“THE BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

We stayed at Berwick House in Sidmouth for two nights on 1st and 2nd November 2013. Although only a short break Susan and David made us extremely welcome. The rooms were of a very high standard also the en-suites. The breakfasts were excellent and also catered for gluten free diets. Should we need to stay in the area again we would certainly return to this lovely B & B and also the delicious breakfasts.

A very warm welcome from David and Sue who were very accommodating. I had the biggest en-suite in Room 4, which was nicely done, and the breakfast was outstanding. It was very clean and tidy, even the peagravel drive. I would stay there again and it's worth mentioning that this is one of the few b&b's with on-site parking. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the prom/sea front. I do feel, however, that the decor could do with a bit of updating.

Dear Debbie,

We appreciate the time you have taken to review us. Thank you too for your kind comments. Just to say .. we have updated/redecorated every bedroom and or en-suite over the past three years. Regarding your comments about updating the decor we feel this is subjective and being that our house was built in 1840 it would look rediculas to try to make the rooms look modern. We are trying to create a homely atmosphere, one where people feel relaxed. In fact, one of my visitors told me they stayed somewhere where the walls were painted red and they really didn't like it. We have many comments in our visitors book like "home from home" which is why we continue to keep our decor pretty low key and neutral.

Kindest regards
Susan and David

This is our second stay at Berwick House. David and Sue are excellent hosts and do all they can to make your stay enjoyable - such nice people.
We again did not stay in the main house but in the annex (loft room) which is comfortable and exceptionally clean.
The breakfasts are fantastic - the Full English is cooked to perfection!
The location is ideal for the shops and seafront. We certainly would recommend this cosy and friendly B&B.

Excellent right from the start! A lovely welcome by Sue and David and right through our stay nothing was too much trouble - we feel we've made some new friends.
Room number 2 was very comfortable and the ensuite well thought out and immaculate.
Perfectly cooked and presented breakfast were a great start to each day, with Sue's fruit, Greek yogurt and granola being worth a special mention. We really love Sidmouth, having stayed there many times before, but would never dream of staying anywhere else but Berwick House on future visits.

Yet again had a super holiday, Sue and David excellent hosts. Breakfast delicious, especially Sue's home made bread. Room was spotless and comfortable. Would recommend Berwick House to anyone, as you could not get a more friendly B&B.

Anyone who stays with David and Susan will not be disappointed. A friendly welcome with tea and cake on arrival. Fantastic cooked breakfast done to perfection. Berwick House is immaculately clean. Our double bedroom was a good size with ensuite facilities. Our bed was amazingly comfortable. The B & B is situated just a few minutes level walk to the town centre and sea front yet not noisy. David and Susan have done everything they can to ensure their guests are 100% happy with their stay. We definitely were, and if we came to Sidmouth again we would stay at Berwick House.

Room Tip: Our ensuite double room was No. 1 on the front of the house. Very comfortable bed

Dear S and R,
Thank you very much for your lovely review which we appreciated so much.
We were pleased you enjoyed room 1 with it's comfy bed. We feel it is so important to have a quality bed to sleep in when not at home as it sort of makes up for it being different to the one you are used to.
Best wishes David and Susan
