My husband and I spent three days at this lovely hotel, and if we are ever in Exeter again we intend to return to it. The staff was uniformly welcoming and helpful. At the Reception Desk we met Cinthia from Spain, a charming young lady, and her equally-charming colleagues, Lauren and Robert. The hotel's location was ideal. It is next... More

Excellent location near the cathedral and city centre. Modern rooms and comfy beds. Has own car parking but at £10 a day for residents this is annoying when you are paying £100 a night for a room. Stayed in a superior room which was on the small side. Usual tea and coffee with dreadful long life milk sachets - what... More

We booked in here on a special rate, which was no more than we had paid for a very down-at-heel B&B in the city a couple of months earlier. The Mercure is conveniently situated, not far from the cathedral, and even though it fronts onto a fairly busy junction, it is quiet. We ate in the restaurant on our first... More

This was a very nice and comfortable four star hotel in Exeter with 154 rooms. The hotel is centrally located and you can easily walk to the Cathedral. The hotel has an indoor pool and spa facility, although we were too busy touring to take advantage of it. The staff is welcoming and the food was vey good. They have... More

Stayed here for 3 nights earlier in January, whilst in Devon for a long weekend. I chose this hotel for the central location as well as the pool and spa facilities, and it lived up to expectations in all respects. The room was excellent, I slept well at night and there was a nice comfy chair for me to sit... More

We were very impressed with the lovely room we stayed in last night. Beautifully decorated with a huge bed and comfortable furnishings. The bathroom with modern walk in shower was amazing and the shower very powerful. A good nights sleep made us refreshed for our early start and the breakfast was excellent, especially the bread choice. We had dinner in... More

I stayed over en route to Truro, arriving Sunday afternoon. After a fast check-in, I was able to nip round the corner in time for the cathedral's Evensong - magnificently sung. I enjoyed a very nice dinner in the hotel's restaurant. The car parking was so convenient and the hotel very well situated for an easy drive out through St... More

Great location in centre of city - but you have to pay for the car park. Stayed one night on business - staff are very friendly, dinner was excellent, and the bedroom large - I think I got one of the refurbished bathrooms with walk-in shower, which worked well. Air conditioning also very good. Quiet bedroom. Didn't use the leisure... More

Funny little room with a funny little window but beautifully decorated! Delicious Fondue dip for starters and a friendly but almost intrusive room service waiter. Good pool and breakfast was just like every other breakfast in every other hotel... occasionally we get something different like Eggs Hollandaise or Florentine and sometime pancakes - lovely dining room and good enough service...
