We visited this hotel for a long weekend. The hotel is situated within easy walking distance of Sidmouth. It has free parking although the car park is small and getting in and out can sometimes be difficult. Although it is classed as a hotel it is more like a large bed and breakfast establishment. Children and pets are welcome although a dog barking in the next room early in the morning was a little unexpected. The welcome and service was very efficient and friendly throughout and obviously many people return here.
The room we had was large, comfortable and the bathroom modern and well equipped. There was no phone in the room and the TV was a little small.
The hotel serves dinner between 7 and 8pm although the menu is very limited with one meat dish, one fish dish and one vegetarian. As this was too early for us we choose to eat out. We eat at the anchor pub and neils fish restaurant (both of which are recommended see reviews). The bar in the hotel is a honesty bar which means basically serve yourself.
Breakfast was well cooked but fairly basic and was served from 8.30 to 9.30. I think this should be extended to 10.00 at the weekend. A good hotel/bed and breakfast at a reasonable price.
