The Buckerell Lodge Hotel is shown on many websites as 4* and the cost of an overnight stay is most definitely in line with this. We found the hotel very expensive for what it offers. It is very tired, there is very little if any sound proofing between rooms and floors and therefore a good nights sleep is rare. The... More

We stayed here for two nights as a gift from our son. The staff were cheerful and friendly. There was a nice relaxed atmosphere throughout the Hotel. Food was good, comfortable room, what more could you ask. I would like to thank everyone at the hotel for making our short stay something special.

Dear Raving Eddie, thanks for your review. I'm sorry that your stay here and at other Exeter hotels' was not the same as a holiday inn. Clearly our relaxed and informal atmosphere is not what you're looking for in a hotel and, even though we are going through some changes, the majority of our guests return for the friendly service...

Great place to stay. We had a two night B&B + Evening Meal Present from No 1 daughter as a Christmas present so booked the weekend away but then realised that no 2 daughter had no one to look after our Grandson for the Tuesday morning so rang the hotel and they were great! No problem with the extra guest... More

We recently enjoyed a 2 night stay at this hotel. Our room was very clean and comfortable, with a nice view of the well maintained grounds. The staff were very friendly and helpful - particularly the young lad working behind the bar! We did have a slight problem concerning the room location, but this was dealt with quickly and efficiently... More

Enjoyed a 2 night break here that we used as a cycling base and exploration of Exeter. Nice spacious and clean room, good breakfast albeit the dinner was overpriced - the duck, pArticularly, was fatty and undercooked. But generally good.

The location is very good just a short distance from the city centre and the Quay. Nice spacious rooms and excellent food. Top class service at reasonable price. Decent breakfast spread and good conference facilities. What more can you want.

I was part of an Insight Tour in 2013 staying here for 2 nights. My room had mildew on the wall in the single room under the air conditioner. The room stank of damp and mould. When I went and complained to the reception, they couldn't have cared less. My whole tour inc the tour director saw it. I took... More

Hi Kerrie K, I see your visit was a year ago,... I'm sorry you were disappointed; however, I took over as GM last September and I can assure you that you would not find anything similar if you were to revisit us now.

I'm writing this on behalf of myself and my dad. We stayed in Exeter in July for a funeral. I personally had to stay at another hotel because the hotel was fully booked. As a family we booked one of the rooms for the wake. The bar staff and facilities were faultless. My dad tells me that the rooms were... More
