Where to stay between Bournemouth & Plymouth

Can anyone suggest where would be best for a one night stay - we fly into Bournemouth and need to be in Plymouth early evening the following day. We'll be staying in Plymouth that night but where should we stay the first night? Don't know the area at all - worst nightmare would be somewhere full of amusement arcades. Somewhere with costal walks, nice pubs and restaurants and options for wet weather activities (just adults) would be great.

Weymouth is a good option, but I'd recommend Lyme Regis myself;

Sidmouth might be another possibility - a very gracious Victorian resort town which has been spared the worst excesses of 'resort updating'. It has one or two very nice hotels; a good range of places to eat, and the South-West coastal path heads off in both directions at the end of the seafront (it's a good stiff climb though, so be warned!)

Thank you for the suggestions - wish we had longer now - they all sound lovely! Think we might go for Sidmouth just based on it being most central but visit thge others en route.

And going a little further West towards Plymouth, you have also got Exmouth and Exeter. Plenty of hotels to choose from in Exeter and pleasant walks along the quay. Only a couple of decent hotels to choose from in Exmouth, but you have got a two mile seafront to walk along.

Plymouth is just one hours drive from Exeter.
