It was a year ago my wife and I visited The Blenheim just 4 days after Ali had taken over the ownership. As you will see by my previous review we were very impressed. Almost impossible to believe it was even better on this visit, we had a fantastic room (10) on the top floor with a wonderful view overlooking... More

Stayed here for one night to visit friends nearby. Very central location, parking right outside and large comfortable room. Friendly hosts and lovely cooked breakfast delivered to the room, which worked very well. Would definitely stay here again.

I've just returned from a 1 night stay at the Blenheim and all I can say is 'wow'! We'd booked pretty last minute for my mum & I, along with my 18 month old daughter just for a mini break by the sea. Even before our stay the customer service was top notch! I'd rang in advance to say that... More

I had a ground floor room with great views. I was happy with the trains that passed outside my window (you may not be). The most important two things were -GREAT location next to a pub on the sea front near train station and Town (everything in walking distance and GREAT host - Alison could not have been nicer.

The Blenheim is a lovely place to be the sea and train line and facing the station is a dream room, no other room can compete. The accommodation has a lovely sized room for my husband and I with a toddler too and room to play. I suffer fybromyalgia and sciatica and the bed, I must say was so comfortable... More

Everything you could ask for is included at the Blenheim. Me and my boyfriend stayed last weekend and woke up to a gorgeous breakfast every morning, in our very clean large room. We couldn't of asked for anything better. Will definitely be returning soon, had such a great time. I would recommend to couples and family's.

Myself, my partner plus parents have been coming to the Blenheim for many years now. We always take two rooms for our annual summer holiday and have to say new owners have made the Bleinheim the number one place to stay in Dawlish. Lovely decorated and comfy rooms and the beds gave us two weeks of the best nights sleep... More

5 of us visited Dawlish and The Blenheim for a 1 night stay, in August. We booked the 2 rooms from the internet so were not quite sure what to expect, although we had read the good customer feedback. We were pleasantly surprised. The 2 rooms were large with a kitchenette, including a fridge, sink and a hob. The beds... More
