Just come back from a really enjoyable few days at The Buckerell Lodge Hotel with friends. We arrived at the hotel and was greeted by Mary the receptionist who was friendly, polite and very helpful. Our friends room and ours were on the first floor, both were very clean and welcoming. The restaurant at breakfast time there was a good...

We stayed there for 2 nights and were pleasantly surprised by everything except the very long wait we had for breakfast on our second day.The breakfast room is rather small and we had to wait ages to be seated and then even longer to be served. However, that was the only drawback as everything else was good.The staff, especially the...

Stayed here for a night on the way to Devon, the staff were really friendly and the room was clean and looked great. Unfortunately it was so hot in the room (room 29) even with the window open that sleeping was difficult and in the morning we could hear all of the rooms around us waking up and even using...

Stayed here with my seven year old daughter and had a very comfortable stay at a nicely laid out hotel. Room was large, clean and had a fair sized bathroom and the front garden was big enough for my daughter to want to explore. Ordered our supper at the bar in the evening and no complaints, service was good, staff...

When we arrived hotel and grounds looked very attractive, receptionist was friendly and polite, so a good start. Went to our room, decent size, but not quite as big as we expected for an 'Executive double', to be honest it was on the small side! Room was just okay cleanliness wise, very tired and needed a good coat of paint/brightening...

Was staying for two nights for a wedding and only needed a single room. Chose this hotel as some friends were also staying here and made travelling easier, although I would usually stay in a B&B on my own. There was plenty of parking on arrival once I'd found it (postcode on Sat Nav sent me to the wrong place...

I took my family for a traditional Sunday lunch at Veitch's Restaurant in Buckerell Lodge last week and had a really excellent meal. The roast beef was cooked to perfection and the vegetable combinations were both unusual and great tasting! I am a real fan of Frangipane so my dessert choice was easy - this one with plums and clotted...

We stayed here as a small treat and to save the cost of a taxi home after a night out in Exeter. We were planning to walk into town but ran out of time and got a taxi into the restaurant we had booked, costing less than £5. Although the hotel is on a busy road into the city, the...
