Stayed here on a Friday night to break journey from Leicester to Exeter (Topsham). Was nice and central albeit a little tricky to get to round one way system. Not that many car parking spaces and not immediately obvious where car park is either (luckily I'd checked on Google street view first).
Room was a decent size but bed was badly in need of replacement - practically fell out of it when getting up due to dodgy springs.
The anti-slip bathmat is absolutely needed but don't do what I did and try and fit it after you've started showering otherwise it's even slippier than the bath!
Our room was overlooking the car park (not a problem) but had a fire escape outside which was accessible to the public from ground level so didn't feel safe leaving the window open. That said the noise from the bar next door (separate establishment to the hotel) went on well after midnight so an open window would have been difficult anyway.
Couldn't get wi-fi to work even in reception. Staff blamed the weather which seemed unlikely!
Saturday breakfast doesn't start until 8 (and they weren't ready then) but judging by the number of people who were there early I'd say an earlier start would be helpful.
Staff were both friendly and helpful which was the saving grace really.
