We booked two nights at the Globe on a tour of the West Country. Topsham is a delightful place to explore with much fascinating history, as well as a beautiful location. The Globe did not disappoint. It has a friendly relaxed atmosphere, good food, good beer, comfortable rooms. The only real downside is the impossibility of close parking. I ended... More

Never been to the Exeter/Exmouth area before. Found The Globe online and booked for 1night for myself and sisters visiting from Australia - we all thought what a great find! Rooms clean and very well appointed with soothing decor and clean modern shower room ensuite. Dinner was delicious and not unreasonably priced (the pork belly with cheeks and fondant potato... More

Stayed a couple of nights in one of the courtyard rooms at the back. These appear to have been recently built/ renovated and ours was in excellent condition. Vi-Spring beds a treat, power showers and decent sized room and ensuite. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We also ate one evening in the restaurant, also enjoyable and perfectly located for local... More

Why surprisngly good? The hotel is owned by the St Austell Breweries Group and sometimes the absence of an independent owner with skin in the game can mean a slippage of standards and skills. My wife and I have just spent 3 nights at the Globe and we cannot praise it highly enough. From the truly delightful welcome by the... More

Stayed here for the weekend. The staff were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. We ate in the hotel both nights, the food and service was excellent. You do need book your table in advance due to the popularity of the restaurant. We are planning our next trip already!

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent visit for lunch. We were very disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy your lunch on this occasion. The scallops with pancetta and curried cauliflower puree can be served as either a starter or a main course portion. On investigation it appears that you received a starter portion in error rather...

Stayed for one night whilst visiting friends and enjoying the local area. Friendly, good value, good atmosphere and delicious dinner and breakfast. Will return in the future. Topsham is a lovely little town - worth exploring and some great walks; An ideal location for surrounding areas in East Devon and the city of Exeter.

We stayed here overnight as we were breaking an onward journey. The rooms were comfortable and well thought out with superb (and very clean) bathrooms. An excellent supply of tea (plenty of options to suit all tastes) and coffee and with enough things in the room to make it homely but leaving enough space for personal items. We had a... More

This was our second visit to the Globe for lunch on Saturday and both times were memorable for terrific food and service plus lovely atmosphere in the bar and restaurant. We chose the homemade hamburger and the salmon fillet. Both were beautifully presented and tasted wonderful, especially the salmon which was exceptional quality with ratatouille to match and, piece de... More
