Great hotel, we had a lovely family room on the 2nd floor which had a large double and 2 single beds in. A small coffee table, 2 tub chairs, tv, a fridge and plates, cutlery and wine glasses. All decorated tastefully with plenty of light from the windows. Free wifi too. A compact bathroom but very clean and plenty of...

I visted recently with my daughter and we have a wonderful visit. Our room had a really amazing view of the stormy sea and the trains, and my 4-year-old loved just looking out of the window. It was a much quieter location than I'd expected. The bed was comfy and the kitchenette was very well stocked. Breakfasts were delicious (my...

My partner and I stayed at The Blenheim for two nights during this month and found it to be a ovely place to stay. The hotel itself is in a great location with great sea views and easy access for public transport links for visiting other nearby towns/cities and you can't beat the breakfast served up in the mornings....absolutely lovely....

Thank you for taking time to review The Blenheim. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and it seems our breakfasts are going down a storm with our guests so that makes me very happy to read this. The en suites do vary but most are on the smaller size, we will be upgrading some of the bathroom suites...

Stayed for one night and couldn't fault the Blenheim. Super friendly welcome, lovely room (totally set up for semi-self catering if you wanted, with fridge, toaster, plates and cutlery), and wonderful breakfast. The choice at breakfast was brilliant - including gluten-free option. Only slight downside was lack of parking, but not a big deal as there's a road with free...

From the warm welcome to the moment of goodbye, these few days away probably qualified as one of the very best short holidays that my wife and I have enjoyed in a very long time. Alison and her staff really do go the extra mile to look after residents. You would be hard-pressed to find a better breakfast in the...

We had a one night stay here over Easter weekend as we were visiting friends in Dawlish who didn't have room for us to stay over. Lovely B & B - comfy bed, great breakfast and really lovely staff. Great value for money. Would definitely recommend to anyone going to Dawlish for a break.

Stayed with 3 friends. Ideal location close to the train station, seafront and Dawlish restaurants. The rooms were wonderfully kept and the hosts were very friendly and made us feel really welcome, it was a lovely family run business. The breakfast included was great and offered a good selection. Would recommend to anyone.

I came across this hotel by chance and would suggest to anyone staying in Dawlish to consider staying here. It is near the station, so not far to carry your cases if you are carless. The room I had was extremely large and was geared up for self-catering. The breakfast was included in the price and it is the first...

All cooked fresh to order and with no oil and fat used in our cooking. Most of our rooms have kitchenettes so our...

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....
