Lovely place the room was comfortable, clean and very well presented. The staff were all very friendly, kind and helpful. The food was very good and the restaurant had so much character, as did all the pub. The only down side was the parking, there is limited parking within the hotel grounds, and we managed to park for the first...

We stopped at The Globe with another couple and were given a warm welcome. The rooms were lovely, well modernised, but this traditional pub has managed to retain it's original integrity, feeling cosy and inviting. Will certainly stay again next time we are in the area.

We stayed for two nights in November while visiting family in Exmouth and used the Globe's restaurant for a Saturday family meal. We got excellent advice during pre-booking regarding the size and quietness of rooms, from their helpful reception staff. The 1st floor courtyard room was lovely and warm on arrival, spacious and comfortable with a good sized bathroom, all...

This is a busy little restaurant/bar. Dogs are welcome in the bar areas but not the restaurant. We are regulars here because of the great food and service and the very friendly and efficient staff. We usually book so we are not disappointed. Despite being very busy we ordered quickly and got our meals in good time. The meals are...

Excellent accommodation. Couldn't fault the room in any way - warm and well-appointed with comfortable bed, ample space for clothes, plenty of tea, coffee, biscuits etc. Bathroom had efficient shower and large, fluffy towels. Parking is very limited, but only 2 minutes walk away is a large, cheap car-park with plenty of spaces in the evening for free. Breakfast options...

Stayed in one of the rooms outside the main building, it was impeccable. Very large, clean and well stocked with tea/coffee/water. Breakfast was great, very generous with the cooked meal and the continental was satisfying. Service throughout was delightful. Only downside was an early morning trolley rolling past the door (maybe serving the papers and wakeup calls?) which was very...

Thank you for rating the Globe so highly. It is so pleasing to read that you liked your room and enjoyed your breakfast so much. So sorry that you were disturbed at 8am. The only trolley noise that we can think of would be a suit case so perhaps a guest was checking out early. We do hope that this...

We chose the Globe for an overnight stay on Boxing Day evening, en route between visiting friends and relatives in Cornwall and Devon. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our courtyard room, which was pleasantly decorated, comfortable, clean and quiet. Breakfast was delicious, including fresh fruit salad, haddock & poached egg, and was followed by a walk around the...

Whilst on our way to visit family in Topsham we looked to stop off for a coffee as we were early. Not much was open then we came across The Globe Hotel. What an enchanting place... Comfort is minimal as to be expected in a 16th century building but great atmosphere, friendly staff and good coffee even if it was...
