We stayed in room 17 in the Woodlands Hotel between 3rd and the 6th August 2020. The Hotel is in an excellent location and the owners and hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was a good size and very clean. The best thing about the Hotel was the evening food. Although the menu was limited, the food was very well cooked and presented by the resident hotel chef. Highly recommended, we will visit again.

This was my first stay in a hotel in the "new normal" world so I wasn't sure what to expect. I needn't have worried. The Woodlands team went out of their way to make sure everything felt as relaxed and welcoming as possible and went out of their way to help me with a couple of queries on arrival. As I was travelling alone I booked a single. I'm used to single rooms being small, pokey and stuck at the back of the hotel but this room was large, bright and with a lovely juliet balcony of its own. A joy. Don't be put off by the apparent distance from the sea - it's actually only a very short walk (less than 5 minutes) and Sidmouth itself is a lovely town worth exploring beyond its beach. Highly recommended. Looking forward to returning :)

Was so pleased to have found this place at short notice for a weekend stay. Great quiet location but only minutes from the seafront and town centre. Nice to get car parking on site. Warm welcome, comfortable well appointed room and a lovely lounge and garden to relax in. Didn’t have dinner but the menu looked delicious. Breakfast was very good.

A wonderful weekend celebrating my daughter’s 50th birthday. Megan and Dan were exemplary in their attention to detail and made us feel very special guests. The room on the ground floor was spacious and delightful looking onto the garden. The food for such a large group was very tasty and served without any delays. Would highly recommend this family run attractive hotel.

The food was great quality and locally sourced . I will definitely go back. The owners Dan and Megan made us feel a part of their family!
