We booked two rooms. The family suite and a balcony room for my wife and me plus our daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandchildren on the day of the Dawlish Air Show. We watched the show from the balcony and had, quite literally, the best view in Dawlish. Our rooms were just superb and the family suite was incredible. Anne was... More

A central location, within walking distance to the railway station and bus stops for Torquay, Exeter and Teinmouth. Ann is very welcoming and pleasant. The rooms were basic but nicely decorated and clean. It took a couple of nights to get used to the frequent trains going by, but the views overlooking the sea more than compensated for this. We...

This is a wonderful place to stay in Dawlish-particualrly if you want to self cater -its very different from the usual corporate hotels that seem to be everywhere now-the hostess is very friendly and goes out of her way to make sure you are ok and have everything you need -the rooms are exceptionally clean and all home comforts are...

Clean and tidy but dated. Very welcoming though and breakfast brought to your room which is a bit strange as for the size of the building it should have a dining room. They can only cook 4 breakfasts at a time meaning you get a breakfast slot which meant hanging around if you end up towards the end of the... More

Lovely place just in centre of small village with sea wiev. Kept in old clasical traditions with very warm velcome and all time care. Old, nice, hand made tiles in bathroom. Clean, comfortable beds, full English breakfest. One small minus trains passing very close and some noise with open windows in summer, but not at night.

I took my Mum for a night in Dawlish for her 80th Birthday as her parents lived there and she has fond memories of the place. We stayed at the Blenheim B&B and really liked it. Anne the owner is just lovely, and it is unsurprising to me that she has been running this place successfully for 26 years. Firstly... More

I've stayed at this Bed and Breakfast four times now and would certainly recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in the Dawlish area. The location is outstanding; not only immediately next to the centre of town, rail station and bus stops, but right on the seafront with many rooms enjoying sea views that are actually better than sitting on...
