We stayed there for one night as my husband was attending a conference, we paid £79 for bed and breakfast on booking.com. The room was ok, but the bathroom needing updating, the toilet didn't flush every time and the tiles were a little bit tired looking. The room was very noisy and very warm, we had to have the window... More

We stayed for one night and booked direct with the Hotel which we found to be the best room rate on the internet. This Hotel is in an excellent, easily accessible location and literally a two minute walk to the town centre. In fact, the furthest walk was to the quayside which is well worth a visit and that took... More

Really pleased with this hotel. We stayed only one night, but clean, spacious rooms, free wifi, great breakfast, and very friendly staff. Everything was as per the website, no hidden surprises, and pleased with decision to stay here. Wish we had more time to stay and explore.

We spent one night at this exeter hotel. Staff were hard working, polite and helpful. The hotel was clean, palatial and in my opinion value for money. Breakfast was excellent and leisurely. Situated right in the middle of town right across from the museum (which was fantastic).

The Rougemont Thistle in Exeter, England is surely one of the most popular in the city itself. Accommodations are excellent, albeit a bit small, staff is accommodating and friendly, and the price can be of value depending on booking details and deals. We recently spent 14 nights at the Rougemont and were very pleased. One of the best assets of... More

We arrived to the need to fight our way through some of the noisiest and most obnoxious wedding guests ever. Despite the noise the receptionist was the consummate professional even to the fact that when we returned from dinner at a local restaurant she even remembered my wifes name, unusual for a large hotel. As we were only likely to... More

Dear Kev_137 I am really sorry that you had to arrive to a lobby full of people - 100 people waiting to get into the ceremony room (or coming out) was a bit loud but I know it quietened down once they had got where they needed to be. It is nice to see that you enjoyed your stay and... More

The Hotel is in an excellent position right opposite Exeter Central Station and near the shops'museum and cathedral. We were very pleased with the room and food. Good value for money. The only fault was noise coming from the next room via the communicating doors. My tip bring earplugs or avoid a room with communicating doors. We had room 227

Dear Robert_SBrixham Thank you for kind comments about your recent stay - It is nice to see that you enjoyed the Hotel's location and nice clean rooms. We have just 5 sets of interconnecting rooms in the Hotel, which are normally great for families wanting to spread themselves over two rooms. I am sorry that the other room was noisey.... More

Had to work on 17 Aug in the city centre and live some distance away ... had trouble finding a hotel at the last minute and saw that this hotel had some rooms left. They were described as small doubles so I thought it was going to be an uncomfortable stay but as it was just one night, I went... More
