Exeter has a superb portfolio of holiday properties ranging from budget accommodation to boutiques with tonnes of character and historic buildings that are fully integrated with the city’s rich heritage. Exeter is a small city which makes navigating around relatively easy. It is a student city which means that it is a truly vibrant and interesting place to be.
Spa treatments and leisure activities
Like most city centres, Exeter has a wide range of hotels and accommodation options to suit every need and budget. If you’re looking for somewhere to host a corporate event, you’ll find several options offering delegate packages with all the facilities you could want or if you’re looking for somewhere to relax after a day of exploring and partying you’re in luck as there are a range of spa hotels with treatments and luxury rooms to make you feel well rested before your return home. Why not have the best of both worlds by choosing a small boutique hotel for your stay and booking into the spa of a neighbouring property to take advantage of their facilities and treatments? The spas in Exeter are great for groups getting together for hen parties or special occasions or just for the solo traveller wanting a little R&R.
Exeter is well known across the south west for its arts scene and extensive events calendar. It has grown in popularity as a venue for top music performances and sporting events alongside the galleries and museums that host exhibitions from across the world. As you would expect from a city, Exeter is a haven for those looking for some retail therapy. You’ll find the award-winning Princesshay in the city centre, the high street running alongside it and the Cathedral Quarter where you can browse smaller, independent stores while indulging in the historic atmosphere of this part of the city. Fore Street is the place to be for more unusual gifts and of course, the Quay has its own shopping area. There are accommodation options littered around these streets, so should you need to return to drop off your bags and head out for more, you won’t have to walk too far.
Whether you are in town for a concert, some sight seeing or a spot of shopping, make sure to have a comfortable night’s sleep with one of the many properties in and around the city centre. For those of you on a budget, you don’t have to sacrifice on comfort or luxury as there is many a deal to be had.
An oasis of calm
If you want a calm and tranquil place to stay, don’t overlook Exeter because it’s a city. Staying in one of the properties towards the outskirts of the city will give you easy access to the bustling centre whilst allowing you to relax in peace and quiet. Similarly, the city’s side streets have several hotels so you can stay central without having to be in the midst of it all.
Whatever accommodation best suits your needs, you can be sure of a memorable time in Exeter.
