In Exeter for the Devon County Show this is a fresh modern hotel with friendly and professional staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. A great nights sleep in the comfortable bed followed by a good breakfast that was fully stocked and a verity of choices. I would stay at this hotel again!

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...

What a friendly, well positioned hotel only a few minutes from motorway. The rooms are well appointed, very quiet with the most comfortable bed,.. tea/coffee/kettle and a bonus is a proper hairdryer! Cabs into City Centre and to Sandy Park rugby ground reasonably priced , only about ten minutes away. Helpful reception service. Highly recommend.

Staying here at the moment on a business trip, the hotel is very dated, the bar and dining area is soulless and dingy and consequently we have eaten out. The staff are knowledgable and efficient. The rooms are clean however they appear to have been styled some decades ago, they are basic and functional but they are not a nice...
