I have been staying at this hotel for the past five years and I can't believe it has taken me until now to write a review!
The location of this hotel has to be the best in Exeter...opposite the Cathedral you get a real sense of the history of Exeter and the ambience is great.
I have spent a fair few nights in the hotel - both work and pleasure, on my own and with family and so seen a lot of the rooms; they are all different and quite quirky.
The food (in-restaurant and in-room) is great and the choice and quality of the food is spot on!
One potential negative for me - the hotel is looking a little decoratively tired in parts (chipped paintwork, slightly shabby in some parts e.g. en-suites but not bad - a bit shabby chic! bur t I think they need to be watchful that it doesn't lose the chic and just become shabby!).
Helen in the restaurant is great - first class service ALL THE TIME! and always goes that extra mile to take care of you.
Bryony on reception is always there to give a welcome smile; the reception staff are a real asset to this hotel, I have known a number of them over the years and they have all been great - as the "face of the hotel" they do it proud.
A great welcome, a great place to stay and bags of character!
I'm definitely looking forward to my next stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Looking to the future of The Royal Clarence, we have every intention to rebuild the hotel with enormous sympathy. The 18th-century hotel, said to be one of the oldest in England, was gutted when a blaze spread from an adjacent building on Friday morning. The fire wrecked the inside of the landmark building and left the frontage on the brink of collapse. ... more less
