“Excellent venue, flexible management”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

We enjoyed excellent support from Woodlands Hotel during the funeral preparation visit, and funeral social event, following the death of my father. Arrangements and catering were exactly suited to our needs, with much good advice coming from Dan and Megan Cozens. Rooms clean, comfortable, and with many delightful features from interesting history of the building, and its association with Prince Regent. Highly recommended as function venue and as accommodation for a visit to Sidmouth.

Stayed over the Christmas break and loved it. Lovely large hotel with fully equipped rooms catering for a large number of people those few days. Delicious meals and a big conservatory for everyone to get together in the evenings. Also a very short walk to the beach. Looking forward to the next visit.

Megan & Dan thank you for a brilliant stay at the Woodlands hotel for the Christmas break.
The rooms were lovely and the food delicious. Perfect place for a large family get together.
Will definitely be back to visit again soon.

We stayed at the Woodlands Hotel as a large family party just before Christmas. Family members required different requirements (disabled access, children etc) which the Woodlands Hotel completely accommodated with such a happy heart and with such ease. They made us feel so welcome, gave us a wonderful meal and met all our needs. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. It is a family run business which really gives them an extra edge and an understanding of how important family breaks are. If they can please my disabled mother in law and my two year old son in one visit they truly have the thumbs up from me!

Room Tip: There are some rooms that open onto the garden which are worth asking for. I know they are planning...

For our stay at Woodlends hotel , the welcome was warm, the impressive foyer decked perfectly for Christmas with a huge tree. The hotel has a lovely layout and really fabulous rooms (some more fab than others but that is always so). Hosts were eager to please and the large table and spacious conservatory gave us the 'grand' feeling we were after. great location , being only a stone's throw from the sea and the town centre.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the 'grand' rooms with access to the garden ( obviously especially useful if...

We stayed as a big family group. Megan and Dan were the most friendly, welcoming hosts. The rooms have been lovingly refurbished and clean. The conservatory was airy and perfect for our relaxing time. Strongly recommended.

Many thanks to the Woodlands Hotel team. We recently had an 18th birthday party at the Woodlands Hotel and the staff, facilities and food were excellent. We managed to commandeer the bar area and conservatory for a band and disco and found that the staff were more than happy to accommodate our requests. Friendly new owners and a great venue made for a fantastic night.
