Recent guest reviews

We stayed here in August 2017. Check inn was quick. Rooms were clean with all the necessary amenities. Breakfast was limited but good. Staff were not very friendly, but then we didn't have any reason to communicate much with them. Lots of parking space available.

Stayed here one night on the way to South Devon. Very convenient location from the motorway. Rooms are very clean and spacious. Comfortable bed and very good breakfast. Staff are very welcoming so it was excellent. Will do it again

Great room quiet and clean. To say the hotel was full the night we stayed we never heard a thing. Breakfast was ample and quick, location is excellent and if booked in advance there are some good deals going.

Clean and modern hotel, good value with a nice breakfast and good parking. Bathroom was adequate and the bed comfortable. Location is good for the motorway but is a short drive into Exeter city centre, I would stay again if in Exeter

Nice friendly welcome,room was spotless and very modern, a good,powerful shower, everything needed was provided. Breakfast was OK nothing special but adequate,plenty of choice, good coffee. A good choice for a short stopover in Exeter!

Holiday inn is a lovely stay for a night or two. Always found them clean. Only downside is the prices at the bar. The breakfast is good, plenty to choose from and included in the price. Staff are friendly.

Reception welcoming and friendly. We arrived early, but a room was available and we could unpack and make a drink before going to watch a soccer match (Exeter City). Our room was typical for a UK HI Express - twin beds and one desk type chair. The bathroom had plenty of room, with large fluffy towels. An excellent breakfast on a very busy Sunday morning, and just as good on the Monday. All the staff were very busy and efficient We ate in the hotel the first night - a restricted menu, but OK for one night. On our second evening we ate in the steakhouse across the car park to the hotel. Very good food and good service.

The rooms are dated but have all the facilities you'd need for a short stay. I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights, the heating had broken and the rooms were exceptionally cold. I asked for a heater but unfortunately these had all been taken. The food at the main bar is basic as is breakfast. There is a little pub just across the car park which I would highly recommend if staying at this hotel.

We stayed here for one night on the way down to Cornwall. The room was spacious and clean and the staff were friendly. We had a meal at the new Miller and carter restaurant that is on site. It only a few minutes away from the main shopping in Exeter A great stay

I booked a room for my daughter and her bridesmaids to have hair and make up done for her wedding which was held nearby The staff were very helpful on the phone when booking and when we were there. Even though this was a busy time for them, they gave us a room near to reception on the ground floor to make things easier for us as there were quite a few of us coming and going All interactions with staff were very good even though we weren't 'standard' guests all our requests were fulfilled and with a smile! I cannot thank Holiday Inn Express and their staff enough for this very pleasant experience of their hotel Breakfast was good too :-)
