“Back to 1960's”
Reviewed 22 November 2012

Firstly, this hotel is extremely friendly, the staff very attentive. The food is reasonable for the price of the hotel. Unfortunately, it would seem the owners have not the wherewithall to maintain the building, inside or out, very old fashioned, meagre amenitities, and in need of overall decorating. Let it be said that it is a family trying to keep a business together, and if they could be marked on personal terms and not the accommodation, they would score highly, as they are lovely people.

Reviewed 21 September 2012

My elderly parents recently stayed at this hotel, and unfortunately, my mother was taken ill whilst she was there. The care and support shown by Dave, the owner, was second to none. This even extended to him collecting my parents from the hospital at a quarter past midnight. When they left the following day, a day early, he also insisted on refunding them for the night they'd be missing. Such a refreshing change from the impersonal nature of so many hotels nowadays. So a slightly unusual review in as much as I've never visited the Exmouth View, but I will never forget the kindness which the owner and his wife showed my parents. Incidentally, they loved the hotel, and can't wait to go back there again. Thank you both.

I have been staying with Dave and Milka for the 4th time and always enjoy being there. If you´re looking for a warm welcome, great food and the friendliest hosts you can imagine rather than a fancy room you´re at the right place.
I´ll definitely be back!

Only a one night stay, but made very welcome by David and Milka. Place may be a bit old fashioned, but hey, what's wrong with old fashioned? Especially when good value and good hosts.

Been staying at Exmouth View for 4-5 years now both Winter and Summer, Hotel is a bit old fashion, but good. I like it. Milka meals are a treat and David is a very good host. After a day working its nice to go to find a friendly place to relax with a drink and a chat.Your not just a person in a room. I'll be back !

Reviewed 11 October 2011

after reading the last review about the smell, I was a bit apprehensive when going to the hotel and sniffed rather nervously as I went in. There was no smell at all !!
Milka and David are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them, even taking a lady home to Doncaster when she was ill. Taking guests to the theatre in the pouring rain and going to look for one person who had not returned with the rest. This is above and beyond the call of duty. The one niggle I had was that although we had all paid the same price - our room was at the back and a bit small, friends had a great room on the front of the hotel with great sea views.
