This is without a doubt the best hotel in Exmouth if you can bag a front view room you will be very happy as the views across the estuary are great. Rooms nice and comfortable with all mod cons. Reception staff really do go the extra mile to make sure your stay Is enjoyable. Can't wait to come back

My family (2 adults & 2 children) have recently stayed for 2 nights at this hotel, which despite being a little tired and old fashioned, was lovely! We had 2 adjoining rooms (202 & 204) with sea views! The rooms were very spacious and the bathrooms were extra large! Both rooms had big flat screen TV's and great amenities (tea,... More

This is an OK hotel, offering very average value for money. The location is excellent overlooking the estuary, but the hotel feels a little unloved and feels indifferently managed, despite the friendly staff. The room decor was dated and the double bed small and rock hard. The breakfast service was quite good, although the continental options were quite limited. With... More

This is a very comfortable hotel run by friendly and helpful staff. We did not have a sea view but there are rooms which do have a superb view across the estuary and out to sea.

Great hotel .. serviced by local amenities that is fabulous beach walks and restaurants. Staff very friendly with a great view of the sea/ estuary. Parking was limited but we dumped the car first day and used our feet.. walking and cycling around the local area very beautiful to get out from the city.

The room was right at the top of the building but there was a lift, albeit a very 'cosy' one. The room was clean, and well appointed but due to... More

Lovely hotel, with wonderful views over Exmouth and the sea. The room was spotless, the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was very enjoyable. The on-site car parking was very limited, and the roads around seemed quite busy - get there early. Perfect location for a stroll along the sea front. There is a lift up from the carpark, and...
