As a previous Exeter resident returning for a wedding, I was looking for a reasonably priced crash pad for a Saturday night. The White Hart's main positives are its city centre location (all sights within easy walking distance) and the fact that the building compromises a charming old pub.
The room itself was dated, with peeling wallpaper and an old carpet. Our room was in a separate building from the old pub, and this area is showing its age. Tatty and in need of a refit. The room was reasonably clean though and the bathroom of an ok standard. Breakfast was average but worth having as it is included in the price.
I would say this place offers reasonable value for an overnight stay but don't expect a modern hotel. If I was staying in Exeter for a weekend or longer I would choose alternative accommodation.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The White Hart Hotel is a Public House which boasts 55 newly refurbished en-suite bedrooms (October 2015). All are non-smoking and inclusive of full English breakfast and FREE PARKING. The hotel is an old 'Coaching Inn' built in 1356! And is situated in the City Centre within the old city walls. There was an extension built on the back for 32 of the rooms in 1971 (These rooms have lift access). However the remainder rooms including the suite are located in the 'Old Part' above the Inn (These involve stairs and no lifts.) This part is a 'listed'property as the building is an 'historical place of interest' due to its part in Medievil history. The Pub boasts a large 'Chargrill Menu' concentrating on Steaks, Burgers & traditional pub classics to suit all tastes. There are 2 bars. The 'Tap Bar' is open 7 days a week and is traditional 'Olde Worlde' pub still with all the Medieval fixtures & fittings that has lots of fine Real Ales to choose from. And a 'Cider Bar' that opens at weekends and was newly refurbished in October 2015 & is where breakfast is served every morning. The pub also boasts an exclusive 'Secret Garden' very popular with couples. It's ideally situated to enjoy all the city has to offer, from its famous Gothic Cathedral, The Quay & the Princesshay shopping centre. ... more less
