We stayed here as part of a coach tour of Devon and Cornwall and this little inn was just lovely. We had a large room on the second floor overlooking the courtyard. The bathroom was huge and down two steps from the room - very cute and with a good-sized tub. The king size bed was very comfortable and the...

This is not the most attractive part of Exeter - there are several 'late night food outlets' nearby. There is a bingo hall opposite - not that that is a bad thing. But then go through an archway and you are in a different world. This small, friendly, efficient hotel is a real find. It's not the cheapest of the...

Our tour company booked this hotel for us. We liked it very well overall except for the wedding reception noise on Saturday night. Happily, that ended at midnight. Our room was a good size and the bathroom was huge. The breakfast was delicious.

We stayed at St Olaves for 2 nights. It was 2 nights too many. We were put in the "apartment" ...what a joke ...it's a euphemism for a run down, substandard series of very old rooms away from the main building. No wifi for the first night, Luke warm / cold showers, no servicing of the apartment in terms of...

The welcome and customer service were good. I was very disappointed with our room (no. 10) - it was small, scruffy and claustrophobic; the sink was too small to wash your face in and a bit grotty - more of a £30 b&b room than a £95 er! Breakfast good and our friends room was better. Convenient. Will not return...

Very convenient location....we walked, pulling bags from Exeter Central railway station. Also very close to Cathedral square. An amazing, charming and very quiet boutique type hotel. The room was exceptional with a wonderfully soft bed and very delightful decor. Breakfast was great. Lovely dining room which made for easy conversation with other guests...always a plus when traveling. Excellent, helpful, friendly...

we stayed here for just two nights in July as we were visiting friends who live in Exeter. The hotel is more like a huge house, charming bedroom and very friendly staff. The breakfast was excellent too.

I was invited to a Christening which took place at the Cathedral, and the party after was held at St.Olaves. It was a beautiful day, and the tables and chairs and buffet table had been set out in the very pretty courtyard garden. We were offered the most beautifully presented canapés, perhaps the best I have every had. The centre...

Came here for a night and booked the house the hotel own. Lovely house, massive! Was very quiet although only a very short walk into town. Only thing was we were told there was an oven in the house (there is a microwave and hob but no oven), however the kitchen cooked our food we had bought for the oven...

Stayed here quite a few times on work trips. Nice hotel in what feels like a quiet and pleasant area considering how close it is to city centre. Limited parking but hotel staff always tried to make space for my car if possible. Hotel is in walking distance of main shopping / bars /restaurant areas in Exeter. Décor in rooms...
