close to the station
décor very poor - holes in the carpet, dirty paintwork, smelt of smoke, cobwebs, holes in the paint work, no lampshade, sink in the room not in the shower/toilet, stained seats, noisy clientele in the bar, food expensive
Near to Station
Arrived late on 15th Oct if I had arrived earlier I would not have stayed. Did not expect much except cleanliness and hospitality - I did not get either. A friend was horrified when I told her where I was staying because it is well known by local people that it is 'disgusting'. I was attending a funeral but if I had been on holiday I would not have stayed. Cold water on 16th and 17th improved on 18th - more people staying may have prompted water heating being switched on or the workmen using hotel during the week used it all up at 7 am. I was intending to ask for a refund when I paid but the money had already been taken from my account through Booking.com. Loads of nice B and B s within easy walking distance of station would stay there or at Premier Inn. It is an overpriced disgusting place - wish i had read other reviews but circumstances prevented it.
I liked leaving
Staff, furnishings, bed and being kept up all night.
STAFF WERE VERY HELPFULL
PLACE VERY DRAB AND WORN, POOR FOOD MENU, UNLESS YOU LIKED STODGE !
Excellent location to St Davids Station
I can't see why a hotel in Exeter of this standard should be more expensive than the same quality in London especially after paying for B & B & then finding out that breakfast isn't until 7am most hotels offer self service for visitors who have to leave before the start of breakfast.
Breakfast o k room ok staff o k
cheaking in and out times a problem as i arrived early to cheak in 11.30 and leave at 13.00 my next hotel in Bude which was much better value for money i could only leave my bags in the reception i also was in the room the longest distance from the reception why the place was not full and as i could not get access to my room with the pass card i had tro go down to reception three times to try to sort this out evenually having to change rooms the tv i could not get itv 4 so i missed the rugby
Breakfast was good and rooms clean
Hotel dark, dingy wallpaper peeling stank of cigarette smoke , whole hotel needs a lot of work to bring up to scratch
Excellent selection of real ale in bar.
Slow hot water tap on sink.
It was just across the road from the railway station and taxi rank . So very handy.
I had a drippy tap on the basin !
Dirty dirty hotel do not stay
Not a lot!
Restaurant was closed in the evening so food was only available in a fairly noisy bar. The furnishings in my room were pour. No chair and a very wobbly table. Linen on bed was clean but not ironed.
stay at a good value
receptionist not there, general lack of referbishment
Handy for St Davids station, good beer in the bar, relatively cheap.
Tired and poor decor, toilet in our room not flushing in the morning!
Breakfast was very good
The whole building needs a good painting and redecorating it is a sad to see it in its present state as I presume it was once the property of the Great Western Railway
The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good. The bed was very comfy and although the hotel was scruffy it seemed to be clean
The wallpaper was hanging off the wall in the dining room, the front wall of the hotel was damp as there was a big damp patch by my window. The stair carpet was threadbare which was a potential trip hazard. There was a handwritten note stuck to the back of the bathroom door with what looked like old chewing gum.
Staff were ok
Hotel very poor standered Not very clean poor decoration bedding poor hallways dirty
LOCATION GOOD, BREAKFAST VERY GOOD
ROOM A BIT DIRTY, BEDDING POOR BATHROOM IN NEED OF ATTENTION
Close to the St Davids rail station and a 15 minute walk to centre. Basic and rhumey rooms and hotel. No pretensions. Reasonable prices.
Fine for a Sunday or early week day/night stay but probably not so good for a Friday or saturday stay.
Cheap, room felt secure, next to the station
Very poor and dated decor with naked light bulbs. Gurgling plumbing & noisy road. Table and chair were the wrong height, so it was not easy to work in room. Budget accommodation could be so much better for very little care and investment!
excellent location,a minutes walk from station,shop across the road,15 mins walk into town centre.tea/coffee facilities in room. very good selection of real ales in the bar.would definitely stay again.
I was on the 3rd floor which could be inconvenient for people who don't like climbing stairs tho wasn't a problem for me.You have to be careful crossing the road when leaving the building but this is hardly the fault of the hotel.
It's cheap is about all you can say
Location was good, room comfortable, breakfast nice
Some noise from other guests
