exactly what I wanted

This is a quiet, clean and friendly guest house , everything I needed was at hand, and breakfast was great.

I would happily stay here again

Comfortably British.

My stay was very pleasant and fantastic value.

I slept soundly and breakfast in the morning was more than adequate. The building was classically British and cozy. I'd definitely visit again!

Warm friendly welcome.

Room comfortable and warm (good on a cold winter's day arrival), beds seemed especially comfortable. Felt it was a good, comfortable, relaxed place to stay. Only meal we took there was breakfasts, which were very good and just what we needed. Only minor niggle was fact that wash-hand basin was in the room rather than in the en-suite loo, but everything else was as good as one might expect in an old house full of character. We liked it!.

First stay at Southern Cross as I am working in Exeter but needed a short stay as I was only there 3 days.

I was upgraded on arrival at no extra cost which was a pleasant surprise and obviously welcome. I found the owners welcoming pleasant as well as providing good customer service. I needed an earlier breakfast than normal due to getting into work and this was accommodated for without hesitation. Good breakfast, good service and a very clean room which by the way was warm and cosy. Would definitely recommend the accommodation and will have hesitation staying there again as needs may require.

Value for money.

No phone reception inside the rooms and no wifi either.

It was fine

Pretty tea room with rooms over.

Plenty of parking but I was off season and I can see it would fill up in the summer with the lovely gardens. Room was ok would have like a little more space and the flat screen TV is more like a monitor but it does. I had a shared bathroom which was actually a shower room which was disapointing and contributory to the slightly lower mark. Would have been nice to have a relaxing bath. Breakfast choices were unimaginative but ok. Would have also liked a communual space to chill in the evening if I hadn't had so much paperwork. I was offered and used the tea room space to do this which was appreciated. The description did say the room was above the tea room but I didn't expect to be woken up by the early morning quests discussion about their plans which I could hear very clearly and the bed sloped a little but quilt better than in some places. I have used the words ok and fine and think this sums up my thinking it wasn't somewhere to rave about but it did what I needed when I needed it at a reasonable price.

Fantastic Southern Cross

Great place to stay.

The building is fascinating. The room was comfortable and quaint. The breakfast was a choice of everything with home made marmalade and fruit for cereals. Cooked breakfast if you manage it. Excellent for everything.
