There are more to choose from nowadays but the Buckerell Lodge remains a good choice for a short stay in Exeter. The Topsham Road is one of the main routes into Exeter so the hotel is...

As a family we have quite often dined at the Buckerell. Lodge as it is close to my parents. The staff are always very accommodating and attentive towards my parents. The quality of the food is always high. The menu tends to lean to good quality traditional food which they achieve. Overall it's a very pleasant traditional establishment
