If you are looking for that homogenised sterile standardised type of hotel then read no further.
Sidholme provides a welcoming atmosphere with the anbience of a bygone era: character, quirky, charm and chandeliers. Thrown in is a big heated indoor swimming pool and a large music

The blue plaque on the wall states that this was the home of Professor Lindemann. It appears that was until 1931. Since then it has been well maintained but despite ensuite improvements it is still fairly basic.

This is such a beautiful old building with meticulously, gorgeous grounds. There is also an amazing old music room with chandeliers and grand staircase which creates a rather impressive first impression. I was in a rush and did not read the reviews as I normally would do....big m

We booked the day before going so didn't check out reviews. On arrival we were pleased with the location, beautiful building and grounds. When we went to our bedroom we were really disappointed with the standard, extremely basic and shabby and no shower. The receptionist, who was

Has the heating at the swimming pool been fixed yet? I was told by reception that the water is kept at 31 and the air 33 but a family friend with a young baby who stayed recently said it was never that warm.
I've seen the pool, but never used it. A temp of 31 is extremely warm! A temperature of 29/30 would still be lovely and it did look very inviting for a hotel pool.

Hi. We are looking for accommodation in Sidmouth and have heard about the annexe at Sidholme hotel. We have some reservations about shared bathroom - how many rooms share each bathroom? There are 4 of us and we would need 2 twin rooms or 1 twin and 2 singles. Look forward to hearing any advice.
"avoid the annexe"
"Don't stay here"
"Ask for an upgraded room. I was told they are working slowly through the hotel decorating."
"Unable to do this as it was a day trip."
"Just tell them what you want and if they can they will get it for you. Most of the rooms overlook the wonderful Gardens"
$62 - $90 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
