We stayed at the Bedford hotel for 5 nights. First impressions was that the reception area was rather dowdy and dull and not particularly inviting as we entered the hotel. However we did manage to get a room with panoramic views overlooking the jurassic coastline. The room had a balcony with 2 nice chairs although I didn't feel comfortable or... More

We are are a voluntary group who run a club on a Tuesday- feeding and looking after a few elderly locals. We took a trip down to Sidmouth for coffee and lunch at The Bedford. From beginning to end the service was excellent - friendly, without being overpowering. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Thank you and hope to... More

Room (17) was very clean with comfortable bed and ample storage. Bathroom was obviously quite new and again very clean, unfortunately it is very small with a large very hot towel rail from which i suffered a nasty burn on my hip. The television is also much too small for the size of the room. Parking a big issue

What a great find. We were booked in just for one night as we were walking the Jurassic Coast. The staff were very welcoming and we were delighted with our room which was on the corner of the building on the first floor with a large terrace overlooking the sea. It was well decorated and had a superb bathroom with... More

We were with a coach party and stayed at the Bedford Hotel Sidmouth. The Hotel was right on the front just a road to cross to get to the beach. The room was very clean with plenty of drawer and hanging space. The beds were comfortable and there was two arm chairs. The TV was small but could receive all... More

We booked the Bedford Hotel last minute for the May bank holiday, with it having availability and the low price we were not expecting much, HOW WRONG WE WERE!! Superb location, lovely room with balcony and sea view, spotlessly clean, fantastic breakfast, and best of all lovely staff !!
