The Southgate is a good hotel , trying very hard to be a very good hotel. We didn't get off to a great start , our room was not ready until 14:35 when check in is from 14:00 hrs. The receptionist gave us a voucher for the bar and was most apologetic! The location of the hotel is great ,...

Wonderful hotel. Arrive early on Saturday morning. Hotel allowed us to park the car and as the room wasn't ready yet, we set off around Exeter shopping and sightseeing.The hotel text me once our room was available. We had a speedy check-in as I had already done this online the day before, another useful service. We had a classic room...

First impressions were very good as we entered the hotel. The staff were very friendly & there was a nice atmosphere. I had checked in on line & requested a privilege room preferably on the third floor with a cathedral view, we were given 247 on the second floor with a cathedral view which was fine. The room itself was...

Perfect hotel. Staff great, spotlessly clean, fabulous breakfast, pool and fitness centre well maintained and clean. There is nothing we didn't like. The housekeeping staff placed our kid's teddies in bed in funny positions each day! Comfy beds, sensible room temperature, plentiful hot water. Seriously, all good for a very good price. Very happy.

Nice quiet location behind the cathedral yet a short walk into town. We did not use the pool or spa but plenty of small children at breakfast looking very happy. Rooms were nice, good breakfast. Overall good.

On arrival, we were given a ground floor room with direct view on the parking lot, though the hotel was far from full. I asked for another room and though I got one upstairs, the interaction with staff wasn't very pleasant (I thought smiles were part of this job?). Room OK and nice swimming pool and jacuzzi.

Really enjoyed my short stay at The Mercure Hotel in Exeter. Facilities were very nice indeed. Very comfortable room, easy parking and excellent breakfast. Check in and check out was a breeze. Would definitely book again.

The food was excellent, the restaurant was lovely but most importantly the staff were absolutely amazing. They went above and beyond to ensure that we had a nice evening from the moment we arrived. The receptionist, the bar staff and the waitressing were all so lovely. Will highly recommend as the place to dine in Exeter.

Had New years here last year, pop in for coffee on many an occasion, always impressed with the staff and general welcome. The decor is modern, everything is spotless. Never fail to be amazed at the quality and value of the coffee.
