Good stay away from boring chains
Good hotel that’s a change from the chains. Didn’t have hair conditioner in the rooms which I thought was odd and there is a student block opposite which has a lot of noise middle of the night

Gem in central Exeter
Great to find a well appointed , clean , characterful hotel with thoughtful touches and not too commercial . Lots of atmosphere in the bar on Friday evening . Didn’t stay for breakfast as I had booked room only - but smelt and looked great as I walked past on the Saturday morning . Will definitely be back .

Southernhay Exeter
Superb and exactly what we expected when searching for a boutique hotel. Excellent location, so close to the city centre but in a quiet spot. Reception also looked after my mobile charger for a few days, having left it behind. Would not hesitate going back for those special occasions.

A special place ...
This is a very charming non-chain hotel, that is beautifully and tastefully appointed. You do get a sense of being very special when you stay. Overall very positive experience. Fantastic bathroom area with the best shower I’ve ever experienced in a hotel. I’d have preferred a small fridge for milk rather than having to keep asking reception for it, but overall, a lovely hotel.
