Understated superb friendly good food immaculate clean not at all pretentious helpful staff. Hotel only a short walk from sea one way opposite the gardens with views of Jurassic coast and Jacobs ladder brilliant cakes at the clockwork cafe I cannot fault this area. The charm is antiquated quiet and dated and I don't care. It's an old England I'd...

Sidmouth is a beautiful town and parts of this hotel are lovely. The room was comfortable and the shower excellent. The food was good but service in the restaurant was disorganised and at times poor. We had a drink in the lounge, were given menus and told some one would take our orders, they didn't. Two nights we had to...

We booked for a 2 night stay, bed, breakfast and dinner. Our room, No 21 was beautifully furnished but was very warm despite not having heating on. Dinner on both nights was excellent, good service and nicely presented. We used the spa, although the pool is on the small side the facilities were very good and had no problem in...

We booked a 'special Telegraph deal' only to discover it was much cheaper booking direct with the hotel! However, we went ahead as it was non refundable and found that the upgrade to a Courtyard Room meant we overlooked the car park and refuge bins. The room was really small and the furniture too large for the size of room...

We recently returned from a nights stay. We managed to get a last minute deal with a sea view room, £50 towards dinner and breakfast. The hotel is lovely, recently refurbished, the entrance is beautiful and had some nice finishing touches, fresh flowers and a fire place. The pool and spa area is well equipped, a brilliant gym, and it...

The refurbishment of this hotel is very good . The new court yard rooms are luxurious but the hotel is badly let down by parts of its operation specifically breakfast service . Frankly the service of breakfast is awful. On all three mornings we waited up to 20 minutes for drinks and the continental selection was mainly fruit with yogurt...

Have recently enjoyed a lovely stay at the Harbour Hotel in Sidmouth. Despite a number of negative reviews regarding the rooms, my wife and I had a lovely room (room 21). The room had been recently re-furbished and was very comfortable. The only slight negative was that despite having the window fully open we did find the room a little...

We stayed here for one night with a toddler and dog. Booking was confusing as Mr & Mrs Smith allow a one night stay online but when I called the hotel direct to check their dog policy I was told they only take 2 night bookings. After a bit of haggling I was allowed to book for one night over...

We stayed here for two nights, taking my elderly mother for a weekend treat. Several issues added up to make it a disappointing experience overall - it was so hit and miss. The good points - location, standard of decor, helpfulness of receptionists and food quality were spoiled by the bad ones. Firstly, we received a courtesy call three nights...

My niece and I had two cocktails each and thought they were expensive - the bill came to £40! I think you are paying for the location and attractiveness of the hotel. Lovely bar area and excellent service. We were there from approximately 6 to 6.30 pm and a few nibbles or canapés would have been very welcome. We had...
