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.

I have just returned from a 2 night stay in this small and friendly B and B. I had a lovely twin room with views of the park from my window. The room was spotlessly clean ,warm and cosy. It had a Tv, Dvd player and free internet and tea and coffee making facilities along with an ensuite toilet and... More

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.

We stayed at this lovely guesthouse over the Christmas holidays. It is beautifully kept, and extremely comfortable. Kiran made us very welcome. It is perhaps a ten minute walk to the city centre - very convenient!

We found the Guesthouse to be quiet, immaculately clean and well-maintained, with an efficient use of space. The hostess was friendly and helpful. We loved the delicious French-press coffee and fresh fruit salad at breakfast, with fresh flowers on each table. The B&B is located in a quiet neighborhood convenient to shopping, restaurants, transportation, and parks, with an inviting entry... More

Really great find. In a central location and you receive a friendly and warm welcome. The rooms are clean and comfortable and have all the necessary items, e.g. hairdryer, toiletries, etc. Even some nice biscuits with the tea and coffee. I would definitely recommend for business or leisure travel.

Have stayed here twice now. Rooms are very comfortable with TV. The owner is very friendly and does a great breakfast. Ideal for those visiting Exeter. Just over the road is the Farmers Union Pub, serves excellent succulent steak. Give this place a try.
