We only wanted one night and thought this hotel might not be wonderful as it was inexpensive.
However we were pleasantly surprised . The staff were all welcoming and efficient and helped us to book a taxi later . Our bedroom was warm, clean with good furniture and decor - and oh joy ! A decent light to read by !All staff in reception and restaurant were friendly and polite. I don't understand why Rob-Lyn said it needed a facelift - unless this has now been effected ! Our ground floor room was absolutely fine . Minor grumbles - no heating in bathroom; also like most hotels there was no dim night light to help guests find their way into the bathroom in the middle of the night - putting a bright light on disturbs the other guest. The restaurant could
do with double glazing (even secondary) as it was chilly sitting by the window. The breakfast was excellent with good choice (including haddock and kippers !) - but it was not cheap. We did not eat in the evening but checked the menu and it too seemed a bit expensive - though I assume the bar menu would be less. Very spacious rooms and bar area. Good car parking and close to M5. Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Exeter.
