Once you have arrived and parked you can forget the car if only staying for a few days. The shops and restaurants are within very short distances. The staff all seem to have an unforced charm, kindness and courtesy which is, alas, becoming rarer. The food, both in quality and presentation, is higher than I woul have expected in what...

Great little inn in a perfect position on the esplanade in Sidmouth. Attractive property. Some parking spaces beside the accommodation. First come, first serve. We had been upgraded to a large room with an excellent bathroom with views of the sea. Very comfortable beds and an efficient shower. The staff were all helpful and welcoming. Dan, the manager was especially...

Firstly, I do not write many reviews and tend to do so only for experiences that are an exception in a positive or negative sense. We needed somewhere to eat on our first night in Sidmouth and noticed Dukes while walking through the town. Having checked out the reviews we called and booked for the evening and are are really...

I got to the hotel at 11.00 pm it was easy to find, I'd emailed ahead to say I'd be late. When I got there I was greeted with a very welcome pint and shown to my room. It had a fabulous sea view and was incredibly comfortable. Breakfast was superb, I highly recommend Dukes if you are staying in...

We cannot recommend the Dukes Hotel enough. Lovely sea view room, recently refurbished & spotlessly clean. Two armchairs to enjoy the view, unlike most hotel rooms, with just one. Thoughtful touch of providing an umbrella & a cotton shopping bag to use if needed was nice to see. The breakfasts are plentiful & delicious, a lot of choices & you...

Visited Dukes and ate in the restaurant, lively pub & fairly busy restaurant. Seated quickly by a friendly member of staff. We ordered fish & chips, probably the nicest I have had for many years, lovely fresh fish & crispy beer batter & amazing chips. Came with a very tasty home made tartar sauce, so good we asked for a...

A traditional Bar/Restaurant with rooms, many with a sea view. However, the rooms are not large and the toilet/shower room can best be described as compact! The staff are exceptional. All were affable and helpful. They enhanced our stay. Helen is outstanding, she is a credit to the business. We stayed for one night, Valentines, so we dined from the...

We popped into Dukes for lunch on a day visit to sidmouth. Me, hubby and two little ones. It was very cold out so it was nice that the restaurant was very warm. Plenty of space to bring the double buggy up to our table. Staff were friendly and helpful. Kids got crayons and paper and a high chair was...

Dukes is right on the front at Sidmouth, with exterior and interior seating, as well as rooms. The staff are all bright, cheerful and know their jobs, nothing is too much trouble. The same goes for the kitchen, the food will not disappoint, so pop in and give it a try o look online at their website.
