Oxford, United Kingdom
Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed for 2 nights and have to say could not fault hotel in any area's. Was greeted by a very friendly receptionist who checked us in early with no hesitation. Room was as expected clean and modern wifi was very good and you cannot fault the breakfast. Overall a very enjoyable stay and will be returning soon.

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. There is plenty of parking, you receive a warm welcome at reception and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms and bathrooms are immaculately clean, the...

Stayed for one night, have stopped at the premier inn close by previously but can say this place is better, it is new so very clean, but with 2 pubs close by and a pizza place opposite its ideal. Cannot fault it apart from my room being miles (exaggeration) away from reception. The pub next door is a chef and...

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

What a find! The rooms are super. I'm not sure how old the hotel is, but our room looked brand new. The room was spotless, as was the ensuite. A credit to the housekeeping staff. Tea and coffee supplied in the room. The bed was very comfortable. Although we had a room on the main road side, there was no...

This hotel is conveniently located just off the M5, which makes it ideal if you're planning on road trips around Devon or on the way down to Cornwall. What's more, the Barn Owl pub next door serves great food and is handy for a nightcap (although there is also a bar in the hotel). The room was clean and comfortable,...
