Great friendly budget hotel right in the centre. Lovely well furnished room (room 15) and spotlessly clean. The pub downstairs is a great place to eat and drink with a fantastic beer garden. Fantastic value for money and right in the heart of things. Tip: there is parking across the road that is free 6 pm to 8 am.

The beer is Youngs, the food is not 3663, quite tasty and fairly reasonably priced. The Sunday roasts are good and the atmosphere is better than most pubs. Given it is within 300m of the cathedral and not so well know to tourists it is worth a try, especially the beer garden in summer.

Fantastic venue run by efficient management and staff who stepped in at short notice to give a young couple a wonderful evening to remember. Would definitely recommend Also a buffet was provided which everyone enjoyed. The City Gate is full of character with a good atmosphere felt friendly and relaxed highly recommend a visit.

What a Fab place!! It's very near to town. The Staff were helpful and it was great value for money. Clean and well equipped rooms, although even after turning the heating off, the room was a little hot.. Food was good and service was fast.. lovely beer garden. We would stay again.

Carl and the team could not have been any more helpful or accommodating with our daughter's wedding. The service at breakfast and meal times was excellent. Bedrooms were clean and well equipped and all the staff made you feel nothing was to much trouble.

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.
