Innkeeper's Lodge Exeter, Clyst St George
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Having booked to stay at the Exeter Toby Carvery on Saturday 03 May, I was telephoned at lunchtime on that day to be advised that my planned accommodation had a 'heating problem' and that my reservation had been changed to the Innkeeper's Lodge at Clyst St. George, some distance away from the previously preferred venue. I now regard this unexpected move to have been to my advantage. On arrival I was made most welcome by Ian who showed my to my room. A little later I realised that the bathroom fan was running even though the light was not on. Having requested assistance from reception, Ian arrived and rectified the fault. My room was clean and tidy with good facilities. Breakfast was better than expected and my request for a variation from the norm was immediately accommodated. I would have no hesitation in recommending this venue to others. excellent value for money with outstanding service, especially from Ian!

We always go to this establishment when we are holidaying in Devon as we have never been disappointed with both the food and the service...
And we weren't this time either!
The service was friendly and thorough. We were served by Ian and he was lovely.
The food was gorgeous, we're still talking about it now 2 weeks later!
Can't recommend it highly enough.

Located on a junction, the inevitable road noise is compounded by the building age and lack of room insulation from corridors and neighbouring residents. Our room was fairly spacious and comfortable but is due a deep clean and perhaps a general revamp. A great TV contributed little to our stay as most of the channels were without any signal. The helpful and capable manager was however excellent, as were most of the staff and the food offerings on our two day stay were surprisingly good; a chef who can cook fish perfectly was unexpected and the accompanying sauces flavoursome. Inclusive breakfasts are only of continental style but they make that clear beforehand which is fine and the coffee tasted of .......coffee; far from the norm in considerably more salubrious establishments.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear which overlook the car park or courtyard may (or may not) be quieter to those near...

We stopped here for lunch and hadn't booked. We were swiftly seated in an already busy lunchtime service. We were very impressed with the service, from all the staff, especially our waitress Sophie. The food was really delicious. Definitely will be returning.

a late booking for just one night and the St george and dragon provided a perfect family room, exceptionally clean in all areas. The room was warm and provided everything we needed for a perfect stay. Evening meal was spectacular, large portions and well made as well as nicely presented in a quiet restaurant environment. Staff were very pleasant and attentive. All in all, one of the nicest places I have stayed in

Room Tip: advise them of your needs and if they possibly can, they will provide it...to a high standard
