I was very pleasantly surprised as the room rate was very reasonable. My last stay in Exeter cost twice as much and was less than half as pleasurable. Very handy if you're visiting St James Park. I will...

A delightful establishment situated in the heart of wonder Exeter. So friendly too. A marvellous breakfast which sets you up for a day of exploring. This is our second visit and certainly won't be our last. The first time we brought our dogs along and they were warmly welcomed too.

Spent one night there on visit to Exeter. I found Raffles to be a great stay. It's a large Victorian end of terrace with lots of stylish nineteenth century cachet, which I like. The room was comfortable, warm and quiet. Breakfast was copious with lots of choice. It's only a short walk from the city centre. I would stay there...
