On Friday 16th October we traveled to Exeter Court Hotel for a little celebratory break. 13 A few days before we went to Devon, I thought it might be nice for my wife to receive some flowers on her birthday. Ashton, who is the events manager, Organised flowers and ensured that they were delivered with a smile at the breakfast table. All costs we managed over the phone. I am SO grateful to her ! SATURDAY We could not order the lovely salmon and scrambled egg breakfast that Carol had been looking forward to as the chef had no salmon in stock.... but ,what we had was very nice. Imagine Carol's face when Ashton arrived with the bouquet of flowers. Classic ! Lol Sadly, not everything was good . That night was disturbed by a boiler in the cupboard next door. In fairness, reported it in the morning and was moved very quickly ! We were VERY impressed ! Sadly, upon our return we found that the bed had not been made. I went to reception. Explained our concern. The receptionist asked if there was anything that had been left on the bed. Maybe an empty back bag but no sign in the room saying that if items are left on bed, bed will not be made. After a slightly difficult discussion she rang the manager. The manager I believe requested the receptionist to resolve the problem. Her comments were more or less that she would ask the waiter to do the job... ' But if he can't do it, I suppose I'll have to do it myself …... ' The waiter did come to the room and so all was well. The real issue was not the unmade bed but the negative attitude. So very different from the rest of the team. I have to say, the hotel is very clean ad the staff friendly and by enlarge, efficient. As a hotel, I was not over impressed but.... As a quality no frills Motel... It is EXCELLENT ! ( Always end on a positive !)

The Kings Arms could be a lovely place to stay. Situated in a quiet little village, this XIth century thatched coaching inn oozes history and the downstairs areas manage to be both cosy and welcoming whilst being surprisingly spacious. Sadly however, the upper floors and bedrooms are a serious letdown with dingy carpets and chipped paintwork on the doors. The en-suite to our room was basic and shabby with a shower that was quite dangerous as the water went from freezing cold to scalding hot and back again without warning. The plug hole was in serious need of ‘degunging’ as within seconds one was standing in two inches of soapy water in the shower tray! The absence of a loo seat and no shelves/hooks also meant that there was nowhere to place towels. The 4 poster bed was a bit of a joke - simply a modern double with four pine posts and an incredibly thin and uncomfortable mattress. On the plus side there were copious supplies of tea and coffee - but the mugs were stained and had seen better days. Surely a trip to Ikea or Wilko wouldn’t break the bank! Breakfast was included in the room rate but we weren’t able to partake on the first morning of our stay as we had to leave early and the hotel didn’t start serving until 9am at the w/e and were quite inflexible. On the second morning we found the cooked breakfast to be excellent - tasty and well cooked. However there was absolutely no choice - full English or nothing and certainly no cereal, orange juice or even jam or marmalade. Sadly, based on this experience I can’t see us returning to The Kings Arms anytime soon - a real pity as the beers were good and our meal on the Friday night perfectly pleasant. With a little tlc and some investment this place could be a gem! Live in hopes!!

Had a really good sunday lunch here yesterday. Staff very attentive. Food of high quality, good choice of meats and vegetables. The toilets were clean and tidy. Atmosphere in the bar area was good. I would definitely recommend here. Wasnt surprised to find out this was part of the Brends chain as the carvery was equally good as the one I've had in their Barnstaple hotel.

Check in was a bit long despite the receptionist being pleasant. The room itself was very dated, even though it's clear they have tried to modernise it. Room was also not very clean with broken furniture and mildew on windows etc. Floorboards squeaked too. I've stayed in far cheaper and more modern places everywhere else in the world including Europe and the UK. Not good value for money. A band B is probably better.

Huge thankyou to the Premier inn in Southernhay Gardens in Exeter for making us feel very Covid safe. Everything has been well thought out and again did not disappoint us. We had a plumbing issue at home and had to turn the water off so couldn't stay at home and Premier inn came to our rescue! A big thankyou to Lisa Clarbull who aided us with our booking. I have always recommended our Premier on the seafront where we live in Exmouth and will continue to so. Thankyou for looking after us and making us feel so safe.

The friendly and very helpful Staff , and services at this Travelodge, including free parking for up to 9 days make this an excellent place to base yourself in this glorious part of Devon.. The North and South Devon coasts are within easy travelling distance, and the beauty of Dartmoor is only an hour away by car.. Well worth a stay in this comfortable and affordable base.

Out of town. Quite remote. Very convenient for the airport - a few hundred metres away. Small but comfortable rooms and friendly service. Free parking. A good rest stop if you’re driving from London to South Cornwall. Clean, quite basic but excellent value. We’ve stayed a few times.

We stayed over for 1 night as a getaway from our home town. Didn't really know what to expect. We got the train up to Exeter Central and this hotel is literally 10 minute walk from there. Using Google maps we found our way there well. Looks old from the outside, but is well decorated inside. Car parking available. Staff were pleasant and expecting us. We were an hour early but our room was clean and allowed us in which was brilliant. Room easy to find upstairs. Slightly small to enter the room but room itself was a twin, and perfect for my friend and I. Had all the bits we needed for over night. Was warm and bed were comfy. Bathroom was clean to use. Shower was a bit slow but no problems washing overall. Towels in the room. Some noise outside but minimal for what you would expect in the city. We didn't eat at the hotel so unable to comment, but breakfast was available at extra price as we paid for room only. I would return if I plan to stay in Exeter again.

We felt welcome as soon as we walked through the door. After sanitising at the door, Steve, lovely man, took our details, ensured we knew where the best places to eat were, asked us to complete our breakfast selection, had gluten free options available and nothing, absolutely nothing was a bother. A B&B with a touch of love, it was truly wonderful. The feel is like visiting your granddad and having nana make you all of your favourites, making the room up for you so that it is cosy and ensuring a few treats and toiletries were was fabulous. Warm, friendly, beautiful and stunning country views. On our Anniversary morning, they set up a table outside with a fresh pot of coffee and had breakfast served in the crisp morning air. Again, nothing was a bother! Thank you Steve and all of the staff at The Grange Court Hotel for making our stay so memorable.

Charming hotel in the perfect location to have a little weekend away in Exeter. Within walking distance to The Quay, the shops and some excellent choices for food. We stayed for two nights, we are both vegan and sadly there is only one option for supper on the menu which neither of us fancied so we couldn't eat here but we had drinks in the bar on one evening, it was a lovely atmosphere and cosy by the fire even with the covid restrictions. The hotel had clear guidelines to keep everyone safe. We had one of the smaller rooms as no others were available at the time of booking, it was absolutely fine for the two of us, nothing fancy but adequate if your just there to be out and about. Breakfast the first day was fine, they adapted the vegetarian breakfast to suit us and the service was swift and pleasant, the same can not be said for the second morning, I'm not sure if they were just seriously understaffed but we along with most hotel guests were not at all happy with the thirty minute wait to get a cup of tea, we didn't get half the things we ordered, no drinks were brought, we had to go and get some water from the bar as we were given nothing! When you've paid over £20 each extra for breakfast you do expect more than a bottle of water you've had to get yourself so sadly although the rest of the stay was pleasant enough we have left feeling disappointed and pretty hungry for the two hour drive home! On check out the waitress mentioned right at the end that she was sorry about breakfast and when we said we hadn't received anything we ordered she simply said she was sorry, not good customer service at all. We will no doubt stay again but hope that the level of customer service and attention has improved dramatically by then!
