The Globe in Topsham is an excellent, characterful country pub hotel just a short distance from Exeter. I used this as an alternative to the usual big brand hotels for a quick overnight stay and was delighted by the personal service, good quality food and choice of interesting beers on offer. It's a little bit off the beaten track, compared... More

This was our second visit to the Globe and were a little disappointed this time. We arrived for an agreed room inside and were offered a room in the courtyard. We insisted on a inside room and viewed one which had two single beds with a double mattress placed on top. The single beds were not secured together, so when... More

I was very sorry to hear you were disappointed with your recent visit and I have investigated the points you have raised. The on line booking confirmation stated an arrival time and a request for breakfast only. A later telephone conversation confirmed a request for disabled parking. We do request that people using our car park leave their registrations at... More

My friend and I stayed overnight at the Globe as we wanted something out of Exeter centre but within easy reach. I requested a room at the back of the pub in the courtyard area in the hope that this would be quiet. It certainly was peaceful and the room was cosy and clean with great bathroom and shower facilities.... More

We stayed with a group of 8 friends last weekend and had a fab time. Excellent value for money, clean & spacious rooms, great food (especially the full English breakfast) and a warm, welcoming, lively atmosphere in the bar. Staff very friendly and a great base for walks or just chilling out.

I stayed on business running a training event with a group of 10. My room in the main building was extremely cosy, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The evening meal was first class and the choice at breakfast was good from the continental spread to a beautifully presented full English. I thought that this accommodation option, somewhere between the chains... More

Most genuine friendly staff I've experienced in years. Very clean room with lovely decor and toiletries. Food is super and reasonable in a great village location. Was here on business but would also love to come back on leisure. Highly recommendable.

We visited the Globe as a group following a Christmas lunch nearby and I have to say that it was a really nice comfortable place for a drink and a chat sitting next to a nice open fire in great surroundings. It is an old building full of atmosphere but very well maintained, in keeping with its history. The choice... More

We stayed two nights here in a courtyard room (#11). We chose The Globe as we had two spaniels. Our room was very comfortable. Often dog owners get shoved into the smallest room but this was large with a huge comfortable bed. Shower was first class -though oddly no towel rails. Both breakfast and dinner were terrific and service very... More

I stayed for one night on a business trip and will stay here again when in the area. The staff for hotel, bar & restaurant were helpful but not intrusive. Room was comfortable, quiet and the food was very good.
