An unusual hotel. Our room was comfortable with a bath in an alcove and lots of dark wood. Not much clothes space. We enjoyed the pool and the cocktails (we were elsewhere for dinner) and the breakfast. We were not so keen on the music in all the public areas, seemed particularly intrusive at breakfast. Note that there is very... More

Lovely hotel, received a great room in the old eye hospital. The rooms are decorated delightfully and the bed and linen is very comfortable. We slept like babies. Knocks spots off other hotels in Exeter that we have stayed in. The reception is modern and quirky. The bar is delightful with plenty of seating area. We did not dine in... More

There are not many hotels I will stay at In Exeter however this is one for business I really like. The biggest issue facing you here is parking and the last few times I have been unlucky. Only a few spaces in the hotel car park and no idea why but the big pay and display across the road has... More

A small fortune has clearly been spent of refurbishing what was once a eye hospital into what many city hotels should aspire to. High ceilings, modern decor, good food, swimming pool, landscaped grounds and welcoming staff all help to make ones stay enjoyable. Car parking is available in front of the hotel, & if full close by. The town is... More

The hotel interested me as it's in the old Exeter eye hospital. I watched it being revamped and turned into a hotel on my frequent visits to the area and puzzled how they could regenerate the old building. The downside is its a small site for a hotel. The upside is its location very close to the city centre. Inside... More

We stayed one night for Dinner, Bed and Breakfast and we were really well looked after. We loved the pool and the bar team were happy to bring cocktails down for us. Our room, the restaurant and breakfast in bed were also fabulous.

I stayed here with colleagues and pulled up outside to find the eight, or so, car parking places full. I unloaded the car and went to check in, very high tech with just a giant wood sculpture for a desk with a laptop on it. We checked in and were given our I pad and room key, apparently the I...

The was pretty well perfect. The excellent facilities and superb staff made the stay a pleasure. The room was spacious and well appointed. An iPad was provided for the duration of my stay which was a nice touch. Would recommend it wholeheartedly.

I stayed here with my 2 teenage daughters and was given a feature room with an extra bed, we were all comfortable and the room felt individual and interesting. The complementary mini bar was a nice touch and the bath looked gorgeous, shame we didn't have time to try it out. We did try out the cocktails on the terrace... More
