Great location. If you are interested in Queen Victoria it's a must. Decor a bit dated. I can only speak about the room we stayed in which was Kent. My partner used the swimming pool which he was pleased to say was good. Dinner had to be booked. By the time we arrived and wanted to book for the same... More

We stayed here on a overnight visit while taking my older children to camp. We had a family room and the staff were so nice and polite and really made us welcome. This hotel is very close to the sandy area of the beach and to the town centre would stay again anytime. Thanks so much our room was lovely... More

My husband, son and I stayed at the hotel at the end of July in a family room with en suite called Andrew. This was a lovely bright clean room, very tastefully furnished and decorated. The public areas of the hotel have many references to royalty in pictures and lovely antiques. Its a real little piece of old England but... More

Many Thanks for making a review, your opinion is very important to us; we try and change the menu according to any feedback and use seasonal west country produce as much as possible. The menu changes daily because we are still basically a sea side family hotel with visitors staying at least 3 nights. We hope we may have the... More

Stayed here recently for a week.Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Our room (Duke) was very comfortable, well furnished and large. We liked the quietness of the place, the gardens and the hotel's proximity to the sea-front (five minute's stroll). Breakfasts were good and varied, marred by terrible tea and coffee. Probably the biggest plus is that it's in Sidmouth... More

Thank you very much for making a review. It can of course gives future visitors a more in depth view.

We decided to go to this hotel as I had stayed there previously on about 3 occasions, but as I was on my own then I was lucky to get a single room, viz the GARDEN ROOM - which was great! I therefore decided to take a friend with me on 16th July this year.. Apart from the musty smell,... More

Very nice hotel in a quiet location. We checked in on arrival at 20:15 in the evening which was nice and simple. Rooms were very comfortable and tidy. Unfortunately, we just missed the chance to eat in the hotel, so wondered into Sidmouth for a fish and chip supper. Got back to the hotel at around 22:00 and decided to... More

Thank you for making a review. We are sorry that you were unable to book for dinner. As we are off the main thorough fare our restaurant is mainly resident guests; it is advisable to book in advance as all produce is fresh on a daily basis so we cater for the number booked plus a few.

It's a cute hotel and the best thing about it is the staff who are friendly, welcoming and helpful. Yes the room wasn't five star but for the time of year, on the English Riviera...it's not bad value. Smallish room but everything you'd need. The suites looked nice as we peeped through a vacant door. The whole place is over... More

This is the third year running that I have taken my elderly mother to Sidmouth and I would not consider looking at any other hotel. The welcoming and friendly staff, the lovely garden, fantastic food and comfortable rooms are just perfect. Its quiet location within easy level access to seafront, public gardens and town centre add to its charms. No... More

We have been going to this hotel for many years. It has a charm all if it's own . The food and the service are all excellent and as the hotel is family run there is usually one of the family in attendance to oversee things. The hotel is also perfectly situated and as it is not on the front... More
