My husband and I have had an hectic time the last 18months, so I booked to have a quiet weekend break for the both of us in June 2014. We travelled five hours from up north to get there, the grounds looked really good so we thought everything would be fine. We got to sleep on the Friday night only... More

Dear Allison, thanks for your review. I am sorry the fire alarms woke you and that the noise from the wedding party became an issue too. I wish you had said something at the time in order that it could have been resolved immediately. I do hope we will see you again at which time I am sure we will... More

This hotel is in a super location close to Exeter centre. You can walk into the city in 30 minutes or take bus from a nearby stop. Gardens are well maintained and colourful and the hotel itself is an attractive older style building. Atmosphere is relaxed and the staff were really friendly and helpful. One or two minor niggles didn't... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times in the past and my experiences were good enough to make me want to select it again for my recent one night stay. It was a little disappointing this time due to minor things, but they all add up. Firstly, my booking was made for me through my employer and is specifically... More

Dear BPC, thanks for your review. I'm sorry your specific room request wasn't passed on to us; had it been, we would have ensured you recieved it. With regard to the vegetarian menu/bar food issue; this particualr issue had already been brought to my attention and discussed with the restaurant manager who has been told (far too many times) to...

Loved the location as quieter - outside of the city centre. If you walk down the hill, there is a huge park that follows the river - great for jogging or walking. The grounds of the hotel are fabulous. The common areas and the rooms are a little "tired" and very warm, but it has that old elegance that you... More

Good Hotel Perfectly reasonable hotel easily located about a mile outside Exeter. Large free car park. A couple of problems with the room though. Cat prints over the bed sheets (from a local stray - closed window) meant that all the bedding needed to be changed, leak at the rear of the toilet cistern water pipe reported. Modern furnished room... More

you could walk into Exeter from here along the river, if not 5 minutes in the car. Lovely hotel and surrounding gardens. Breakfast was cooked freshly to order which was good, fresh fruit disappointing. The staff were very nice and helpful. Only down side on this hotel is the furniture in the bar area all looks dirty and shabby which... More
