Very helpful and friendly service. They made my husbands birthday special by decorating the room for us. The breakfast was delicious, especially the local bacon and sausage. Good location - midway between main Exeter St Davids station and the City centre.

I love the Bendene very much. The place is tide, beautiful, and clean. The people here are so nice, polite and active like honeybees. I am so sorry that I am leaving within minutes.

The Good: Location...near some restaurants and shops. Room and bathroom were clean. Beds were reasonably comfortable. Love the blankets...much better than a duvet. Breakfast choices. They did allow us to check in 45 minutes early and they also allowed us a bit of late check-out from their regular 10:00 am. The Bad: Worst WiFi we've had on our three-month long... More

I can see how some reviewers have come to the conclusion that the reception can be cool, or not so welcoming, but to be honest, I found that if you ask politely, and just appreciate the work pressures at that moment, the service is top notch! This is a very clean, comfortable hotel, in a fantastic location offering great facilities... More

I stayed in a single room when in Exeter for work. It is a great location, between the station and the town centre, 10 minutes from one, 5 minutes from the other. The room was small but good for the usual B&B single and it was comfortable and well kept. The shared bathroom was clean and perfectly fine. Breakfast was... More

Stayed for 5 nights on business. Welcome was as has been described on here previously. Met by a cold woman who asked me name very bluntly and then very sternly proceeded to hand me key, tell me room number and that breakfast was at 7.30am. No customer service at all, no how was your trip or how are you or... More

I stayed in The Bendene for the weekend and was in a single room, yes it was small but it had everything in it that I needed and was reasonably priced. The breakfast was very good and the B and B is centrally located, about five minutes walk to the centre of Exeter, Samantha was the housekeeper that I saw... More

I stayed for two nights on business. The room was really nice, better than what I'd expected. Yes the landlady is curt but hey. Breakfast was cooked to order quite fast and was tasty. Will go again. Also the location is excellent.

Stayed for 2 nights and definitely recommend it. Some of the staff very pleasant but another was a little less interactive and business-like. Our room was lovely with a great view and nice to have an en suite but not all rooms are fitted with one.

Not impressed with this 4 star accommodation. Very poor customer service! Frosty welcome! Room 14 which was in the lift was spacious and clean but for a 4 star hotel I would have expected a lot better quality furniture and fittings! The bed was really uncomfortable with cheap pillows and a horrible blanket! There was towels in our room but... More
