My husband and I stayed for 1 night, a Sunday. Staff were friendly, from the moment we arrived, food was lovely. The view from our room was beautiful. Hotel is a little tired but certainly wouldn't put us off going back. Parking was not a problem, plenty out the front.

Our room had a good view, and was spacious,but bathroom dated, carpet stained, and generally grubby. Skirting board paint flaking away, window wood frame rotten and some wood fell out on opening window. Tarnished sockets. Bed was a... More

We hired the hotel as a venue for a lunchtime family event. On the plus side, a lady with light coloured hair on reception was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. She handled our check in with a willing smile and efficient manner. Unfortunately it appeared that the other staff we encountered felt that our presence was something of... More

We had a great stay in Exmouth. I cannot say enough good things about the staff at the Royal Beacon. They were incredibly helpful and understanding, and they helped us on a number of occasions with taxis', cellphone chargers and wake-up calls. The room was basic, with an extremely large bathroom as an added bonus. The only real downside was... More

We have been visiting Exmouth on birdwatching breaks for many years but this was our first stay at The Beacon. We arrived at about 17.00, managed to park maybe 50 metres away and walked to reception to a friendly check-in process. After settling in and freshening up went out to dinner in the town. After eating we had a walk... More
