We chose the Blenheim for a weekend stay in Dawlish to get away before the Xmas rush. I took my wife and daughter (12) and we all had a great time. The room was recently updated to a very high standard with a modern look, which was very nice. My daughter was amazed by the views out to see and...

Only stayed for 2 nights as I was passing through but will definitely be back for a longer stay. Ideal location for the seafront, shops and railway station. The self catering/B&B is a little unusual but works well and maybe other places should consider this. Breakfast in the room is a good idea and what could be better than having...

We chose this place as it was dog friendly. The welcome was warming and the accomodation orovided for the night did not let us down. The only downside of the stay was that the lighting circuit in our room tripped and because ther has been a change of management they were unable to rectify the situation. However a table lamp...

Bed and Breakfast and Self catering all in one room. Although the rooms are in need of refurbishment they are very clean and the owners are lovely. All the rooms are being updated and refurbished at the moment. The breakfast is one of the best I have ever eaten.
