We were on our way down to Sidmouth and fortunately for us we came across this gem ! We were escorted around the hotel - a 700 year old residence steeped in history ! We had a ground floor very large premium room with arched door to the patio and gardens. With plenty of cupboard/drawer space TV tea coffee facilities. Immaculately clean, with shower room ! Breakfast was lovely in a beautiful large bright room, with selection of cereals/fruits etc and then cooked perfectly full English or kippers - cooked to order ! I don’t usually eat eggs but wanted to sample one from one of hens that ran loose in their garden - best omelette ever ! Thank you for that Dan ! Finally brings us to hosts Dan & Megan, so accommodating and helpful with local knowledge to assist with our passion for walks ! Friendly home from home experience with large bar area too!Fab few days cannot recommend highly enough !

Sidmouth may not be the first place on people’s minds when they are thinking of taking a relaxing break in the UK, but a stay at the Woodlands Hotel is enough to make it top of the list! Dan & Megan provide a fabulous place to stay, with beautifully decorated rooms, spotless bathrooms and a wonderful, relaxing, home from home atmosphere. The beds are comfortable and allow a great night’s sleep. Pets are allowed at this hotel and there is a beautiful, large rear garden to relax in the sun. Although pets are allowed at the hotel, those without pets will not see, nor smell any evidence of this, as the hotel is spotlessly clean and fresh smelling. It makes for the perfect setting, whether you are with, or without, man’s best friend. The hotel has a well stocked ‘honesty’ bar, allowing guests to relax as if they were in their own home. The restaurant area is a pet free area and the quality of the food is excellent. Dan, Megan and the staff do a great job of making you feel welcome and ensure you have a wonderful stay. I can definitely recommend this for anyone wanting a relaxing break, whilst being walking distance to the town and seafront.

9 of us booked accommodation to participate in a local running event. Dan & Megan listened to our needs and exceeded our expectations. The welcome, the food, the flexibility in ensuring everything suited our needs was exceptional. I feel 100% sure we will be back. I see no way that anybody could ask for more or be disappointed with their visit. I’ve stayed in a good number of hotels and this stands out above the rest. Thank you guys, see you again next year if not before 👍

The rooms and bathroom were clean, the bed lining and towels were fresh and the atmosphere friendly, welcoming and relaxing. Great Hosts! There was a good selection of both cold and hot foods for breakfast and good coffee. There is a lovely conservatory with a pool table and sofas to relax in. The hotel is walking distance to the centre of Sidmouth, would like to go back for longer next time!

We had to travel to Devon this week and elected to stay in the Woodlands Hotel in Sidmouth on a B&B basis. There were few other gueste at the hotel and the weather was dreadful but we were received warmly and given a tour of facilities. The room was clean and comfortable, the double bed a very good size and the bathroom adequate if a little small, though with piping hot water and good shower pressure. Facilities were better than you might expect from a 2 star establishment with a good honesty bar and plenty of room to sit and read or relax. Breakfast was fine, a full English offering served quickly and hot. The location is very good, being within walking distance of the town centre and the wonderful sea front; and if you have never been to Sidmouth before it is well worth a visit, with a good beach, wonderful cliff walks and views; and a quirky and attractive range of shops and sights. It also provides a good base for visting along the coast to jurassic Dorset or back towards the Exe Estuary and East Devon's attractive villages as well. All in all a pleasant visit, with the hotel offering good facilities and comfort at reasoable cost. Oh, and they have a beautiful pair of labradors as well!
