As a frequent visitor to Dukes I have always enjoyed the lively atmosphere and good food.Nice to drop in for a coffee too. However our recent trip was totally spoilt by the noise from two yapping dogs who were totally out of control.The owners fault you might think-but not an isolated incident so perhaps Dukes should review their dog friendly...

Had a great couple of days in Sidmouth and staying at Dukes was a highlight. Despite a very busy Christmas and New Year the place looked clean and fresh and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included in our rate and was first class...don't miss the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon...also good coffee .

This was my 3rd stay in Sidmouth and best one to date. Eaten at Dukes each time but not stopped there until this week. Staff were very friendly and helpful and food up to the usual high standard. Tarquins Gin sold in bar was a bonus along with their fish and chips of "moby" type portions. All in all a... More

We were recommended Dukes by the hotel, which I think they own both places( the kingswood and Devoran hotel) and it was excellent. The bar was cosy, and the service was great, mulled wine was perfect for. December night. The menu had just been updated and we were spoilt for choice. Good was first class, and overal a great experience.

Very good location, in the very centre of town. Had a very nice room with a seaview. Very good freshly cooked breakfast with a good choice from a proper breakfast menu. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Only comment is that the room needs updating although a good size and very clean and comfortable. Would return.

I'm shell shocked, totally & utterly. We booked a set menu Christmas dinner & all paid deposits. Sadly one person could not attend. When it was mentioned to the staff they said the meal would still have to be paid for, even though she wasn't coming. Ridiculous as it may seem & tho we said we didn't want to have... More

dukessidmouth, General Manager at Dukes, responded to this review

Our team was really disappointed to read your review. Our staff were not aware of the circumstances of the cancellation of the meal, the meal was cancelled once you all sat down to eat and the food had already been prepared, we would have taken a different view had we been advised of the circumstances. We carried out your request... More

We visit Dukes every time we visit Sidmouth at this time every year. The place has a very friendly atmosphere and the staff couldn't be more helpful. The choice of drink & food is superb and outstanding quality. Although we didn't stay at Dukes this time we always come for a drink in the evenings to sit & relax. Look... More

Fantastic hotel, clean, polite and friendly staff. Lovely food and perfect relaxing get away. Shame is situated next to a nightclub so we got no sleep due to drunken brawls in the street until 4.30am on a Saturday night .
