Owner & staff very welcoming & informative. Very short walk from city centre. Great period building with well furnished bedroom & nice En suite . Handy off street parking is available which was very useful. Wide choice of options for Breakfast which was good.

Spent one night there on visit to Exeter. I found Raffles to be a great stay. It's a large Victorian end of terrace with lots of stylish nineteenth century cachet, which I like. The room was comfortable, warm and quiet. Breakfast was copious with lots of choice. It's only a short walk from the city centre. I would stay there...

If I sat down to design my perfect B&B it would come out very like this. A big old Victorian house, nicely decorated and with an air of easy comfort. Good breakfast too. The location is good: handy for the centre (few minutes walk) without being in the crowds or too much traffic. Exeter Central station is nearby. Exeter can...

Visiting our daughter attending Exeter University and had a wonderful 9 day stay with Richard (and son) and Jane at Raffles Hotel!

Will return for sure and can't wait to hear...

Richard and his late wife transformed this well-constructed Duplex into marvelous accommodations. Particularly quiet as he had replaced all of the original windows with triple-glazed ones. Prices are very reasonable. Cash only. Delicious breakfast. Wonderfully friendly housekeeper who manner reminds me of Daphne Moon on Frazier. :)

I wish I could review Raffles Hotel but due to a slight misunderstanding on the telephone about shower rooms being called bathrooms, my experience of the host was one of rudeness so I had no option but to cancel the week that I had booked. Pity, as I generally get on rather well with the staff in the many hotels...
