5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Very friendly owner who made sure we were made to feel welcome and ensured we had all our needs tended to. The room was very homely, cosy and quiet with all neccessary amenities.The food was also very good.

Colleagues reguarly use the hotel for business visits in Exmouth and I will do so in the future also.

We stayed at Fernside for 4 nights and were made very welcome. The hotel was lovely and warm, comfortable and the breakfast was delicious-especially the bacon! Situated near to everything in Exmouth, no need to take the car out. Would definately recommend this hotel to family and friends Thank you.

Room Tip: Room 10 was really cosy.

Malia and I are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and that you would recommend us to family and friends. Also very happy you liked your breakfast - I agree that the bacon is delicious and it is difficult not to eat a full cooked breakfast every day.

We hope to see you again in the future

I have stayed here a few times now - all of the rooms are really nice and comfortable. The breakfast is always perfect and the staff go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need and more. I am sure I will be staying again!

Made to feel very welcome and enjoyed my time at the Fernside. Best place I have stayed in for a long time. The breakfast was just perfectly prepared for my tastes and very enjoyable. Most relaxing and very comfortable, I don't think they could do anything better as they already exceeded my expectations. Any wonderful Easter Break, thanks guys.

Room Tip: We had a room at the front of the hotel on the main road side and could not hear a thing from the an...

Stayed at the Fernside Hotel in Exmouth for two nights. Excellent customer service,from first contact through to checking out.
Rooms were to a high standard and had everything needed to ensure a comfortable stay. Shower was fantastic!!
Breakfast was all you could wish for! Cereals, fruit, yoghurt and juices. Followed by your breakfast of choice. Plenty tea, coffee and toast. Again, high standards of cleanliness.
The customer service at the Fernside is exactly as you should expect.
Giles and his team work exceptionally hard to ensure the hotel runs smoothly and we benefited from that. So a big thank you to them all.
I will be recommending the Fernside to family and friends and indeed hoping to return myself.

Room Tip: We stayed in rooms 9 and 10. Right at the top.

We stayed on Boxing day for two nights as there were too many of us for the mother in laws!! Her house is just over the road so the location was perfect for us. We were welcomed by the owners son and although we had booked a ground floor room on-line, he had moved us to the first floor as he said it was a little chilly downstairs - a very nice gesture as I really feel the cold.
The room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was very good - not that we felt like a big breakfast being over the christmas period but we did oblige!
Would definately stay here again.

Very friendly and accomodating service, which enhanced the clean, quiet rooms and good food. We appreciated the extra effort of sending a forgotten item on to us after our stay. Room allocation was very good with three rooms suitably situated close to each other.
