Country hide away
The history of castle, the thatched cottages was so picturesque ,the setting just off the main road into Exeter city was an ideal location to drive to all parts of Devon , but the only thing that needs changing would be the hotels definition of a continental breakfast sweet roles croissants ham cheese ,which was not available ,there was toast white or brown bread some yogurts.

Quirky place to stay
Stayed for 2 nights with my daughter. Room situated right next to reception, therefore could hear all conversations outside. Although not the most expensive place to stay in the area, did expect better for price. Carpets tired and in need of thorough clean. Needed to leave room and cross hallway to bathroom where others also had access and was periodically used by others staying upstairs. Water from shower tepid, with bathroom in general need of cleaning- removed 8 spiders on arrival but could not reach the other 9. Also when daughter went to play in designated play area, warned off by caged growling dog in the play area.
Breakfast was nice although some confusion as to whether you were entitled to a cooked breakfast or not.
In general, a quirky place to stay but in need of attention to cleanliness and general wear and tear.

Very expensive for a tired and dated room with no bathroom
The room was booked in part because I was travelling down to Exeter on business and part because my wife wanted to visit a friend in Tiverton, and at the last minute my son decided to join us! So I booked the family room at the Bickleigh as it was only one of two hotels available with a family room in the area.
On arrival we struggled to find somebody to check us in and when we did she obviously didn’t like the look of my 12 year old son, eyeing him with some suspicion. The room itself turned out to be a very tired and dated cottage conversion and NO bathroom, despite the booking being for an en-suit, for which the hotel were entirely unapologetic. Had there been more than the three of us, it could have been a real pain with four rooms each with three beds; a potential 12 people sharing one very dated and tired bathroom!
Diner didn’t appear to be an option and there didn’t appear to be anybody available to ask so we ate at a very nice local pub.
Breakfast was a merger affair, in what appeared to be the family dining room; not a comfortable experience and so we decided to make a move as quickly as possible and leave. Sadly half way through checking out the hotelier wandered off and was never seen again. It wasn’t until 15 minutes later when a member of staff arrived for work that I could actually finish paying and leave.
For £140 a very disappointing stay and definitely not somewhere I would stay at again.
