The inn was very comfortable with some nice added touches, the staff couldn't do enough for us, the food was excellent, and the location was fab. What more could you ask for. We will definitely go back.

Lunch with friends at Dukes. A pleasant dining area with good service from the staff. For our main course three of us had the battered fish ( haddock) and chips with peas. A tasty piece of fish, not swamped with batter, and the chunky chips were oozed just right. The let down was the starter. Two of us had the...

We were in room 14, large room with sea view and sofa, although the sofa had seen better days, the springs had gone. Very clean especially bathroom. Large choice for breakfast which was good. Staff were welcoming and very helpful. Cannot fault...

I arrived at Dukes on Saturday 19 March at 11.45am. My room was ready so I was able to check in early, drop my bag and have lunch with my brother and sister in law who had already arrived - we were visiting Sidmouth to attend a family party for my niece who had just turned 18. Unfortunately my wife...

Booked a table for last Saturday evening when we were in Sidmouth for a few days .I enjoyed my meal but my husband did not rate his surf and turf main course. However, the waitress told her supervisor who dealt with the matter in a most business like way so that we both left happy. The place was heaving with...

The rooms are nicely done, however we had no heating in our bathroom so it was very cold in there.The bar is done out well and offer a good range of drinks . We didn't have a evening meal but breakfast was very good with lots of choice. The staff are helpful.

Had a great one night stay in room 7 at the dukes inn, sidmouth. Room was lovely, bed comfy, all the staff were very friendly. The food was fantastic, both breakfast and dinner. Dinner was the burger, and the relish that came with it was the best I've had. Breakfast was huge, with a full English, and a seemingly unlimited...

Quick dinner when staying for 2 nights nearby. Friendly Aussie waiting staff! Both veggie & beef burgers were excellent, just right.

As a frequent visitor to Dukes I have always enjoyed the lively atmosphere and good food.Nice to drop in for a coffee too. However our recent trip was totally spoilt by the noise from two yapping dogs who were totally out of control.The owners fault you might think-but not an isolated incident so perhaps Dukes should review their dog friendly...

Had a great couple of days in Sidmouth and staying at Dukes was a highlight. Despite a very busy Christmas and New Year the place looked clean and fresh and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included in our rate and was first class...don't miss the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon...also good coffee .
