A delightful hotel in the delightful town of Sidmouth. Friendly, enthusiastic service with a genuine desire to please. Clean room and, importantly, a very comfortable bed and an excellent breakfast. The hotel is well placed being a short walk from the seafront and town and has the advantage of parking on site. Everything is within easy reach. We are frequent... More

Regular visitor to Sidmouth and tried the Woodlands for the first time for a 2-night break. The hotel location is around 5-10 minutes walk to the seafront down a slight incline (also convenient for the shops and theatre). The hotel is the opposite of some of the larger ones on the seafront - family-run with a more personal service. Room... More

I had only booked for 6 nights but while there I decided to book an extra night as I was enjoying the hotel, the staff and family and the Folk Festival music being played at the Woodlands. The food was excellent. One minor quibble the Wi Fi struggles to work in some parts of this old building but it was... More

We were made to feel welcome by all the staff. All our requests were met with cheerful efficiency and we enjoyed our 2 day stay. Our room was spacious and well-equipped with a large comfortable bed. The en-suite bathroom was little cramped. We ate in the hotel both nights and the service was excellent and the food was good. A... More

We booked blind and at short notice for a weekend stay. When we arrived we met at reception by our host who was immediately personable and very helpful. Our room was on the ground floor with a French window leading directly onto the patio at the rear of the property. The room itself was very well presented and we immediately... More

Hotel has an excellent location for all that Sidmouth has to offer. Our lovely room overlooked a beautifully kept garden and patio area. Great lounge and lovely sunny conservatory. Evening meals are on offer and the breakfast was really good. A very warm welcome from Dan and Megan.

We have never been to Sidmouth or indeed the Woodlands before, so were pleasantly surprised with both. We received a warm welcome from Dan who showed us around. We were delighted to have found a dog friendly hotel and indeed it was. The location of the hotel is fantastic - town centre and prom within easy walking distance. The free... More

This is a lovely family owned and run hotel. We were made to feel very welcome and loved what the owners have achieved with their makeover. Breakfast was superb, we didn't get the chance to try dinner but the menu looked good. Will return when we're next in the Sidmouth area. 5 minute walk from the seafront with free parking.... More

A very warm welcome awaited me and my two little dogs at this very well maintained, beautifully and tastefully decorated hotel. Family run, nothing was too much trouble. My large garden room opened out into a very well kept garden, ideal for my dogs as it was completely enclosed. Good food served in a bright airy dining room - breakfast... More

Stayed for 3 nights during Sidmouth Folk Week. Wonderfully clean accommodation , everything you need for your stay provided. Friendly and welcoming staff. Breakfasts were excellent with a wide range of choices, nice too that friends / family can book in for meals. The 'Dine and Dash' evening meals are a brilliant idea for Folk Week, due to so much...
