(The guesthouse is now up for sale and the owner is concentrating on her food business in Sidmouth. This unfortunately shows-up in places...). OK, the negatives first - dust, cobwebs and worn-out chairs are the order of the day in the room and the shower room needs a darned good clean. The shrivelled old fruit in the breakfast room should...

Great place and I'll miss this place if the owner sell it...we always stay here when we're down here in Sidmouth to visit Donkey's Sanctuary which is less than ten minutes drive...I can't ask for more xxx

I stayed in Rose Cottage for two nights while attending the annual Grizzly 20 mile run in Seaton (awesome event by the way). It was clean, the breakfast was fantastic and the lady who runs it is wonderfully helpful. I have paid more than twice the price to stay in chain hotels that are half as nice. I paid £40...

We had room 6, king size bed. The bed was full of hollows and ridges, so uncomfortable my partner spent the night on the floor. One pillow was full of tennis-ball sized lumps too. The guest entrance from the car park was adorned with piles of cardboard, and a barking dog. There was a note on the door to ring...

Bad experience in a nice place. Firstly, Sidbury is a small Devon village, very pretty but not much going on. Place was comfortable enough, ample parking, nice beds, clean and functional. But as a business traveller, left a lot to be desired. No desk in the room, and if you're going to advertise wifi, be honest and say how good...

I'm a bit surprised by other people's high ratings on this Guest House as I only found it to be 'average'. The views of the thatched roof village from the room was lovely but the room itself (single room) reminded me of my student rented room! It was small, had tired carpet and woodchipped wallpaper, with a large section of...

I stayed here with my husband for just one night. We enjoyed our stay - the cottage is very quaint and all the facilities lovely. The owner is very pleasant and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for her. The bedroom was clean as was the bathroom. Sidbury is an historic Saxon village in the Sid valley, up from Sidmouth....
