Lovely room which was clean and well attended.Bottled water provided daily as well as coffee tea and biscuits in the room The shower was a little on the low pressure side but was adequate enough. Breakfast was great with a good choice...

Thank you for your comments. We try hard to provide all facilities and are looking at the shower during our redecoration of the room in the winter. We are always pleased to store motorbikes and pushbikes under cover and hopefully in a reasonably secure area. We are on the outskirts of town but for many of our guest the gorgeous...

Sidmouth is a really nice little town on the coast in East Devon, with several lovely villages nearby. We booked late and were lucky to get a room at Coombe Bank. Harry is extremely friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and had everything we needed. We both really enjoyed the breakfast (especially eggybread!). We will definitely revisit this guest...

We got off to a bad start when we stayed here for 2 nights in July 2013. I had booked the ground floor room because it had a bath and space for a large travel cot for our 2-year-old. The owners had also offered to let us sit in the room across the hall in the evenings, from where we...

Thanks - another full house. We are pleased you had a great weeks holiday and hope you will return.

Reviewed 3 June 2013

I completely agree with the last post. The owners try very hard to make the guests feel at home and it works. The beds are very comfortable and the room was light and airy. The breakfast was excellent with a wide choice, served by Harry the cheery owner. On our next visit to the area, we will definitely be back.

This guest house provides good value for money. The room was very comfortable with luxurious touches, such as the scented tissues in the bedroom and the selected toiletries in the bathroom. Harry, the host, was helpful with information regarding places to dine and local attractions etc. and he made a point of making guests feel welcome throughout their stay.
