Spent 2 nights at Park View B&B and were very pleased with our accommodation. We had Room 8 at the top of the house (be warned if you can't manage stairs - there are 3 flights!) The room was clean, with a large double bed, plenty of wardrobe space, bedside tables & a dressing table, good lighting and an excellent en suite bathroom. A large tv was provided & also 2 armchairs.
Hairdryer was available from reception. Excellent wifi connection too for our tablets. It was very warm in the room and it would have been useful to be able to secure the two large windows open as they had a tendency to swing shut! An electric fan would also have been good as it was very humid on the days we stayed.
Breakfast was good - although I don't eat wheat or sugar so was limited to a cooked breakfast. This was freshly cooked although I suspect bacon had been cooked in advance & kept warm, as it was rather dry. Mushrooms were tinned ones which had been fried and had an unpleasant tang to them.
Unfortunately when several guests arrived at once, 15 minutes before the end of breakfast service there was a considerable wait for cooked breakfasts but I guess this will happen in any establishment.
We were able to leave our case in the lounge whilst we met a friend for lunch and return later to collect it prior to catching our train back to London.
Overall park View is a good place to stay convenient to central Exeter, very close to Exeter central rail station and at £70 a night for a large double room with breakfast is brilliant value. I would definitely stay here again.
