For a two night family gathering this was ideal. The rooms were comfortable with recently refurbished bathrooms. The children all enjoyed the pool. Breakfast was as good as you will get anywhere with a huge choice of menu, we had no room for lunch on both days. Although we did not have seaviews from the bedrooms it could be seen...

This was a first time visit with my elderly mother and brother. We stayed 3 nights on a dinner, bed and breakfast rate, which was a good decision as the food, both breakfast and dinner, and service in the restaurant were excellent. The hotel was very homely and quiet, a short walk to the very uncommercialised and unspoilt town centre...

Thank you very much for making a review, we are pleased you found us peacefully situated and that you enjoyed the meals, and mentioning what you like about Sidmouth, always gives first time visitors a good insight. I note you recommend sea views, but we really only have the 1 room that looks down towards the esplanade, Room Kent. We...

We have stayed here many times and always receive the warmest of welcomes. An interesting historical building of considerable charm and with a comfortable 'family' feel. Every time one visits further improvements have been made and this time it was stylish new bathrooms. Pleasant well prepared food with proper table service - including breakfast which is a delight.

Thank you for taking the time to make a review. I am very sorry that you found the breakfast disappointing. Of course there is no excuse for running out of sausages a main stay of the great English breakfast; however we do get our ordering wrong occasionally, and it is fresh. The mushrooms certainly are not tin, and we do...

We spent 4 nights at this hotel with a group of friends from a local bridge club. The hotel is old, slightly labyrinthine and very comfortable. Our room was a good size, the bed was large (two singles pushed together). En suite was a bit tired but is due for refurbishment. The food was absolutely excellent, with classic English full...

Thank you for making a review. We are pleased that overall it was mainly positives, but realise this is not good enough and therefore always a positive to have constructive feedback. We work hard on creating a natural, hospitable welcome, but sometimes no matter, an individual is painfully shy or another is over taken by nerves when checking in or...
