Stayed here one night while on a business trip. Was in room to the back of hotel - with no adjoining walls to other rooms which probably helped with noise issues - the rooms are not sound proofed and the fire doors slam automatically... Good breakfast - with friendly service. Had ensuite - decent enough shower. Furnishings a bit jaded...

First time at this hotel. Excellent value for a dbl inc full english breakast with other options. The breakfast was excellent, and the coffee. There in no lift so if you have difficulty with stairs request room on lower floors. Staff friendly and helpful.

This is a dated and overpriced hotel. Location good is the only plus point. Bathroom is interesting shower either stone cold or boiling hot due to very dated plumbing! I would not stay again. See other reviews as they support my findings. Why do we still have places like this in today's world?

Good location, old school but very clean and functional rooms. However, breakfast finishes at 9.30am sharp as we were perfunctorily and unapologetically informed at 9.31am this morning (Sunday). Could've offered us a bit of toast or a bowl of cereal if nothing else. We did pay for bed and breakfast despite our clearly completely unacceptable timing. 9am breakfast ends I...

The hotel is well located for exploring Exeter and the South Devon coastline, though on a busy road. I'm afraid it is not the kind of hotel that I'm looking forward to come back to after a busy day exploring. For me it was the uninspiring room interior and breakfast. I would strongly advice to invest in some proper bed...

We moved to a Holiday inn Express for our second nights stay as i could not face going back to the room.Holiday inn gave us free...

Two stars - great location and paid £155 for 2 rooms which was reasonably good value. We stayed in room 1 which was very cold although clean. This hotel is like something from the 1970s. The old lady referred to in the other reviews has not improved with age - quite rude. If you arrive for breakfast at 9:45 expecting...

Stayed here for a family trip to Exeter. Good location near city centre and quite easy to check into on arrival. Steps upstairs can get quite steep and insulation between rooms is pretty much non existent so could hear noise coming from other rooms and when other guests would arrive back at night. Room was clean with small bathroom which...
