Our reason for staying was a brief spell in the hospital for my husband. It is however,
a wonderful situation to explore the Exeter environs. Out of awful city centre traffic. Really easy to get to the hospital by car, and an even easier bus trip into the city.
The hotel is situated in a quiet location and is surrounded by the most lovely gardens with fabulous ancient trees. The rooms are pleasant but rather overheated. No problem as the next morning we change rooms to a much airier one. The garden full of lively squirrels was wonderful.
As a single woman I felt quite at ease having a very enjoyable bar meal. The staff are exceptionally pleasant and helpful - barr one young person, who needs to improve their interpersonal skills. I did not eat in the restaurant but the lounge bar food was very acceptable. Restaurant breakfast was delicious.
We had one real complaint. In a four star hotel, why do the bathrooms not have extractor fans? I do hope the owners read this and pay attention. Also, please employ a new interior (bedrooms) decorator. Brown, beige, bricks - what happened to colour design?
