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

We stay here regularly for holidays and, under the new ownership of Alison and her family, it retains its lovely atmosphere, whilst having been discreetly updated. Alison is a tremendous hostess, very attentive to the needs of her guests, and delightfully ebullient. Our sea-facing apartment (The Brunel) with a small balcony suits us perfectly.The bed has a new mattress I'd... More

The rooms have recently been refurbished to a high standard. however if you prefer B&B a very good breakfast menu is available and is delivered for you to enjoy in the comfort of your room. The Blenheim is centrally situated both for town... More

I was working in Exeter over the weekend and a colleague had booked the Blenheim for me. The lady who owns it was really friendly and welcoming and helpful. The room was a little dated in appearance but everything was generally clean and well kept apart from a grubby looking stain on the carpet and a broken drawer. Having a... More
