So glad we found this place. Marc and Jan are fabulous hosts. Room was spotlessly clean, with plenty of tea/coffee supplied and en-suite good size too. Breakfast was delicious, a good selection of cereals etc with a even better selection of cooked breakfast items. Just a five minute walk into the lovely town with plenty of good cafes and places...

Very friendly welcome, spotlessly clean room with very fresh linen and towels. Marc and Jan are lovely people and couldn't do enough to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Excellent breakfast and very good choice. Five minute stroll into town, on the level. Excellent meals at Dukes in town. Will definitely be back.

The hotel manager and his wife were very friendly and open to us and gave a lots of nice hints for our stay in Sidmouth and its surroundings. We felt very comfortable here and even extended our stay. Our double room was pretty nice and quiet. Breakfast with various possible choices was very tasty. Absolutely recommendable!

Room was clean and fresh. Quiet location. Friendly welcome from the couple who run the place. Lovely breakfast in the morning. All you would want from a seaside B&B. Reasonable cost. Off-road parking. Also somewhere to stow your cycles if required. Nice en-suite. I experienced nothing to detract from this review in any way. I only stayed the one night.

We had a brilliant stay at Canterbury House. Marc and Jan were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The room we stayed in was very comfortable with everything you needed. The breakfast was scrummy especially the fruit compote. Canterbury House has a very friendly feel and we will be going back. Kate and Trevor Russell Kent
