There is something soul destroying about checking into a chain hotel. You're just a number and all the rooms are the same. If you stay at the Inn at the Bandstand you will certainly know that you are not just another number and the rooms are certainly different. The full blown Victorian furnishings give a wonderful feel to the tooms and in November those drapes and the cosy bed were just what was needed. We immediately felt at home.
The inn is situated right in the center of the delightful town of Exeter so it's just a short stroll to both shops and eateries. Jim was helpful in pointing us in the right direction not only as to where to eat but also to the other places we were travelling too. We thought we could mnage without sat. nav. or maps. We were so wrong.
Breakfasts challenged Jim's repetoire of dishes as neither my husband or I can tolerate eggs, but he rose to the challenge admirable. Factor in the readily available coffee and of course cookies and you're on to a winner.
This was the first time we'd stayed in a New England Inn but I can thoroughly recommend it and will be back for more.
(P.S. who expects elevators in what is basically an historic house?)
