Lovely b and bPosted Mar 27, 2015
Very comfortable room. Shower when on max fluctuated from scalding hot to cold, but was ok on medium. Radiator burnt my leg and say on the toilet. Otherwise great

quaint and friendly but in mild disrepairPosted Feb 19, 2015
Pros: Friendly and helpful staff, location, price, "authenticity"
Cons: Proper maintenance and repairs would do wonders to improve the experience.
Location: Between the center of town and the hospital.
This old-fashioned B&B was located close to where I needed to be, and the price was right. The style is quaint and somewhat antiquated, the owners are friendly, but a mild feeling of disrepair is pervasive. The toilet in the room did not flush - and apparently it had been the case for a long time, since my insinuations that it should be fixed, were resisted. The window could not be opened - I discovered that it was held to the frame with a single screw. Removing the screw solved the mystery: the window latch did not work, hence, the screw.

Dated but comfortablePosted 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.

I'll be going backPosted Dec 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
This was a lovely place to stay and I fully intend on going back. The hotel was being redecorated, but that didn't detract from my stay. I felt very welcome and had a short, but nice stay. The position was perfect - being opposite a bus stop, and very close to town, without being in the centre. The room was delightful and the breakfast tasty. What more could you ask for.

Adequate but Could be betterPosted Dec 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
We stayed at The Edwardian for one night as we were visiting our daughter at Uni. The scores on Hotels.com and a Trip Advisor lead us to choose this B&B. The hosts were friendly and welcoming when we arrived, which was unfortunately whilst some building work was being carried out. Overall the building seemed tired and well worn. There was plenty of dust around, although that could well have been due to the building work. The room itself was large, although the decor was in need of attention (peeling wallpaper, dated pictures on the walls). The bed also was extremely soft and in need of replacement. The en suite bathroom also would benefit from an overhaul. The breakfast was efficient and plentiful, served by a very bubbly & friendly chap. Unfortunately the quality was not as we have experienced elsewhere (economy sausage, bacon etc and everything a little grease-heavy for our liking). Overall a perfectly adequate place to stay for the night but could quite easily be improved upon. We were not sure how it merits it's high score.

Lovely, cosy B & Bwith warm welcomePosted 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.

Very nice and relaxed B&B. Located close to Exeter city center. I liked the hotel, it had an old fashioned look and feel.

A Quintessentially British EstablishmentPosted Oct 17, 2014 on Hotels.com
The Edwardian is a quaint B&B. The front is being renovated; but once inside it is a Jewel of Edwardian wonder. We had Room 12 on the ground floor at the front of the house. Heavitree Road is on a hill, privacy is mostly guaranteed when coming out of the quite roomy en-suite bathroom. The room is beautifully decorated with Edwardian furniture and china and has a very comfortable double bed with sheets. In the bay there is leather sofa and a TV to watch. Tea making is provided with a teapot and china cups. Lamps are provided to make it cosy or Romantic to create the ambience you desire. Room 12 is also immediately across the hallway from the breakfast room, which has been done out like an Edwardian Parlour. Jackie who runs the B&B takes pride in her establishment and looks after her guests. The breakfast is really nice with a table of cereals, cakes, pastries and yoghurt too. A cooked to order breakfast is provided with a choice of eggs and toast. It is 5 minutes walk from the bus station and is in easy reach by walking or various buses to the main City Centre and Historic Quay district. Bus service 'H' runs directly from Exeter St David's and Central railway stations to the first bus stop on Heavitree Road within a moments walk from the B&B. We enjoyed our stay at The Edwardian very much and were made to feel very welcome. We would stay there again.
