Stayed here in room 19 right at the top of the house. Very clean but basic room with little space. The bed was comfortable but creaked so badly it woke me a couple of times in the night. Breakfast was one of the best I've ever had and the staff were very polite, attentive and friendly. Overall happy but please...

Nice room, good full English breakfast and very serviceminded and polite staff. The hotel is 5 min. walk from the train station and the same distance to the centre of Exeter. We really enjoyed our stay and will highly recommend Telstar to other visitors

We searched for a 'dog friendly' place to stay as we were traveling with our Cocker Spaniel. This place looked too nice for a dog friendly hotel so I checked first. We were had a very friendly and efficient welcome and we're shown the room - we were not disappointed ! It was beautifully presented and it was evident each...

Very accommodating owner/staff very willing to change rooms if available. Also, due to an anticipated early Saturday morning start was offered some takeaway sandwiches instead of breakfast which was good. Then, even after revising our departure time that meant we could have at least some breakfast we were still given the sandwiches to eat later. That's what I call excellent...

My partner and I stayed here for a night while we were down to watch Ulster vs Exeter Chiefs on the Sunday (sadly we lost). What a beautiful building and fantastic staff! The breakfast was probably THE best I've ever eaten, all the better for being locally sourced and produced. The sausages, in particular were outstanding. Really genuinely faultless, and...

We booked this hotel for it's location and offer of a family room. It is very well placed for the town centre, train station and university. It was an easy check in with the lovely receptionist. It is really cute. A little courtyard with parking at the rear, and a little garden to catch the last of the rays. We...

My son is attending the University so went to spend a few days to see how he has settled in. I caught the train from Paddington and got off at Exeter St David. This is the closer station. You exit the station, go up the walking alley (it truly is up so great workout with luggage), turn left on St...
