We visited for two nights during Easter week, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were beautifully looked after from check-in to check-out, nothing was too much trouble. I can also recommend the breakfasts, great quality and in a very relaxed environment. This is a great hotel for a little bit of luxury positioned right in the heart of the city, surrounded by good restaurants.
Our room, 202, overlooked the beautiful cathedral green, getting a room with a very is very much 'worth it' in my opinion. Ours was very well appointed with good air-con and the bed was very comfortable. It is one of the only hotel beds I have ever slept in where I have felt a little disappointed to find my self back on my own mattress. We didn't experience any noise as some other reviewers have flagged, our room had secondary glazing which worked a treat.
A note on the car parking - it is 5 mins walk from the hotel, but what do you expect in a city centre location, with a hotel looks out onto1000 year old cathedral in the very centre of Exeter!! The hotel rate at the car park is actually excellent value. When you want to leave the car park, reception issue you with a ticket (£10.50) to raise the barriers. This ticket can then be used multiple times within a 24 hour window allowing you to come and go without incurring extra charges. It effectively works out at £10.50 per day for city centre parking on those days where you want to use your car to access all that Devon has to offer. But if you stayed a week and didn't leave the car park once during that timethen a week's parking would still only cost you £10.50 to raise the barrier on departure! ( I think I have got that right... and to my mind it is an excellent service, justifying the short walk.)
Will be returning soon...
- 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
