Certificate of Excellence
Swallows Eaves Hotel is a small, privately owned, boutique style hotel, located in private grounds. We are in the heart of the pretty village of Colyford, near the Devon/Dorset border. Elegant and stylish with contemporary touches, yet welcoming with the feel of a home away from home, we offer guests an idyllic place to relax and get away from the stresses of day to day life. Explore the Jurassic Coast; take a stroll along The Cobb in Lyme Regis or dip into the historical heart of our regional capital Exeter for shopping, theatre and entertainment.Following a major refurbishment at the start of 2012, the hotel has 7 attractive guest bedrooms, each beautifully decorated offering a high standard of hotel accommodation. Every guestroom has a digital TV, radio alarm, hairdryer, toiletries and beverage tray (which includes complimentary Devonshire mineral water). Several guestrooms have glorious views across the Axe Valley's wooded hills, while others look out into the hotel gardens & grounds. All guest bedrooms are en suite (our Classic rated rooms have a shower, whilst our Deluxe and Master rated rooms contain both bath and shower), complete with our wonderfully thick bath sheets and hand towels to pamper yourself. Every bed is made up with luxurious sheets of soft cotton for the ultimate sleeping experience. Plus books, magazines and free-to-access Wi-Fi all add those welcoming extras that make you feel at home.

My sister and I had a memorably wonderful experience here, with a beautiful twin room, lovely breakfast, and most of all, extremely kind and helpful people. We were walking the southwest coastal path and got stuck in Branscombe after a long day in bad weather, with no taxis

We had a lovely stay at this hotel. The room was comfortable and clean and the breakfast tasty and freshly cooked to order. What makes the stay more special is the staff, everyone was welcoming, friendly and helpful.

We had a very comfortable stay at Swallows Eaves and hope to return soon. Our room had everything we needed and a brilliant large bathroom. Dorothy and her helpers work extremely hard to keep everything sparkling - such a delight to stay somewhere so clean and up together.

Room was clean.There was everything you need.only problem was the bed was not firm enough,I did request a firm mattress but they are all the same and to be fair Dorothy brought in a board but it wasn't much help so we ended up having a restful night. Breakfast was adequate
