Good hotel with parking close to city centre
Hotel is easy to reach from the M5 without driving through centre of Exeter, and there is plenty of space for parking. It took about 10 minutes to walk into the city using the footbridge over the River Exe and canal. The staff were extremely helpful and the cooked breakfast was excellent, all freshly cooked to order and very hot. Well furnished attractive dining room.
Our room was right at the top(no lift), and in the mornings the sun shone directly into our eyes. There was a fan which we used once or twice to cool down. I imagine this room would be very hot in the summer. There wasn't much space because we had requested a triple room so there was an extra folding bed as well as 2 single beds. The beds were very comfortable, though the bedding looked a bit 'tired'. There was a small but adequate bathroom with shower and plenty of hot water.
Alphington Road is very busy during the morning and evening rush hours, but the noise of the traffic did not bother us.
