I was a last minute decision but the only hotel available for two nights. I wanted to be in Exmouth so there was little choice. We do not usually use two? star hotels but needs must. The Cavendish is probably of Victorian origin with much of the original decor. The greeting from the receptionist put us off straight away.( "the rooms's not ready you will have to come back") The room was clean and of good size, the bed comfortable. The 'flat screen' T.V. as in the advert details, was a fourteen inch portable, when I mentioned this at rception I was met with a condecending "oh really I will look into it". nothing changed. The free wi fi in the room, again as advertised, was not available. Breakfast was interesting. The staff were cheerful and polite and efficient. From ordering to serving a full cooked breakfast was timed t a recording breaking one minute. Either they have the fastest chef in the world or ,I suspect ,a very large warming tray. We stuck to cereal and toast and coffee, again served in record time. Having heard a number of residents moan amongst themselves about the quality and temperature of the evening meal, we ate out. We were awakened at 7 am both mornings by the sound of luggage beng dragged across the frontage to be loaded into a waiting coach. Al in all an experience not to be repeated. I would imagine that most of the hotels clientl are of the more mature age group and that the hotel would not be suitable to the more decerning traveler or a fmily with children. The location is ideal, right on the sea front and only a short walk fom the shoppng centre which has a variety of the usual seaside shops and eateries. I pid for what I expected and got less. Fortunately the weather was good and I did what I went for. Would I recommend the hotel ? no Would I use it again? no. Sorry Cavendish Lack lustre,unexciting forgetable.
