“The view was the best thing”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We stayed here on 10th July and asked for a top floor view of the estuary which we got. It was on the third floor and accessed by a small noisey lift. The room was small, but it did have a new refurbished bathroom. The two windows were very difficult to open, it needed a strong hand. The views when the windows were open were lovely one could see all along the coast The only complaint I would say would be the bed, it was an old mattress and could feel the springs coming through. The hotel needs total refurbishment, and we seemed to be the youngest couple there. It seems to cater for the older coach type couples. But apart from that all staff were very pleasant, the breakfast excellent, We did not have an evening meal, but went into Exmouth. The small carpark is at the back,

I have visited Exmouth for many years. The welcome at this hotel is always warm and welcoming and everybody is so friendly. Yet again we had a lovely room with sea views, hot water whenever we wanted it and an excellent nights sleep every night. The food was, as usual, beautifully cooked and presented and we were spoilt for choice every night. The staff are like an extended family, they can never do enough for you. The superb location allowed us to go by train, we could walk to the beach in five minutes, into the town in five minutes (where you can catch buses to many places such as Exeter, Seaton, Budleigh Salterton to name but a view, you just can't beat it. I am counting the days until I can go on my next break to The Manor Hotel, in my opinion the best hotel in Exmouth.

Room Tip: I have stayed in all parts of the hotel, all the rooms are clean and bright and there are no noisy r...

Situated overlooking the beach at Exmouth the Manor Hotel provides a perfect location for shopping and visiting local places. Car parking on site. The food was excellent with a choice of starters, main and desert even the full english breakfast makes the day. Hotel clean and the staff are very friendly. Everyone you speak to in the area have a good word for the Manor Hotel. If visiting Exmouth don't forget to view this hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are non smoking

second visit to hotel, last time 1998. Not a lot of change still very welcoming the staff are their greatest asset nothing was too much trouble food was excellent public rooms good. They are in the process of refurbing the bedrooms. Entertainment provided 2 nights in week.
Close to all the shops in Exmouth flat walks, local bus services close to hand It was the time of the Exmouth festival and there were free bands every day and night to see in the adjacent park. Such fun different genres every night. Well looked after by security patrols finished at 2200hrs on the dot each night. Lighting of the beacons followed by firework display on the last night of diamond jubilee also more fireworks on the Friday night last night of festival.
Parking available in back of hotel but only 6 places or on the road outside the hotel. Good holiday with good friends.

Room Tip: not on top floor ask if you can have one on 1st floor they seem to have completed refurbishment ther...

dark and unwelcoming entrance and reception did not make for the best first impression. This was not improved by the cold rooms, no heating and the drafty sash windows, give me double glazing over "character" every time. Bathroom was filled by a giant bath, when a walk in shower would have been more than sufficient and more practical. Breakfast was a massive disappointment, made even worse by the squeeky kitchen doors used continuously by the obviously bored and unmotivated waitress. To be honest to pay £70 for the room inc. breakfast was not good value for money as I actually had a more comfortable stay at a Premier Inn the previous night and only had to pay half the price!!!

Travelled on a coach from Cornwall. First impressions on entering the hotel was slightly disappointing in that there appeared to be a large empty room on the right but we were huddled around a comparatively small reception area which I wouldnt have thought was a pleasant place to spend any time even for the staff - why not use the bigger room for the reception area (I did notice later on over the weekend that this also doubled as a tv room)
The food was excellent - with several options for breakfast and dinner - ideal for a fusspot like me! The room was a twin but no supplement was charged as I was the only occupant, the room was cleaned and refreshed by a group of pixies who did a marvellous job while I was filling my face at breakfast. The only criticism I would have is that the mattress was far too hard for me i overcame this on the third night by stuffing pillows under the sheet! The gentleman who referred to himself as the gopher did say that if we had any problems to let him know and he would sort it but I thought the mattress might be a bit of a drag to change. The staff were very good - one lady, who may have been the manageress walked past our table several times and didn't really ask if everything was ok but constantly puffed her hair from her face by exhaling - I don't know if she was shy but she seemed to interact well with the guests not on our tour.The remainder of the staff were excellent. I had everything I needed in this hotel. Big room, excellent views, superb meals and good company

Room Tip: 2nd floor at the front (room 15)
