We find all the staff very welcoming and professional and the hotel public areas very attractive. The executive double room was well presented.

Booked at Saturday night stop in a very ordinary double room , costing £95 without a breakfast . Pricey for a no frills hotel really . Its close to a nice place to eat but again check out the prices as there are lots of great places to eat in Exeter .

Excellent hotel very surprised it only has 3 stars. Immaculate accommodation, superb dinner and breakfast. Very friendly helpful staff . I would recommend this hotel to my friends. My mother, my sister and I travelled down to the Medical Eye Clinic for my mother's cataract surgery and the hotel was suggested by them.
