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

Stay here for daughter's graduation. I was glad to get home after this nightmare. The room needs a serious cash input , very tatty and worn. We didn't sleep because of the noise in the street. The breakfast was well rank.

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.
