Nice hotel close to city centre
Efficient and friendly staff and good food. We have stayed at the Southgate four times in the past four months. However, we have two negative points:
1. We believe that it is unfair to charge guests £12 per day for parking.
2. We purchased a 330ml bottle of water at the bar to take to our room and we were charged £2.50, we believe this is exorbitant. Most good hotels provide free drinking water in the bedroom.
In view of these points we will check with other hotels in Exeter when we make future visits. Also because of these negative points we would be cautious in recommending this hotel to friends.
