“A great overnight experience however...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2014

On our way to Cornwall we slept at Hotel Elizabeth in Sidmouth.
The welcome by Sheena at arrival was warmed and professional.
Our room was very clean and first class with a large bathroom.
Food was very good and breakfast Top !!
Highly recommended !
Only a little "complain" : the free house next door was a little noisy after 11pm and we had difficulty to find sleep....
If we come back we will make sure to get a room at the front overlooking the sea.

Room Tip: in heavy season avoid side room as they could be noisy at night...

This was like stepping back fifty years......but in a good way. Lovely old hotel with fabulous sea views. Close to beach, shops etc. attentive friendly staff, very good food. Room small but comfortable and well appointed with a balcony. Unfortunately it was very noisy.....traffic, people and seagulls. Couldn't sit on balcony because seagull pooped all over the chairs......and in my handbag!! We were lucky not to get it all over us! There were an enormous number. Limited parking....but we were lucky. Would love to return but need to take earplugs.

Have just returned from a 2 night stay here. The hotel was lovely - very clean and the staff were very helpful - nothing was too much trouble. We were able to leave our bags there first thing in the morning and they were put into our room for us later. We had room 26 which had a lovely view out over the sea and as we had gone for the festival we were able to watch what was going on along the promenade. Breakfast was lovely too and, again, nothing too much trouble - plenty of tea and coffee!

Room Tip: We had free wifi but only in reception/lounge area but that was no problem.

The second time we've stayed here and even better than before. Sidmouth is a wonderful old seaside town with bags of character - and the Elizabeth lies at the heart of that. We received a great welcome which set the tone for an excellent experience. The hotel is a classic rambling old hotel but nicely adapted to the modern era. We had a seaview room with balcony and great views of the promenade and the sea. There was always something to watch. The free guest parking is a big plus in this busy town that was built long before the car.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

Would highly recommend.

Excellent location on the sea front with guest parking the Elizabeth is a terrific hotel.. The staff were very attentive and helpful, especially with elderly guests.
Clean and bright rooms, ( ours was an east side with lovely views of Lyme bay towards Charmouth).
A cosy bar and excellent food( Dinner and a very comprehensive breakfast)
We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: An east side room affords views of sea and cliffs above town
