We stayed at the Exton Hotel with our 22 month old son. The owners were very welcoming and could not do enough to make us feel at home and also gave useful information on the local area. The room was nicely decorated, clean and spacious with plenty of room for a travel cot. The bed was very comfortable and the room was cleaned to an excellent standard every day. The owners had obviously paid alot of attention to detail in the hotel and I would describe it as clean, stylish and comfortable.
The breakfast was delicious and there was a good selection of things to choose from.
I would recommed this hotel to anyone wanting a quality B&B accommodation that is situated in a quiet area of Torquay.

The hotel is spotlessly clean. Nothing is too much trouble for John or Julie, they are very hospitable and accommodating. The breakfast is first class. The bedrooms are kept immaculate. We spent 3 days with them in March and the rooms were always nice and cosy and we were able to have drinks in the bar.

We would recommend staying here the accommodation is first class.

We have just returned from our stay at the Exton Hotel and we could not fault it. From the minute we walked through the door we felt totally at home,Julie and John made us tea and got drinks for the children they too were made very welcome.The rooms were spotlessly clean and roomy, as was the rest of the hotel.The breakfasts kept us all going through the day ,they were wonderful and Julie was happy to make the children what they fancied. Julie and John had lots of local knowledge and took the time to tell us about some nice days out. They also have two lovely children and our girls were very sad to leave them,we will be visiting Torquay again and we would not stop any where else. We are all looking forward to staying there again.

  • Liked — the friendly hosts and home from home feel

We stayed at The Exton Hotel Friday 22nd June, we had just had a fantastic week in the South Hams where we'd hired a cotage and we just were not quite ready to go home. We found the Tourist Information office in Torquay and requested information with family rooms still available (we had our 2yr 8mth old son with us). The tourist office booked on our behalf after giving us some hotels to choose from and we chose The Exton. This was the first time I'd booked anywhere without researching thoroughly first and was feeling rather nervous, I have to say we were delighted!

Three very damp travellers were greeted 10 minutes after the booking was made at the door by John and Julie, we were shown in to the lounge and offered coffee and we chatted about our week and why we had come to Torquay - a lovely warm welcome. We also met Callum, their 19 mth old son who Finn loved playing with. After coffee we were shown to our room which was fantastic. We had the family room which consisted of a double and a bunk bed, plenty of storage space and a beautiful large window. The ensuite was compact and clean. The room was spacious, bright, clean and very comfortable.

When we returned from dinner that evening Julie and John lent us a baby monitor so once our son was asleep we could enjoy a drink in the bar. We chatted with the owners and two of the other guest over a few drinks. I then went to bed (2am at this point!), but my husband stayed up chatting into the wee small hours with Julie and John! The hotel is in a quiet area, so we were not disturbed by any noise, the beds were very comfortable, our son even slept until just after 9am - amazing!

Breakfast was served at 9am and there was a good selection of cereals, grapefruit and yogurt and of course a good cooked breakfast, with plenty of orange juice and coffee. Julie was very sweet and entertained my son with Callum while I finished my breakfast.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would call the Exton first if ever we were to stay in Torquay again (if they'd have us after my hubby kept them up so late!).

Stayed June 2007

My sister, A friend and I decided to have a girly weekend away, after ringing many hotels I decided i like the sound of this one because the lady on the phone was happy and others had sounded rude - we all got the train to torquey and the owner of the hotel kindly picked us up, we had an amazing stay here and i would go back - It was so friendly they didnt mind us doing girly things like walking round with face packs and hair dyes on! And the breakfasts were lovely and we were given as much as we could eat especially after a night out!The rooms were clean and there was no fault!
I would highly recomend this hotel - its only a walk away from the beach and town and a happy friendly atmosphier and very good value for money 10/10! Many Thanks

  • Liked — how friendly they were
  • Disliked — ?? nothing it was a great weekend away!
