Seaside charm since 1951

The Kingswood Hotel is enshrined in Sidmouth History – synonymous with the town’s historic esplanade, it has been home to a gentlemans club, holiday apartments, billiard hall, and most famously the towns saltwater baths. An integral part of Sidmouth’s growth and popularity as a health and holiday destination for Victorian Englands upper classes.

In our 71st year of family ownership, the offering of 50 rooms, open spacious public areas and delicious home cooked food make it as popular as ever for holidaymakers on the Jurassic coast.

 It’s perfect base for exploring the towns independent shops, relaxing on your balcony or enjoying a Devon crab sandwich on our sea-facing private patio.
