Mercure Exeter Southgate Hotel

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Quiet location but only a 5-minute walk from the Cathedral & 10 minutes from historic Exeter Quay
  • Completed a £2 million refurbishment in 2015
  • Indoor swimming pool on site & free Wi-Fi throughout
  • Secure car park on site


Tucked away in a quiet residential area but still within striking distance of the Cathedral and Quay, the Mercure Exeter Southgate Hotel is well placed for business or leisure travel.

You'll be staying five minutes' walk from the Cathedral Green -- where a cream tea is a must -- and 10 minutes from the historic Exeter Quay, where waterfront pubs, cafés and gift shops abound. Exeter University campus is a 20-minute walk away (or a 5-minute taxi ride), and the newly developed Princesshay shopping centre is just the other side of the Cathedral. Exeter St David's station is a 30-minute walk, or a short taxi ride. Exeter Central is closer but many trains will only call at St Davids.

The hotel completed a £2 million refurbishment on its restaurant, leisure club and bedrooms in 2015. There's an 18-metre indoor pool, a sauna, a gym and a spa. The Gate House Restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner (reservations are recommended), and showcases local produce, including bottles from vineyards and breweries in the South West. A buffet breakfast is served each morning.

The bedrooms are simple but well sized, with windows that open, air conditioning and free Wi-Fi. Some higher-category rooms have views of the Cathedral and the Devon countryside.
