Reviewed 22 May 2013

Stayed 2 nights in upstairs twin room. Spacious but unfortunately spoilt by strong cigarette smoke smell, very off putting. Had to wash certain items on return home! Asked for quiet room which it was and our Sunday evening meal of baked salmon was beautiful. Plenty of breakfast on offer, shame no fruit. Staff very friendly. We realised we had stayed there approx 13 years ago when our downstairs room was tired then, feel it needs some money injected into the accommodation.

Room Tip: Extension of 2 storey brick building an improvement on almost 'prefabricated looking' older...

The bathroom has not been touched since the 1970's , take a look at photos . The hot tap was dripping constantly and when we turned hot tap on to have a bath the water came out like mud . We stayed there as part of a wedding group and the room was booked for us by the bride so I didn't want to upset anyone , but would not stay there again . Having said this the breakfast was lovely . We paid £40 for a double room which included all you can eat hot buffet breakfast . I would not have wanted to pay anymore . The building smelt of damp and really the whole place should be knocked down and started again .

Not a bad place to stay for a night or two but wouldn't fancy spending longer there. The bar and food on site was excellent and couldn't fault it. Our room was quite near a busy main road so it was quite noisy at night plus the window was faulty and wouldn't close shut.

Visited in March 2013 with family - 10 of us in total - about 4.30/5ish on a weekday for a birthday celebration. The place was much busier than we expected for that time of day. All ended up having a carvery. I'm not a fan of carveries at the best of times as don't like the idea of food sitting around and prefer it to be cooked fresh. At best it was average, at worst almost inedible Went for the turkey which, to be fair, was nicely cooked and not dry however the roast potates were so hard they nearly broke your teeth. I asked whether the stuffing had meat in or was sage an onion - blank look back and then told that it was just Paxo stuffing - so whatever was in Paxo. There was a good choice of veg but strangely all had been cooked to nearly mush and tasted the same. THe gravy was terrible and a strange green/brown type colour for the poultry gravy. The only saving grace here was the customer service - the Staff who served us were excellent. This place always seems to be busy and i'm really not sure why - I do have quite high expectations when eating out - I expect it at least to be slightly better than I could do myself (and I am by no means a good Cook!) but perhaps I have too high expectations for a national chain afterall and plenty of other people seem to like it but I have to say I thought the food was dreadful, In our group the only person who enjoyed it was age 5! That said, I didn't have desert, but others did and said they were good. This place seems to serve a purpose as frequently busy but i have to say I will try and avoid going back.

We stay here at least twice a year to visit family and yes it is dated and is need of a complete overhaul but linen is clean and food excellent and a good pub atmosphere.
Also the outside decor could do with a comple face lift

Room Tip: They are all pretty much the same

The rooms and public areas of the hotel are dated and could do with renovating. However this is made up for by the excellent value for money - £40 - for a double room with breakfast. The staff were helpful and friendly. The quality of the food was excellent. Unfortunately the radiator in our room was hot and we could find no way to turn it off. The bathroom (which actually had a bath) was in need of renovation, but the shower was very good - being powerful and hot at all times during our 4-day stay.

The location - within a 5 minute drive of junction 30 of the M5 is very convenient for the city of Exeter (the park and ride bus stops opposite the hotel).

Despite the fact that we slept with the window open (due to the hot radiator) we were undisturbed by traffic noise. We would certainly return.

You get what you pay for. Reception had to be called by phone, but they had to collect their own cup of tea from the kitchen. Room is tired and needs renovating. I stayed in it 4 years ago and it has not been done since then. Hot tap did not work, and no chair or stool for wife to preen herself. However the pub side was excellent although the menu was short but the food was good. Tip, don't order drinks from table as they take to long. Go to the bar yourself.
