                  Excellent location, handsome exterior, interior disappointing (somewhat over-refurbished). Good pub attached.

                  Two "housekeeping" problems, notified to the hotel.

                  good size rooms. friendly staff,

                  beds are too soft. there is a big thing made of them and it was the biggest let down.

                  Attention to detail and the beautiful outlook onto Exeter Catherdral

                  8.8

                  Very comfortable rooms, beds of good quality and size, and the facility to put a child in a double room at no extra cost, the city centre location.

                  We enjoyed a reasonably priced meal at the cafe bar, but the breakfast rate was too exoensive for us ( for a family of 6). This did not really matter as there were other places nearby.

                • Family with children
                  7.0

                  Nice location. Nice and friendly staff.

                  In this kind of hotel breakfast should be included in the room rate

                • Older travelers
                  4.6

                  The location of the hotel was superb right on the Cathedral Close overlooking the Cathedral and incredibly central to Exeter city centre

                  This hotel is what is currently described as 'boutique' - it is very expensive and has a great deal of charm and character - however the facilities were very disappointing - no full length mirror in room, not enough shelf space in bathroom, very meagre coffee and tea facillities - a noisy air conditioning system. We chose to stay here thinking it would be much more luxurious than the Thistle but it lacked on all fronts except the view.

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  Courtesy and helpfulness provided by the reception staff

                • Older travelers
                  6.2

                  Really the location was fantastic and the breakfast was so good too nice shower and view in bedroom

                  Well we booked it because friends were going to be there, was very dissapointed to learn we did not book breakfast then when we asked for it were quoted 13 pounds extra each, when our friends had got it for 7.50 each. We managed to get the price down to 7.50 then when we got the bill it added on another 27 pounds plus 15, so we had to tell the man who had given us the bill and decided to answer the phone while he was serving us. Its probably not your fault but we couldnt sleep as the bed was too soft and uncomfortable.

                • Older travelers
                  6.6

                  Well appointed and most comfortable.

                  Access ! Labyrinthine journey to reach the hotel, and a route march to retrieve the car before leaving the following morning ! With or without luggage, an absolute nightmare to get to the building. The 'assigned' car park is not Exeter's finest - but, nor do any of the other City Centre pasr parks have much to commend them in terms of price and convenience. Exeter - please improve your traffic signage !

                • Older travelers
                  10.0

                  The hotel was in every respect excellent and the staff, particularly those at the Reception Desk, were extremely helpful.

                • Older travelers
                  9.2

                  Very spacious and comfortable room, very friendly and helpful staff, excellent location for the Cathedral and shops, but above all exquisite food and wine

                • Older travelers
                  5.4

                  The hotel is in a beautiful and very central location. From front facing rooms you get a magnificent view of the Cathedral and the Close.

                  Parking is a quarter of a mile away and you pay an extra £9 for this. Our standard room (208) was ridiculously small, you could barely get round the bed. The bathroom sink was also small and a problem to use without getting water on the floor. Perhaps we were unlucky but our mattress needed replacing as a spring was sticking out. On our last visit we had found the beds very comfortable... how things change.

                • Couple
                  7.8

                  Location is excellent room was very comfy

                  Room wasn't ready until 2 hours after it was supposed to be. Tv/DVD appeared to require 3 remote controls instructions however were for a different system which was very frustrating

                • Older travelers
                  5.4

                  Convenient to city centre shops and most beautiful cathedral.

                  No assistance to help with luggage. Car park a distance from hotel and this is most unpleasant when pouring with rain.
