My stay at Stowey Arms

Everything was good apart from dust on the lights and lampshades.

The breakfast was good and cooked to order after we arrived at the table each morning. Everything was hot. Good and friendly customer service. Very traditional ambience in the pub. Value for money.

There was no welcome

I only had one issue, but it mattered to me.

I arrived just before 10pm, but was too late for food. Even a slice of bread would have helped. I explained I had to leave before 8.30pm in the morning, when breakfast started, could anything be done. I was simply told "you best get to be early and get off in the morning then". As it happened, the Chef saw me in the morning before 8.30am and knocked up a breakfast in no time, which was very kind of him. I wouldn't normally complain.

Couldn't have been more friendly or more helpful!

We only stayed here one night as we were in the area for a friends birthday, but the owners were exceptionally helpful and friendly, going well out of their way to help us and advise us on the local area.

I've given other places great reviews for customer service but these lot top them all. It made our stay memorable and we cannot thank them enough. The room was a decent size and clean. The breakfast in the morning good. No complaints!

The pub area downstairs could do with a bit of a spring clean (particularly the carpet) however the rooms upstairs were fine.

The staff and owners were helpful and cheerful. The breakfast was included in the price and was ok (the chef was a nice guy and it was cooked well but with cheap ingredients). It was very good value and for that reason I would recommend it.

Pub area was a bit tired.

Staff we're very helpful and friendly. Room was big enough but the bed was quite small. The room was very clean with soft towels provided. Breakfast was excellent and perfectly cooked. For the price paid, would definitely stay at the Stowey Arms again.

Exeter visit

Room was mostly very presentable, however I spotted some dust under desk, & the cleaner had failed to empty bathroom waste bin.

This was reported ( waste bin ) to the evening manager who sorted it out promptly. Comfortable bed, plenty of soap & hot water & clean towels, although I think the hand towel I used was probably a bath mat . I needed to clean the shower head ( one of my usual tasks in any hotel I stay in ), I like my shower so expect the head to be fully functional, with even jets of water.
