If you prefer a view of the sea then you may wish to stay at the Marlborough Hotel. This stands on The Esplanade, close to the main shopping centre and with magnificent views of the sea and cliffs. Open all year round you can be sure of a warm welcome at any time.
Then there’s the Royal Glen where Queen Victoria stayed when she was a very small child. Her father, Edward Duke of Kent died in Sidmouth giving the townspeople plenty to do when they had to buy mourning clothes and watch his coffin leave.
If you prefer a smaller establishment then why not try a guesthouse?
If you prefer to be in the country a little more then the Deer Park Country House Hotel at Buckerell will suit you better. There’s a magnificent view across the River Otter, one of the prettiest rivers in Devon.
Alternatively for a higher vantage point try Combe House at Gittisham, peace and tranquillity combined with high-class cuisine.
If you're looking for something a little cheaper then try a guesthouse
On the coast again down at Exmouth you can stay at the Devoncourt Hotel in Douglas Avenue. Here you can enjoy a view of the sea from the seclusion of a subtropical garden. It’s a short stroll to the promenade and close to the town centre too.
For a city experience then visit Exeter where there is a wider choice of hotels. For a convenient city centre location try the Thistle in Queen Street. The staff are really friendly and the hotel has recently been refurbished.
If you prefer a more modern hotel then you should consider the Southgate Hotel next to the city walls. It’s got free parking for guests, a big bonus in Exeter, Roman cities were not built with car parking facilities in the city plan! It’s close to the heart of Exeter, so you can walk to the Cathedral, the museums and the shops in just a few minutes.
If you need a budget hotel then consider the Travelodge and use the nearby Park & Ride to get into the city centre. Buses run every 10 minutes right through the day.
