skeptical when we pulled up and didn't expect too much, I was sweetly surprised as shown in the photos. The hotel room was beautiful, 1 month old and everything had been thought about. Everything you needed was there and staff were all very helpful and friendly. Bath, Shower, nespresso machine, mini bar, TV etc. only thing I... More

We stayed at this hotel as a night away before baby is born in 3 weeks. When we arrived we were early for check in and went off into sidmouth to kill a couple of hours before we could access the room at 1500. The hotel was a typical seaside hotel from the off and we were th youngest guests... More

We had visited the Harbour Hotel in Salcombe which is chic and fresh. This hotel should be called the Westcliffe until the group has refurbished it in their style. Currently very dated ( 1980s) and needs painting. We had a seaview room with lovely views and a terrace but there was paint chipped off the door and architrave, old furniture,... More

We reserved one of the new courtyard rooms and were lucky enough to get one with a balcony and sea view. The rooms are fabulous - think New England seaside. Each room has a Nespresso coffee machine, with gin and sherry provided as a little treat. The short walk to the main building is a complete contrast - think swags... More

OK, now to be fair.... the first night we accepted a tiny, tiny, double room because it was the only room left. The receptionist warned me upon booking that it was "not up to standard" if I read through the lines. Well that room was definitely not up to standard. It was not just because it was small. It was...
