“Very good stay at the premier inn!”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

I stayed here for 4 nights with my daughter and was pleasantly surprised by the great customer service received every time I saw a member of staff.

We stayed in a very spacious and modern room on the ground floor. The tv did not work the first night as they are having trouble with the signal at the moment. It worked for the remaining days, however. There was a lot of noise above which sounded like kids running about until 10pm but this soon settled. I would recommend getting a room on the above floors due to this.

The room itself was clean throughout and the beds were so comfortable that I didn't want to leave to go to my own bed at home! The only problem I had was that my 3three network did not work so couldn't get a signal within the room. It worked as soon as I left the room though!

As for the parking, it was a bit of a nightmare at times as I didn't want to fork out 9.90 at the station car park. My own fault really as had read about parking prior to booking hotel! I parked on the street opposite the hotel once but it was difficult trying to get a place there. On the last night, I discovered that there are many more car park spaces on the same side of the road of premier inn, only a little further up Bonhay Road. I parked outside the House of a Wong chinese takeaway and that was free from 6pm-9am. The food there is good too, and reasonably priced. Within a stones throw from the hotel! Wish I had known about these spaces beforehand.

Overall a decent stay. Customer service was brill so would stay again.

Room Tip: Don't get a room on the ground floor unless you're a heavy sleeper :)

Very convenient location next to main station in Exeter with all the comforts you know you will have a Premier Inn. No traffic noise at all, very quiet. Easy for taxi rank, local buses and train station, all within a stone's throw.

We booked this hotel based on the other reviews we read on Trip Advisor that were so positive. We often stay in Premier Inns as they are good value for money and very clean. Well this was no exception.
The hotel was a great bargain at £200 for 3 nights, extremely clean and our room was fairly spacious. The beds were very comfy. Although we didn't have the best night's sleep due to our 2 year old climbing out of the travel cot and into our and then her brother's bed until 10pm. The second and third night we all had to pretend to go to sleep really early just so she would sleep, then we could get up again! But this was not the hotel's fault just my two year old being a bit of a pickle!
We didn't eat once in the hotel's restaurant as we felt the prices were too high so we went to the local Weatherspoons 'The Imperial' which is a 3 minute walk up the hill. The food in there was amazing! We only had the breakfast each day but a full cooked for under £3.00 or there approx is very good value. The children had american pancakes with bacon ( we ate the bacon!) The meals were also very well priced and generous in size. We ate out and about and one day had fish and chips in the local chip shop which were amazing too!
The only negative of this hotel is the parking arrangement. Basically the hotel doesn't have any parking. You have to park in the station car park opposite the hotel at £10 a day, which includes all night too! We were lucky and parked in the side road for free as after 6pm no charge and then free parking for 2 hrs from 9am.So we didn't need to pick up the car until 11. This is ok if you can get a space and as we went mid-week they were available, but they are few and far between. There is only one space in the road as the others are permit holders only. I think the hotel should come to some agreement with the Station about parking because £10 a day is quite steep and if you have young children and there are no spaces on the side road then this is your only option.
Despite the parking we had a pleasant and very clean stay at the Premier Inn. Thank you.

This is a really good place to stay in Exeter at a very reasonable price. The staff are exceptionally helpful The hotel is well located particularly if you are travelling by train. Parking can be a little awkward but there are sufficient spaces within a short walking distance of the hotel.

I stayed at thus hotel over the period 17-19 August. Pew got off to a shaky start as a result of being assigned a room on the ground floor which was rather dated and noisy. I went back to reception to request a room change and was very impressed by the helpfulness of the 2 ladies who were on reception duty that evening. We were assigned a different room on the 2nd floor, which was clean and quiet.

Also good strategic location- appx 100 m from Exeter St David's Stn with great links to the rest of Devon and Cornwall; also a nice 15min walk into Exeter a City Centre itself.

On the whole, a decent budget hotel and I'd definitely stay here again

Room Tip: Avoid the ground floor rooms if possible. Sound proofing is not the best!

Comfortable stay in a modern building with good facilities. Ate in the restaurant, which was better than expected. Room was comfortable and quiet. Only downside is having to park in the station across the road, but not too expensive at £5 for 24 hours

Premier Inn is my first choice of budget hotel because of the comfort of the rooms and the level of service offered by the staff. We chose this hotel because we were travelling by public transport and it was close to the station. Unfortunately when we left the station the rain came down in torrents and within minutes we were soaked. It was 3 hours before we were due to check- in,but the helpful receptionist found us a prepared room so that we could get warm and dry before starting our sight-seeing in the city. The kindness with which we were treated means that Premier will continue to be my preferred option when looking for a hotel for a short stay.
The hotel was quiet with all the facilities we required and we both had an excellent night's sleep.
