We stayed in a room at the front of hotel which over looks a car park, very noisy early hours of the morning. Would recommend asking for a room at the back. If you're looking for a hotel that takes dogs in Exeter this is ideal.

On arrival I saw a beautiful hotel with a lovely court yard. I arrived at 2230hrs which wasnt a problem for the staff. My room wasnt bad. It had a fairly large bathroom compared to the bedroom size however all facilities you would expect. The best bit was the shortbread biscuits in the tin which I gladly enjoyed with a...

I stayed in room 16, which is at the front of the building on the main road. Negatives: (1) very noisy! Caused by a combination of road noise (the hotel is situated on the city's one way system), seagulls (that kick off around 4am) and drunk people leaving the nightclub a few doors down. I stayed for two nights and...

We stayed for one night, it is situated in the center so easy walk to the Cathedral and Quay and shops. Breakfast was lovely there is a good selection, we went for the West country breakfast of bacon eggs and beans with toast. We drank in the local pubs nearby, Rosie's in particular. The only thing missing was a hairdryer....

Positives: Great location in terms of the town center, restaurants and the Cathedral, which is indeed magnificent. If you are driving a car, St. Olaves also has off street parking in its courtyard. If you are coming in on the train, it is a 5-10 minute walk from the central rail station, but a 25 minutes UPHILL walk from the...

The hotel is central close to shops and restaurants. It's about a 5 minute walk to the cathedral and 10 to the river. The rooms are large and traditionally decorated and breakfast tasty. Staff were also very friendly and helpful.

Satisfactory accommodation right in the heart of the town, pleasant atmosphere, nice staff, easy walk to the cathedral and all the right places to eat, was okay as part of an organised tour, most probably wouldn't book it again, and had major issues with the laundry service being a day late!!

We have stayed here several times over the last 5 years, and each time we have been very happy. The staff are lovely, friendly and helpful. The owner Simon is great and we enjoyed meeting Martin who was extremely kind. This year we were lucky enough to have a sunny summer evening in which to wonder over the garden to...

Tucked away in an old courtyard with beautiful garden, trees and shrubs, this is a hidden gem, slap-bang in the centre of Exeter. Rooms are superb and delicious breakfast served in the smart Dining Room. Sharing the garden & courtyard is the Forn Tapas Bar & Restaurant, so you get the best of the "old & new" and although authentically...

Stayed for one night only. Nice old style hotel but a bit shabby in places. Room was small with the bed in the way when opening the door. It was also stuffy and I had to prop the window open with a book for air. Bathroom was a good size and electric shower powerful but it wouldn't stay centred so...
