Just returned from a lovely few days at The Westcliff. On arrival, we were surprised to find that despite only paying for a standard double room, we were staying in a suite! Beautiful room with large seating area, massive bed, dressing table etc. Lovely surprise. It was a little dated and rough around the edges as it was in the... More

I booked the Sidmouth Harbour Hotel for my mothers birthday celebration for her and 12 friends and family. The hotel location is simply perfect, the views over Sidmouth are wonderful and there is plenty of space inside and out, we were able to fit in easily (even though there was a function in the next room) and we were not...

The hotel tries to pretend to be top end but doesn't deliver. You pay top dollar but they fall down on substance. We stayed in the new courtyard rooms which were potentially very good but the bathroom fan ran all night; the light in the wardrobe stayed on all the time the safe didn't lock. Our friends who were staying... More

Stayed just one night. Stayed in room 9 which is a side room but the view of the coast is fantastic. Decor is tired as this room has not been updated which we were told is in progress in the old part of the hotel. Breakfast was disappointing given the price. Cold buffet choice is limited, good choice of hot... More

In it's heyday this would have been a very grand hotel in an ideal location overlooking the coast & beautiful floral town of Sidmouth. Currently the hotel is being extended & renovated, which is extremely noisy on weekdays & severely restricts parking availability. Meanwhile the interior of the main building, apart from the ground floor, is in an extremely tired... More

Had an absolutely terribly stay at the Sidmouth Harbour Westcliff. It was during the festival, so the room was very expensive and I was overlooking a construction site. I understand the need for hotels to renovate - but it is completely rude to paying guests to have the builders starting at 7 AM. I got at the most 4 or... More

We have been to the Westcliffe hotel for about seven years now and stayed in a superior sea view room, we were not disappointed. We usually stay in the same room so that we can see the moon shining over the sea while lying in bed. However this year we did have a phone call the day before we were... More

We spent a pleasant weekend at the Westcliff, as the locals still refer to it . This hotel has some pedigree but has been taken over by a small south coast chain and is however in transition. The current building work is a great distraction in that parking is very difficult , noise is considerable and work seems not be... More

We have stayed here several times. Other reviewers are right when they say some areas of the hotel are in need of an update; however, we have always found the staff friendly, the breakfast good, rooms spotlessly clean and the location is second to none. This time, however, we were very disappointed. Parking is extremely difficult due to the building... More

Stayed here two nights for Wife's birthday. Firstly could not park in hotel car park as spaces taken up by non residents. Very rude staff telling my wife she was stupid for not knowing how to lock the room door. Room clean but small and stuffy, no air con just ceiling fan circulating warm air .I have had better Full...
