The four star Rougemont Hotel is an elegant Victorian building situated near the Exeter railway station, The Rougemont Hotel is the ideal base from which to explore this historic city. You can walk straight into city centre, with its fine shopping, Roman walls and beautiful Cathedral or visit the nearby Rougemont Gardens. Rougemont Gardens were described by one Victorian writer as 'a gem set in the heart of Exeter'. The same description could easily be applied to The Rougemont Hotel, an elegant Victorian building situated close to the mainline Exeter railway station. The Thistle Exeter City Centre, The Rougemont is a non-smoking hotel

Excellent location but rooms vary a little in quality.

I've stayed in this hotel many times before however on this occasion the room was not as clean as normal. Carpet felt old and was not particularly level in places, bathroom towels were clean but needed replacing as they were thin and d little grey. Room smelt a little musty on entry .

Perfect location but old hotel

This hotel really only warrants 3 stars and if it wasn't for the special offer we took, it certainly would not be worth the standard room rate. I know we took a 'small double' but it certainly was that and very basic. The hotel was a bit creaky and in need of decoration in most parts. The best part was the vicinity in the middle of the centre and we were also lucky enough to get a car parking space in the hotel carpark which were limited.

poor quality room

Tired room. Bathroom very poor with no heating. I have never stayed in a hotel with no form of heating in the bathroom. Heating in the room was poor. Thete was a small fan heater in the wardrobe that we had to use but this was far from ideal. It was reported to reception who sent someone to the room to say the heating had just come on and it would get warmer. It didn't.

Nice place to stay in Exeter

The Rougemont is a 3 1/2 star facility directly across the street from Exeter Central Railway station and within easy walking distance to the cathedral and downtown restaurants. The room was clean and quite. One note of warning. The lift/elevator only goes up to the third floor, so if you have any heavy luggage or a difficulty climbing stairs, make sure you request a room on floors one, two or three. The stairs to the forth floor are many and in one area, quite narrow.

Stop counting the stars

Great location. Beautiful public areas. Rooms small and simple, worn carpets and furnishing. Amenities befitting a 2* hotel, not 4*. Bedding did not even fit the mattress. Pillows and mattress were past their lives. Towels left on floor for replacement were simply re-hung on the rack. Requested an adjustment on our prepaid stay. Non responsive to complaints to corporate office after on site manager referred us to contact them.
