Dear Vicki H. Thank you for taking the time to write an online review of your recent stay with us. Naturally we are very sorry for the disturbance the alarm caused you and all our guests at such an awful time of night, this was as you know, caused by an inconsiderate guest also staying that night. Sadly this is something that happens from time to time, nevertheless it's extremely frustrating when it turns out not to be an emergency. I am glad though that the team provided you with the letter explaining the situation. Thank you again for your time. Alex M.

Dear Lisa C. Thank you for leaving such a great review from your recent stay with us. I am really pleased we managed to cater for your needs whilst with us. We have staff on hand 24 hours a day and I am really pleased that my colleague was really helpful, polite and welcoming. Breakfast as you know is always included in your stay with us and I'm thrilled you enjoyed it so. It is true we are close to Exeter Airport and do occasionally have flights coming past depending on their approach but with it being a regional airport the disturbance isn't a constant. Thank you again for your time. Alex M

Interconnecting rooms. Free WiFi. Breakfast included. Clean, smart rooms. Quiet. Ideal for short breaks- not particularly romantic, but perfect if travelling through. Very friendly staff. Free parking available (at a premium in Exeter). Dinner options a little bland. But plenty

Dear Valued Guest. Thank you for taking the time to leave an online review of your recent stay with us. You have hit the nail on the head regarding WiFi and breakfast which both come complimentary when you stay with us. It's also true that we don't have a full service menu here at the hotel but do serve a small snack menu throughout the day. Also correct is that parking is always complimentary when you stay with us here at M5 J29. Thank you again for your time we hope to see you again. Alex M.

On a long weekend break here with my wife. Chose this location as it's just outside the city close to the major road network and opposite a park and ride. We were Holiday Inn Express virgins so didn't know what to expect, but was very pleasantly surprised. Check in desk

Dear Thistlemania. Thank you for taking the time to leave such a positive, detailed review of your recent stay with us, It's great to read that so many aspects of your stay were to your liking. It's true breakfast is always included when you stay with us and although we can be busy at times the team always do there upmost to replenish the buffet items we have. Our location is a popular factor when staying with us, as you say located just opposite one of the cities park and ride facilities. We do also have a sister hotel opening soon in Exeter City Centre so if you wanted to try our a brand new hotel that one would be a great one to start at! Thank you again for your time. I hope we see you again. Alex M

"Most double rooms are on 2nd floor where as family rooms are on ground. Lots of open spaces."
"A room with a sofa bed, which, if not needed as a bed, gives somewhere comfortable to sit."
"Only two floors, rooms to the back are quieter"
"Can be a bit noisy, especially at weekends, so get an upper floor room."
"2nd floor so no one is running over your head!"
