I stayed at the Lawnswood with some colleagues, we walked to the RICC, which was a short distance away. The rooms are small but were very clean. The B&B has recently been taken over by new management and I found them friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was great. We took a taxi from Exeter Airport to the B&B which cost £55,...
