Really nice overnight stay.
Room was nice, big and very clean (could really do with aircon though)
1812 bar was lovely - Barman was excellent with his knowledge and making of cocktails.
All staff were very friendly
Breakfast was good quality.
Really enjoyable stay, only fault I can find is the lack of aircon but new this before we arrived and fans are available.
Would stay again

Enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Room required a bit of updating but could not really fault anything. Staff were very friendly and the breakfast/selection was one of the best.
Nice walk to beach or town. I would recommend this hotel as I had a very enjoyable experience.

Stayed Sunday to Friday. The room was quiet and comfortable. Housekeeping staff do an amazing job and the rooms and facilities were spotless!
Found my stay very relaxing and the staff were very accommodating, nothing was too much trouble.
Facilities are disabled friendly, having a lift, ramps where needed, a disabled toilet on ground level and showers with low access. I suggest you make your needs known on booking so the room meets fully with your requirements..
I stayed in a superior single room which had a double bed. The room was very spacious and the bed comfy.
What can I say about the food! The breakfast was help yourself continental and a cooked breakfast included which is cooked to order. Smoked haddock and poached egg was a nice surprise. All breakfast items were of good quality and of an ample quantity. The plates were huuuuuuuuge! Fresh ground coffee and tea available on request. Service was seamless and professional.
The evening menu has some special evenings where there is a £15 deal for three courses....... leap at it! The food was excellent fresh, tasty but I suggest you book because the 1812 restaurant is popular.
There are a number of lounges if the weather is not too good.
The hotel is about 5 mins from the beach and gardens. Cannot recommend enough!

Room Tip: There is a step up on the first floor; this is a quaint old building making any mobility needs know...

This was the first time we had stayed at the Royal Exeter hotel. We have stayed at previous hotels but wanted to try somewhere different. It was recommended to us by family.The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was lovely. A very close walk to the Beach and Town.

We loved our stay at the Royal Exeter. All the staff were outstanding and gave great customer service. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Our twin bedded room was clean and spacious with a large ensuite toilet / shower. The beds were very comfortable. The room was cleaned to an excellent standard every day. We loved the buffet breakfast. Great selection of cereals, fresh fruit, fruit juices, yoghurts, pastries, ham & cheese. In addition you could order porridge and cooked breakfasts. The hotel was in a great location, very close to the seafront, shops and gardens.

Traditional hotel in a good location for the beach, BIC and town, with a large free car park for residents. Very vlean and stylish throughout with a grandios staircase and comfortable, spacious bedrooms but very squeaky floors, which add to the charactor. Excellent breakfast and service. Two bars and a ginporium but little ale choice.
