Sidmouth Harbour Hotel - T
Ranked #8 of 13 Hotels in Sidmouth
Reviewed May 30, 2014

My husband and I stayed one night at this hotel on a dinner, bed and breakfast arrangement over the May bank holiday weekend. Our room was in the original part of the hotel; a lovely massive room with a (sideways) view of the sea, across the gardens. It was lovely to have a room of these proportions, high ceilings, lots of room to spread yourselves out - rather than the typical hotel room which doesn't have room to swing a cat in. The double bed was enormous - 6ft wide - and extremely comfortable. There were two chairs and a small table by the big window, and a small sofa on the other side of the room. The built in wardrobe was bigger than the one we have at home. Of particular note was the bathroom - very modern and clean. It comprised a walk-through room with a large vanity basin (lots of surface space for toiletries and good lighting) leading into the bathroom proper which had a toilet, bath (with shower above) and then a very large separate shower cubicle. Very efficient and plenty of hot water.
The public rooms in the hotel were quite open plan, so felt spacious, all very tastefully decorated in creams and blues. Lots of full size windows onto the garden with views of the sea beyond. The stairs up to the bedrooms were equally well decorated but then it got a bit tatty as you went around the corridors to the bedrooms. We had to pass through an area which looked more like a staff corridor.
All the staff were helpful, but had a habit of disappearing when you wanted them - the reception wasn't continuously manned - but when the girl arrived she was extremely helpful and welcoming. Same for the bar. Throughout the evening we watched various guests stand around at the bar waiting for staff and then give up and go away. Bit of a shame.
The dining room is pretty formal, and the service was excellent. The food was reasonable but not exceptional and had it not been included in our rate, we would probably have chosen to eat elsewhere as the prices on the menu were a bit steep. The cooked breakfast, however, was extremely good and not a drop of grease on the plate!
We got the feeling that this is a place frequented by mature people, same for Sidmouth in general. However, for a short stay it is absolutely delightful and we would happily return.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 9 as described in detail above. Facing east so lovely morning sun and great views...

I have stayed at the West cliff for four years now with my parents. We stay for a week each year and have always had a very good experience. The views, rooms, breakfast and dinner could not be better. All the staff are extremely helpful and go out of their way the ensure that your stay is enjoyable. We always book the sea view rooms which I believe have been upgraded and waking up with the beautiful view is worth the extra. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms with sea view.

We had Sunday lunch here. Drinks in the lounge first, then into the restaurant for lunch with a view over the bay to the cliffs. The three course meal was excellent and included coffee in the lounge afterwards. The was a great choice of starters, main course and desserts.
The staff were friendly and courteous. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. We will definitely go again.

This hotel was just a few minutes walk uphill out from the front. The views from the hotel were great. There was plenty of parking! The common areas were lovely but our room was at the back overlooking building work that was going on. The shower was a drizzle, not good at all. Quite old fashoined but very comfortable. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice.

Room Tip: Ask if you could have a room that does NOT overlook the building work going on!

Visited the Sidmouth Harbour Hotel for Sunday Lunch. The meal was 3 course with coffee for £19.50p. This is exceptionally good value as the food was 1st class and the service excellent. The surroundings are also special with views from the restaurant and lounge out over the sea. If you want a special place to go for lunch or dinner this is the place to go. Make sure you book as it can be busy at times and you don't wanted to be disappointed!. We cant wait to go there again.

We booked a double/twin room. We did not asked when room was last refurbished, a major mistake!! The room was old, scruffy, smelly, small and much too warm and the tv is the size of a postcard. The remote is almost as big as the tv itself. Window could only be opened a few inches. Bathroom was terrible old with carpet on the floor, HOW UNHYGIENIC, especially in a hotel frequented mainly by old people. Not able to change rooms because of occupancy (or at least that was the excuse). No internet or wifi in the room. It is unbelievable that the hotel is still renting out these type of rooms while advertising with refurbished rooms on the internet, It is a total rip off. Stay away from this establishment.Rooms in Premier Inn are better value.
Only positive point : all the foreign staff very friendly.

Room Tip: Avoid all non refurbished rooms
