Another great stay at this lovely hotel. Comfortable and spotlessly clean rooms, very good food and a very warm welcome from the owners, Dan and Megan. A short walk to the sea front and the centre of Sidmouth. Highly recommended, I wouldn't stay anywhere else when in the area.!

Check out note in room folder, but it really means to check out before 10.30am
Hi there are a lot of coastal walks that can be done locally along with walking along the river, where the dogs are free to run. The main beach is off limits for dogs but the far beach beyond Jacobs ladder permits dogs too. on top of that pets are welcome at several of the pubs in town along with Bicton Gardens, The Donkey Sanctuary and Escot House. Please call us to book and we can advise on other locations. Dan

Hi, Yes there are several places all within walking distance. We suggest however that if you are booking that you call us directly as not all of our rooms are dog friendly, and this is not shown on any of the websites. kind regards Dan 01395513120

"Lovely room had our own sitting area which was nice"
"Room size reflected by price - quieter rooms at the rear."
"Be genuinely kind when booking and ask honestly for an ideal room to match your preferences."
