Great location

Posted 30-Sep-2014
Pros: Great helpful staff, large comfortable clean rooms, good food and service.
Location: Very central to the centre of Exeter but also close to the train station. Convenient.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I was only in town for one night and needed a handy reliable place to rest myself. The locale was warm and the beer and food allowed me to enjoy all of my meals in Exeter at the Hotel.

Convenient for City Centre

Posted 14-Sep-2014
We had an excellent one night stay in this hotel, en route to Cornwall. It was very convenient for an evening walk into the city, and the rooms were very comfortable. Staff were most helpful and accommodating.

Great value for money

Posted 25-Aug-2014 on Hotels.com
I choose to stay at the City Gate when ever I visit Exeter because it is central, clean, quiet and great value for money. The rooms are always clean and the beds are the comfiest I have slept in. The bar/reception staff always give a warm welcome and are friendly.

cheap hotel in city centre

Posted 15-Aug-2014
Pros: Location? Price?
Cons: Cleanliness, decor and attention to detail.
Location: City centre. Lots to do.
I had read previous reviews so I wasn't expecting a lot really. The stairs leading from the pub were very grubby and the carpet had several stains on it. The room itself was fine - decor very tired though - chipped paint, what looked like grease marks on the the walls. The bathroom was servicable - mascara stains on the wall near the sink and the inside of the shower curtain not very clean. It also had a stale smell to it. There were old paper napkins left on the desk in the bedroom which was a bit gross. Bed was definately on the firm side but some people like that. As a cheap hotel I suppose it was fine, but I wouldn't want to spend any more than one night there. We didn't stay for breakfast so I can't comment on that.

Can't fault our stay our room was spot on,staff very helpful with good service. Was a little annoyed that breakfast was from 8am as we had to be at the hospital by 7-45 but really we put that down to bad luck.

Convenient location ok for one night

Posted 14-Jul-2014 on Hotels.com
This is a renovated carriage house with a beautiful bar and extended sunroom and patio out the back. I would say it's a restaurant first and a B&B second. The "reception" area is actually the bar itself, which can be confusing when you check in. There is no lift, so be advised it's a long way to the top floor when you have a heavy bag! We had a large double room that was quite nice, but the walls are thin so we could hear our neighbors very clearly. Can't complain about the location as it's walkable to city center and right on top of a good restaurant. Ok for one night for a meal, hot shower and a bed.

City Centre hotel

Posted 10-Jul-2014
Pros: It was central and the member of staff who checked us in was very helpful and professional. The rooms were quite stylish, bed large & comfortable
Cons: The cleanliness of the carpets, the bathroom needed some deorating and a clean shower curtain. Should have 2 bedside lamps
Location: Good carparks nearby & Los Iguanas restaurant open until late & very pleasant & hospitable
Only spent one night here on the return from Brittany Ferry arrived late but managed to find a nearby restaurant which was willing to serve 4 people at 10pm
