Requested a king bed got 2 single beds zipped together with a huge lump in the middle of the bed making it uncomfortable for us. Traffic noise was very noticeable. Workmen started drilling In the Opposite room at 8.30am waking us up dramatically from our sleep. We normally get up early, but because the bed was so uncomfortable we had... More

Room was nicely furnished, bed very comfortable. Did not sleep very well at first due to traffic noise from nearby road, but then realised my window was open. AC and fan in room, so not a problem. Food in restaurant lovey and staff very welcoming.

We stayed here for 2nights on our way back from Cornwall. The staff were friendly and helpful - our T.V. was adjusted promptly and we were provided with a street map of Exeter and directed to the park and ride which was a 5 minute walk away and ran every 10 minutes. The room was air-conditioned and although the bathroom... More

Comfortable room, delicious, well organised breakfast. Infact I think it was best breakfast we've ever had whilst away. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Only downside was a lot of traffic noise due to the hotel being situated on a busy junction.

I recently stayed here on business and I was more than happy with the beautiful modern new bedroom. The room was decorated in creams, beiges and blacks with all the mod cons you need, including SKY TV, WiFi, USB charging point, air con, tea & coffee making facilities and a safe. There is even a new Gym which has all... More

Great hotel, well placed. Rooms clean with good fittings, bathrooms all fitted well, wonderfully deep bath, and good shower. The staff were all very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Have stayed her several times, and always pleased. Just wish there was sheets etc, instead of duvets. That would be our only fault with the hotel.

I've stayed a number of times at this hotel and have always liked my stay there. The rooms have been spacious, clean and there is a small gym a short walk from your room (or if you're lucky enough, next door!). There is plenty of parking which is always a problem with the more central hotels. Although it's not in... More
