Just returned from three nights at the Blenheim. The B&B was immaculate inside and my room was clean and comfortable. Ali and her team were extremely friendly and helpful. If you're planning a break in Dawlish then the Blenheim is the place to stay, highly recommended.

We stayed one night in March. What attracted us was the B&B was listed as " Dog Friendly". We phoned up as they have dog friendly rooms and Alison couldn't have been more helpful over the phone. When we arrived they were experiencing problems with the water supply, so the room they had originally allocated us, had no working shower....

We've just returned from a one night weekend stay at the Blenheim and it was wonderful. Friendly staff, large, spacious rooms, right on the seafront so lovely views and in the heart of beautiful Dawlish. We were lucky to get one of the 3 parking spaces available but staff can direct you to places to park if need be. Breakfast...

Thank you so much for taking time to review The Blenheim, we are so happy you enjoyed your stay here. My tiny carpark is very sought after but we wouldn't have the wonderful sea views that we have being so close to the sea if we had a huge car park and as you said I can direct to free...

What a beautiful Hotel!! I totally messed up before we arrived! Big delay and lack of communication to let the very pretty Ali who owns the Hotel know that we would be late! Under the circumstances, she was very accommodating, waiting up for us! The Hotel itself, Huge lovely clean rooms situated perfectly on the Seafront! We had to leave...

Thank you for what can only described as a fabulous review! Our last check in time is 9pm but I understand that guests can arrive after this sometimes so I do try to be as accommodating as possible and we ask guests to keep us updated on their journey. I hope you will be back to sample the delights of...

Stayed for two nights in early April and had the Sea View room overlooking the main road. Don't let that put you off. Super double glazing reduced all the noise but I had the windows open so I could hear the sea bashing against the nearby sand. Lovely way to get to sleep. Room was enormous with double bed, settee,...

My mother and I had booked this room as we wanted to stay in Dawlish for an event that I was working at locally (Hamster Show) and wanted to combine it with a little holiday. Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed by the host who gave us the choice of two rooms that she had available. The room we opted...

Have just returned from a one night stay here with our 2 children. Lucky to get a space in the car ark outside so didn't have to worry about parking at all. Our room was immaculate, plenty of space, biscuits and chocolates with the tea/coffee/hot chocolate. Breakfast was amazing, kids loved the pancakes and I could not fault my breakfast...
