2017 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, Owners Direct Premier Partner

ExeterSelfCatering - Our super deluxe and serviced apartment is on the ground floor of a skilfully refurbished period building, set in a quiet residential and conservation area in the centre of Exeter, a short walk from the Princesshay shopping area and the Cathedral. It is very large - over 95 sqm.

It has consistently earned 5* ratings on TripAdvisor every month since first being let in 2014. A recent guest commented “We have stayed in many places around Exeter, but this is by far the best!” another that it was “PERFECT in every way!”

Very spacious living/dining/kitchen area with high ceilings and three pairs of floor to ceiling doors, with Juliet balconies overlooking the communal gardens. The dining area is large enough for you to entertain, and the kitchen is fully equipped for keen chefs. There are two double bedrooms, both with a superking double bed or two full size singles , and two bathrooms, accommodating up to 4 guests. High quality hotel contract beds made up with Egyptian linen and towels in the bathrooms.

We provide a very fast fibre internet connection connected to a big screen Smart TV/home entertainment centre and tablet.

Both bathrooms include a shower, toilet and basin and the full bathroom also includes a bath,

Furnished and equipped to a high standard to suit the needs of leisure and business travellers alike, we aim to provide great hospitality, careful personal service and attention to detail – by providing all you need, and more, to ensure that you have the best possible stay. But don’t take our word for it, please take the time to read our guest reviews.

Free onsite secure parking in a designated space is provided – and it’s easy to do without a car during your stay. Wi-Fi with an unlimited broadband connection is also provided.

From the outside you enter into a smart reception area, which only serves four apartments – the rest are upstairs - from which it is a few steps into the entrance hall of our apartment. The skilful refurbishment includes new hardwood double-glazed windows throughout, in addition to gas central heating each radiator with thermostatic valves. This ensures that you can enjoy the period building, with modern heating and insulation. The apartment is almost 90 square metres – the size of a terraced house. You will see care, quality comfort and attention to detail.

Throughout we ensure that there are sufficient supplies for your stay – this includes all linen and towels, full size toiletries, tea and coffee, dishwasher and washing machine tablets, and a welcome pack of goodies to start your stay with a pleasant surprise!

The entrance hall leads to a large south facing sitting/dining room (8m x 4m), and high ceilings with three double doors opening to Juliet balconies overlooking the communal gardens. The room is furnished in a contemporary style, but complementing the building. In the sitting room is a Liberty chesterfield sofa, and an additional retro-design 3 seater sofa.

A wall mounted 50” large screen smart TV/home entertainment system is complemented by blu-ray/DVD/CD, internet radio, bluetooth connection for your own portable devices such as smartphones etc, and a Dolby 5.1 speaker installation.

The dining area comprises a table and seating for 6 people – allowing you to invite guests for dinner. This is complemented by enough cutlery, crockery and glassware enabling you to entertain.

There is a desk if you need to work with adjacent power sockets.

The adjoining open plan kitchen (4m x 3m) comprises a range of fitted units with fridge, freezer, Bosch multi-function oven and induction hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and separate tumble drier. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking and dining.

Both bedrooms (both 4m x 3m) are at the rear of the property, and are light and airy. They contain high quality, hotel contract beds with feather and down duvets, and luxury linen. The main bedroom offers a superking double bed (6ft x 6ft 6in/180cm x 200cm) with wardrobe and chest of drawers, with an en-suite bathroom that contains a large thermostatic shower, basin and toilet.

The second bedroom also offers a superking size bed, or two full size singles, and wardrobe, and is next to the family bathroom which includes a full sized bath, a thermostatic shower, basin and toilet. There is also a hotel safe for your valuables.

Located 100 metres from Belmont Park, the Sports Centre and Golf Driving range, it is a few minutes' level walk to the Cathedral/City Centre, and a wonderful place to enjoy Exeter, Devon and Cornwall and the entire South West, with excellent road, rail and air connections. Whatever your reason for staying with us, be it leisure, business or a bit of both, we want you to feel at home, and have everything you need.

Before you book we will answer your questions promptly, and endeavour to cater for any specific needs you may have. We do vary our minimum stay throughout the year, although it is typically 4 nights – but do ask if your exact dates are not shown as available. We aim to give you all of the information you need prior to arrival where you will be met, and welcomed.

Normally arrivals are from 14.00 but we aim to accommodate any specific needs you may have. Whilst you are staying, we are within easy reach if you have any questions or concerns. On the day of departure we request that you leave by 11.00, but again if you have any specific requests we may be able to accommodate them. If you are coming by public transport we are happy to meet you at the station or airport, and provide a complimentary transfer to/from the apartment at most times.

During your stay you will find the apartment quiet and peaceful, but central and close to all facilities.

You can contact us at any time of you have any questions or requests, and we can be there quickly if we are needed. #exeterselfcatering

About Philip

We've been involved with the tourism industry, and been avid travellers ourselves, for many years. This gave us an opportunity to provide the sort of accommodation that we like to stay in when we travel - we hope you like it too!

Philip purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Philip chose Exeter

We looked for a long time to find a central, but quiet, good size two double bedroom apartment with two bathrooms, that also had onsite parking. Not an easy brief, but one we now know is appreciated by the hundreds of guests that have stayed and made kind comments.

What makes this apartment unique

I'm not sure there is any one thing that is unique - it is the the entire package. We believe our reviews across many platforms underline this. As a recent guest commented “We have stayed in many places around Exeter, but this is by far the best!” another that it was “PERFECT in every way!”

Excellent property in Exeter

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was large, well located for walking into Exeter and extremely comfortable. The living room is large with comfortable furniture, a beautiful smart TV and a fully equipt kitchen. We were very grateful for the milk, scones, hot cross buns and bananas left for us and the kitchen has everything you need including washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc. The bedrooms have large, very comfortable beds and the bathrooms are beautiful with an excellent shower in the en suite. Loved the big bath towels too! Philip met us on arrival and was very helpful. Thank you for everything. If you are looking for an Exeter property for any length of stay, you do not need to look any further than this one. We will definitely be back.
