Coombe Bank Guest House
Ranked #19 of 33 Sidmouth B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 1, 2013

This guest house provides good value for money. The room was very comfortable with luxurious touches, such as the scented tissues in the bedroom and the selected toiletries in the bathroom. Harry, the host, was helpful with information regarding places to dine and local attractions etc. and he made a point of making guests feel welcome throughout their stay.

Room Tip: Room 2 was very comfortable

We were attending a wedding in Sidmouth in early January and finding a place to stay was not easy,but how lucky we were when we found Coombe Bank.The hosts did every thing to help us,they provided an evening meal as we were arriving late by train,then the next day they took us to the wedding venue, and when my son couldnt make the wedding due to illness they gave us a lift to Honiton railway station the next day.We had the Garden room a large twin that was spotless and very quiet.The breakfast was top draw with a big selection of yoghourt fruit and numerous cooked options.This establishment has a silver award and deserves it. You will not go wrong if you stay here.

Visited recently for 4 nights, to visit family. The rooms are en-suite and are a reasonable size. There was a wardrobe, and chest of drawers, and tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The bed was comfy but a little small if you're used to a kingsize :+)

The shower room was a good size with a powerful shower and toiletries included in the room however we didn't use these as we had our own.

The best thing about Coombe Bank is the breakfast, each morning we started with a small fruit bowl, then a full English made with local produce,and finished off with toast but if thats not your bag then there are plenty of other options. Harry and Liz are the perfect hosts and are really friendly, on the morning it was raining (hard) they even leant us an umbrella.

A top place to stay that i will stay at again!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 2 which is dual aspect and with the shower room door left open you can get a nice...

We are pleased that yiou enjoyed your stay when attending a family event. We do try to ensure our guests are well fed before their day of wandering around East Devon. We note your comment about the standard doublle beds and would love to increase the bed size to king but in a 1920s house the rooms are not as large aas they were as they had to accomodate the en-suites which were added some 15 years ago. We look forward to seeing you agan when you visit your relatives in Sidmouth.

This small hotel is situated 20 min from the beach in Sidmouth. It's a small traditional English hotel with five or six rooms. They are very friendly and helpful. When we arrived to Sidmouth late in the evening they drove us to a nice restaurant. We also got a lift with them to Exeter one day. The breakfast is fantastic. When we went home to Sweden early in the morning sent the hotel manager with us sandwiches when we did not have time to eat breakfast.
We highly recommend this small hotel!
