My brother and myself decided to visit Dawlish for a couple of days on spec earlier this week to explore our childhood holiday haunts. We had not booked any accommodation in advance, and arrived in Dawlish at mid-day on Tuesday to try and find B and B unsuccessfully. Spotting Ann, the owner of the Blenheim, busily watering her plants outside the entrance of the very smart 'pink' Blenheim House, right on the sea front, I was pleased to hear that she had just had a room vacated.
We were offered the 'Lookout' on the ground floor, facing the sea, and it was everything we could have asked for. It was light, bright, clean and fresh, with an amazing view of the sea. The close proximity of the railway is not an issue as windows are double glazed, though we kept them open as the weather was amazing.
The large room had two comfy single beds, a small clean kitchen/diner area, and even armchairs. There were tea making facilities, a tv, and a freshly decorated and clean shower room/toilet with bath towels. The crowning glory though, had to be Ann's amazing breakfasts, served at a time to suit us, in our room. These full English breakfasts kept us going til lunch, and nothing was too much trouble for Ann who is absolutely wonderful, and made us feel like family members rather then hotel guests.
We would have no hesitation in recommending the Blenheim House to anyone who wants a clean and comfy, well located place to stay whilst visiting Dawlish. Both my brother and myself would definitely book there with family/friends in the future, it is 'wonderful'.
