We celebrated our sons graduation at the Lord Haldon in July, we had a wonderful evening. The food was excellent, great quality and value for money. The staff were very helpful, especially Ruth the manager, she went out of her way to ensure the evening was a success. This hotel is off the beaten track but it is well worth... More

Staying at the Lord Haldon was a last minute thing, our having had to change plans at a few days' notice. What a great choice. The hotel is set in lovely Devon surroundings with pleasant and well kept gardens about 5 miles from Exeter. Watch out for the very narrow lanes getting there but the effort is worthwhile. Very friendly/helpful... More

I was looking for an overnight stay en route to Cornwall. I *thought* I'd end up at a travelodge-type place but they were full and cost more than I'd planned to spend. I was delighted to find a cheaper option in the Lord Haldon. The room was generously large. The view was lovely. The location was quiet. I spent the... More

If your looking for a hotel which is fasted paced and has the modern feel, this hotel won't be for you! However if you want some peace & quiet, set in beautiful grounds and countryside then this...

This place is well worth the effort of negotiating the long winding Devon lanes to reach it. The food is excellent, the service is prompt & friendly & a programme of redecoration is well under way. The public rooms are tastefully done there's a wonderful garden with a fantastic view-It would make a marvellous wedding venue. Some of the bedrooms... More

Room with a view means 2nd floor and there is no lift. There are no rooms on the ground floor! Views over the Exe Valley towards Woodbury Common an the Sidmouth Gap were great. Sultry, humid weather for our 2day stay and no air con. They provide a fan which did the job! Food what you might expect. In the... More

Have stayed at the hotel 5 times now, 4 with my 3 young sons in tow. The setting is stunning - Devon countryside at its best. The hotel is having a makeover so some rooms have been done and some still awaiting a bit of a facelift but even the ones still to be done are very clean and comfortable.... More

The Best Western Lord Haldon Hotel, Exeter, is difficult to find and to drive to. There is no lift. There was a smell of a dusty vacuum cleaner when entering the reception and up to the room all the time, yet the bits on the stairs were there all week which puzzled us. In the room the carpeted floor was... More
