I stayed two nights while on business in Exeter. Parking is always a problem in Exeter, and so it was here, with charges that seem more like central London. Inside, there is a pervasive 'pub-smell' that is an interesting mix of beer, and cooking oil. The room was up on the top, and the stairs were steep. With no lift, I was very pleased I had minimum luggage. The room was clean and warm, but the sound of the trains through St David's every 10-15 minutes and through the night can keep the light sleeper aware. The evening meal was good, and choice of beers excellent. In the attic, water pressure is low, so showers were more of a very light trickle! Breakfast was not so good so maybe be prepared to go out on the town. In this University town, there are a huge range of pubs, restaurants and eateries that you can try, and summer is a great time to sit out by the river too. I cant say it is a place I will hasten back to stay, but this hotel provided clean rooms and bed, in a good location, and free WiFi was a bonus.
