A lovely B&B.
Very comfortable bed, huge selection of pillows. Lovely room.
Breakfast was lovely. The owners very accomodating and friendly.
Plenty of parking. 10mins walk into the town centre - a very clean and tranquil town.
Would highly recommend this lovely place.
We were in Sidmouth for a wedding and we paid half the price that some of our friends payed to stay in one of the large hotels on the cliffs and our room was far nicer. (I went up to theirs to help the bridesmaid!).
I will not stay in a corporate hotel again, I will always check out B & Bs first as I think that the owners care more about the service that they provide and the stay that their guests have. Thank the TV programme '3in a bed' for highlighting B & Bs!

We have just returned from a four day stay at the Groveside the welcome we received on our arrival was exceptional you would think that we where regulars they could not do enough for us from the time we entered there home till the time we left.

They showed us to our room which was number four the decor and furnishings where excellent plenty of room to walk around there was seating in the window where you could sit and have a cup of tea watching the world go by the ensuite shower room was excellent with clean towels changed regularly and a flat screen television to watch when laying on the comfortable bed.

You have to have the breakfast exceptional cearel, fresh fruit, full english, toast, tea & coffee plenty of to set you up for the day.

We will definitaly be back I would recommend if you would like a couple of days away the Groveside at Sidmouth is the place to stay.

All 6 of our woman's hiking group wholeheartedly recommend this B&B. Highlights were the warm welcome from Alan, the clean rooms, fresh linens and great breakfast that fortified us for out long day of hiking the shoreline. The town of Sidmouth was a charming surprise with its wonderful shops on cobblestone streets leading down to the sea. On another trip we would stay longer at THE GROVESIDE and explore more of this charming village.

We chose the Groveside for an overnight stay recently when visiting Sidmouth for a birthday and wedding anniversary celebration. Our decision was based on website information - www.thegroveside.co.uk - and the friendly and timely responses to my email communications. What a refreshing change that nothing seemed to be too much trouble. On arrival, we were warmly welcomed and shown to our room; even our bags were carried for us. The guest house is beautifully clean and the comfort of guests has been carefully considered with a hospitality tray in the rooms, even a fridge in the hall area so that additional fresh milk is available to guests at all times.

A locally sourced, mainly organic, freshly prepared cooked breakfast is offered to all guests in addition to cereals and fruit juices. The breakfast is lovingly prepared and well presented and absolutely delicious accompanied by fresh tea or coffee.

As well as onsite parking, the Groveside thoughtfully offers guests use of a small secluded garden and is situated just a 5-10 minute walk from town and the beach. Although on this occasion, I didn't need to take my laptop, I seem to remember that the Groveside also offers a WiFi service. We wouldn't hesitate to visit again. Thanks to our hosts Lin, Alan and William.

By way of a PS, approx 10 minutes away is the wonderful Donkey Sanctuary, well worth a visit on a dry weather day in recognition of the wonderful work done at the sanctuary.

We were back at The Groveside for the 4th year - how does one improve on perfection?The food is superb - all locally sourced, and the vegetarian menus arewonderful. There is nothing too much trouble for our hosts and we have already booked again for next year. Some people go the extra mile but Lin and Alan do a Marathon to ensure everyone is happy and comfortable. We are several pounds heavier due to the delicious meals served.

A welcome with tea and biscuits, wow!!
Knowledge and local info was brilliant for us.
Fresh milk 24/7 means a proper cuppa can be made anytime.
Our room was really top class.
We know where to stay every time we visit Sidmouth now.
We have stayed in hundreds of hotels, B&B, and Guest Houses and this is in top 5%.
