business stay

Posted 08-Oct-2015 on Hotels
I stayed at the City Gate for one night on business in the local area. I'd read the reviews and felt comfortable that I was going to get a comfortable room in a recently refurbished pub hotel. I checked in at around 6pm and check in was easy and I was shown to my room. The stairway to the rooms wasn't especially clean and looked a little tired which made me wonder about the refurbishment. My room was mid-sized with all of the usual amenities and the bed was comfortable. My bathroom was far from clean and had a layer of dust on everything and the towels had seen better days. However, the food at the pub is outstanding and would be the only reason I would be tempted back. The menu isn't extensive but it is really good and there are specials available every day. I ordered the barbecue ribs and they were delicious! The plate arrived quickly and there was a full rack of ribs to enjoy and all for around just £12! The chips were homemade as was the coleslaw and salad that arrived with it. Overall the hotel was okay and the food outstanding.

First time in Exetor

Posted 20-Sep-2015 on Hotels
The hotel was situated very close to downtown Exetor and the University - easy walk. It was very cute and quaint - the rooms were spacious for England. Only complaint was the bathroom fan didn't work and we were requested not to keep the bathroom door open during / after a shower due to the sensitive fire alarms. Our bathroom smelled a bit moldy after a couple of days. Downtown Exetor was within a block of the hotel and offered many cute shops / restaurants. Great place to visit.

Good hotel in the centre of Exe. Would recommend.

Good pub hotel. Air conditioning available for summer. Fixtures a little old, sometimes wobbly, but room clean and very large for UK standards. Some noise from pub (for about an hour on one night), but manageable. There's a door along the shared corridor which can be closed for additional quiet.

comodo per il centro

Posted 02-Sep-2015
Pros: posizione, camera tranne isolamento dai rumori della strada
Cons: accoglienza
In contrapposizione alla gentile professionalità di un giovane addetto alla registrazione oltre che al servizio del locale annesso all'albergo siamo imbattutti in un comportamento perlopiù scostante del restante personale: l'addetto al pub,della prima sera, ci ha addirittura negato la possibilitò di cenare al nostro arrivo benchè, secondo quanto comunicatoci al momento del nostro arrivo, fossimo ancora nei limiti dell'orario previsto dall'hotel e che ancora ci fossero avventori ai tavoli. Camera confortevole e pulita, bagno confortevole e ordinato, non completamente isolata dai rumori esterni: cercare di ottenere camere al secondo piano
