The rooms are spotlessly clean, warm and very cosy with lovely bed linen and the towels. Breakfast was delicious with a really good choice, not just cereal and the usual full English, I...

This reasonably priced B&B really couldn't get any better. My room was beautifully furnished, immaculately clean, warm and comfortable. Good TV reception as well. There is limited off street parking, and it works OK. Breakfast was as delicious as it was generous and the proprietors are welcoming and friendly. Two Indian and one English restaurants are a short walk away....

Spotlessly clean, comfortable rooms. Wonderful welcome and attention to detail including delicious shortbread with tea making facilities, cotton buds and pads in bathroom. Excellent choice of breakfast with lovely granola with fresh fruit, yogurt and honey. Good short walking distance to all parts of Sidmouth. Value for money.

The location, room, welcome, breakfast and comfort are all excellent. The shops, sea and beach, restaurants and a pleasant park are all in easy walking distance. We would have loved to have had the time to stay longer. Well done to Marc and Jan.

We have just spent 5 nights staying at Marc and Jan's beautiful guest house. Everything about it was wonderful: the welcome, the room, the breakfast, the conversation, the service. Nothing they wouldn't do to make everything perfect. We will visit again. One of the best places to stay that we have found and will tell everyone about it! Thank you...

Canterbury House was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble. Marc and Jan are delightful. I would definitely go back again. Fantastic breakfasts. Delightful spacious room with marvelous shower. Everything was spotless and small details such as cotton buds supplied just added that extra 'something'

We were back at Canterbury House again last week. We booked very last minute, the morning of our afternoon arrival in fact, as the weather was set to be good for the week. I'm so glad we returned. Marc and Jan offer top notch hospitality and very clean, comfortable accommodation. The breakfasts, which I believe they have won awards for,...
