Our second visit this year having stayed for our birthdays in March, this time we chose a classic guestroom as opposed to a privilage room, while the decor is'nt as modern it is still a nice room, you don't get a safe as you do in privilage room but you do get a fridge where we did'nt in the privilage room. Once again we found all staff warm and friendly and eager to please. This time we used the pool and it was a lovely experience, clean and well looked after, only minor complaint would be at 31degrees the pool was a little too warm for me. Breakfast was fantastic with wide choice of cerals,fruits,cold meats,cheeses and plenty to choose from for a cooked breakfast. Parking is charged at £10 a day and you can find cheaper nearby but for me £10 for secure parking is'nt a lot to pay. Hotel is in excellent location for catherdral and wonderful shopping areas, do take stroll down to the quay it's fantastic with great pubs for a drink and something to eat, there are also lovely walks along the river Exe. you can also get the train from Exeter to nearby seaside resorts around Devon and Cornwall if you fancy a change of scenery. As part of our booking there was a welcome gift on arrival, however we did not receive until 2nd day after having to ask 3 times but once it was delivered it was lovely the chocolate fudge was to die for, recently i have noticed a couple of bad reviews of this hotel, well for my wife and i these are unbeliveable they must be proffesional complainers, we love Exeter and this hotel and can't wait to return in the future.
