We stayed recently for 1 night on a pleasure trip on our first visit to Exeter. We both have extensive experience of business trips and so have become quite particular/ fussy when staying away. We were delighted with our stay at this beautiful hotel. Friendly, efficient, interested reception , both day and night who engaged with us as customers and humans rather than just someone to be processed.
We had a standard double. Room was light, bright, modern and stylish. The windows opened so we could have fresh air which is rare these days. It was not stuffy or overheated as so many rooms now are. Quiet and comfortable with a large very comfortable bed. Excellent night's sleep.
Public rooms : beautiful old grandeur with many original architectural features.
Breakfast : Hot and fresh with good range of hot and cold dishes including cooked breakfast, granola, yoghurts, cheeses and eggs benedict. £10 per person, very good value and good quality.
Only disappointment was their Starbucks coffee we had in the lounge which was machine rather than barista made, oversweet and tepid. Please go back to making proper coffee yourself rather than rely on chain machines.
Everything else was exceptional and we're looking forward to returning.
