Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family enjoyed a month long stay in this apartment while visiting family in Exeter. We found it perfect in every way. Location is great, so close to Exeter Cathedral, the Quay, High Street and easy walk to the shops of Magdalen Road and Heavitree. The apartment is modern, furnished and equipped to a very high standard. The owner welcomed us warmly and provided generous food provisions that were much appreciated. We had a wonderful holiday in Exeter, coming back to this apartment after a day's sightseeing was like coming home.

The apartment lived fully up to our expectations. Tina is an organised, trustworthy and generous host, and handled all transactions with the utmost clarity and integrity. We would definitely book this again if we were to come to Exeter.

What a great place

  • 5 of 5

To get a secure, comfortable and tastefully decorated apartment with two bedrooms, two baths, a kitchen and living room for the price of a decent hotel is a great deal. I heartily recommend this apartment. We had all the essentials in the kitchen, plus a few treats and a bottle of wine. The concierge, Mick, went over and above to make our stay wonderful. The location is in walking distance of everything we desired, the cathedral, shopping and restaurants. I would stay here again without equivocation. The only negative is that it is a university town ad on occasion students walked past in the wee hours talking loudly. However, earplugs after the first night solved that and we both slept comfortably from then on. If you can find better in Exeter for even close to the price I would be shocked.

Beautiful flat

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 5 days, 6 nights in Exeter, in this beautiful, spotlessly clean, and remodeled apartment (we never would have known it once was a hospital). Tina was very helpful from day one. A nice surprise was the yummy supplies for breakfast and a light meal. The en-suite bathroom has an excellent shower and the second bathroom has a deluxe bathtub. Plenty of towels were provided. Beds were comfortable and there was ample closet space. The location is convenient for sightseeing (Exeter Cathedral is a short walk from the apartment) and for great eating establishments, transport, and highways. We did rent a car for a few days to see more of Devon and Cornwall so it was nice to have a parking space included behind the building. The concierge, Mick, provided great assistance, from showing us around the apartment to sharing driving tips. We definitely would stay here again.

Excellent host, 1st class apt. near everything. Close to city centre, Quay, yet quiet, private p

  • 5 of 5

A true respite. Tina, Nick and Mick were the epitome of the finest hospitality. The apt. is better furnished and more roomy than many ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ hotels but better priced. When we return to Exeter, this will be our first choice.

Modern, well appointed apartment in centre of Exeter

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 10 days in Exeter in this clean and modern apartment. The nice owner, Tina, who was efficient and responsive pre-booking, met us personally at the weekend to let us in. She had thoughtfully provided supplies for breakfast and a light meal. The apartment is spacious, light and airy. The en-suite bathroom has an excellent shower, and the adjoining bathroom has a deluxe bathtub. Plenty of towels provided. Beds were comfortable and there was ample closet space. A bonus was discovering a small gym in the basement (elliptical, recumbent bike, rowing machine, weights). The location in Southernhay is excellent being close to the shopping centre, Cathedral, transport and highways. We did not use a car, but parking is also available, which is a rare commodity in Exeter. Definitely would stay here again.
