We were looking for a hotel in Exeter due to attending a funeral. The two criteria that the hotel had to meet was that a) it was in Exeter. b) it had air conditioning. This met both criteria. Unfortunately, that was where anything good about this hotel stopped. With it being graduation week, they had decided to double the price of the rooms. £169 for a 3* room only. Absolutely ridiculous, and they hadn't even bothered to upgrade their service.
The room, although a superior room, was pokey and with only 1 chair, the airconditioning switched itself off after about 30 minutes and the ensuite was shabby. Free Wifi, but the password ran out overnight, On contacting reception, they said if I went down they would give me the new one. It was only when I asked to be given it over the phone did they, after a pause, agree.
The bed was hard and the pillows made from marshmallows, awful nights sleep.
Breakfast was awful, cheapest food out, tables not cleared and help yourself to beverages rather than be served with them. Fruit was all straight from a tin, and a cheap tin at that.
Overall, a total rip off from start to finish.
