We stayed at the abode over the Easter weekend, it was a lovely hotel that I would recommend it to anyone staying in Exeter. We arrived late on the Friday evening and the hotel were very welcoming on arrival. We had a room on the 3rd floor overlooking the cathedral. Since we were late arriving we had a meal in the cafe bar, the meal was excellent, way above standard for what you expect for a cafe bar. Afterwards we had champagne in the champagne bar, prices were what you would expect in a hotel. It was nice.
The room was very clean, a little on the small side but very comfortable. We even had a free thorntons Easter egg. From what I know there was no wifi but the place next door had free wifi that we could hook up to.
The hotel was right in the centre, literally 30 seconds walk to all the shops, this was great for a Saturday morning shop.
The hotel has a restaurant by Michael Caines, we tried to get a reservation but it was full, to be fair we left it till last minute so didn't expect to get a table. Breakfast was served in the restaurant and the service was outstanding. The staff could not do enough for you and would create a breakfast to suit your requirements. I would highly recommend it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Looking to the future of The Royal Clarence, we have every intention to rebuild the hotel with enormous sympathy. The 18th-century hotel, said to be one of the oldest in England, was gutted when a blaze spread from an adjacent building on Friday morning. The fire wrecked the inside of the landmark building and left the frontage on the brink of collapse. ... more less
