Spent the weekend in Exeter relaxing, with the help of the delightful St Olaves Hotel. Great location in the city centre with free parking (invaluable). The room was first class, all mod cons, the staff were helpful and the service superb. The breakfast was superb in a comfortable and relaxing environment, then, late morning simply relax in the lounge with... More

My wife and I stayed for one night while passing through the area. We'd last used this hotel about 18 years and two owners ago! It was as nice as we remembered it, with some improvements. The convenience of a car park in a city centre is well worth a good rating. The hotel is ideally situated for pottering about... More

If you like quirky, then you'll love this hotel. It is nothing like the photo on the website (a clever use of lens methinks) but it IS a tucked away gem of a place in the middle of Exeter city. There is a small quadrangle of ground for "first come first served" parking bays, that is in turn surrounded by... More

This hotel interior is very comfortable for a tourist stay of 2 nights. Breakfast is exceptionally good; I did not realize how good until I compared it to offerings at other B&B hotels. The hotel exterior is a bit shabby and there was construction to extend a section of the hotel, but that did not interfere with our stay. When... More

This is a perfect hotel. I have stayed in all hotels in exeter and this one is by far the best for me. I am 63 and so is my wife and this hotel has pretty much everything you need for a quite romantic break. Its perfect value for money and the staff really do bend over backwards to help... More

We booked a room for four nights and received the worst room in the Hotel. Not as shown on the lovely photographs. Other guests who booked for shorter time were given much better rooms. Our room was decorated black with black furniture. No drawer space. Bathroom down three very narrow, dark steps with light at the bottom and no hand... More

tucked away in an unattractive street close to the shops this run down hotel was once grand. In need of some care and attention the outside is a little shabby but not without charm. The bedroom was very nice, the shower a little warn and small. All in all ok. After a walk around lovely Exeter we settle down in... More

We stayed at this hotel for my daughters wedding. Very disappointed. "The family-run hotel is a listed Georgian town house with a cascading spiral staircase surrounded by a beautiful walled garden. The award-winning hotel and restaurant are a luxurious, tranquil home from home. Staff provide friendly, efficient service 24 hours a day. St Olaves offers the intimacy of a small... More

We had the pleasure of staying at St Olave's Hotel on Saturday night for a family reunion. There was 23 of us for dinner which everybody enjoyed - good food, generous portions, very nicely presented and great service from the staff. Twelve of us stayed overnight. The rooms were lovely. Yes there was noise from the street, but it was... More
