We have a beach hut in Walton so we have stayed nearby a lot. The Chudleigh is by far the best, we can’t always get in as it’s always booked. It’s quite old fashioned, well, more quaint but I defy you to find any dirt anywhere. It’s spotless. How do the keep their bathrooms so shiny? I have stayed in every room at some point and they are all en-suite, roomy and comfortable. Carol and Peter are a lovely couple that are very pleased to help with any of your needs. I took my whole family there last week and they all agreed it was lovely. Breakfast is so good, best I tasted. I would highly recommend only if too many people go there it will be harder for me to get in!

Hotel's Favourite
this has never happened before where we've stayed somewhere where everything was great , people who ran it and the staff were very friendly and helpful , the room was big ,warm , peaceful , large and luxurious en suite , massive comfortable bed , spotlessly clean but not bland and clinical , the hotel had loads of charming original features and the breakfast was huge and tasty , our dog bingo had great fun playing with the owners lab and spaniel , parking no problem right at the front door and the chudleigh is a stones throw from the sea next to the pier. price very reasonable at 70 quid all in . 10 out of 10 ;

We stayed at the Chudleigh for 2 nights, our room was immaculate and decor lovely. There wasn't anything that hadn't been thought of. Our hosts were so welcoming and all of the staff really lovely and attentive, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was fantastic and again we were constantly asked if we had all we needed or if we wanted more of anything. Couldn't fault anything at all. We would definitely recommend here and will definitely be returning ourselves. Thank you all very much from Pat and Sam in Milton Keynes.
