Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights b/b. Used the restaurant twice for evening meal. Found the menu and quality of the food to be average,hence the 4 star rating. Even though the hotel was busy the staff were excellent and very helpful. The room was well above average for the price. The big drawback with Sidmouth in general is...

Wonderful inn with rooms. Fabulous, newly refurbished lovely rooms. Friendly staff who have obviously been trained to find quick solutions to all problems or requests their guests may have. Great manager for whom nothing is too much trouble. Loved it - and will be back I hope!

We stayed for one night mid week. Our room was upgraded for free when we arrived. We were showed to our room and given helpful information about the local area. Couldn't fault the cleanliness of the room it was perfect. We booked in for the steak and wine night and the food was incredible. Every team member was smiling and...

We booked a table at 'Dukes' for an evening meal after having a few drinks in their outside area earlier on in the day. The pub/restaurant has a lovely location, slightly set back from the seafront and an ideal place to have a couple of drinks people watching in the sun. Inside there is a separate dining area aswell as...

We stayed for just one night but wished we had stayed longer. Great location and helpful staff. Nice view from our nicely appointed room. A lovely little town with bags of character and friendly locals. As the weather was good we decided to have fish and chips and a bottle of bubbly on the beach instead of eating in a...

On a windy wet Bank Holiday Sunday we were pleased to find refuge in this friendly inn on the sea front. We had booked a table because we wanted a decent Sunday Roast and had been encouraged by the previous reviews. The meal did not disappoint! We both had the Lamb which came with excellent roast potatoes and two dishes...

Went here with my husband for a meal while staying in Sidmouth. They described themselves as the best hotel in Sidmouth - shame they don't live up to their own opinion. Service was poor and it was almost as if it was inconvenient to the staff for us to be there and interrupting their conversations with their friends. Food was...

Little confused about your post as we are not a hotel, we have never described or market ourselves as a hotel and we certainly have never used the phrase the 'best hotel in Sidmouth'. We are a relaxed informal Inn offering B&B accommodation. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your meal with us, if the vegetables or meat were not too...

Delicious Sunday roast in a lovely setting. Despite being very busy as it was Easter, we weren’t rushed at all and the service was attentive with friendly staff, lovely tableware and good portions. Very impressed.

Had a great 2 night stay here. We were kindly upgraded to a lovely sea facing room. The pub is ideally located in town, close to shops and the seafront. Parking at the side is a bonus, too. Staff were really friendly. The breakfasts were delicious and freshly cooked to order.
