Me & a friend stayed here on a coach trip ,the hotel was very very clean the food was excellent, my friend is celiac and they sorted her food out straight away.We had a few nights in the bar and the staff there were very polite.We were made very wellcome by the owner's & locals,we will definitely be going back again. It is on the sea front and not far from the shops. Excellent all round!!!

As the song says - but on this particular visit sunshine wasn't included! However, the Bedford Hotel provided warmth, comfort, good food and pleasant staff. A room with a balcony here is a must and the restaurant (Pyne's) is definitely worth a visit. We enjoyed delicious whole lemon sole (beautifully presented) followed by delightful desserts and on Wednesdays they have a special curry night which is excellent. Sidmouth is still old fashioned and a great pleasure to visit - it can be enjoyed by all age groups. Try it, and the Bedford, neither will disappoint.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

Our first impressions were good, Friendly staff and our bags were carried up to the room,nice. The room itself was a bit tired although immaculately clean and very comfy with a lovely big bath for that Sunday morning wallow! All the public ares were spotless and looked well presented. We ate at Pynes so can't comment on dinner but the cooked breakfast was one of the best I've had and again service in the breakfast room was brisk yet friendly. Overall a good package and we would definitely book again. Be warned about the lack of parking though, we were lucky but space is limited so be prepared, happy to recommend it to my friends.

Just returned from a short coach holiday at the Bedford Hotel, Sidmouth. Very pleased with the attention paid by owner and staff, we had one small problem in the room on the first night and Mr Pyne resolved it with speed and courtesy.
Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Food, for a tour party was very good and plentiful. Absolutely no complaints, couldn't understand any of the previous winges.

Stayed here 23 to 28th September 2012. The Hotel was comfortable and the staff were helpful and pleasant but the food was ruined by, I hate to call him a Chef, One of the nights the meal came out and was only lukewarm and several of our party said afterwards we should have sent it back but foolishly we did not. On Thursday evening a few of us had fis and when it came out the fish was cold, not even warm and was raw in places. Seven of us sent the meal back and it was returned to us having been warmed up. The vegetable had been left on the table during the warming of our meal and we had to ask for fresh warm vegetables> I would not visit this Hotel again.
