Visit this room and see response below, the restaurant was good but more variety needed with the food. Bedroom was the biggest disappointment and had put me off staying again as I didn't get a single night sleep due to the size of the bed.

We had a double birthday bash 12 in total, well done to the staff very good, food not so good manly the roast this was very poor indeed, roast potatoes poor, selection of veg also very poor, who wants sweet corn with a roast, if you had a better selection it wouldn't be so bad.

An evening was had with friends in the Carriages restaurant on a recent Saturday night. As always the staff were lovely and the food very good.

Stayed in this lovely hotel whilst in Exeter on business for a week. The single room was warm and comfortable and had all facilities including Sky TV and Wi-Fi. The hotel food and atmosphere was wonderful, the Light Bites in the bar are very satisfying. All the staff were very friendly & helpful.

Have been going to this hotel for many a good year. It never fails to impress. The staff are friendly, attentive and helpful. The food is pretty good as well. A good base for exploring the local area with plenty of onsite car parking. The restaurant is popular for those not staying at the hotel but the service remains good...

Great hotel, our room was fresh & new. Great facilities, excellent wifi. The hotel food and atmosphere was wonderful. The waiting staff were very friendly & helpful. Sadly the first contact at the Réservation desk was not that welcoming, no smile, no welcoming words.... BUT I would still highly recommend the hotel. Will be coming back.
