Fantastic food, real value for money. On site parking, rooms ok, decor a bit tired looking. Staff brilliant and cannot fault. Only real problem was we were given a garden room and the noise from the near by nightclub disturbed our sleep.

St Olaves is a wonderful oasis. A magical place which is the most perfect hotel just off the main town in Exeter. The proprietor Simon ensures the customer service is first class. Breakfast is freshly cooked with locally supplied produce. I was fortunate to stay in room 1 which is usually reserved for weddings. What an exquisite room with very... More

We first stayed at St Olaves several years ago and were amazed that such a peaceful hotel could exist so close to the centre of Exeter. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the staff could not be more friendly and helpful. It's the perfect place to relax and it has become a regular feature of our holidays in SW... More

We started holidaying in Cornwall 12 years ago and as we live in Hertfordshire decided to break the journey with an overnight stay in Exeter. I found St. Olaves on the internet and we enjoyed the experience so much we have come twice a year every year ever since. It has been part of our holiday that we wouldn't want... More

Booked for a party of 13 for my sisters hen do. From the beginning the communication from the hotel was minimal, no confirmation was sent through etc. I phoned up to ask if it would be possible to have a room in which the hens could congregate, for quizzes etc. I was told this would be no problem as there...

At a time when hotels from Dubai to Los Angeles all seem much the same, this one is different and has real character. We found the hotel to be beautiful in its style and fashion and the service to be excellent. We can very strongly recommend it. (Prof.) Frederick Toates (Dr.) Olga Coschug-Toates

Beautiful bedroom, fantastic staff, brilliant breakfast, town centre parking. Within 5 minutes walk to Exeter Cathedral. I cannot praise this fabulous hotel highly enough. It was just perfect. The range of shopping in Exeter was a pleasant surprise along with quaint old alleys and attractive boutiques, restaurants, museums and pubs with the area around the cathedral as a star attraction...
