Woodbine Guest Accommodation
Ranked #8 of 68 Exeter B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 13, 2011

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.

Brilliant little guesthouse, my room and bathroom were very clean and tidy, with a kettle and tv. Cooked breakfast was excellent.

I have stayed at the Woodbine on about 10 occasions whilst completing a course. Each time my room has been faultlessly clean and I have enjoyed a nice breakfast prepared by the owner of the B&B. She has made my stay comfortable each time and she has delivered a friendly service which has met my needs. The rooms have their own colour schemes and either an en-suite or private bathroom, are comfortable and have tea / coffee making facilities as well as a television and wifi. I would definitely choose this B&B if I were to stay in Exeter again, and as I say I stayed about 10 times, if I wasn't satisfied I would have certainly gone somewhere else.

I stay here regularly on business and honestly can't fault it. Friendly owner, modern, comfortable, great breakfast and spotlessly clean. I felt compelled to leave a review after reading the gentleman's complaints about his single room. Having stayed in most of the rooms and that particular room numerous times I can say that it is lovely, clean, cosy, quiet and perfectly adequate for a single traveller. Yes its bathroom is a few steps away but being as there are so few rooms you are unlikely to encounter anyone on your way (I never have), plus it is much bigger than the ensuite bathrooms in the other rooms.
I always look forward to my next stay at the Woodbine, a lovely tranquil place - the highlight of my business trips.

We stayed at Woodbine at the end of our trip through South West England. And I have to say that compared to other B&Bs from the same standard that we have visited, Woodbine was a bit disappointing. Despite the good advices from the owner and the cleanliness of the rooms, I didn't enjoy the stay that much. That is probably due to the fact that I couldn't sleep well because the bed was too small and not very comfortable. What's more the breakfast was small without a lot of choice.

This is a quiet, charming guest house close to the two Exeter stations and the city centre. The room we stayed in (Ivy) was bright and clean, with a lovely en-suite bathroom and an easy-to-use shower. The owner, Kiran, works very hard to make sure guests are happy. Her breakfast menu was very varied and the cooked option well worth having. Good value all round!
