We had a wonderful stay visiting our daughter in Uni for her 21st birthday. The hotel is set in some lovely grounds and the staff are first rate. Although we didn't use the restaurant in the evening I can vouch that the full English breakfast is excellent.! I would only mention that we were unlucky to get a room with... More

We were staying the night of the feb 13th and I had previously made a reservation in the restaurant for the valentines menu which said it was for the nights of the 13th and 14th. We chose this hotel partly because we could get this deal on the menu of 3 course for £22. When we turned up to our... More

My wife and I only stayed 2 nights (bed only ) while visiting a daughter last Christmas who already had a houseful of relatives, so no space for us. Therefore I can`t comment on food. The staff were helpful and made us welcome. Although an old house the common areas were in good order and clean. Our room on the... More

We stayed a single night leading into Mothering Sunday. We were simply over the moon with room & service provided by all of the staff. The room was immaculate, clean as a pin and comfortably warm, the food was to die for. We would like to congratulate the management & staff on their professionalism. David & Yvonne Richardson

We have stayed at the Buckerell Lodge many times now. We are on their mailing list, and when one of their offers comes through we check the weather and go. Its easy to get too, located on one of the main routes into Exeter. Its set well back off the road in its own grounds so the traffic noise isn't... More

I am so used to single 'coffin' type rooms (I am a widow) - that when I was shown my room at Buckerell Lodge I was happily surprised. I had a 4' bed (large single, small double size). A full sized bathroom with bath and shower over. A lit recess for the tea making facility, wardrobe and dressing table. The... More

We have just enjoyed a four night stay at The Buckerell Lodge in Exeter. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the location was ideal as my Daughter was in the Royal Devon & Exeter having our Grandchild. The location is also convenient for going into Exeter City Centre and for travelling around to Exmouth and taking the coastal... More
