quaint and friendly but in mild disrepair

Posted 19-Feb-2015
Pros: Friendly and helpful staff, location, price, "authenticity"
Cons: Proper maintenance and repairs would do wonders to improve the experience.
Location: Between the center of town and the hospital.
This old-fashioned B&B was located close to where I needed to be, and the price was right. The style is quaint and somewhat antiquated, the owners are friendly, but a mild feeling of disrepair is pervasive. The toilet in the room did not flush - and apparently it had been the case for a long time, since my insinuations that it should be fixed, were resisted. The window could not be opened - I discovered that it was held to the frame with a single screw. Removing the screw solved the mystery: the window latch did not work, hence, the screw.

Dated but comfortable

Posted 22-Dec-2014
Lovely friendly owners and good service. The main thing that could be improved is the decor- I was in an attic room with very dated wallpaper and chintzy ornaments- not my taste! But otherwise, a comfy bed and adequate facilities. Adequate for an overnight stay.

Lovely, cosy B & Bwith warm welcome

Posted 21-Oct-2014
Pros: Wonderful breakfast, such friendly, helpful and warm staff, cosy and beautiful rooms, exceptional ambience.
Cons: The only bad points would be that the toilet would not flush properly (although it did the next morning) and the pillows were quite hard.
This B & B is very warm, welcoming and cosy and is only a 5-10 minute walk away from Exeter train station and the city centre. The breakfast and friendliness of the staff is superb.

Very nice and relaxed B&B. Located close to Exeter city center. I liked the hotel, it had an old fashioned look and feel.

A Quintessentially British Establishment

Posted 17-Oct-2014 on Hotels.com
The Edwardian is a quaint B&B. The front is being renovated; but once inside it is a Jewel of Edwardian wonder. We had Room 12 on the ground floor at the front of the house. Heavitree Road is on a hill, privacy is mostly guaranteed when coming out of the quite roomy en-suite bathroom. The room is beautifully decorated with Edwardian furniture and china and has a very comfortable double bed with sheets. In the bay there is leather sofa and a TV to watch. Tea making is provided with a teapot and china cups. Lamps are provided to make it cosy or Romantic to create the ambience you desire. Room 12 is also immediately across the hallway from the breakfast room, which has been done out like an Edwardian Parlour. Jackie who runs the B&B takes pride in her establishment and looks after her guests. The breakfast is really nice with a table of cereals, cakes, pastries and yoghurt too. A cooked to order breakfast is provided with a choice of eggs and toast. It is 5 minutes walk from the bus station and is in easy reach by walking or various buses to the main City Centre and Historic Quay district. Bus service 'H' runs directly from Exeter St David's and Central railway stations to the first bus stop on Heavitree Road within a moments walk from the B&B. We enjoyed our stay at The Edwardian very much and were made to feel very welcome. We would stay there again.

Dusty!

Posted 21-Sep-2014 on Hotels.com
We spend only one night in this place and we did not like it at all. The room was big but dusty and it smelled strongly of paint. Took us ages to find the B&B parking. However, the location is pretty good.

Great breakfast

Posted 16-Sep-2014 on Hotels.com
This privately run hotel is very convenient for Exeter city centre and the bedrooms have everything you need - including tea making facilities.The freshly cooked to order breakfast is also a treat. The hotel is on a rather busy road so you do hear a little traffic but it is well set back. The owners are extremely helpful.

Highly recommended

Posted 16-Sep-2014 on Hotels.com
I am fussy when it comes to hotels but I find it difficult to fault my recent one-night stay at The Edwardian. My room (number 2, on the top floor) was clean, pleasantly presented, not too small and contained ample drawers to go with the wardrobe. The bed was very comfortable and the fire-place & two-seat sofa made the room feel homely. I am a big guy (6ft & 19st) but the power shower cubicle was an ample size, even for me ! The control on the shower was very sensitive but it didn't take too many tries to get the water temperature required. I am always conscious that I may disturb other residents in old timber-framed buildings like this but the sound-proofing was excellent and, apart from a few creaking treads on the staircase, this didn't seem to be an issue - indeed, I was not disturbed by my “neighbours” and the people in the room directly below mine did not hear me moving around at all. The breakfast was very good (with a large choice of food) and, although the limited serving time (8am-9am) meant that I had to rearrange my itinerary, there were no issues with agreeing a late check-out. My host was cheerful & eager to accommodate (helping me up the stairs with my very large sports bag and providing me with plate & cutlery to eat an evening take-away in my room) - however his singing at breakfast was slightly off key ! I did not use the free WiFi during my stay. I may have to stop over in Exeter again and, if I do, I will be booking a room at The Edwardian
