This is the third time we've been there and as always the service is good and the rooms excellent. Restaurant always good. We were there over valentines weekend and despite being busy, the staff were still attentive.

Only stayed here for the one night and got it incredibly cheap as there was a wedding on (would have been nice to know this in advance) but only really used this as a place to stay when visiting family. Great and easy to find localisation with free parking. The staff on arrival were great and had even got the... More

We had a lovely stay, the room was spotless and the bed was really comfortable. We would definitely stay there again. The location was great, both for walking into Exeter and for getting the bus into Topsham

Only snag was no complementary water which i thought was a little odd. Breakfast is charged separately and at £10 definitely not worth the money, all over cooked and a... More

We only called fir a coffee and clearly visited on a very quiet morning - no other customers - staff were friendly and welcoming and they serve a nice cup of coffee. Shame about the TV in the bar playing the Jeremy Kyle show.

Very good value weekend break. One or two little details regarding maintenance but minor. Room was comfortable and well equiped, food was excellent but the weekend was made by the staff who were brilliant.

To be honest I wouldn't normally have picked a hotel like this, we usually go for something more secluded and historical for a social break, but we were attending a family funeral and it fit the bill for location and availability. It did strike me as a perfect hotel for the business person or for corporate events but did lack... More
