I too was staying at the Royal Clarence the night of the fire having enjoyed a delicious dinner in the restaurant the night before. I have always found the staff extremely welcoming and their professionalism and concern for their guests that night could not be faulted. The owner has promised to rebuild and we hope the Royal Clarence will one... More

We had an overnight stay in Exeter to explore the city (meal out and shopping the next day). The room was very well furnished and equipped. The ABode was an excellent location right in the heart of Exeter a few metres from the cathedral. Hopefully they'll be able to rebuild it.

Known this 1769 Hotel, and in fact the building is older, hotel for many years myself. Overlooking Exeter's magnificent Cathedral. Had a most pleasant dinner there in September - rooms were already fully booked. Great staff, I hope they are looked after by the fire insurance. An immense historic loss. Please rebuild it in the same style....with magnificent 1769 crest... More

This is the second time that I stayed at this hotel - the first time was in June 2016, when I stayed for 2 nights and had a large room overlooking the Cathedral. On this occasion, I had booked what they call a comfortable double room, and was happily upgraded on my arrival to a "desirable" room on the third... More

Stayed a night on our way to Plymouth from Southampton. Hotel location very good. Effort has been put in to modernise. Service bit cold at front desk. Excellent breakfast. I left a shirt behind and have emailed them numerous times with no response yet.

Excellent position but bedrooms poor, too small with very limited room in bedroom itself. The bathroom had a tiny basin that was barely useable. The set menu didn't vary so if staying more than 2 days very limiting.

Lovely hotel which retains character yet boasts a stylish modern interior. We enjoyed a room upgrade and dinner was lovely. Our room was clean and the bed was huge and very comfortable. We will return to this lovely hotel and it's friendly staff again.

A clean and modern looking hotel. Loved the design of the room with roll top bath, shower cubicle and huge bed. Service was good. Check in efficient and a smashing champagne bar to visit! Quiet and well situated for discovering Exeter City centre.
