Exeter’s excellent stopover
Great hotel situated in the heart of Exeter. Easy to locate, easy to park, overall an ideal stopover!

overnight stay
the hotel was good but for three things .Firstly in the bathroom (rm 11)there was black mould on the ceiling which whilst cleaning the room only takes a couple of seconds to remove.secondly where the beds had been pushed together the mattress was very uncomfortable down the centre.Finally when we asked for room service (10pm ish) we were told to use a machine in reception . regards Darren Cloke

2nd time I have stayed at this hotel and both times have been a great experience. On this occasion, my partner and I also travelled with our 6 month year old son. The service at the hotel was very good and was pleasantly surprised that we were able to check in early. The hotel itself is decorated nicely and is clean and another real asset is the location as it is a short walk into the centre of the city. A major reason we returned was because of the pool. The pool is a decent size and is heated at a temperature suitable for babies and young children. This was a huge attraction as we had wanted to take the baby into a pool but the local ones where we lived were a bit cold. Ate both breakfast and dinner at the hotel also. In hindsight, had we not been tired, it would have been better to go outside the hotel for dinner but it did the job. Breakfast was fine too. Advantages: swimming pool. cleanliness, location, staff service Negatives: you need to pay for parking although we were aware of this having visited before

1 night break- fab location
Excellent service from the start. Double room changed for a twin straight away. Minor criticism- someone else’s sock under the table in the room. Great room layout and facilities . Read reviews about no hospitality tray but found it in the fake chest of drawers. Fabulous location and car parking . Decorated nicely for Xmas Would definitely stay again.
