..... but I consider £175/night bed & breakfast just a bit steep to make it vfm even if it was one of their best rooms. That said, what this hotel did well it did very well. Couldn't fault the quality of décor, everywhere public and our room seemed recently refurbished. Staff were particularly pleasant and friendly. I would recommend Pynes... More

Loved my 5 nights here and will definitely return. Management friendly and helpful, food excellent, service a bit erratic but waiters smiled a lot. My single room was great. Hotel was spotless and hand rails placed just where needed.

Having decided to break ourselves out of the habit of usually ending up in Brighton for a weekend away, and having the luxury of time for a two night break due to the Bank Holiday, we scanned down the map towards the west. We skipped past Lyme Regis, nice place but been there, balked at the prospect of heading the... More

Lovely hotel with excellent service but their policy on cancellations is ridiculous. We again booked a night this year but 5 weeks before staying we had to cancel, something we have never done before. We knew the policy of no deposit refund which compares most unfavourably with all other places we have stayed and as we knew they would re... More

Ideally situated by the beach in Sidmouth. Food very good. Try the hotel restaurant The Pyne for excellent food and wine. The calamari starter is wonderful. Limited free parking for 6 cars at the back. Congratulations to all the staff for their welcome and hard work.
