The Blenheim Hotel is in an ideal location for public transport and the views are wonderful. Lovely room, comfortable beds and plenty of hot water. Very good cooked breakfast served in room by friendly staff. Ann was extremely helpful and a super hostess. Would be very to stay again.

Friendly and cheerful landlady. However "The Nest" room was tired and had wallpaper peeling off the wall. The bed linen whilst clean was worn out and coloured. White sheets should prevail to make you feel that everything is fresh. The en-suite was tiny and the shower leaked from the power shower unit. There was no hair dryer. We understood that... More

Reviews are not always favourable! we are appreciative of the candid comments made by our guests and saddened to know they did not enjoy their visit We were aware of the shower issue here and although the shower was usuable a replacement was needed indeed organised. This room was completely refurbed 18 months ago we used a professional furniture maker... More

My wife and I had the greatest pleasure of staying at this delightful B& B. The lady of the house was one of the most kindly, delightful and gentle people we encountered on our long 3-month journey. The room was clean and spacious, and looked out to the ocean. What a view!! Everything was provided, the breakfast was delivered upstairs... More

A quaint b&b but interesting and well positioned for everything in Dawlish. We were visiting friends who live in Dawlish and would stay here again when down here with no compunction. The owner was helpful and made staying there easy and friendly. The sea is across a side street and under the main rail line which gave us no inconvenience... More

The Blenheim is a friendly, old-fashioned place that is perfect for getting to Devon's main resorts by bus. breakfast in your room, which also has full cooking facilities. Bus stops right outside will take you to Exeter, Torquay, Teignmouth, Newton Abbot and, with a change, to Totnes, a delightfully different town that even has its own currency. For railway buffs,...

Had a lovely stay here. Very clean and inviting. Rooms a lovely size. View of the sea is stunning. Accepted my little dog and even bought her a treat up with our breakfasts which was such a lovely gesture. Owner was friendly and very helpful. Will definitely be booking to stay again. Could not recommend more highly!
