Spent one night at the telstar hotel recently and found it very nice.

We spent two nights here in November. Hotel is in a perfect position for university, station and town centre.

Parking is pretty tricky as they are very tight for...

Great choice of cereals, fruits, juices, homemade jams (Pam's strawberry is particularly scrummy!) and, of...

Nothing to complian about. Everything was amazing. Rooms were perfect: wide, clean and very nice. All the staff are so lovely and friendly. Breakfast was very good and cheapy. The hotel got a good position and you can reach the city centre in less than 10 minute on foot. I really raccomand it.

Top class staff could not be more helpful. Clean rooms. Breakfast cooked freshly fresh made bread daily. Ideal location free parking and walking distance to city centre. Lots of information provided by hotel for local attractions. Would stay again.

My friends and I shared a family room for a weekend trip to Exeter. It was excellent value at £25 each (4 people in the room so £100 total) and £5 for a full English breakfast pp. Comfy bed, great shower and a very pleasant room. We had a great stay thank you!

Booked a single ensure room£40 for b&b parking and wifi. Very friendly staff particularly Veronika I was made to feel very welcome. Room was small but had everything I needed, clean and freshly painted. Breakfast was amazing, choice of cereals, yogurt, cooked breakfast followed by homemade cinnamon and radon toast with homemade jam
