Shower had good water pressure, the Wifi worked well and the location was excellent, central to all main Exeter attractions and shopping. It was also convenient having a restaurant on-site for dinner.

FAQs about hotels in Exeter








A Host of History

Set around the Exe River, affluent Exeter has played a part in English history from the Roman era to William the Conqueror to the Spanish Armada. Its most impressive structure is the cathedral, begun in the 11th century and boasting the longest stone roof in England.

The surrounding green is a popular picnic spot, and the half-timbered buildings and red-brick façades of the neighbouring High Street house a host of shops. Even more are in the Princesshay and Guildhall shopping centres.

The Guildhall itself is considered England’s oldest municipal building still in use, while nearby Parliament Street is one of the world’s narrowest streets. The remains of 11th-century St Nicholas Priory are now a museum, and there are more red-stone ruins at hilltop Exeter Castle (or Rougemont Castle), built into the Roman walls.

Exeter Central Station is behind the castle, while St Davids Station is nearer the university. The large student population means that the city has good nightlife, and some bars are located by the Quayside, site of Custom House. The river flows past Topsham and Powderham Castle to enter the sea at Exmouth.

To the east are Exeter Airport and the Westpoint Arena exhibition centre, both easily reached from Booking.com’s hotels with spas, cheap apartments and guest houses with parking.

    I have booked and stayed with HI for the last 14 years. You know what you are going to get. Its consistently good and the rooms are regularly updated. Always so very clean. Beds are great. Breakfast was so so good. best yet in fact. Staff were tidy and friendly and could not help us enough. We did not want to book out.....a real treat and the icing on the cake THEY ACCEPT DOGS. Why on earth hotels dont allow dogs is beyond me. A huge thank you to all at this hotel.

    A trip to the cathedral is well worth it, fantastic architecture. We did the tunnels well worth doing a great guide and tour. Exeter has a lot to offer. Pubs and eateries. The Quay is well worth a visit The Prospect Pub does great food and drink. Walk along the canal very peaceful

    Exeter is a lovely place , however, if driiving it is a nightmare lots of one way streets nowhere to stop if lost , almost no on street parking (unless a payment machine is there ) this is especially frustrating if visiting the royal hospital as the car park cannot cope , and all the surrounding roads are double yellow lines , many people driving around in circles missing appointments and getting angry.

    Exeter quay is vibrant, attractive and a lovely area to visit. We walked along the canal whilst others paddled to a lovely pub called double locks. Lunch was excellent at the pub. Evening at local gin distillery- quayside gins which again was excellent. Only stayed one night but would highly recommend.

    Great location in Exeter; a short walk from the town centre and a Vue Cinema within a few feet. The hotel is super clean and airy and the rooms are a good size. The breakfast was superb. The best thing about the hotel is the staff, everyone so happy and enjoying their jobs. Nothing was too much trouble and all staff genuinely enjoyed being at work and supporting others.

    There's much to like about St. Andrews Hotel starting with the FREE parking and the proximity to Exeter City Centre with it only taking just over 15 minutes to walk in. The hotel itself is very untypical of an independent city hotel in that it is clearly well maintained and in no way looks tired as many do nowadays.
