Once an eye infirmary, this statuesque building in the heart of the city is now home to Hotel du Vin Exeter. The fusion of traditional and contemporary provides a fascinating environment in which to relax and enjoy some genuine hospitality from the committed team. Stylish bedrooms come in a variety of shapes and sizes with a host of thoughtful extras and wonderfully snuggly beds. Cosseting towels, fluffy robes and REN toiletries also contribute to equally impressive bathrooms. The bistro is the venue for flavoursome, French-inspired cuisine, complemented by a cosmopolitan wine list. Public areas provide a number of options in which to sink back into a sofa and soak up the unique atmosphere. A spa and swimming pool are also available, housed within the secluded walled garden.
