Park View Hotel, Exeter
Travelling by train from London to Cornwall, we broke our journey at Exeter for one night. Therefore we wanted a nice B&B a short walk from the railway station and into town for a feed. The Park View deserves every bit of its high rating with Tripadvisor. The rooms were stylish, clean and spacious with good natural light. The hosts provide a great breakfast and were very friendly including suggesting a very good and affordable place to eat. The Park View is less than 10 minutes walk from the railway station and from the town centre. As the name suggests, it faces a lovely park so it is a beautiful and quiet spot. Their website has walking directions from the train – its very easy to find. It is also worthwhile visiting the magnificent Exeter Cathedral, just a short walk downtown and trying a delicious Devonshire tea from one of the nearby cafes.

A warm welcome, spotlessly clean room and bathroom...comfy bed...superb location. gawjus dining room and delicious piping hot fresh breakfast.
At £42 per night its a no brainer. A lovely large lounge which has a big TV so you can sit and relax in the evening if you so wish. The guys that run it work hard...and it shows....BOOK NOW

Basic but tastefully done B&B in the heart of Exeter, 10 mins walk and your in the city. Breakfast is fantastic and the service warm and welcoming. Ideal location for visiting Sandy Park rugby ground to as the bus stops close by. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Top rooms mean a climb but great view

An excellent weeks accommodation in a very friendly and spotlessly clean room.
Excellent bathroom with shower - good hot water supply and new sanitary ware.
Tea / coffee facilities in room.
Breakfasts were excellent with a good choice and very efficiently and cheerfully served. Even made special arrangements to serve breakfast early for us on the Sunday which was much appreciated.
We were made very welcome and would not hesitate to use this establishment again if in the City.
Thank you very much for looking after us so well.

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.

Room Tip: Room number 8 is a large ensuite room at the top of the house with views over the park. Excellent wi...

I very much enjoyed my week-long stay in this wonderful place with the park and garden view. Nikki and Phil are very pleasant and welcoming owners who take pride in their business and service. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and cozy. The breakfast is delicious and individually cooked. It is an overall great experience. I would definitely stay there again.

Second time at this nice b&b. can recommend.
Will come back and stay again. Ideally situated for town and uni. Also close to train stations. Exeter is a beautiful place and this place accommodates everyone's needs.
