The hotel was very well maintained with pleasant and helpful staff. They have parking at the rear of the hotel, but you are required to leave your keys in case they need to move your car, but this is a small price to pay due to the lack of reasonably priced parking in the vicinity. Our room, No. 6, was... More

This is a very comfortable room with 2 sofas a couple of small coffe tables, desk, tv, a kitchenette with a useful fridge. It is spotlessly clean as is the whole hotel.

Parking advertised but only a few spaces for a hotel that takes 120 guests. We had to park a mile away up the hill. Rooms dated but large and clean. No fridge, no iron, no safe. Furniture old and a little tatty. Nice side sea view. Good breakfast and waiter.

My wife and I stayed in the Faulkner Suite for two nights to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. The suite was a good size and clean. The real treat was the balcony which provided fantastic views of the sea. Having a fridge was a nice touch as enabled us to keep the bubbly chilled (very important!) The staff very kindly... More

Firstly, the location of this hotel couldn't be better - right on the waterfront, I had a great view of the sea. The décor is classic and pretty fresh. My room looked recently decorated to a good standard. The bathroom was clean and presentable. My room didn't have double glazing, though it looked like a lot of them did. Without... More

I had a third floor room with amazing views of the sea. If you like listening to the waves then you can sit for hours! I didn't eat here but the restaurant area looked clean and very well presented. The room itself was lovely and clean. Sidmouth and surrounding area are gorgeous. There are some great walks and the shops... More

The service was excellent, the only slight reservation would be that there was not always enough staff manning the bar. Room was right at the top,the first room offered was unsuitable as it had a low beam right across the room,we asked for a replacement room this was done immediately,with offers of help.
