Being disabled you have to report to the station 20mins prior to departure then have to get a taxi all the way round to the opposite side of the track! However on a lighter note the staff are very helpful in the booking office in there.

Nice station, helpful staff. The lady told me which platform I needed and was kind and considerate. She pointed out where to go and was generally very pleasant and helpful.

Refurbishment was ongoing but the style and colours of the station were being kept, a real old fashioned welcoming station. we caught the train to Dawlish and went along the railway that runs along the coast, great experience

A lift would perfect it's a struggle to carry pushchairs up & over the bridge even though there is a road your able to walk over to get to the other platform it is still quite a trek. And not particular fair for disabled people either. Toilets... More

lovely old station but needs more staffing as often no toilets open and no food or help when you need it. pretty dirty, but good trains and pretty old station with easy walk into town.

this is a very weary place to visit. no one but undesirables about. safety is an issue here, along with disabled access and prices.
