The very unusual frontage of the hotel plus the VACANCIES sign were all we needed to book into this hotel for a two night stay. We were immediately impressed by the very warm welcome we received and the no nonsense mini tour of the rooms to make our choice. The owners are relativey new and seem to have the task of renovation and repair well under way. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was ample and delicious and the bar and lounges impressive. Free parking and Wifi available with the town in easy walking distance. There is also the wonderful 18 hole Sidmouth golf club with spectacular views only a mile up the hill from the hotel, We will definitely return.

Would totally endorse previous reviews - My son, daughter-in-law and myself so enjoyed our stay and the really genuine welcome of Megan and Dan was a treat! -particularly for myself, being in my late 80's and very disabled. I was made to feel comfortable and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were spotless and the food of 4star quality and presentation. The downstairs rooms are very suitable for the disabled - even our dog was made at home.
When all their refurbishments and ideas are in place, this will be an exceptional hotel. We wish Megan and Dan the success they deserve.

We have just returned from the Woodlands Hotel , we found everybody so friendly and the hosts made us feel very welcome. The meals were excellent and our room was lovely and very big with views across the garden. The hotel is currently under restoration but that did not have any effect on our stay.We hope to return again next year.

What a friendly hotel with great new hosts, Dan & Megan in charge.
The hotel is comfortable and relaxing although the owners are implementing refurbishment plans which are smartening public rooms. Seasoned travellers will nevertheless agree that good service and high food quality are imperatives and you will not be disappointed.
Dan & Megan are great company and they really went the extra mile, and more, to welcome my wife and I and my elderly disabled mother. No effort was too great and we were swiftly made to feel welcome, at ease and at home! Other staff were of the same mindset - Leah in particular looked after us in the dining room which is beautifully fashioned and appealingly laid out.
The hotel has much history of interest and is set in delightful gardens. A large bright conservatory offers a comfortable and inviting lounge area and our bedrooms were spacious and well appointed.
Wheelchair friendliness was a bonus and our dog enjoyed the visit too. Shops and seafront within 5 minutes stroll.
Highly recommended and we wish Dan & Megan every success which they surely deserve in their new adventure. We certainly intend to go back!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back have views of the garden. Don't just book bed and breakfast - the dinners off...

Have just returned home having spent a very enjoyable break at the Woodlands Hotel The owners were very welcoming and made you feel like one of the family. The food was of a very high standard and nothing was too much bother. The room was immaculate and offered all the facilities required and although the hotel is currently being refurbished you can see it is going to be of an excellent standard. We wish the owners every success for the future and we cannot wait to make a return visit.

Although on this occasion I did not stay at the hotel, I was a guest at a private function. Currently being restored to its former glory by the charming new owners I was again pleasantly surprised! A warm friendly welcome, within the most beautiful gardens with a brook running through them! The food was really tasty and fresh. I recommend this hotel not only
for a relaxing break but also to just stop by for a light lunch in lovely surroundings! Will definitely be visiting again. Thanks to all at the Woodlands for a great afternoon!
