My husband booked this break for my birthday treat. Sea view and right in the centre of everything. Lovely and clean and lovely and quiet. Breakfast was absolutely amazing and so much choice. Very friendly staff serving and cooking breakfast. I would definitely recommend this beautiful b&b. One funny part of this experience was “not on a Monday “ which is what we were told in every cafe and restaurant we tried to find and book for our evening meal. But we found a saviour in a pub just two minutes away that DO serve food on a Monday! Will definitely return to see you again...thank you Blenheim ...Traci and Scott xx

Returned to the Blenheim many times, and will continue to do so. It is a great location, practically on the sea front and next to the rail line. Seconds away from the local bus transport and three minutes from the railway station with links to Exeter and Torquay and more, across the road you are on the Green where the famous Black Swans live. The owners are intent on making your stay comfortable and nothing is too much trouble, you just have to ask. Breakfasts are amazing, all the usual starters cereal, juice and the most yummy yogurt/granola pots topped with berries or passion fruit. The Big Blenheim Breakfast is not to be beaten, you can choose what you want and everything is cooked fresh. Rooms are clean, fresh and have all the amenities and are serviced daily You also have a microwave, kettle and fridge, plenty of wardrobe/drawer space and a large TV. Waking in the morning to a view of the sun coming up over the sea is something we adore. We cannot wait to come back.

OMG what a beautifully fantastic place. We walked in to a great welcome, the owners are so lovely, the room is amazing, on the sea front so listening to the sea in our room . So impressed we have booked for Easter 2022. I can confidently recommend as a 5 star retreat, support this wonderful place that is in the middle of all that is happening but still quiet enough to relax Oh and the bed is amazing… just sink snd relax xxx

Me and my wife stopped here for 1 night on the way home from Cornwall. We were a little sceptical as we don't normally stop in B&Bs but how wrong we were. We had a lovely welcome and immediately felt at home. We stopped in Baywatch. The room was lovely! It was far more than expected. We had a big TV (managed to watch netflix), a little kitchen area with a fridge, microwave, sink and toaster. We also had a table with chairs if we needed to eat. The room had a beautiful view of the sea. We had a separate shower room with toilet and sink. The shower wasn't the biggest, but was very clean and had plenty of pressure. The bed was so comfortable and had the best sleep of our holiday. We came down for breakfast and all we can say "wow" we had a beautiful granola yoghurt pot which my wife will try and recreate when we get home. I had the best full English breakfast I've had in a very long time. My wife had a 4 egg bacon and cheese omelette which was cooked to perfection. Unfortunately I had to help her finish it off, which I was not complaining about! We had choice of juices and tea/coffee. Overall earned an easy 5 stars. The Girls were really helpful and nothing was any trouble. We would come back to Dawlish just to stop at The Blenheim. Thanks for having us Scott & Amanda
