Stayed at the woodbine with my daughter on the way to Cornwall. The b&b was spotless, welcoming and comfortable. Had a good nights sleep, breakfast was spot on and owner was very accommodating and personal. Would stay again - a little pearl in exeter and 5 minutes walk to the centre of town.

Pretty, bright and clean house with lovely, helpful owner, incredibly close to city centre for sightseeing, excellent value. Nice cotton bedding, comfortable bed. Quiet and calm, overlooking park (I watched the sunset from my window) with birds flying and singing outside. Possible to park on drive - or in city car park, very close to clock tower at end of...

It was very clean and cute with everything in excellent working order. I cannot say enough good things about the breakfast. Full English breakfast was delicious! The location is also perfect. It's easy walking distance to... More

Guest house situated in ideal position for city and railway stations. Very quiet location; no traffic noise whatsover. Spotlessly clean, and well-decorated. Comfortable bed, well-cooked and generous breakfast.

This guesthouse was very nice and vety quiet. My room was a good size and bed was comfortable. The breakfast was good with several choices (that you need to order the night before). The owner was friendly. It is located close to Exeter central station and 10-15 mins walk from the cathedral. A few things to mention though. Firstly, I... More

Our stay at Woodbine Guesthouse was very pleasant. The room was emaculate and very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was nice but portion size a bit too small. It is in an excellent location, only 5 minutes into town, and the off road parking very handy. The only other negative is the limitted check in times, but I understand you... More

The Guesthouse was spotless and warm. The rooms were well-equipped and the woman, Kiran, that runs the house was truly delightful. Smiley, friendly and lovely. The complimentary breakfast was fantastic and it was an altogether pleasant stay.

Fantastic experience during my stay from start to finish ! Service & Hospitality first class, breakfast & room excellent. Really convenient location & some parking spaces onsite which for such a central location was a pleasant surprise. Would have no hesitation recommending this Guesthouse to anyone. Great Value for money !
