Flying into Exeter Airport we needed a good hotel to relax in as a one night stopover intending to travel on the next day to begin our holiday in Cornwall.
Wow this hotel was just right! Just 7 minutes walk from Exeter Airport along a good footpath and straight into the hotel reception where we were so warmly greeted and then we were in our room within a very short time even though the up-going lifts were not working at that time. The room was nicely decorated and everything worked perfectly. Nice size flat screen T.V. too!
This is a new hotel (16 months since opening) and had everything we needed to just relax. The room was very comfortable and overlooked the end of Exeter Airport's main runway and the golden corn/wheat fields. It was very quiet and yes it had a good strong signal for our WiFi devices.
The reception area and dining rooms were spacious and the lounge area was very comfortable with a number of four seater booths to relax and be quiet in. Meals could be eaten there also. In the morning there was a scrumptious buffet breakfast and with fresh fruit too! There was a 'Full English Breakfast' on offer - we were a little disappointed about what appeared to be processed scrambled eggs and not fresh fried eggs - but that's how it is these days.
Hey there was a free newspaper available for everyone and any amount of tea and coffee throughout the day so we just laid back and enjoyed ourselves until our transport arrived to take us on holiday - now what could be better. Do note that dogs are not really allowed into the hotel areas.
The most courteous of hotel staff went out of their way to provide the little things we needed like fresh milk for our tea and I noticed a member of the kitchen staff actually went to find some chocolate muffins for a young lad who seemed disappointed at finding the breakfast chocolate muffin plate empty as he had arrived very late for his breakfast - now that's what I call going the extra mile to please a guest, needless to say he was delighted and so were we!
There seems to be no actual restaurant inside the hotel but within the building in a separate area with its own entrance is a very nice restaurant called 'Marco's New York Italian' with a great menu and with what we would call 'reasonable prices'. I enjoyed a tender, tasty steak and my wife commented on the flavour and tenderness of the chicken meal. It was a enjoyable quiet evening with excellent attentive service even though they were busy.
This hotel was a joy to stay in and we would not hesitate to stay here again. Well done Hampton by Hilton you have two most satisfied customers who are more than happy with their stay.... keep it up!
