Close to the town centre, free wifi and a very nice breakfast. On the down side the room smelled a bit musty, the blankets on the bed are a bit yesteryear and having to open the window with a screwdriver seemed a bit odd. Overall not a bad B&B, 3.5/5 and good for the price. I would consider staying again... More

I stayed here in March 2013 for a doctoral studies weekend at exeter. The room was simple but had everything one could need. It was very close to the school of education and in walking distance to Central exeter. The breakfast in the morning was absolutely wonderful and the host was very helpful during my stay.

We have just returned from a very enjoyable stay at The Edwardian. We received a very warm welcome which continued throughout our visit. We had a very spacious room on the top floor which included en suite and tea and coffee making facilities. Breakfast was enjoyable with a wide selection of choice. Location is excellent just five minutes walk from... More

The Edwardian is located on a very busy street. The day we arrived there, the owners were in the middle of some construction. It did not affect the two days we spent there. Our hosts were very nice. We arrived a little early as we were a little nervous to find it. We had to park in a car park... More

I went to the Edwardian on a business trip and e-mailed them beforehand requesting a quiet room as I needed to be rested for a busy working day. When i arrived I was shown to a very lovely room on the second floor. There was a lot of decorating work going on on the premises but it did not affect... More

Firstly i feel people have to remember this is not a chain where the standard is consistent this is a family run hotel and therefore more intimate and friendly than maybe some people are used to. I had a weekend course and was looking for somewhere near to the Jury's Inn (where my course was) without paying the 95 for... More

On arrival, there was no answer at the door. I telephoned the hotel after which the owner came to the door. My room was an average size, however the sink was separate from the bathroom and on the other side on the room. Shower was not very powerful. The room had no desk or chair. Although there were many sheets... More

Stayed for 2 nights whilst visiting my son at the University. He lives 2 minutes down the road on foot, that is why I chose the location. Could have stayed at the Jurys Inn for a little less but have a personal policy of using and promoting independent/private businesses. Was really pleased that I did as my welcome was friendly,...

We stayed here a few nights to attend a wedding. The location is perfect, especially for anyone arriving from the coach station, but Exeter Central is also only about 20 mins walk away. It's literally around the corner from the Jury's Inn so if you're torn between that and this place, I'd take this one. Free wifi, very comfortable bed... More

Visited this guesthouse in August for a weekend break in Exeter. There are currently some works going on, plastering etc, which caused no problems during our stay. It is very much like a traditional B&B, and whilst not my taste with regard to decor and ornaments etc, added to the charm of the place! Room was good, top floor with... More
