Quality Hotel with helpful staff. Room very clean and well presented. Nice Pool.
Have stayed many times at Southgate Hotel however just a small point the lane swimming floats made the pool somewhat restricted.
Lovely, helpful staff. The décor of the hotel is very nice. A 5 minute walk from the Cathedral and the city centre.
Disappointed with the leisure facilities. For the money we paid and the standard of the rest of the hotel the spa facilities really let it down. Our main reason for booking this hotel was because of the leisure facilities.
The hotel was within walking distance of the city centre and the Quay, so you could leave the car and walk. The food was good, the hotel was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful
Always a reliable stay very central to town
Came back for drinks late and found night stafff no so helpful
Central location, Ample car parking, Friendly and helpful staff, Comfortable rooms, Cleanliness and quiet at night,
Breakfast not included in room rate, No large outdoor sitting area (only small terrace near major roads),
staff exceptional nothing to much trouble, especially Ben and reception desk. Clean, very friendly and welcoming. Good food and quality. Brill.
NOTHING TO DISLIKE
Horrible room,very depressing.filthy walls and bed head.needs updating and a coat of paint
Location was great - close to city centre. Smart hotel. Nice pool.
Privilege room was disappointing - a bit small and no bath.
the staff were very pleasant and extremely helpful
cannot think of anything at the moment
Location, decor, parking
The staff were very helpful and upgraded my daughter and son in law for their wedding anniversary to a very spacious suite which my grandson did not want to leave and he's only 2! Would definitely stay again -good swimming pool for the family and good public areas -plenty of local restaurants if you wish to explore in walking distance
I think the Rooms would be more welcoming if decorated lighter colours we were on dark side of building -just a personal choice and suggestion -would not put me off using the mercure
Check in staff
The atmosphere was of a very friendly hospitable place, welcoming and very pleasant.
The bar area needs a bit of tlc and uplift.
The Hotel has great confortable spaces for business meetings. Good breakfast. Rooms were confortable and with all the necessary amenities. Free WiFi. Good price.
Bathroom fittings were not very modern, could do with an update.
the gym was nice and the pool
The location for us was perfect and liked that we could walk into old centre of Exeter
There was no room safe. Room a bit dated bathroom had a drain smell.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Very well located.
Neighbouring room had TV on until early hours of morning - interconnecting door meant it could be heard easily.
the air con and the swimming pool. Also location close to centre of Exeter
nothing to dislike
Breakfast service could be improved. Forgot my kippers with poached egg. Then when they were reminded about it forgot the egg.

No biscuits with tea making. Just felt bar area a bit grubby.
Location Staff Facilities Bar Room Everything
Reception staff very helpful.
Staff very helpful and friendly Good location
decor a bit tired
1. Most of the staff were excellent - very helpful, especially Robert at reception 2. Superb location 3. Excellent breakfast 4. Excellent stylish décor throughout 5. Very comfortable bar area, stylish seating
1. Except breakfast staff who were brusque, rushed around without any grace or friendliness 2. Noisy young children allowed in smallish swimming pool without any time restriction 3. Lighting in bar area could be better if dimmed a little as evening got later to create better ambiance.
