This is one of the best hotels i have stayed in to date. It does have its negatives like any other but it is well worth a stay. The staff are really friendly and polite. The food is well made. On arrival o was upgraded because they were fairly empty. The rooms while not large are well decrated and are... More

We spent a lovely romantic night at the Magdalen. The room was lovely, spacious, well maintained with lots of nice luxury extras (free mini bar, nespresso machine and capsules, lovely toiletries). The staff were attentive and had an eye for detail. I had a great massage and we enjoyed the pool to ourselves for 40 minutes.

My wife and I have just come back from an absolutely blissful weekend, staying 2 nights at The Magdalen Chapter. The hotel is excellent, and we can both thoroughly recommend staying. The building has been stunningly transformed and is now a modern hotel, but all the modern trappings do not feel out of place, they compliment the original building features... More

Making no bones about it, this isn't a cheap hotel to stay at but it still offers a fantastic experience. + The rooms are really well finished in a contemporary manner and make good use of space. There's also a complimentary mini bar with some soft drinks and beer in that's restocked daily. + Staff are friendly and approachable. +... More

Thank you for your review and I am delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. We try to be very upfront about our parking situation as unfortunately there is very little we can do about this situation along with the majority of the hotels in the centre of Exeter. As mentioned previously on this forum I feel reasonably lucky that... More

Had a very nice 1-night stay here, in a 'Feature Room' which basically appeared to be a normal room with a nice large bath in it. Could have done with a little more wow (for the money, it wasn't cheap) but the bed was v.comfortable. TV was on the small side, a minor point maybe but when you pay a... More

Thank you for your recent review. The pool is indeed popular and I am glad you enjoyed it. All of our rooms are very different so perhaps if you stay with us again we could help you select another of our Feature rooms. It is important to us that children are made feel very welcome so I am delighted that... More

We spent Valentine day here and enjoyed every minute. The venue was so lovely, the pool was amazing and the treatment we received was wonderful. My only gripe was that the car park was far to small and we had to pay for parking which I feel should have been refunded since it cost us over £10, however, all in... More
