Breakfast is EXTRA. Room is small. Old soap bar in shower. Price seems too high given there is no breakfast. Want payment before you stay. Never ate in restaurant. I would stay elsewhere if service matters. If all you want is a room that is basic and the service poor this is your place. If not there are nicer real... More

I have stayed at Chi previously in September last year, and as far as I am concerned the best for accommodation,service, and food in the area. Once again I stayed solo for three nights from 01/04/2014. Great service with friendly staff. A great room, clean, tidy, and well equipped with a 32 inch wall mounted TV set. The food was... More

I stayed at Chi for three nights 17th. of September until 20th. Was somewhat concerned about my choice of accommodation as I had stayed there previously some seven years ago when it was a pub named Devon Arms, but it was near to Dawlish where I had to do personal business over a period of four days, Happy to say...

I wanted to stay in Devon for a few days so a room with en suite at a restaurant should have been perfect. Good things first: room was clean & tidy...sorry, that's it. We notified them in advance that we wouldn't be arriving until mid-evening on a Monday but nobody bothered to tell us that the restaurant is closed on... More

Firstly, I would like to apologise for your wait upon arrival. As we are a small business, we are unable to provide staff waiting at the reception at all times, unless during opening hours. The front door is usually locked whilst we are closed. Guests arriving to check in, are able to ring the door bell for prompt service. Unfortunately... More

The room we had was very very clean and nicely furnished although small and I did bump my head on the tv during night. the little extras were nice e.g. bottle of water, slippers and other bitscand bobs. The shower was absolute rubbish! The staff service was also efficient but to the point. The downside was the small room as... More

Chi describes itself as a restaurant with rooms and this is exactly what it is. An old pub in the village of Kenton (12 - 15 minutes outside Exeter) has been converted to a fairly upmarket Chinese restaurant with a menu that has a focus on fresh fish. Honk Kong money I think and the conversion of the restaurant area... More

I stayed at the Chi for 2 nights with a friend. We wanted somewhere close to Powderham Castle for a Cliff Richard concert. The Chi was perfect for us and only a few minutes walk from the castle. The Chinese food in the restaurant was excellent. The breakfasts were also very good. We booked a twin room which came with... More
