Great location and staff

Posted 24-Oct-2016
Pros: Staff and lication
Staff were incredibly helpful and kind. Hotel location was great. Bar was expensive like most hotels but lacked atmosphere. Grill and cafe very good. Could not fault the staff they really were very sweet, especially as we had a baby and we needed some help.

18th century delight.

Location: A stone's throw from the Cathedral, surrounded by medieval and Georgian property.
The 'Cathedral Lounge' is one of the most beautiful rooms I have ever sat in.

Old maybe, but tired? Nope!!!

Posted 29-Sep-2016
Pros: The staff!!! The location and the cleanliness / room comforts.
Cons: Not realistically. If you want modern look elsewhere.
Location: Great location: history, shopping, dining, entertainment and easy walking to everything.
My fiance and I visited Exeter for a nice romantic weekend and found the location and staff to both be excellent. The room was extremely comfortable, clean, very well appointed and all the facilities were top notch. The check-in and check-out process was great, even if the lobby is pretty small / cramped, and the staff were very helpful indeed throughout our stay. While there are (inevitably) some idiosyncracies with a property of this age and history - the stairs / elevator, lack of parking and cramped corridors for example - these have to be expected and the views and location more than make up for these in our opinion. Would we go back? ABSOLUTELY!!! We had a wonderful stay.

A hotel full of character

Posted 05-Sep-2016 on Hotels
We had a wonderful stay at Abode in Exeter. I have never encountered such helpful friendly staff. They seemed to genuinely like their jobs and went out of their way to help us have a nice stay. The room was a little small and it was a shame there was no bath, particularly as water splashed out of the shower's water tray into the floor. Breakfast was delicious and it was no trouble to arrange a late checkout.

A lovely hotel with great staff and location

Posted 05-Sep-2016 on Hotels
We had a one night stay over a weekend and enjoyed our time at this hotel which is a lovely building and very comfortable. The staff are very friendly, everything is very clean, the room very well equipped and general facilities are very good. The location is excellent being right in the heart of Exeter and opposite Exeter Cathedral. Only negative would be (and probably only concern those visiting on business) that the WiFi was poor and we couldn't get it to work sufficiently well. If you want a lovely outlook then ask for a room at the front overlooking the cathedral.

Fabulous location in city centre

Posted 03-Sep-2016
Pros: The fabulous service , staff presence and demeanour .
Cons: The bed and lumpy pillows.
Location: Great shopping, restaurants, water sports on the river, cycling and walking.
The staff at the hotel couldn't have been more helpful,welcoming and went out of their way to help us. Great room, decor and ambiance were perfect. The only downside for me on a comfort level, was the bed itself. The mattress was very soft and sloped into the middle and the pillows were terrible and lumpy. This said our visit was not spoiled by this matter.
