As far as we were concerned, this B&B was perfect. It's an easy walk from the city centre and very close to all kinds of restaurants and pubs. It's about fifteen minutes' walk from St David's Railway Station, and maybe four minutes' walk from Exeter Central Station.
It's very clean and quiet and well organised, with practical closets and a nice little ensuite bathroom with room for all your things (at least in the Ivy room, where we stayed). The owner asks you to write down the night before what time you plan to have breakfast and what you want, and within minutes of your arrival downstairs she has a pot of tea or coffee and an English breakfast (assuming that's what you wanted) served piping hot, on hot plates, with proper fried tomatoes, and really good scrambled eggs.
It is a late-Victorian-era house with three floors, so of course it has stairs, and parking space for no more than three small cars. The owner said that sometimes guests assume they will have a parking space provided, and are disappointed, as it's first come, first served, and parking is very tight so close to the city centre. You may want to budget for underground parking, especially if your car is large and/or precious to you.
