Very small room and photos misleading. Breakfast period only 45 mins and was not offered breakfast after this period. Hotel says free parking on their site but was advised by hotel to park at a pay and display car park nearby. People not friendly.

The location of the Bendene hotel is excellent, a short walk from the town centre and yet in a quiet side street, so not bothered by traffic noise. Our room was small with two single beds, but the bath room was nice and spacious. We had a quiet room at the back overlooking the pool. Unfortunately the mattresses on the... More

This place is not value for money. The decor needs updating. Beds really really soft. Bath towel just about big enough to wrap around a small child. Hospitality tray in the room was not replenished and only enough shower gel, shampoo and conditioner for 1 person for 1 day. The breakfast was okay but cold, toast was cold and not... More

The Bendene offers great value for money,breakfast is also included in the price! The breakfast is always superb, freshly cooked and locally sourced, there is a vast breakfast menu... More

Just back from a three night stay. The Bendene was a good choice - a short walk from the centre but a quiet street. Very clean, the staff we met were very pleasant but as this is a straightforward b&b establishment we only saw someone at breakfast or when we rang the reception bell! Would recommend.

We expected far more for the price.Good location between the city center and the train stations. Easy walk to shopping, sights and restaurants. The breakfast was decent, most of the staff was very helpful, friendly and hard working. The kitchen was clean. The room was shabby, cluttered, tired and very out of date. The sheets had pen marks on them... More

I spent 4 days in the Bendene. I appreciated that feeling to be home. Everything is clean. While I was sharing the bathroom, i really appreciated that the bathroom were always cleaned. Very good choice for the breakfast which was generous. TV and Wifi available. The hotel is perfectly placed if you want to visit the downtown. Exeter is charming.... More

My daughter and I stayed one night in Exeter on our recent journey. The Bendene was known by the taxi driver (always a good sign) and the welcome was warm. I had not realised that we would be sharing bathroom facilities, but this was not a problem as it turned out. We had a nice room, and the breakfast was... More

This is a great value B&B with a very friendly lady who welcomed me upon arrival. I stayed for one night and chose The Bendene as I've stayed there before, I knew it was clean and offers a good breakfast. It's in a great location on the edge of the city and offers parking at he rear of the B&B.... More
