Great place to stay, excellent location, leave the car at home as the bus stop is just outside and Dawlish railway station is only few minutes walk away. Try and book a sea view room especially the two rooms with balconies great for watching the trains go by! Alan and Anne the properties make everybody welcome and cannot do enough... More

We needed a place to stay for one night only in Dawlish and booked this as it had a kitchenette in the room. We needed to make a flask of soup and sandwiches for the next day, so this was useful. It is located on the seafront with the railway and road between you and the sea. There are only... More

I stayed at the above for three nights, it was very clean and comfortable, I felt right at home it was like having my own bedsit, Ann was extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating with my vegetarian diet and to have breakfast served in my room was a nice luxury with plenty to choose from the menu. The view overlooking the... More

My experience of the Blenheim was brilliant. The room was spacious, quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was top notch and the staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend wholly and if work or holidays take me back to Dawlish I will be staying here again.

Rooms have a lot of light and the beds are really soft. Ann is the host and is a power ball of a lady. Warmest and kindest hostess yet. She will accommodate almost any breakfast request and its really really great. Breakfast is served between 8-9:30. Rooms are kitsch and quaint but clean and lots of storage space for clothes....

Our 4th consecutive annual Sept. long weekend. Need I say more? The owners go out of their way to be helpful yet are unobtrusive. We love it here! To fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the sea in 'Baywatch' room - wonderful! Ann, thanks for your attention and see you next year !

My husband and I stayed at the Blenheim last weekend while we had the difficult task of clearing my mum's house. It became an oasis of calm and comfort to off-set the chaos of trying to pack up possessions. The room was lovely and spacious and had the unexpected addition of a small kitchen area so we could make snacks... More

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.
