The Royal York and Faulkner Hotel is a magnificent Regency Hotel with an unrivalled position on Sidmouth’s elegant Esplanade. Guests can enjoy glorious sea-views from balconies offering uninterrupted views of Sidmouth beach, Lyme Bay and the red rock Jurassic cliffs of East Devon’s coastline. Owned and run by the Hook family, resident proprietors for more than seventy years, the hotel has earned a long-standing reputation for hospitality and traditional service.
Just a stone’s throw from the beach and the picturesque town centre, our seafront hotel is the perfect choice for a relaxing break in the unspoilt seaside resort of Sidmouth.
Our silver service restaurant offers a varied menu of classic and modern cuisine with meals freshly prepared from locally sourced food. The four-course table d’hote dinner menu gives a choice at all courses.
Guests can choose between three beautifully furnished ground floor lounges. There is also the stunning sea view lounge bar where guests can take in wonderful sea views whilst relaxing with a drink or light lunch. Evening entertainment, including music for dancing, is offered after dinner on 4 nights each week.
Many of our comfortable well-appointed guest bedrooms enjoy sea-views. The very sought after deluxe rooms lead to the balcony. Here guests can relax and enjoy splendid views of the Esplanade and Lyme Bay. Our individually furnished bedrooms differ in style, size and décor. Some are more traditional, befitting this fine Regency building, whilst others have a more modern and contemporary style.
There are also two private suites in Wyndham Court, adjacent to the hotel, which offer added space and privacy. Both have balconies with the same splendid sea views of the famous South West coastline.
The hotel’s stunning spa, Aspara, is contemporary in design, with an interior featuring Italian natural stone, glass and steel. Located on the lower ground floor; it includes a hydrotherapy pool, steam room and sauna. The Beauty Rooms offer a wide range of face, body and spa treatments.
