“A lovely haven of peace”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

Four friends on a trip to see a fifth, we stayed at Sundene House and were really impressed by the friendly reception and comfortable accommodation. Harry and Louise were perfect hosts and their breakfasts were delicious. The rooms were so spacious, and having a sunny guest lounge to relax in was an unexpected delight. If I come to Northam again I will definitely try to book in here, and would recommend it to anyone.

Just returned from a long weekend house hunting. Staying at Sundene made a very stressful experience so much easier. Not only were Harry & Louise the perfect hosts with a warm and friendly welcome, they also imparted local knowledge which was a great help.
Knowing you could come back to a sitting room, with fridge, tea and biscuits was like coming home. A very comfortable bed rounded off a perfect stay. And thats without mentioning a fine breakfast.

I got the impression that Harry and Louise had put a lot of thought and care in to setting up their guest house. The extras, such as toiletries, magazines, a fridge with fresh milk etc., made us feel at home. The downstairs suite of rooms (one with a very comfortable double bed and the other with a pretty single bed) was ideal for my daughter and I. Excellent breakfast. We would definitely stay again.

Made to feel so welcome - room was spotless and extremely we'll equipped. Nothing was to much trouble for the couple who run this very friendly establishment. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is visiting the area.

This was a perfect B&B just outside Bideford (car essential) where we were visiting relatives. Wonderfully warm in winter and we were lucky enough to have the guest lounge to ourselves. Modern and prettily decorated rooms - the ground floor is actually 2 separate rooms, making it perfect my my elderly mother and myself. Easy, off street parking too. Hosts were as per other reviews and breakfast great. Lots of extras like a small fridge (complimentary beers), hairdryer, magazines etc. Highly recommended.

Sundene is a most comfortable B&B - the host has thought of everything! Seperate bathroom and lounge area where a microwave, fridge, kettle, complimentary coffee, tea, beer, biscuits - it just goes on and on what has been supplied for your every need!
The breakfast was excellent English and we were offered a lift to the Lundy Island Ferry in Bideford. When we arrived back, Harry, our B&B host, offered to come and collect us if we just rang him on arrival. Very unexpected but appreciated service! Can't praise this place enough!

We stayed for two nights in this lovely Bed and Breakfast in Northam. We were made to feel very much at home by Louise and Harry. The room was first rate with a comfortable bed and the extra bonus being the lounge area attached. The breakfasts were excellent; be it full English or the smoked haddock. You will find all you need in toiletries, drinks, ironing facilities and TV. We were attending a wedding close by and Harry kindly took us in his car to save us getting a taxi - going the extra mile!
If you are looking for a place to stay near Bideford or Westward Ho, get yourself to Sundene House you will not be disappointed. Thank you both from Alyson and Roger.
