This hotel and restaurant was a great venue!!!!'! Unfortunately in October there was a fire in a nearby building having renovations done, which caught fire and quickly spread to the hotel. The fire has completely gutted the hotel and what was left has been demolished. The oldest hotel in the country is no more and will be sadly missed.

We went here for a valentines evening meal and it was exceptional. Wonderful food, great atmosphere and staff. Situated overlooking the beautiful cathedral of Exeter, lovely old architecture. Tragically this hotel and restaurant burnt to the ground November 2016. I believe they will rebuild, but it was one of the oldest hotels in the U.K. so difficult to reproduce the... More

I have visited this restaurant many times and is always a pleasure. On this occasion I came with some friends to celebrate a friends engagement and as usual the service and food was fantastic. The staff know us well and always acknowledge us which goes down well, looking forwards to the next visit

We were staying at the Abode hotel. Full English breakfast was included. It was indeed comprehensive and delicious. Everything was very fresh (freshly squeezed juice, etc.). We also chose to eat dinner at the hotel twice because the food was so very good.

We went to Abode restaurant recently with friends and left feeling disappointed and mildly ripped off. Key issues were around service, environment and food. When we arrived we had a drink in the bar and were given menus to peruse before being taken down to eat. We waited for half an hour and no one came to take us to... More

Really enjoyed the food at Abode - the prix fixe has an excellent choice of dishes and is very good value for the standard of food presented. The place was pretty full early on Saturday evening and there was a good atmosphere without too much noise. The staff were unobtrusive and fairly efficient. Unfortunately there appeared a problem in the... More
