Stayed here for just the one night but I'd have been happy to stay longer. We were greeted by friendly reception staff, check in process was very easy, we even had the option of which floor we'd like to be on. Upon getting to our room it was very clean, tidy and overall nothing to complain about. There was a...

A friend and myself stayed in this hotel on 23/03/17. We had an early morning flight from Exeter International Airport and the hotel is situated close by the airport. Our room was a good sized twin room with two very comfortable beds, all the usual facilities, quiet and very clean. Staff were friendly and very helpful even at 04:45 when...

This was not our first choice hotel for a short break in Devon; but it turned out very well. Reception was efficient and friendly, and our room and its facilities were everything you would hope for. The hotel was easy to find, just off the M5, and with good parking. We avoided having to take our hire car into Exeter...

Hotel facilities good in general, perfectly useable and reasonable price. I ate out in the evening as advised by others. Room quite nice to be honest, comfy bed and air con, if a bit noisy. Breakfast: Simply awful. No wonder it's free. I ate at 720 and was greeted by awful bacon, and egg I dare not touch. There was...

The only negative was the road noise infiltrating into our room.Number 115. Air con worked well and the bed was especially comfy. Breakfast was good apart from the croissants and coffee but I believe the coffee machine wasn't working correctly. Apart from the road noise the hotel was quiet even with lots of children about.
