Taking advantage of an excellent Travelzoo deal we have just spent two nights DBB at the Royal Exeter. We found access and parking on arrival no problem and although early, our room was ready for us. We found every member of staff from reception through to restaurant unfailingly pleasant, helpful and very efficient. Our room was, as requested, a fairly...

Very impressed as we were on a ridiculously good deal with Travelzoo. Reception was one of the friendliest I have encountered; information professionally supplied with the minimum of fuss including locally available amenities. The bedroom and bathroom were exceptionally clean and very comfortable, a good night's sleep was had by all. Nice bar and restaurant downstairs, although we didn't use...

Really impressed. Quick check in with very friendly and welcoming staff and the room was really comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was probably the best I have eaten in a hotel as it must have been cooked to order. You could tell because the scrambled eggs hadn't gone dry and horrible. Would definitely return without hesitation.

We booked this hotel because of the very good deal- under £80 for 1 double room, breakfast, dinner and town centre parking. It is located across the road from the BIC and the car park has a tight narrow entrance, off a roundabout passing the front entrance door ( very poor lightning at night whilst walking up the slope from...

Just returned from a stay at this lovely hotel. We really can't fault it. Staff are welcoming, rooms very spacious and spotlessly clean. The food in the restaurant was fabulous. Really good quality, and our Spanish waiter was great. Nothing was too much trouble. Look forward to returning soon.

We booked one night through Travelzoo and had a really lovely time. Staff were so good and so helpful, room was good too with windows on two walls, one of which gave a narrow view of the sea.

Staff where helpful, the rooms lovely and clean. The bar area is great with a baby grand and bar prices are not rip off prices. Breakfast and dinner were amazing. We would go again if in the area. Shops are close buy and the conference centre is over the road.
