A lovely hotel set in really lovely gardens. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The breakfast was tasty and the rooms clean though a little dated. Even though the hotel was in the middle of the city it certainly didn't feel that way. The grounds are really private, sunny and well tended. Really pleasant to sit in the sunshine... More

Stayed at this Hotel on a Business trip and wasn't expecting too much. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Rooms are well appointed, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The food was also good and I had an enjoyable stay. There is also a lovely garden with seating if you get the weather. The Hotel is really close to all the main routes... More

Stayed in this hotel on a Friday night. Lovely well looked after garden. Staff were very friendly and breakfast was nice, although value for money at £10 may be a little too high. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. The city centre is walkable from the hotel on a nice day, and you can walk to the Quay which is very... More

Pleasant staff, rooms are great and comfortable and the food was amazing. Two issues the wi-if kept dropping in and out and the shower in room 17 is more like a dripping tap than a shower. I'm very pleased with this great find. Will be back again when working in the area

Visited this hotel for an Afternoon Tea. It is like a Country House Hotel within the 'Greater Exeter' area. If the weather had been better we could have had our Afternoon Tea in the grounds which would have been superb but unfortunately it was not good enough. Accordingly, it was served in the Hotel Bar which was very busy due... More

I spent two nights here - one with a colleague and one alone. It was a nice stay - very quite in an enormous bed. Breakfast was good (service was a little slow on the second morning, when it was busier), I had an evening meal too - which was very tasty, although the menu is very limited. There was... More

My wife and I celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary here with 30 friends and relations. We wanted an informal Sunday Lunch and made arrangements with Erika (event manager) beforehand who was most helpful with the booking, even changing the menu for us and because of the numbers we had the large function room all to ourselves. We did have Sunday... More

We paid £195 for B&B on 15 July and £175 for B&B on 16 July. One would expect luxury and amenities commensurate with this price, but they were not available at The Buckerell Lodge. I would like to know how this cost is justified. There is parking and it is 1 mile from the city centre, but not worth these... More

Dear guest, thanks for your review. When booking in advance; the published rates are the 'best available rates' at that time and are pre-set according to the demand for rooms in the immediate area on those dates. Graduation week at Exeter University is the busiest week of the year for all Exeter hotels and this is reflected in their room... More
