Homely, comfortable guesthouse, 10 minutes' walk to the centre of Exeter. Our room was extremely clean and thoughtfully furnished, with a very comfortable bed and an en suite bathroom. The owner was most friendly and obliging. We had a wonderful night's stay and would be happy to go back next time we're in the area.

In Exeter on business and spent last Saturday night here! Good central location close to railway station. Bedroom clean and tidy and breakfast tasty! However disappointed to find that my single room was not en suite as I had read in the details of the room on the web site! Private bathroom was accessed by going down a flight of... More

Although I am sure I will be short on words, but reviewing and recommending this place feels like an ethical obligation to me. It was my first time at a B&B and all I can say is that I was, and still am, fascinated. The guesthouse has a very warm cosy atmosphere to it in addition to being very very... More

Had a lovely stay here in May with a friend for two nights. Owner really helpful. Rooms spotless. Good breakfast. In short, value for money and homely and a good base to explore Exeter and its surroundings.

I had a one day trip to Exeter and decided to stay overnight at a B&B and chose Woodbine Guesthouse. I arrived at about 9pm and was pleasantly greeted by the owner and shown to my room which was very clean and comfortable. I chose to pay in advance to prevent any delay in the morning as I had to...

We stayed for 3 nights in a twin bedded room. On the plus side: It is a convenient location - less than 10 minutes walk into the center of the city. The landlady is pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was good and nicely cooked. The room was clean and overlooked the park. On the minus side: The sash windows were... More

Thank you for your recent stay and taking time to write I am very sorry that the window’s broken pane and cords spoilt your stay. The person who broke it did not even report it to me. Although I have short time while running this place, I try my best to keep up with its maintenance. Infect, a window company... More

Great value for a short stay - excellent situation close to town centre and on the way to the university (I had business there). The lady proprietor takes great pride in keeping her place top notch - she is very welcoming, gives advice on getting around, supplies an excellent breakfast and caters to guests individual foibles where possible. A very... More

I was greeted on arrival by the very friendly proprietor, she showed me my room which was spacious, clean and comfortable. It was warm on arrival but got a little too warm in the night. I can't fault this place and would stay again a flash.

Woodbine is one of those places where you'll feel at home. From the location to the room to the food and approach..it was all so good! I would definitely go there if I visited again. Just one thing to watch out (for luggage): the house has stairs and no escalator.
