This old hotel is part of a terrace on an elegant square in a fairly central location in Exeter. Exeter suffered a lot of bomb damage from WWII but this square seems intact. The hotel has several floors but (quite rare in smaller hotels in the UK) it has a lift. The rooms are comfortable without being luxurious. The hotel staff seem anxious to please, but fall down on little things like not helping me and my wife to hoist luggage up the front steps, even though I had announced my presence by going in to ask where to park. Parking is in the square itself, and we got lucky and found a spot. The biggest attraction of the hotel is that it houses a gourmet restaurant, which serves breakfast and also opens for evening dinner. The food was excellent. The hotel is located in a good position to tour Exeter; the cathedral is about a 15 minute walk. Since I had heard of the bomb damage I had few expectations, but in fact Exeter has a lot of interesting things for the tourist. I recommend the cathedral of course, the museum ( a wonderful Victorian structure), and the wool trade circuit (get a pamphlet from the info center). The wool walking tour goes through some very old medieval districts with interesting buildings still intact, and ends up on the wharf on the river, which has been restored and has good pubs and restaurants.
