Sid Valley Country Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Sidbury
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Just got home from an 8 day stay here and I haven't got a bad word to say about the place, the location is idyllic, the cottage ( The Granary) was spotless, comfortable, fully equipped, and in our opinion the best position of all the cottages as it was about 15 steps from the fabulous pool had a great private patio and endless views up and down the valley! The staff were great and the owners Sarah and Steve couldn't do enough for you even to the point that on our arrival on a very hot Saturday afternoon there were no sunbeds available by the pool so Sarah found a couple of old ones gave them a wash and told us we could have our very own beds, which we kept on our patio for the duration, although there were beds by the pool available everyday we were there after that. I would highly recommend Sid Valley as there is masses of out door space for our 14 year old to play Tennis or just run around outside our cottage and also the very quiet location for us just to chill out in the sun, it is also very centrally located for beaches and towns. Also I must add that the resident dog ( Benson) is
beautiful and had many great evenings playing ball with him if we had room in the car we were going to bring him home with us! Thanks Sarah and Steve we hope to be back soon!

Just returned from a long weekend break at the Sid Valley Hotel and we had the best weekend break ever. Rooms are amazing, food fabulous, hospitality second to none nothing was too much trouble and best of all dogs were welcome. The location is stunning close to beaches and picturesque villages with its own pool and tennis courts. We were a group of nine and as we had two small dogs with us we opted for the cottage as it was easier to let dogs out early mornings. Our friends were all in the actual hotel and every room was delightful. The owners Steve and Sarah and their sons made the stay extra special with their warmth and attention to detail with all the little finishing touches. Wonderful stay in stunning surroundings not cheap but well worth every penny we will definitely return again soon. Keep the secret as if word gets out we might not be able book so easily.

the rooms are nice and particulary the barhrooms have great showers, the room we had also had a lovelly balcony with great views allowing for a comfortable place to drink your tea or a glass of wine !!!..steve the owner was very proactive when he knew we were returning guests and stocked up on our favourite chardonnay ...and popped open a bottle of champers to welcome us..which he did not charge us for !!!..if you want peace and tranquility ..this is the place to stay ..

We stayed 3 nights in The Stables which is a great self catering little cottage within this great hotel. Steven & Sarah made us very welcome and were great hosts, the food was excellent. I am partially disabled & have trouble walking and I found everything was suitable for me, they even put a shower stool in there for me! Fantastic, I would definitely recommend this hotel. Ignore the rating for fitness centre below as I did this by accident and can't take it off TripAdvisor!

Room Tip: They all looked good!

My mum and her partner have been visiting Sid Valley Hotel for ages however this was only my second stay. I had the same room with the jacuzzi bath in the en suite as I had before which is wonderful, and as the sun was shining we were able to enjoy some very generously proportioned G&T's on the balcony. The hotel is immaculately clean and there are flowers everywhere. We were made to feel very welcome and are already planing the next visit where we are going to stay in one of the self catered cottages. I can't recommend Sid Valley highly enough!

PS the lovely little cinema in Sidmouth is well worth a visit of an evening, retro in just the right way

Sid Valley Country Hotel is hidden away in a peaceful valley but close to the Devon coast.. A lovely family run hotel , where you feel welcome and comfortable. Our room was huge with a large balcony overlooking fabulous views of the valley. After just one night we felt rested and relaxed. I can honestly say that this was one of the most comfortable hotels I have stayed in.

Restful quiet country hotel off the beaten track in the Sid Valley.
Excellent rooms beautifully fitted and generous size. Ours had a magnificent view down the valley.
Owners very friendly and go out of their way to make you welcome. Unfortunately whilst there our host was recovering from an op so we were unable to have an evening meal ( He is also the Chef and if breakfast is a guide a good one too!) This did not stop him from being around and helpful and trust back to full fitness soon.
Well worth a stop over. Good size pool for the keen.
Nearby Sidbury has a magnificent church which should be visited. We Missed the guided tour as only Thursday at 3:00pm. Don't miss the Donkey Sanctuary they need visitors.

Room Tip: Above the dining room and enjoy the' large ' balcony. We did!
