“Gourmet base to explore Exeter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

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.

We spent one night at the hotel when visiting Exter - staff were very friendly and helpful, hotel was very cosy and the restaurant was superb - we had dinner there and the food was fantastic - absolutely delicious and very well presented - the staff and chef also were very helpful with advice for food allergies which was much appreciated!
Definitely recommend this hotel and the adjoining restaurant for any visit to Exeter!

We ( my mum, my aunty and I) stayed at the queens court hotel last week after traveling down to exeter for a family funeral, we arrived on the thursday and although the room was originally booked as a double we asked if I was able to stay in the room (armed with my sleeping bag ) the receptionist was kind enough to upgrade our room to a family room with out any fuss or addition cost and i was able to return the sleeping bag back to the car thank god!
The room was spacious and clean and the beds were comfortable and the shower was extreamly good.
After setting our things in our room we returned to reception to ask if there was anywhere local to eat the receptionist was very helpful in directing us towards some local pubs serving food and take aways. After returning from dinner we decided to sit in the bar for a little while and enjoyed a few drinks,the staff again were pleasant.
The next morning we went down for breakfast and again both the food and service was good.
After breakfast we returned to our room after borrowing an iron and ironing board from reception which they kindly lent us, we went up to prepare for the funeral which wasnt until 3.30 we wernt keen on having to sit around all day in our funeral attire and so asked reception if were able to check out a little later than 11 am to enable us time to have a look around exeter before returning to get ready for the funeral. The receptionist once again was extreamly helpful and allowed us to check out at 1.30 with no additional cost being incurred.
When it came to check out the staff were friendly they wished us well on our day and travels back home and in return we gave the staff a box of chocolates to share out to say thankyou for all there help.
In summary the hotel and its staff were brilliant, the staff really helped make our stay a good one and we would definatly stay again and wouldnt fail to recommend this hotel.
The service, facilities and proximitey to the town centre make this an excellent choice for anyone wanting to stay in exeter.

Good hotel if you are looking for a central location in Exeter so near enough to shopping and the Picture House. Although the room had a nice bathroom, the room itself was tiny

Room Tip: Ask for a larger room

This was a real dissapointment. I concur with a number of the other comments. The room lacked attention to detail, bathroom was a mess and needed redoing. This is a cross between a B&B trying to up market and missing. A real problem with noise from the hallway (to his credit a reduction was provided in the price when pointed out) but this lacks attention to detail.

The restaurant was however a real find and lovely, breakfast also good but would be nice to not have breaksfast food not on the menu from previous customers... just shows the lack of detail. Wifi was only free for an hr and really for the price should be included. Will not stop again.

Room Tip: Avoid the room on the first floor adjacent to the door on the hallway - the squeaking floorboards on...
