Exceptional 10.0
Always stay here when come to Exeter
Great hotel close to everything.
Julie, gb1 night trip
Fair 4.0
Average hotel
Hotel is conveniently located for the centre of the city. The room was clean and facilities in it were perfectly adequate - we had a Privilege room. The downsides were the main areas of the hotel were very cold and it made sitting for a coffee very uncomfortable. The breakfast service is a bit chaotic - we were given a table someone else was using (we saw that to someone else as well), parts of the food had run out, etc.
Mark, gb1 night trip
Good 6.0
We stayed for two nights to visit my daughter who is at uni in Exeter. The room itself was fine but the sound proofing in the room was awful so the first night we didn’t sleep very well. We had booked breakfast at the hotel and this was a disaster, we were sat at dirty tables no proper cutlery the food had nearly run out and they took 20 minutes to give me the cup of tea I had asked for 3 times. We cancelled our booking for the 2nd morning. On the plus side the hotel is in a great location I just felt the staff are too laid back
Vanessa, gb2 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
Clean , efficient does what it says on the tin only negative is having to pay to park
MicK, gb1 night family trip
Fair 4.0
The service, particularly for dinner, was poor. No plates given for our shared starter even when we asked for them. Not attentive. Insufficient herbal tea in room. Only 2 so we could only have one cup each in the evening and none in the morning. The pillows were rock hard and so we all had a bad nights sleep. I had booked this as we went to Disney On Ice and I wanted to treat my daughter to her first ‘hotel experience.’ I was really disappointed. I also think it is an extortionate price for parking when we were there for less than 24hours.
