The refurbishment of this hotel is very good . The new court yard rooms are luxurious but the hotel is badly let down by parts of its operation specifically breakfast service . Frankly the service of breakfast is awful. On all three mornings we waited up to 20 minutes for drinks and the continental selection was mainly fruit with yogurt...

Have recently enjoyed a lovely stay at the Harbour Hotel in Sidmouth. Despite a number of negative reviews regarding the rooms, my wife and I had a lovely room (room 21). The room had been recently re-furbished and was very comfortable. The only slight negative was that despite having the window fully open we did find the room a little...

We stayed here for one night with a toddler and dog. Booking was confusing as Mr & Mrs Smith allow a one night stay online but when I called the hotel direct to check their dog policy I was told they only take 2 night bookings. After a bit of haggling I was allowed to book for one night over...

We stayed here for two nights, taking my elderly mother for a weekend treat. Several issues added up to make it a disappointing experience overall - it was so hit and miss. The good points - location, standard of decor, helpfulness of receptionists and food quality were spoiled by the bad ones. Firstly, we received a courtesy call three nights...

My niece and I had two cocktails each and thought they were expensive - the bill came to £40! I think you are paying for the location and attractiveness of the hotel. Lovely bar area and excellent service. We were there from approximately 6 to 6.30 pm and a few nibbles or canapés would have been very welcome. We had...

Wow! We stayed for one night with friends as a birthday celebration. On arrival we were blown away the decor of the hotel. Bright,modern and smelt wonderful! We stayed in the courtyard rooms and even though we didn't have a great view the rooms were amazing. Large, clean and the facilities are the best I have ever had in a...

Have recently returned from a three night heritage break. The thing that struck my wife and I was the great service from the man who met the car as we drove in and took cases up to the great restaurant staff. We made full use of the pool and spa with the bathrobes provided in the room. The only faults...

Late booking direct with hotel gave us a great price. We've stayed in several Harbour Hotels and although Sidmouth is not our favourite it's still well worth a visit. Building work was going on during our stay but didnt interfere with our enjoyment. Great bar area, nice view, excellent dinner, tasty breakfast and a quick dip in the pool, sauna...

We stayed for 2 nights (last weekend of February) in one of the newly refurbished courtyard rooms. From the moment we arrived through to our departure the staff were brilliant; professional, friendly & helpful. The room was of a very high standard (one tiny 'miss' - the curtains cover the radiator so roll them up onto the windowsill to allow...
