Just stayed one night on a dinner, bed & breakfast package which usually includes a set dinner menu. Imagine our delight when we were told we could select anything off the a la carte menu. Food was excellent, service great, everything very enjoyable.
We were booked into Room 13 on the ground floor. On entering the room we remarked how dark is was despite it being a very sunny afternoon. Very quiet and enjoyable except for creaking floorboards of the room directly above and terrible pillows.
Location is good, easy to find. Gardens excellent, we sat outside for the first time this year and it was very pleasant.
Breakfast was good even though the toast was served burnt!
I suppose the pillows spoilt what would have been an perfect stay

Room Tip: I suppose a room on the upper floor won't have the creaking floorboard problem that we did.

Dear Brian,
thanks so much for your GREAT REVIEW!
You're right, the creaky floorboards are difficult to address but we are having our public areas refurbished in the autumn and will look at them then.(WE'll also have some new pillows!)
Thanks once again for taking the time to post such a WONDERFUL REVIEW.
I hope to see you back very soon.

Good hotel with nice grounds, relatively close to city centre.
I would stay again, however it needs a overhaul to update.
It was probably of its time in the 90's.
Staff were all friendly but lacked pace & urgency, especially reception.
Absolutely nothing wrong with hotel just lacked finesse and crispness.

Nice clean hotel, very easy to get into Exeter City Centre. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The restaurant menu was limited, but the food was good and fairly priced. Cooked breakfast was very tasty. Room was clean, bed comfortable, shower - pressure of water not great! Only slight niggle would be - at time of booking would have been good to know there was a wedding reception and more importantly, the evening do going on!! The disco went on until midnight, but the doors kept being opened for smokers to go outside, right under our bedroom windows!! However thatvadide, so good experience.
