Dated but comfortable

Posted Dec 22, 2014
Lovely friendly owners and good service. The main thing that could be improved is the decor- I was in an attic room with very dated wallpaper and chintzy ornaments- not my taste! But otherwise, a comfy bed and adequate facilities. Adequate for an overnight stay.

Lovely, cosy B & Bwith warm welcome

Posted Oct 21, 2014
Pros: Wonderful breakfast, such friendly, helpful and warm staff, cosy and beautiful rooms, exceptional ambience.
Cons: The only bad points would be that the toilet would not flush properly (although it did the next morning) and the pillows were quite hard.
This B & B is very warm, welcoming and cosy and is only a 5-10 minute walk away from Exeter train station and the city centre. The breakfast and friendliness of the staff is superb.

Dusty!

Posted Sep 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
We spend only one night in this place and we did not like it at all. The room was big but dusty and it smelled strongly of paint. Took us ages to find the B&B parking. However, the location is pretty good.

Great breakfast

Posted Sep 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
This privately run hotel is very convenient for Exeter city centre and the bedrooms have everything you need - including tea making facilities.The freshly cooked to order breakfast is also a treat. The hotel is on a rather busy road so you do hear a little traffic but it is well set back. The owners are extremely helpful.

Highly recommended

I am fussy when it comes to hotels but I find it difficult to fault my recent one-night stay at The Edwardian. My room (number 2, on the top floor) was clean, pleasantly presented, not too small and contained ample drawers to go with the wardrobe. The bed was very comfortable and the fire-place & two-seat sofa made the room feel homely. I am a big guy (6ft & 19st) but the power shower cubicle was an ample size, even for me ! The control on the shower was very sensitive but it didn't take too many tries to get the water temperature required. I am always conscious that I may disturb other residents in old timber-framed buildings like this but the sound-proofing was excellent and, apart from a few creaking treads on the staircase, this didn't seem to be an issue - indeed, I was not disturbed by my “neighbours” and the people in the room directly below mine did not hear me moving around at all. The breakfast was very good (with a large choice of food) and, although the limited serving time (8am-9am) meant that I had to rearrange my itinerary, there were no issues with agreeing a late check-out. My host was cheerful & eager to accommodate (helping me up the stairs with my very large sports bag and providing me with plate & cutlery to eat an evening take-away in my room) - however his singing at breakfast was slightly off key ! I did not use the free WiFi during my stay. I may have to stop over in Exeter again and, if I do, I will be booking a room at The Edwardian

Quiet quirky basic b&b

Posted Sep 8, 2014
Pros: Very quiet at night; super comfortable bed; good wifi; convenient location
Cons: Shower didn't work (at all); no bathtub; room was very poky; no lift; no parking; breakfast times were inconvenient.
Location: Convenient for motorway, but no parking! Very close to a supermarket if you need anything. Lovely city.
Upsides: Very quiet at night- I got a great night's sleep here; super comfortable bed (if in a very poky room); good wifi; convenient location; clean room with nice decor. Friendly people. Downsides: I was emailed 2 hours prior to check in and told no one would be there and the key would be under the doormat- if I didn't have a smartphone with immediate email access I would have had no idea and simply found the front door locked. The shower in my room didn't work at all, and there was no bath as an alternative. There is no parking, and no lift inside the building. Breakfast was 8-9am every day, which I had to miss in order to get to work in time- overall not a great place for business travellers or those with mobility issues.

City-convenient, Clean VGBreakfast B&B Hotel

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: Convenient location for city & hospital. Good quality, clean, friendly, traditional B&B Hotel serving wonderful breakfast.
Cons: Breakfast is served between 8 and 9 everyday. Some people might appreciate a slight relaxation of times on weekend say 8.30 - 9.30 start on a Sunday.
Location: Convenient for city, hospital, university and buses right outside. We visited Cockington, Dart Farm and Brixham.
A comfortable stay in this traditional B&B, made us very welcome, hotel and specifically our room was immaculately clean and well appointed. Breakfast was outstanding. Parking at rear of hotel is limited but road directly opposite hotel is signposted "P - Triangle Long Stay" charges only applied 8am to 6pm. Very good bus service just outside.
