A nice hotel, rooms are good and the Sunday roast is excellent. Good central location everywhere in Exeter. You can park in the multi storey across the road for the whole weekend for £23 which is good for a weekends parking.

Lovely hotel & bar. Friendly staff. Nice, clean & comfy room. Excellent location. Good value. One problem was some of the cleaning staff chatting loudly right outside our room for ages, not impressed. Another problem was drunks outside but then again it is a pub. Would definitely stay again.

Super. Clean and comfortable. Staff all very accommodating. Excellent food and great beers. City Gate is on the way to the city centre from the station - ideal location. Have stayed Friday nights and the atmosphere in the pub is very friendly. FABULOUS BREAKFAST, with an excellent pot of tea after a good night's sleep. Does what it says on... More

I stayed here while I visited my Sister who lives in Exeter. It was a great little hotel stay with lots of warm charm and the courtyard bar was a great place to catch up over several glasses of white.

City Gate Hotel Exeter. We booked this hotel because of the positive reviews and were not disappointed. It is a decent hotel close to city centre offering good value for money. Our room was kept to a high standard and had good quality bedding and towels. There was a good cooked breakfast with interesting menu choices. The staff were friendly... More

We had a wonderful stay at he City Gate. The staff are very friendly and our bedroom was huge with a 6ft wide bed! We would highly recommend this as its a very short walk from all the main shops. We had dinner at the hotel last night and the food was good. There was a jazz band on Friday... More

There is a lovely beer garden to meet up in, and a good selection of beers and drinks. Drinks prices were higher than in some of the other pubs in town but... More
