    Marshmallow bed. Sloping floors. Loud air conditioning fan farm. Fantastic breakfast, rooms clean and tidy, staff very pleasant. Location opposite Exeter Cathedral is very nice. Watch out for significant numbers of homeless people in shop doorways and sleeping spots nearby as the evening approaches.

    Great location. Comfy rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Nice breakfast. If you want a room with a cathedral view, call and ask for advice before booking as they all vary even within same price range. Really well situated for exploring central exeter on foot.
