My wife and I have stayed at the Royal Exeter on several occasions over the past few years whilst our daughter has been at student at the Arts University and have always enjoyed our return visits with the finest breakfasts on offer. Last Sunday the three of us had the most delicious and reasonable three course lunch with friendly and... More

Booked the hotel due to location very close to the Bournemouth International Conference centre where we saw Katherine Jenkins, both great. You just stroll down the hill and your are at the pier and the wonderful beach. The hotel was brilliant value, attentive staff, clean rooms and wonderful traditional English breakfast. The 1812 cocktail bar is really buzzy and lively... More

Stayed for 2nights (bfast included and dinner included first evening) with travelzoo. Lovely room, excellent sunday roast!! Everything clean and all the 1812 staff very polite and friendly. We had dinner every evening in the hotel. Such a fantastic menu ( set menu and a la carte as well) Only disappointment with the spanish receptionist. We arrived earlier and I... More

We stayed via a good DB&B deal, and think we got excellent value for money. We could not fault the staff at all - from reception to waiting to housekeeping, all 10/10 for politeness and helpfulness - top marks to team. The food was much better quality than we expected - breakfast and dinner could not be faulted at all.... More

Stayed after seeing a show at the BIC and it was so convenient, nice room, great breakfast and very friendly staff. A great weekend and only a short walk to the beach which was a great bonus. Definitely recommend.

Really handy for the BIC and very good value. Arrived before check in time but were given the keys to the room a couple of hours early. The room was fine, OK it's not 5 star but that wasn't what it was advertised as. Shower worked fine for me with easy controls. Had a good night's sleep and didn't find... More

Had a one night stay midweek as visiting the BIC opposite for a concert. Arrived prior to check in time, but were given the keys to our room on the first floor looking towards the BIC. The bedroom and bathroom were good sizes and spotlessly clean. We had lunch and a couple of drinks in the Bar, both of which... More

Hotel and room were cold. Our room had large sash single glazed windows that rattled in the wind. We were given two electric heaters to additionally warm the room. We found much of the hotel decor dark and dreary. Shower very basic and it was difficult to regulate the right temperate flow; it was very easy to scold yourself. Weekend... More
