Thank you to the staff, especially the receptionist, for a lovely stay. We made a last minute booking for one night to celebrate my husband's birthday. Although there were no sea view rooms available we were given the Harbour Suite which is an exceedingly large "room". It was very clean and comfortable and the birthday card and chocolates for my...

I booked an afternoon tea for a group of friends at the hotel to celebrate a friends 40 the birthday. The hotel could not have been more accommodating. The food was beautifully presented on traditional tiered stands, the cakes were absolutely delicious and plentiful. The staff particularly Alena ( who looked after us the majority of the afternoon) were extremely... More

Great location at the end of the seafront in Sidmouth. Very attractive and comfy lounges downstairs (definitely "traditional" rather than contemporary, but that's no bad thing as far as I'm concerned). Sea-view terrace (and outdoor pool) which would be nice in the summer. Room was compact (but I didn't pay very much), with a decent shower. Excellent breakfast, with friendly... More

We spent one night here en route to Devon. The hotel was very pleasant and out room was clean, tidy, well decorated and comfortable but the bathroom was very dated - straight out of the 1960s, complete with plastic wall cabinet! And the bin had not been emptied from the previous guests. The hotel was very warm - too warm... More

I stayed for 4 nights with my Mum and The Stevenage Probus Club and had a fantastic time. The Staff are very helpful and friendly, the food is excellent and plenty of it. The rooms are comfortable and will hopefully go back when the new wing is open to see if they match up to the standard of the hotel.

Although our room was exceptionally warm and the windows didn't really allow for any extra air, we still loved our stay. The room was very large and well appointed. We loved the location of the hotel, close to town but felt secluded up on it's own hill. Wifi signal was only good in the common areas. Breakfast was very well... More

We have had four visits - the first three of which were extremely enjoyable, with good food and despite some areas being 'tired and shabby', memorable. We always looked forward to returning. Not so this time. 'Tired' has become scruffy. The meals were far below the usual standard, with limited choice and poorer quality ingredients. The staff, as ever, were... More

Since my last visit five years ago, it has had a much needed makeover and my room was light and airy in fresh pastel colours with a wonderful view out to sea from the balcony. A top notch shower with steaming water and fluffy towels completes the room. The full English breakfast really set me up for the day and... More

Visited the restaurant for Sunday Lunch to celebrate a neighbours birthday only because our usual haunt was fully booked. As a born and bred local can I first of all say that it is an absolute nonsense to rename the Hotel "The Sidmouth Harbour".Sidmouth does not have a harbour! . I know the reason but everyone knows "The Westcliffe" which... More

For the price I was expecting a faded seaside hotel, and that's exactly what this is. For a one night stay I can forgive its faults. First the plus points: the staff are professional, friendly and very helpful. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom had just been refitted. The cons: everything else needs to be painted, renewed, refitted... More
