“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

My husband and I have recently returned from a five days stay at this hotel. The food, service and excellent attention to detail was very much appreciated. So much so that I have telephoned the hotel manager to say how pleased we were with everything. This is an older generation hotel but is this such a bad thing when it compensates for such good service. It just goes to show that good old fashioned service is very much alive and kicking and very much appreciated.

Stayed here for 4 nights from September 1st., on a Bed & Breakfast tariff. My (91 yr old) mother and I shared a twin-bedded room (207) with a balcony and wonderful sea views. The room was great and despite hard pillows (should have asked for replacements) very comfortable and well kept. Breakfast was good, fast and pleasant service. We did not eat in the dining room for dinner as we thought it to be over-priced for our needs. A bar/lounge meal on the first evening proved disappointing and mentioned it on checkout, the cost was immediately removed from our bill. Parking was our 'entertainment' when in the room relaxing. We were fortunate to secure a parking spot by the Reception area but watched as many guests or visitors tried to park in what I counted as only a total of 40 spaces (could be wrong)!
Overall an extremely pleasant experience and would certainly stay there again and recommend the hotel to friends if they like the old way of providing service and comfort.

We have used Brend hotels for many years, and decided to try the Belmont for a short break, and were not disappointed.

The room was comfortable, clean and had a balcony with pleasant views over the cricket ground.The restaurant food for both dinner and breakfast was of a high standard, with ample choice and beautifully presented. The waiting staff were top class, carrying out their duties in a really prompt and professional manner. They also, like all the other staff we encountered, were very courteous and friendly with every request met with a positive reponse.
Overall a most pleasant experience, and we would definitely return in the future.

The Belmont Hotel provides the level of service which leaves you totally relaxed and refreshed. Service is prompt and professional amidst well maintained and well furnished accommodation. Parking is ample and convenient with ready help with luggage from the concierge service if required.

The location of the hotel is superb, with excellent sea views across an uncluttered promenade, close to lovely gardens at the quiet end of the town. The town itself is thriving; a rareity for an English sea-side resort. You can even watch the cricket match at the adjoining Sidmouth cricket club grounds from the terrace, helpfully protected from those occasional 6's by a mesh net.

The price for dinner bed and breakfast is what you would expect for the location and level of service. The bar and restaurant service is emaculate with silver service at dinner and an opportunity for the male guest to wear that tie and jacket that you always pack. The menu is elegant and the food is of good quality.

With very pleasant and helpful staff - what else could you ask for - other than good weather, which we had! We will certainly return for another "escape" from the cut and thrust of daily life.

Room Tip: A room at the front of the hotel with a balcony is ideal, which will give you great sea views and th...

We have just returned from a stay at this hotel as a family of four. The location of the hotel is excellent and it was most pleasant on a sunny evening to sit outside and admire the seaview.
The facilities at this hotel are very limited but it does have the option for guests to be able to use the pools at the adjacent Victoria Hotel, where the outside pool was great but the indoor one was in need of an update and the spa / sauna area needs a complete overhaul..afterall it has carpet down which was most unhygienic. And no gym between the two sites either which for the star rating and the price was a bit of a let down if you like to keep in shape.
The room we had at the Belmont had recently been redecorated and was nicely furnished with a good quality bed. More attention could be paid to the cleaning of it though. There is a turn down service which we thought was a nice touch.
We ate at the Belmont hotel and the dining experience was like a cross between the 1970`s and an episode of Downton Abbey. The so called air conditioned restaurant was baking hot and they still insist on the tie and jacket rule. The food was overall pretty good but i was surprised to see the cake trolley - something i last saw in 1981..with various uncovered desserts on...and if you like to make conversation with your friends and family then be prepared for it to be drowned out by the piano player...not out of tune as such but simply loud and unnecessary. The dinner was silver service which i personally found over the top, intrusive and out of date these days.
The staff it is fair to say were all very good , in particular the restaurant staff who all suffered the the stuffy atmosphere valiantly . The only issue being one particular member of staff who came to our room to check the mini bar and felt sufficiently at ease to break wind. Charming.
Overall, we did have a good stay and enjoyed ourselves. Yes, the average age is over 70 but hey, it is Sidmouth afterall , which by the way is a lovely town .

BrendHotels, Area Director at The Belmont Hotel, responded to this review, September 14, 2013
Thank you for your review after your recent stay with us. We are very pleased that you enjoyed the food and location and appreciated the staff at the Belmont. However, we do go out of our way not to be a travel inn type of hotel.

Sidmouth is one of England's finest traditional gems and we have tried to mix offering modern facilities (i.e. modern bathrooms, free Wifi, modern flat screen televisions etc) with traditional service (i.e. concierge on arrival and departure to help with parking and luggage, Silver Service in the Restaurant and turndown in the evenings).

I am sorry that our style of service is not to your taste. We go out of our way to maintain service from the past which is making us quite unique these days, and we experience a high level of customer satisfaction and feel that this is shown by a large number of repeat guests.

We thank you again for your review.
