“Well placed but disappointing”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

This hotel is in a good position - a five minute walk into the town centre - on a quiet square. However, our room was small for a double ( even though we had paid extra for a larger room) and the bathroom needed up dating. We had a good night's sleep but the food for the tasting menu evening meal was disappointing and not of the standard we have experienced in other hotels for the same money. We weren't made particularly welcome although the young men serving the meal in the restaurant were a little more helpful.

£99 for B&B for two, plus a lovely 6 course tasting menu! Great position, close to city centre, friendly service, decent rooms in a beautiful building. The breakfast was good and we'd definitely return here on another offer. Great stuff!

An overnight stay on 6th April was superb. 5 min walk into town centre. Easy parking.
Friendly staff, room lovely, but the 6 Course Tasting Menu was amazing. A huge thank you to our lovely young waiter, who complimented the evening with bringing us his own homemade Petit Fours ...... deliciously wonderful. Thank you :)

Room Tip: 107 - lovely large room and quiet

Another Travelzoo offer, mixed bag, so in order - reception was great, welcomed in a very friendly manner. Room was on thrid floor - lift only goes to second so lugged case up a narrow flight. Roome VERY small with sloping ceilings resulting in banged head every time I went to the loo. Clean, hot water. Bar prices too high - we spent £62 between 4. Taster menu excellent. Breakfast tasty but a bit meagre with only one slice of bacon and the waitress obviously went out for a fag break half way through and stank of smoke when she came back. In these days, unacceptable. Good value but wouldn't stay again unless a better room.

Room Tip: No lift to third floor.

We stayed last night on the travelzoo offer for £99.00 for one nights stay, six course taster menu and breakfast. Lovely helpful staff, taster menu was very nice though I wouldn't normally choose to eat duck or venison, breakfast was spot on lovely piping hot and fresh produce. Can't fault the staff in the hotel or restaurant very charming and attentive. Only minor points with room not the biggest room in the world but nice big bathroom, starting to look a little tired which is such a shame. Stayed in room 106 and at the moment it has scaffolding outside the window which we wouldn't have been too happy if men had been on the scaffold outside the bedroom window! No bulb in one of bedside reading lights and the other one didn't work. T.V. in room really small, Paint peeling on window in bathroom and really worn toilet seat, but other than that very clean and on this offer very good value for money 5-10min walk from City Centre so good location. Please note the hotel no longer issues voucher/tickets for parking in the car park.

We took advantage of a brilliant offer to stay here for one night with breakfast, and six course tasting menu, for just £99. This is a lovely little hotel in a good central location. Our room was small but spotless and more than adequate but it is in the food where this hotel jumps into the top league. We loved the tasting menu which offered something for every palette and clearly cooked by chefs with a passion for their work. We were there on a Monday night and there were also non-guests using the dining room, they too were enjoying their food. The wine list is small but very fairly priced. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. Looking forward to staying here again when the chance arises.

I happened to be in Exeter for visiting the local University. I chose this hotel mainly for its location, close to the St. David's train station, to the uni and to the city centre. The cathedral is only 10 minutes' walking from here down to queens street. The quay and the river side area are a bit further but still easy to reach with a pleasant walk.
The hotel looks really nice and the staff was lovely. I remember I arrived late but didnt have any problem at checking in.
Food too was great.
I definitely recommend it!
