“Another fantastic stay”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Have stayed several times at The Woodlands and would like to say,after my most recent visit over the Bank Holiday, that the new owners Dan and Megan have made a terrific difference - the hotel is more welcoming, cleaner, brighter than ever before and the new beds are so comfortable! The food is fantastic as always - it was great to see Frank was still in the kitchen! Love coming down and am already looking forward to my next visit.

Really enjoyed my stay, sweet room, everything spotlessly clean. The family/staff could not have been kinder, incredibly friendly and helpful. The whole atmosphere was relaxed and happy. Chip's welcome is worth a visit alone! Thank you so much, I'm looking forward to my next visit.

We absolutely love this hotel! We're just home from our 5th stay at this hotel but this stay was our best ever, thanks to the new owners. What a team! This hotel has improved a hundred times over thanks to Megan and Dan. Lovely new decor, carpets & beds (which are unbelievably comfortable!). Frank's food was amazing as always!
I would recommend this hotel for the great food, excellent comfortable beds making for a top nights sleep, top staff and a fabulous location!

We received a very warm welcome from Megan, Dan and Emily! We were very well looked after and we totally chilled out and really enjoyed our stay. The food was great and everyone really put themselves out to ensure we had a great time. We loved spending time with Megan and Dan and our daughter loves Emily! We are looking forward to staying at the Woodlands again! Thank you Megan, Dan and Emily xxx

My husband and I stayed at the Woodlands hotel during the bank holiday and we were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived by the owners Dan and Megan. Our room was recently refurbished and very spacious and clean. Food was great too. The bar is in a large, bright conservatory, with access to their beautiful garden. We will definitely stay here again when in Sidmouth.

My husband & I have just returned from a wonderful weekend at Woodlands Hotel.
From the moment we arrived Dan & Megan were at the fore front making sure we were ok, providing pots of tea & ensuring we were comfortable.
We had a Superior room which was big, with plenty of seating and a delightful bed, overlooking the garden which is work in progress.
The hotel location is good for getting out & about by foot if you wish & ample parking too which is a plus.
We did a BB&EM - food was a good quality, very hot, well presented and taken in a lovely dining room. The conservatory is a lovely place to chill at any time of the day but lovely too in the evening to take your coffee or have a drink from a very well stocked bar.
Counting the time till we can return again and spend time this lovely family.

Room Tip: We had Room 1 which was on the ground and the doors opened onto the pretty garden
