Did not stay at the hotel merely went for lunch. When we arrived only two people eating and two more arrived at about the same time as us. The staff member who greeted us was surly, the waitress was very pleasant but over the top friendly. Main meal was very slow arriving! My friend asked for steak medium - it... More

We stayed 1 night in a superior room on a dinner bed and breakfast stay. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful. Before we arrived I rang and asked if we could check in early, we were able to check in by 12, really appreciated after a very early start. We had a room on the front, no... More

When I first arrived at the hotel I was unsure as to whether I would like it. It had a hi tech modern feel to it . They hand you an iPad at reception which offers you info on the hotel facilities. The bedroom had a wooden floor and was of adequate size and thoughtfully designed with plenty of plugs... More

A lovely sunny day in Exter and we decided to call at The Magdalen for drinks. When outside you can hear the traffic but given the location that is, I think, acceptable. We found seats on the terrace, we could also have chosen deck chairs on the lawn too, and just soaked up the sun and the lovely setting. We... More

On arriving at the hotel we were a little surprised to be presented with an iPad which would tell us all we needed to know. All very modern and boded well - if you like that sort of thing. There were a lot of pluses. We enjoyed the food. They had noted our request for a quiet room and put... More

I stayed in The Magdalen Chapter only for a night but the experience was very enjoyable. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was clean and stylish. The rooms were small, a comment I have noticed others making, but in my opinion, it was enough space for just one person in a room. The room itself was also extremely... More

I took my 18 year old daughter for a twilight package spa break and the whole experience was excellent. The quality of the design and fittings of the hotel is impressive, as is the well chosen art that hangs on the walls and even acts as the reception desk - this hotel is stylish and very well considered, our standard...

Very quirky reception, loved the whole atmosphere of the place, the room I stayed in was at the top of the building, great views and a very comfortable bed. We were staying for a University open day. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent with great service and a number of English wines! The only downside was a disappointing breakfast buffet... More

My husband and I stayed here as a romantic getaway from our 2 year old, we live in exeter so have been to the bar before but were really looking forward to experiencing the 'whole package'. The downstairs is lovely, the garden really peaceful and the bar comfy and a spacious terrace. The staff are not the quickest, we were... More

Had a business trip to ashcombe, and with the prospect of dingey hotels, I decided to stay in Exeter at the Magdalen Chapter. Bad news... parking isn't great. That's the entire of the 'cons' out of the way, let's get into the 'pros'. The restaurant is fantastic. Great food, reasonably priced. Dinner for 2, 3 courses from the a la... More
