we stayed here for a friend's wedding and had a great time from start to finish! i booked the hotel pretty last minute and realised after booking that the check in time was half an hour later than the time we were supposed to be at the wedding! i phoned the hotel and asked if we could check in early and they said it would be no problem.
we arrived even earlier than expected but the lady on reception accommodated us and was really friendly! we had trouble getting a taxi to get to the wedding as ther was a football game on and again the hotel staff rallied round and called every firm in exeter to get us a cab. we arrived back from the wedding to a really comfortable bed, it was quiet and peaceful and we slept really well.
The room was basic enough but well decorated, spotlessly clean and had everything you needed - the shower was amazing and everything worked!
Breakfast next day was lovely too, with locally sourced bacon and sausages and plenty of fruit, yoghurts and cereal to choose from - the restaurant even had a beautiful view of immaculate grounds which was a gorgeous setting for breakfast! Check out was a breeze and every member of staff we came accross was friendly and pleasant and couldn't have done more to make our stay enjoyable
Don't be put off by the cheap prices or location - it's a wonderful hotel with brilliant staff!
