Good location, walking distance to the city centre (albeit not a central location, which was fine with us). Competitively priced, friendly staff, clean and well-sized room. Everything you could need. There was a wedding downstairs and we didn't get disturbed at all.

Good location. 20mins walk into Exeter. 5mins from motorway. Perfect situation. Train station and airport very close for convenience. Lodge has a very good restaurant. You can order breakfast at the last minute. Rooms for conferences are available also.

Lovely looking hotel in excellent grounds with rabbits and squirrels everywhere. Friendly staff. I had a nice room overlooking the rear grounds. There was tea/coffee provided and a selection of biscuits. Also a safe, ironing board and a large TV which swivelled both ways. The bathroom was brightly lit and provided with large fluffy towels.
