Another excellent week spent at The Blenheim. We don't really need to say a lot, because this is our 15th consecutive year spent in Dawlish, all at the Blenheim, so that probably says it all!! Lovely weather, & we were lucky enough to get a Balcony room upgrade. Thanks for that Ann. Roll on 2015.

The first time I've stayed at a bed and breakfast and had to provide our own towels.......and not got breakfast. Not impressed. The room was quite dated but the bed was comfy. Parking was next to non existent (unless you pay) but thats not unusual for the area. Don't think I'd bother to return.

We inform all our guests about parking on booking i.e. whether space available on car park or the need to park on street free of charge or in local car parks. Also all bookings are taken on a self catering, room only or bed and breakfast basis. This guest was booked in on a room only basis therefore breakfast was... More

We spent a week here self-catering in August and found The Blenheim to be everything we expected. Our room was Baywatch, on the second floor facing the seafront. The sea views are excellent and the room was clean and comfortable and good value for the money we paid. The location is ideal if you want to explore other areas in... More

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
