We recently organised a friend's birthday at the hotel which included a champagne reception and two or three course meal. The staff were efficient, friendly and eager to please and it is always a pleasure to deal with the hotel when organising any event. I have been using them for nearly six years now for conference dinners, university society balls... More

Ignore the pool and gym rating, as they do not exist, but this should not deter the arrivals of tired couples to an as affordable piece of luxury and relaxation, rest in the lounge or garden and just soak it up. Eggs Benedict for breakfast hot and delicious.

We stayed here regularly when visiting one of our children at the University. We have not visited for a while as child has graduated. On our return, we had a very warm welcome, which was nice and had room 7. The bed was extremely comfortable, one of the best I have slept in for a while in the UK. Yes,... More

We'd trundled into Exeter without either a booking or any previous plan so once into the city, we saw the brown heritage accommodation sign and drove straight in. A bright and helpful receptionist was happy to let us have a double room with ensuite and we accepted without even checking out the room. The rate included breakfast. Like many older... More

Stayed here last night for work as am deciding which hotel to use in Exeter for my regular work trips - I'm afraid it will not be this one. Firstly however the good points - the location is excellent; you are right in the middle of town & would be able to access any central location in minutes. The bed... More

We spent a night here on the way to the Plymouth ferry. The hotel is ideally situated for the city centre and staff were helpful and friendly. Our room (no. 4) was beautiful, with an excellent bed and pretty sitting area. The walled garden makes a lovely setting for the Georgian building. Breakfast was quite good - I'd recommend the...

What a lovely hotel. Tucked away just off the main street in Exeter, St. Olaves is a Georgian gem. We stayed two nights as part of our tour in Devon/Cornwall & would recommend it to anyone. Room was spacious, beds/pillows very comfy, bathroom clean & plumbing worked well (lots of hot water & the toilet flushed well). Breakfast was very... More

Had an child free weekend and decided to return to Exeter, so randomly booked this little hotel - an unexpected little gem! The hotel is just lovely, based in a little courtyard just off the main street, so only minutes to walk to great shopping and eating. It is a really quaint hotel, lots of features and a beautiful winding... More
