Good clean hotel.staff nice and friendly. Breakfast good variety too. Ideal to park car at the hotel carpark and use park and ride to city centre which is right opposite .this only takes about 20 minutes and they are every ten minutes.The Barn Owl restaurant is right next door too.this is good for a drink in the evening.

Ideally situated for overnight stop to the West Country we have used this hotel several times. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable and the staff pleasant. The included breakfast is basic but adequate ( eggs, sausage but no bacon). In its category it is basic but excellent value.

Dear Michael C,

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments on our Hotel on Tripadvisor.

As a company our focus is our Guest Experience and most importantly, the reason for your visit, a great nights sleep.
Our Free Express Start breakfast is vastly y a continental choice however I do hope you took advantage of our 3 hot choices of sausage, scrambled egg and beans too.

I am so pleased you had a fantastic nights stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you back to our Hotel.

Kindest Regards
Meghan Williams

Its easy to be dismissive of large chain hotels, but as always its always the staff that make or break a place. The people at the Exeter holiday in are great. Welcoming and friendly, dealing with check in and out promptly and efficiently.
The hotel itself is well positioned for the airport and close to the Exeter M5 motorway junction. Its clean and modern with a chain pub restaurant (Vintage Inns) just across the car park serving good food and beer. Try it if you need an overnight stop in the area, you could do a lot worse than stay here.

I would stay here again. It's clean and quiet, with a good welcome from the staff. Breakfast is simple but what you need.

Pub over the road for the evening meal, and the staff were happy to give directions for takeaways or supermarkets.

I stay all over the UK and this is one of the best hotels I stay in, the staff are very friendly and polite. The hotel is clean and tidy with good décor. The bedroom was clean this continued into the bathroom. The bed was comfortable and I had a good nights sleep.
Breakfast was good with hot food.
Ideal location near the M5 and Exeter centre not far away.

I reviewed this hotel previously as excellent but unfortunately gave the wrong rating I meant to have rated it as 5 and will do so now. This hotel was excellent value it was clean , quiet, convenient and comfortable, with a large car park The staff were extremely helpful and efficient especially reception, where our requests when booking were all implemented. On arrival check in was quick and information given including maps on the park and ride (situated near by) and details of Exeter including the cathedral. There is a pub/restaurant adjacent to the car park serving excellent cuisine in a friendly and cosy atmosphere. We will definitely return for a third time when in the area.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor overlooking the gardens were in our opinion the quietest.
