My husband and I stayed in this hotel Friday and Saturday night. The receptionist did a very function but not personal job. Our room no 18 was nicely decorated and clean, but it was above the function room roof so there was no view except of the extractor fan. The room was extremely hot even though I had the window...

I stayed here on a business visit to Exeter. I wasn't expecting much after previous reviews but it was pretty good. Check in was quick and efficient. Wifi was good. The room was large, spotless, good TV channels, comfy bed. I ate in the bar late back and the meal was very good, bar staff helpful. Nothing wrong with place.... More

We (wife and I) stayed two nights in September. Room was old and smelly. Glass bathtub partition had fungus at bottom,bedcover had holes (moths?), broken lightbulb, torn curtain, broken cover of washbasin light. We complained asking one night refund. Turned down as we had not booked directly but through third party. Lame excuse! Also dirty and tattered chairs in the... More

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.

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
