This hotel is one of our favourites, because of its friendly atmosphere combined with a fantastic building in the city centre. Its location right opposite the Cathedral is great for access to the shops and restaurants around Exeter. It is also walking distance to the river. The hotel is an old building, with some interesting angles, but the contemporary styled rooms are comfortable and imaginative. We tend to upgrade from the basic rooms. We especially like the ones with baths in the rooms themselves. The bathrobes, and toiletries provided all add to a feeling of luxury The staff are always friendly and very helpful, last time they lent us their umbrellas when it was raining heavily.
One of the best things whilst staying is eating in the Michael Caines restaurant. The food is excellent modern cuisine. The staff are very helpful and attentive as you would expect from a Michelin starred establishment, though not cheap it feels worth it.
The hotel doesn’t have any allocated parking nearby, so once you have unloaded you have to relocate the car to the Mary Arches car park a short walk away. The Abode is a wonderful place to stay, with a different experience from most hotels.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
