We spent a night here on our way back from the west country. Booked it as a luxury treat. First the good points. Our room (nos 31) was on the top floor overlooking the sea front - great views over the picturesque thatched houses on the sea front and along the sea front. We also had a bay window with... More

I've stayed in a lot of hotels, and this one is very good indeed. It can only be a matter of time before it's awarded a fourth star. The decor is the work of a seriously talented designer and the location is quite simply perfect. From the lady at reception, to the restaurant manager, to the young man who served... More

The refurbishment is almost complete than the rooms and public areas have been completed to a very high standard with beautiful bathrooms and excellent decor. The recently opened Spa is really, really lovely and very well done indeed. I... More

This was my second visit within a month due to a good offer on Secret Escapes and I am sad to say it was a little disappointing due to noise levels which are somewhat out of their control. Apart from traffic noise, our room was situated by the entrance and there does not appear to have a "service entrance". During... More

The food was excellent, service was exemplary and the room albeit very small for a double was of a superb standard with everything that was required including slippers and robe. Bar staff were cheerful and inviting and ample breakfast available. The building work was going on however, I was only there one night so for me the constant echo of... More

Another good visit here. Very good quality with what feels like good staffing levels and some greet decor throughout. They fitted us in at the last minute and made our West Country weekend complete. We'll be back. Sidmouth is always a joy to visit.

The Good - the Hotel occupies a splendidly elevated position overlooking Sidmouth. The rooms are well appointed, clean and in our case with complimentary Gin & Sherry. The Bad - We arrived at the check-in time of 3pm, dropped the cases in reception but could not find a parking space, the receptionist said they were fully booked and the Spa... More

We stayed here for three nights and were pleasantly surprised, having previously read some of the more negative reviews. The hotel was in the last stages of a comprehensive refurbishment programme with all the main public areas finished. Although some balcony partitions were being built below our room, we did not see or hear any building work. We had a... More
