Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DianaP Very convenient position off main road into Exeter
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.

The usual high standards for this hotel with the only problem being that the local restaurant was closed due to refurbishment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by puppymad Well worth the money
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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lazybones Quiet Location
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

Great nights sleep in really comfortable bed. Just a little disappointed with the breakfast. I would recommend just sticking with continental and toast.

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.

This HI Express is easy to find and get to. It is very close to a park and ride terminal so you don't have to drive downtown, and the pub next door, the Barn Owl, has a good menu.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by EddieR Nice Clean Room
Nice Hotel with good location, the room was comfortable and the Maid service was top notch The Breakfast area is small and can get crowded very easily, but staff keep all items topped up well. My only complaint is that the Barman tried to give me a Gin & Tonic with no ice & slice, sorry that is part of a G&T, he did get some ice but only on my request.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by IanQ59 Not as expected
We had stayed at this HIE previously & were highly satisfied with the location, staff and facilities offered.
THIS STAY did not match up to our previous stay for two reasons. The reception staff were not at all welcoming & did not acknowledge us either entering or leaving the reception area during our three days accomodation. Secondly, during breakfast, the dining area was swamped with business people, who were selfishly devouring all the food in sight, with single residents occupying a table intended for four, no one giving any hint of consideration to families with small children, who must have found it bewildering. On our first morning, we could only get seated at a coffee table, at the side of which, a Speed Awareness course was being orchestrated in an adjacent room. What has previously been a pleasant experience turned into a noisy chaotic one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BOR15 Comfortable and food value for money
I received a warm welcome from reception. The room was clean and comfortable, if a little too warm. Although there is no restaurant as such, I was able to order a Pizza. This was ready in 15 mins and was piping hot; it went down well with a cold beer. Breakfast was self service and did just the job. I'd have no hesitation in returning.

We have stayed here twice, both times before early morning flights out from Exeter.
The staff were very thoughtful and even made sure that we received breakfast before we set off.

As a IHG Gold Rewards member we were pleasantly surprised. This Holiday Inn Express Hotel was ideal for our one night stay, 2 adults and 2 children the room was clean, fresh, tidy and the staff were all very helpful. We would use this hotel again if we are in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cameraman2013 As I expected but pleasantly surprised at FREE Wi-Fi :o)
I stayed here one night on a business trip to the airport. Not much to say really as it was everything I had expected from the chain. Everything was clean and tidy BUT I really appreciated the free wifi as I had quite a few hours to spend as I was working by myself, why can't other hotel groups do the same?
I also enjoyed the evening meal eating at the local pub, The Barn Owl, across the car park but watch out coming back down the steps as it was dark and the lamp stand was not working. Although that's probably one for the pub, not the Holiday Inn department?
The airport being a couple of miles away attracted several late night planes which were a little annoying, as they woke me up flying directly overhead... Twice, but thats why I stayed there to be near the airport, so I probably can't grumble too much!
Unlike some hotels, I chose to leave the mattress protector / incontinence sheet on, as it was the breathable type not a plastic sheet with fabric on the top, so well done, other hotels take note!
Breakfast was adequate with the usual fare. I had cerial followed by scrambled egg sausage and beans and finished with a tiny croisant, black coffee and orange juice. I sampled just about everything, which kept me going all day.
If I am fortunate to get another job at the airport I would definately stay here again, but maybe bring some earplugs next time, as I am definatly a light sleeper.
