I have stayed at Canterbury House on three occasions and Marc and Jan are always the same - friendly and helpful with a great sense of humour. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. Each time I've stayed I've been given the same room which is nicely decorated and very clean. The bed is extremely comfortable, the lighting's really good...

We enjoyed an excellent stay-the hosts had a great way of being friendly but not intrusive-the room was clean and comfortable and had everything you could need. The choice at breakfast was lovely and the food well cooked-overall a very nice place run by very nice people.

Lovely bed and breakfast in Sidmouth. King size bed. Beautifully warm room. Spotlessly clean. Large comfortable room with very powerful shower. Very friendly hosts and delicious breakfast. Fabulous. Only 5 minutes walking to the sea or the town centre.

Great quiet location, within easy stroll to main shopping area and sea front. Off- street Parking was a bonus. Beautiful clean room and the softest towels we have ever come across! Great breakfast and great hosts. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
