I stayed at this hotel whilst on business in the Exeter area. I arrived very late on a Monday night and the staff were helpful and friendly and mentioned the bar was serving drinks and snacks in case I wanted anything - I was so tired I just went to bed!

Over ninety quid seems to me like quite a lot to pay for a night in an airport hotel, but I guess Holiday Inn really only have the Premier Inn down the road for competition on the edge of Exeter. I should have checked out the prices in that Premier Inn but I forgot it was there, and as soon... More

I visited here twice for one night each in February/March 2014. Room was spacious and comfortable. I had breakfast the first time but it wasn't all that great so skipped the second time I stayed. Only real negative for me was the constant air con which blows onto the bed, I could stop it but it'd come on again about... More

Initially used as a stopover on our way to south Cornwall but we found it over the road from a Park and Ride. The hotel reception processed our booking in with a friendly and professional manner.

Great value for money, nice breakfast included cooked and continental , spotlessly clean room and bar open until late. Very helpful, friendly staff. Would stay again. Easy to get into Exeter on the park and ride bus. Free parking and next door to a pub with beer garden.

Perfectly located for the Exeter business parks near to the M5. The room was fine. The shower could have been more powerful. The fan in my room wasn't of the quality needed to take the steam out of the bathroom - shaving in such a steamy environment isn't great. Pizza only is served at the small bar (with an excellent...

I stayed here on business for one night. The hotel is modern and clean, and the staff were courteous and welcoming. There was a minor queue at reception on check in, but this was quickly dispersed when the guy behind the adjoining bar mucked in.

We stayed here for one night in March 2014 on our way down to Cornwall. Hotel is just off the M5 motorway and right opposite the Park and Ride. Rooms comfortable with air conditioning. Reception staff were helpful. The breakfast was fully stocked and included the normal breakfast spread.
