“Wedding weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

My family and I enjoyed our stay here. Giles and his staff are great. Great rooms all spotlessly clean. We had a superior room very spacious big bathroom only comment I would make is that a shelf would be nice in the shower to pop toiletries on. Breakfast very tasty great choice. Fantastic location walking distance to sea front and town which was lucky as I was on crutches. We would definetly stay here again. Thank you Giles and his staff.

Thank you very much for your review, it means a lot to know that you enjoyed your stay and it's great to know that you'll be back - you are always welcome. I agree that the shower in Room 2 needs somewhere to put your toiletries - the shower is so big that there would be adequate space.

Hope to see you next time you are down this way.

Had a wonderful week staying at Fernside Hotel.. Great location with just a short stroll to the esplanade and the local pubs. Giles our host couldn't do enough to help.. Would highly recommend a stay at this Hotel.

After spending a week in London I headed down to Exmouth to explore my family roots. I stumbled upon the Fernside Hotel. What an excellent place to stay. Giles you are the man and to put it in your words my stay was smashing. Breakfast was yummy and the option to have an evening meal cooked by Giles is not to be missed. I would recommend this place to anyone heading down that way.

We chanced upon this place as we hadn't booked anywhere. The staff were excellent, the rooms terrific, and great breakfasts. Just a short stroll to town. We usually stay in hotels or apartments but really enjoyed this. One of the benefits was a shared lounge room where I had a couple of pleasant chats with fellow guests. This doesn't happen in apartments. Highly recommended.

After travelling down from London it was great to be greeted by Giles and the team at Fernside.

We were shown to our room (room 5) which was large, clean and nicely furnished with a few extra contemporary little touches such as the cushions and pictures! Room 5 has a bath as well which was useful.

There were 4 of us (2 Adults and 2 young Children) and the room worked well. it even had blackout blinds which helped us get the children off to sleep in the middle of summer. The bathroom had everything we needed.

The Fernside is close the middle of town and also to the beach and we found the 5min walk was no trouble even with buckets, spades and windbreaks!

I breakfast is good with a nice selection of cold and hot options, I would recommend the bacon Sandwich, superb!

Overall great value for money and the place we like to stay when in Exmouth.

I love staying at this B&B. I have come back here every time I stay in Exmouth to visit friends and family. The staff is great and efficient, the breakfast is great with lots of options and the dinner being available now is fantastic and definitely value for you money.

The weather when we were there was great and being so close to the beach and parks was a definite bonus!

The rooms are very nice, clean and tidy. A new addition was the reading room. It was lovely to sit in there in the sun and read some of the many books there. A very relaxing holiday!

Room Tip: The superior rooms are great, but if they aren't available, I love to stay in room 9 or 10 in th...

Stayed here a few weeks back so we could catch up with some friends and their new-born!

The room was nice and tidy, and our breakfasts were just thing to get us ready for the day. Lovely staff and so close to the town center. We'll definitely stay here again - thank you!
