Sidmouth is a resort that doesn't do modern - there are no amusement arcades and a sense of the past pervades - the Victorian promenade is bordered by buildings of character - perfect for those like myself that seek this.
The Royal Glen is the perfect match, a grade 1 listed building full of character and history where courtesy, friendliness and good service are the key. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the rooms are quaint but are comfortable - but don't expect a 42inch LCD television in the bedroom (12 inch portable is more likely).
There is a very good (small) indoor pool which takes a bit of finding.
I will definitely return
