        • Family with children
          6.2

          the central location was a major reason for staying there - our bedroom was also clean

          yes - the bedroom was directly above some air conditioners which came from the kitchen, were very large and noisy and were on all night, and our room was very warm even though there was no heating and the weather was cool, as a result we were not comfortable and did not sleep well

        • Group of friends
          6.6

          Good location for city centre. Room was spacious and comfortable.

          The staff during the evening, at reception were unhelpful. Also, we wanted to use the bar, very late at night and we were not made welcome.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          Hotel was very comfortable & the rate very competative. The staff were friendly & helpful. As my friend & I had come to visit another friend the surroundings where were able to chat were very comfortable. The location of hotel was ideal as we packed a lot in on our visit of 1 & half days. Would certainly stay here again.

          Only comments to make here that although I had ordered a morning paper for 2 mornings they didn't arrive although on the second day someone went to get one for me & no nibbles in the bar to go with our drinks - did feel that as a 4* hotel these should have been provided.

          the room was clean ,tidy and comfortable the location was perfect for the train station and shops..

          one receptionist was not very helpfull when we asked why as paying guests we had to pay to park our car .

          Bed was very comfortable and staff accomodating.

          When we arrived in the room it was cold as a tomb, and after some time, we realised the radiators would not turn on. When we called the front desk, they told us the entire hotel heating was shut off at this time of year (early April can still get chill in England), and there was nothing that they could do about it! For a four star hotel, this level of service is kind of shocking. At least the kindly night desk man brought us a small heater...

          so convenient for train station and friendly staff and lovely modern clean room

        • Family with children
          6.2

          The location of the Rougemont is fantastic to the City of Exeter

          The staff let the beauty of this lovely hotel down. We also found that the bedding was far too hot for the time of year that we were there (July).

        • Single

          Convenience of location opposite train station as I had an early morning train to catch.

          The Food. I had a meal in the bar (chicken and mushroom pie) that was very poor as was the cooked breakfast I had the following morning.

          I booked a room for the President of my company a month in advance and yet when he arrived they told him he'd have to stay somewhere else due to over-booking!! luckily he refused but they gave him a dorm style room with no clean towels. I now refuse to book anymore staff or future presidents in to this hotel despite there being an annual event each year set up nearby by our company. i shall make sure to spread the word as well

        • Family with children
          7.8

          The room was nice and the bed was comfortable

          The cappuccino machine was broken, some menu items were not available and the substitutes were not up to scratch.

        • Single
          8.8

          The hotel organized a function for people who were not staying in the hotel in the 18-25 year age range. Alcohol was served, the function lasted several hours, and the people were leaving the hotel between 11 p.m. and midnight. Some of them clearly had too much to drink and were loud, which is not unusual, but i am surprised the function was allowed to go on this late given that these conditions are predictable. Anyone who had a room above the entrance and exit area was subjected to the noise. I would strongly advise that you avoid the rooms just above the lobby, especially if the hotel has a late function that serves alcohol.

          The hotel was beautiful and even though it's still being renovated there was no noise or mess. All the staff were very friendly and helpful.

        • Single
          8.8

          Very good food in the restaurant though the service was variable - mostly sharp, cool and efficent but with some exuding the sort of customer care designed in the US and taught in Luton, which gets laid on with a trowel. Massive comfortable bed. Pretty central. Lots of space.

          The bar. A disgraceful lack of any decent beer - dull international brandn. Inappropriately intrusive TV screens and muzak. Service seemed to be occasional.
