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

Stayed here several times and the rib eye steak was so good I had it nearly every night, superb. Hotel was good, parking could be a little temperamental and tight depending on what functions were on, but made very welcome, felt very homely whilst away on business which was nice. Good location for centre of town and surrounding areas.

The room was pretty good and afforded a decent night's sleep. The layout was much like that of a Premier Inn (I don't mean that derogatively) with an open wardrobe, desk with chair, separate lounge chair and small table - basically, all a business traveller needs for a night or two. Free WiFi. The bathroom was plain but nicely decorated,... More

The room was clean, tidy and comfortable. The bathroom was very nicely put together. The curtains were good and thick and didn't let any light in. So I had a good nights sleep. The room I stayed in had 3 single beds. 2 tea cups. 8 milk cartons. And 1 packet of 3 biscuits. All of which seemed a bit... More

Stayed at Buckerell Lodge for two nights. Found the service very poor, as was the food. Our friends had a ground floor room, small, which we called the dungeon. The weather was hot and the room was unbearably stiffling, with a musty, damp smell. Our room was a little better on the second floor with a four poster bed, just... More

Dear Jayne, thanks for your review. I'm pleased you enjoyed having drinks in our wonderful gardens. I know it was very hot whilst you and your tour companions stayed with us and I hope this didn't detract too much from enjoying our facilities. More

I stayed here for 2 weeks during a course for work and I have to say I was very impressed by the staff and the service they offered. The only slight negative I have was that the quality of the food was inconsistent. It was never bad but some days, usually on a Tuesday, it wasn't as good as usual... More

We came across the Buckerell Lodge Hotel on our entry to Exeter and having had a harrowing experience finding a B+B in the area during the last week, we immediately booked the room, although it was a little pricey in comparison to B+Bs. The room was well appointed and clean. We were received well by the desk clerk. The grounds... More

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.

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
