“Excellent accommodation, superb breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

A recent visit to friends ‘down south’ and I chanced upon the Glendevon, a delightful, family run guesthouse conveniently located in the beautiful coastal resort of Sidmouth.

Following the warmest of welcomes I was shown to my large, bright, airy and scrupulously clean accommodation. My room contained an extremely comfortable bed and had a spacious, dedicated lounge area that housed two classic armchairs, flatscreen TV and an abundant refreshment tray. It was so nice to see a full jar of superior branded coffee; plenty of hot chocolate, posh biscuits and an individual tea caddy stuffed full of quality teabags, rather than the usual couple of sachets of inferior coffee!

Indeed, it was this attention to detail that characterised my stay at the Glendevon. Initially, my room was a little too warm for my liking but a quick chat with proprietors, Gerry and Kate and I was shown how to individually control its temperature. My spacious ensuite was excellent with a refreshing, powerful shower and a great array of toiletries.

A wonderful night’s sleep was followed by a perfect full English breakfast, which more than set me up for the day!

I would wholehearted recommend the Glendevon. Anyone looking for meticulously clean, comfortable accommodation that is complemented by excellent facilities, friendly hosts and the most superb breakfast will not be disappointed!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Friendly family run B&B in what was a large double fronted town house; ideally situated for exploring the town, sea front, Connaught Gardens, public swimming pool and bus routes to Exeter and nearby towns but in a quiet corner. Rooms well furnished, comfy beds, TV and tea making; nice residents lounge and separate dining room. Everything well maintained and squeaky-clean. Best full English breakfast in Sidmouth! Ample free on-street parking, currently unrestricted, and easy car routes in and out of town. Brilliant for coast path, local walking and exhibitions at West Point. Sidmouth is an unspoiled quintessentially English resort and The Glendevon completely in keeping - we keep going back year after year and wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

This rather reminds me of my grandmother's shoes, solid, hard wearing, a bit dated, practical but will seemingly go on forever. There is nothing fancy about the place but it meets ones needs, unless you want an early start. breakfast is served at 8.45 without exception, which can be a nuisance for those with an early start.

Good value for money
