Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 En Route visit
I stayed here on the way down to Cornwall. The welcome from the staff was very good. I asked for a quiet room and was put in a room overlooking the pond.
At night the only downside was the noisy air con, I had to put ear plugs in and the doors to other rooms that through design slam shut.
Breakfast was good and plentiful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hillwalker999 Excellent hotel for a southwest stopover
Stopped at this hotel en route for the West Country. I chose it because it offered good value and an ideal location near to the M5. I must admit I wasn't expecting too much, but was happily mistaken as this was a really nice hotel (seemed new or recently refurbished). The decor and quality was very good and the room layout was ideal. The receptionist on arrival was helpful and friendly. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the car park which was good. The bed was springy but comfortable and we had a quiet night. The breakfast was a nice addition but the experience itself wasn't too good. The food was pretty good with a good range and choice but the problem was the space. The buffet area was tiny and did not cater for more than four people in there at once. The staff were excellent though, clearing tables really quickly and replenishing food when it needed to be. Overall, an excellent hotel with good staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Babs46 Good value for money
This is my first stay in a Holiday Inn hotel - overall I was very pleased - the no frills approach was just right but the facilities were very good indeed. The only thing I missed was a bath - I found the shower was rather weak.
Enjoyed the breakfasts.
I appreciated relaxing in the room and being able to watch the TV.
Would definitely book with this chain again - staff very helpful

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Simon21 Comfortable and clean
Good value hotel, conveniently located just off the A30 as you come into Exeter. Room was comfortable, and very clean. Staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was self-service but the variety and quality was very good. The only thing that I could grumble about was that the hairdryer didn't work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trishkins Excellent Hotel and Friendly Staff
Very clean, comfortable and spacious room. Although full there was no disturbance from other guests such as banging doors. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. There was a good choice for breakfast and it was all fresh. Tables were quickly cleared and there was always somewhere to sit.
The only drawback is that the nearest place to eat in the evening is Barn Owl which is awful. Please do not go there but venture further afield. My suggestion to Holiday Inn is that they start doing some good quality, good value evening food. They have a bar and plenty of space to sit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dg2879 Good sized room, very clean
Couldn't fault the room, goods size (even with a babies cot in there). Nice and clean too. Breakfast not up to much - not really worth bothering with but then again it is free :-)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lesley69 Excellent reception
Speedy check-in at reception was much appreciated as travelling on own with two small children.
Nice to see decent TV in room with full range of Freeview programming meaning plenty for kids to watch and me getting a chance to relax!
Breakfast ok, though would prefer to see bacon available.
Room in good clean condition but would be helpful if a socket was available for phone charging when the sofa bed is out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DengueJoe Comfortable
I enjoyed my stay in Exeter. The hotel was clean and staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great as was the proximity to the Barn Owl (pub)
My only negative comment would be that there are no fridges in the rooms. which I think is basic in a hotel room.

Lovely hotel in a leafy setting. The room was perfect and the comfort of the beds and pillows excellent. The staff and facilities were of a high standard which is what I have now come to expect of this chain of hotels.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Andrew95 Good hotel with excellent staff
We were pleased with the standards of the hotel. The reception staff were particularly good - very helpful, amiable and, whilst being totally professional, were able to be themselves. The room was comfortable with everything you would need for an overnight stay. Breakfast was satisfactory, though there could have been a little more choice in the cooked food sector.
The hotel does not provide much of a evening meal choice - it is an express venue - but there is an excellent pub 100 metres away, which, on both the times we have used it, offers good food inexpensively, with a wide choice.
Overall, a very satisfactory experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fellsman Beyond the call of duty
I used the hotel for an overnight stay prior to the start of an ultra distance (100 mile) walking event. When I asked if it may be possible to get an early breakfast (4:45am) on the 'special request' section of the booking form I didn't expect the full range to be available. It turned out I wasn't the only early bird as others were up to catch early flights.
That's what I call service way above the call of duty!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Manbird Does what it needs to
Stayed here for one night to break the journey up. Did everything it needed to do for this.
However, the pub/restaurant on the same site was absolutely amazing. Worth visiting just for that alone.

Great Value for the money. The Inn is situated in lovely quiet surroundings. The room was large, comfortable, well appointed and clean. The bathroom was well fitted and again considering the cost of the room was very clean. Overall would certainly use this chain again. Staff were courteous and helpful.

our stay was on Sunday before May Bank Holiday, rooms where quiet, despite being not far from motorway, no traffic noise, staff friendly and helpful, busy at breakfast, food was tasty and plentiful and no queue's, would say the hotel appeared busy but as stated quiet
The pub across the way the food was ok as was the service

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TargetTrg Delivered a training course here
Not really impressed and will not be delivering any courses here again. Only really positive thing I can say is pre course information which was really good. Room was cramped, no appropriate place to have a projector without not using flip chart. Food choices for lunch were very basic. My clients thought everything was very poor. I shall be going elsewhere next time in Exeter.
