The staff is really friendly and the hotel is quite good considering its price. My room was on the top floor (4 stairs and no elevator) and the receptionist offered to carry my really heavy and huge suitcase. The bathroom was probably the smallest I've seen in my entire life but it was clean. The breakfast is also quite good....

Great value, basic but clean .. decor dated but I dont really care about that as long as the bed etc is clean and comfy which it was . Lots of coffee and tea. Soap and shower gel available in the bathroom. I would have liked a bath but the shower was good and hot water plentiful...I managed to park...

Booked 4 rooms for 7 people after coming back from Greece on holiday and apparently they sent us an email 2 days ago whilst we were abroad saying if we don't provide the three digits from the back of my bank card within 2 hours they will cancel the booking!!!!! Fuming isn't the word, we are now stuck without accommodation,...

We recently stayed here very noisy with main road,double bed was a camp bed with a 2inch thick mattress which was propped up with wood!!! No space around the camp bed had to access it from the bottom,Curtains were ripped, shower had mould. Breakfast staff were not very pleasant. I definitely would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Dreadful experience!!!!...

The bed was very uncomfortable and the pillows were lumpy. The linens are old and are blue and patterned but could tell that the duvet was stained and was unsure that the linens were clean. Furniture in the room was broken and stained with cigarette burns. TV was smaller than my laptop screen. There was no "do not disturb" sign...

Stayed here while visiting the university of Exeter; and the location is good for both visiting the university and for closeness to the town centre. Very noisy during the night - something to do with the bathroom pumps - so you could tell when someone was having a shower etc On the other hand breakfast was good Able to provide...
