            Good location, on site parking and hotel was clean and well maintained. Staff generally friendly and helpful, room was comfortable.

            The bar was very expensive, the rooms were very warm and the location next to a ring road meant that having the window open kept you awake. The restaurant was very quiet with no atmoshere yet I was rushed through my starter and main course before I had finished one glass of wine! I would suggest eating in the city centre.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Great location. Good breakfast

            Furniture in room was old and had been damaged on corners.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            The room was an excellent size, the bedding was of a high standard and the location is very central to the city.

            1.Receptionist very abrupt - told no room until 2pm: it was 1:45 at the time 2.The bathroom was small and the shower not very powerful. 3.The room was quite dark. 4. Despite ringing to check re availability of spa (as Booked.net website correctly said it was being refurbished), was told only ladies changing room would be out of action - they did not add that this also meant no ladies sauna 5. Superior room had a connecting door to room with 2 very noisy children in it - no attempt made by parents to quieten them: beware if booking Superior room - they are also used as family rooms

            The location is good for sight seeing and shopping all easy walkng distance, and 20 mins drive to coastal areas. Room was clean and a nice size size with veiws of the cathedral we had a very nice relaxed 3 day break

            There is some refurbishing going on at swimming pool some early starts by the builders

          • Couple
            8.8

            The Privileged Room was definitely value for money, the bed was extremely comfortable and we had a great view of the cathedral. The location of the hotel was very convenient, just a 3-4 minute walk to the city centre. Room service was efficient and all the staff were lovely.

            There are no bath tubs.

          • Older travelers
            5.4

            The staff were very polite and helpful. Good location from which to explore Exeter.

            Far too many people using the leisure centre the gymnasium was totally overloaded and the changing rooms were too small. The quality of the cooked breakfast was poor - the food was too cold and the plates were also cold.

          • Family with children
            9.6

            Wasnt happy about staying in a 4 star hotel and then having to pay £8.00 for parking. Very disapointed with this.

          • Single
            8.8

            Excellent room. Excellent bathroom, bed, cutlery, crockery and tv etc. I couldn't fault it.

            The internet charge is nothing more than a rip off and one that all hotel chains seem to think is an acceptable practise. It is my intention in future to only stay in hotels with either free access or have BT Openzone. Stop ripping me off.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Leisure facilities.Great breakfast.

            Swimming pool had a problem with heating and was too cold.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Rooms were fantastic

            noise from car park barrier all night

          • Older travelers
            5.4

            The comvenience to City amenities.

            1.A reception which offered no assistance with baggage.2.A non smoking room that smelt of smoking which is because the wallpaper on the walls was from its previous smoking status which we understand was Dec 2009! 3.We were not offered an alternative room. 4.We were not offered a newspaper in the mornings.5.We were surprised to be charged for using broadband so declined and went elsewher.6. To charge guests an additional charge of £8 per 24 hrs for parking when 100 yds away it was cheaper did not go down well-the exit arrangments are daft.7.Allowing corporate entertainment in the main lobby area results in non participants having to walk through their activity to reach the lifts-not recomended!

          • Older travelers
            6.2

            Excellent breakfast, both continental and English. Good bed

            I don't expect to be woken by room service tapping at the door at 8.15am when breakfast is available to 10. Supper waitress attention sporadic, told could not order on arrival "because a large party has just ordered", subsequently forgotten and two later arrivals ordered and served before us. No steak knife provided for hopelessly tough venison. Room television not fully functional, mini bar empty. The bizarre violet-purple downlighters in the corridors were truly egregious, but perhaps beloved by someone like Lawrence Llewellyn Bowen. £8 parking is a lot, but that is Exeter for you

          • Couple
            8.8

            The facilities were excellent

            Paying for the carpark on top of the hotel cost

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Convenient for the city centre, pleasant atmosphere, well appointed, clean comfortable rooms, lovely pool

            Car parking @ £8 per day is okay for a city centre location but really should be free
