We chose St Andrews because it was one of the few hotels within walking distance to the city centre that had free parking.

I stayed here with my husband for one night, as we were going out in Exeter with friends and needed somewhere to stay. All the staff we met were friendly and made us feel welcome. The room itself was amazing, very spacious (we were in a family room) and we hardly heard any noise from the road or other people... More

nice hotel, ten mins walking fm downtown, with a free open parking. Rooms very nice and big, and breakfast is very nice. Be careful with front room as a little noisy due to main road passing by.In general worth a short stay

Stayed here for 5 nights. Because we arrived on a Sunday afternoon when reception was closed a very helpful email was sent prior to arrival with instructions on obtaining a key to the entrance and our room so that we could make ourselves comfortable and book-in when reception re-opened.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
St Andrews Hotel is well located within the historic city of Exeter, Devon and is situated close to the picturesque quayside and to the Marsh Barton Trading Estate in the Alphington district. Matford Business Park is less than 1 mile away, which is convenient and practical for anyone looking to venture away on business. It is also close to St Thomas train station, a 15 minute walk to Exeter Cathedral and the Princesshay shopping precinct. We are just 10 minutes easy drive from Junction 31 of the M5 motorway, which means that you can reach us by car without having to contend with City Centre congestion. Being ideally placed allows for easy access to the Devon Countryside, for those of you wishing to visit Dartmoor or the South Devon Coast. St Andrews Hotel is situated on a regular and frequent bus route and Exeter Airport is a 15 minute drive away. There are two comfortable lounges for relaxation and reading. Free parking is available for guests in our large on site car park. Free Wi-Fi internet access is available in all areas. Our dining room is well appointed and offers a full English or continental breakfast to suit your requirements. ... more   less
