“Very Disappointed”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

We arrived to a untidy carpark, we entered the reception and was met by very friendly staff and a nice area, we were told that we were in block 2. The corridor had damp stains on the carpet and smelt. We did request to change rooms as the standard double was very small and difficult for 2 people to get ready. We had to pay for this so called upgrade - although the room was better in size - it smelt like the corridor, the duvet was only just fits could do with being the next size up, the ensuite very poor quality - mouldy grout, cracks giving a feeling of unclean. for £70+ i do expect far better quality than what you offered and at night its very poorly lit up when you have to walk outside!

For the price you pay this is a brilliant hotel.

The staff are really friendly and helpful. Check in was fast and efficient.

The food is very good as well as being reasonably priced. I wanted a main course from the restaurant menu but as I was travelling alone didn't want to eat in the restaurant. They happily served me in the bar instead.

I had room 4, which is nice and close to the main reception building. The bed was very comfortable. The water pressure is great too.

I think this is a great base for anyone who is on business in the area. I'm not sure how easy it is to get to anything other than by car though.

There is a petrol station just across the road which is handy if you want drinks or snacks etc.

I would definitely stay at Exeter Court again.

Over the last 5 years we've stayed at this hotel many, many times throughout the year and have always enjoyed our stay. The rooms, staff and food have always been excellent, and therefore we look forward to every visit. The rooms in particular are very comfortable and their rates are very good no matter what the season. There's even a bar and late-night food if required + very a good large car park.
For a listed 3-Star hotel it is very good value indeed.

Room Tip: Rooms away from facing the car park are quieter. Go for a larger room with more space and an armchai...

I have stayed here on several occasions for buisiness. I usually try to stay in the Aston suite but on my recent visit it was booked so I was put in a "large" double. The room was half the size of what you would expect in a Premier Inn and the bathroom was tiny and in serious need of updating. The room decor was ok but the carpet was stained and had a musty smell.
The food in the restuaruant is very good and reasonably priced as is the food served in the bar. Reception and waiting/bar staff are friendly and helpful.
If you book a room here ask for a room without adjoining doors to the next room, you can hear everything, there is no sound proofing at all.

Room Tip: Ask for the Ashton Suite or a room without adjoing doors.

We stopped for the night at the Exeter Court Hotel on our way to Cornwall. I must say its a great start to your holiday and breaks up what is a very long journey to complete on a busy Saturday morning. The hotel is great, the rooms are clean and tidy and the beds were again very comfy. A nice relaxing evening in the hotel bar including a nice bite to eat. We had a very peaceful nights sleep followed by a hearty breakfast. The staff are very good, friendly and helpfull from check in to check out. Id recomend the hotel without a worry to anybody for an overnight stop over or longer.
We will definatly be booking again next year.
