Our experiences of the Holiday Inn group has been mainly in the U.S. and it was interesting to compare. Here in Exeter we get real metal knives and forks, and real cups and glasses for our drinks. A good start. The best bit was the perpetual cheerfulness and friendliness of the staff - they must enjoy their jobs. The rooms...

I stay at alot of IHG group hotels mainly in Holiday Inns and I have got to say they are pretty faultless. This is a budget hotel, so the reception, bar and seating area are pretty basic as is the choice of bar snacks however for the price £57 for 2 adults inc parking and breakfast. The rooms are clean,...

Everything about this hotel was as I would expect from this brand. Friendly, efficient Staff. Clean, comfortable room and a good buffet breakfast. It is conveniently located just off the M5. There is a large car park that is shared with a pub that serves food.

It is difficult to fault this hotel in any way and that's why we keep coming back. Feeling like a mini break, we had no hesitation in choosing Devon and booking this hotel again.

These large corporate hotels offer good value A nice large clean room Comfortable bed and a good shower A basic breakfast But for the price well you can't knock it Staff are very helpful This particular one is some 3 miles from town centre. So you'll need transport But Exeter is a lovely old city. Well worth a look
