About the hotel

One of the first Regency houses to be built on the seafront in Sidmouth was Wallis’s Marine Library and Reading Rooms. This was the early nineteenth-century meeting place for Sidmouth’s fashionable summer visitors. Between 1815 and 1845 the building was enlarged, and by 1865 it had become the Bedford Hotel.

It’s now a Grade II* listed building and the pride of the Pyne family. Located at the heart of Sidmouth’s seafront means many rooms boast breathtaking panoramic views across Lyme Bay. With the beach just in front, the town right behind and attractive gardens all around, there is much to do within easy reach of The Bedford. All forty bedrooms are individually furnished, have flat screen televisions and en suite facilities. The hotel is centrally heated throughout and there is lift access to all floors. Accommodation is tailored to meet your needs not our convenience; single, double, twin and family rooms are available. As you would expect, the hotel also has comfortable lounges and offers a wide selection of good food and wine in a choice of attractive surroundings. Limited car parking is available at the rear of and around the hotel. A large public car park is conveniently opposite the hotel. Devon produces a wealth of food and many of our ingredients in the varied menus are home grown on the family farm ensuring fresh succulent vegetables and free range eggs. If you’d like a light lunch, snack or an evening a la carte meal, visit Pyne’s at The Bedford for a more informal atmosphere. With glorious views across Lyme Bay, Pyne's at The Bedford offers a choice of eating styles. The menus are prepared using fresh West Country produce and includes traditional seaside favourites, speciality fish and daily specials. Speciality Curry night every Wednesday, Pie Night every Thursday and traditional roasts served Sunday lunch times and evenings. Open 7 days a week for morning coffee, lunch and evening meals.

Comfortable stay in great location

This hotel gave a warm welcome.

The staff were very obliging. It was very clean and the room was very comfortable although the shower was quite small, especially for those like me of a bigger build. The hotel was ideally located on the seafront and close to the town centre. Parking is at a premium but there is a busy car park opposite that charges £12 for 24 hours parking. There was significant queues to access this car park during the day.
