To get the negative over first - the twin room really was tiny! REALLY tiny. Barely room to walk round beds and suitcases. BUT - in mitigation - the hotel was clean and bright, beds were comfortable, traffic noise was no problem and the shower was great. Good breakfast, helpful staff, brilliant position to access Exeter and with parking nearby.... More

Myself and my sisters and nieces and a friend all stayed the night celebrating my hen do. The hotel itself had no off street parking but when we checked in we were given a permit to park on the road outside so no worries there. Once inside the rooms were very clean and tidy and the staff very friendly. The... More

Small rooms with all you need ,rooms on top floor are up a lot of flights of narrow stairs .More b&b than Hotel .Breakfast area is small and would not suit large groups. Location is good, but if on top floor seagulls can be very noisy from very early in the morning as not much sound proofing

An OK hotel in a convenient location, check-in was friendly and polite, the rooms are not huge and storage space is tiny, but they have all you need and are comfortable. As noted in other reviews the hotel is close to a main road and has no parking but we managed to park locally. The only negative was being told... More

After my other Exeter booking fell through, I managed to secure a last-minute room here. I wasn't expecting much after I read the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. Positives: - location: excellent, only a few minutes walk from Exeter Central station and around 10min to centre of Exeter and the Cathedral - friendly helpful staff - nice clean simple... More

I stayed here for two weeks whilst working in the area. My room (no. 18) was ideal, the bed was really comfortable and the room was cleaned every day. There was a TV in the room (although I didn't use it) and a kettle with tea and coffee. The wifi was excellent throughout the hotel. It is in a fantastic... More

First impression of the hotel was quite nice. The hotel is on a busy road so if you are staying at the front it can be rather noisy. There is no car park for the hotel so if your lucky enough to get a parking space on the front like we did the hotel will give you a permit to... More

10 minutes walk from city centre, 20 from university campus. Parking not a problem in local streets with permit. Friendly, competent manager. I didn't find the decor dated but our twin room - no 14 - was the smallest I've ever seen at approx 11 ft by 7.5 plus a small alcove containing a clothes cupboard. The small bathroom was... More

I stayed here for just one night. It's in a beautiful Georgian style home and more like a B&B, most of the rooms are upstairs. There isn't an lift, so don't come with heavy luggage that you need a porter to take your bags to your room. The staff will help though if needed. My room was cozy and clean.... More
