    Overnight pit stop

    The Southgate doesn't change from year to year, it's reliable, clean and the staff are friendly. Everything went smoothly, the room was good for an overnight stay and the gym and swimming pool were clean and everything was working. The only slight quibble would be the lack of food available in the evening. The bar area only had a couple of people in it but we were unable to get either of the two meals we wanted for dinner. Opted for a quick nibble and going out into Exeter itself. Reception was fast and efficient and the on site parking made life a lot easier. Next time we're passing through we'll definitely stay again.

    Very enjoyable experience

    Well positioned comfortable hotel a great location to explore historic Exeter and the surrounding moorland and coast. Good breakfast (and good dining generally) with a busy, buzzy bar to come back to. More than adequate swimming pool and fitness suite.

    Room was ready at 11am to check in, 3 hours earlier than the check in time. Room was clean and spacious. Bathroom was modern and clean, great shower! Hotel was very close to the shopping mall, and there were plenty of places around to choose for dinner
