Stayed at this hotel with my two daughters. Large family room on the third floor and although this hotel has its own nightclub it was surprisingly quiet! Great breakfast with plenty of choices. Location is excellent for shopping, winter gardens and pier.

The Royal Exeter was built in the early 1800's and although extended considerably has managed to retain much of the quirkiness and feeling of a Victorian Hotel. Our room (and bed) was comfortable and was spotless The staff throughout the hotel were excellent and although the hotel has a 3 star rating we received 5 star service. The cocktail bar... More

Stayed a night here at a complete bargain price, another snip found on Trivago! A pleasant stay, well located, free car park, staff very good, especially the guy in the cocktail bar who kept us amused at happy hour (5pm - 7pm, half price on selected cocktails) this guy knows his stuff! Room was clean and tidy, if I was... More

We booked a 1 night stay after taking friends to the airport. We had a room over the front entrance facing the main road. We feared it would be noisy and we were in for a bad night but the heavy curtains ensured we had a good nights sleep and we were not aware of any road noise. The cocktail... More

Went on a Travel Zoo deal again as we enjoyed it so much last year. Went with 3 other couples this time so a little nervous if it would live up to expectations. No need to have worried, rooms a good size, very clean, food excellent & staff really friendly & helpful. The only comment being rooms too hot but... More

We booked through Travelzoo for one night at a very good rate. We had stayed before so we knew that it was a nice hotel and could not beat it for what we paid. Nice size room and although we were facing the road it wasn't too noisy at this time of the year. It included dinner and breakfast. We... More

Amazing! The staff were brilliant they made us feel very special. We got married on the beach but our evening was celebrated in the private hire room which was perfect for our small wedding. Breakfast was great and all of our guests loved it. The bridal suite is stunning. Can't wait to visit again.

Three nights here in the first week of December 2015. I have stayed here before around ten years ago but have limited memories. Booked this back in the summer so managed to get a great deal, around £250 I think, three nights, breakfast, wi-fi and parking all in! Parking is via a tight entrance off a roundabout but spacious and... More

Booked a 2 night stay through Travelzoo. Great time at a nice hotel, room good size and staff very friendly. Big asset being a stone's throw from centre, especially in the evening. 2nd stay here and will definitely go back
