This flat, overlooking the Cathedral and its square, can't be beaten as for location and convenience. It's within an easy walk of one of the train stations and it's at the centre of town, around the corner from the high street. Lots to do in Exeter, and the public walking tours start on the Cathedral square, so it couldn't be more conductive to full participation. This city is an under-stated gem, and the flat is a new renovation, in pristine condition. Our only complaint is modern new appliances that defy easy understanding; fortunately, instructional manuals are at hand.
Cecil House is very conveniently situated so you can explore the city on foot. The rooms are very nice, but be aware that the stairs are very steep and difficult to navigate with heavy suitcases or at night. We enjoyed our stay although there was a bit of a mix-up with the address at the beginning. We thought we were in the wrong house after we had retrieved the key from the lock box as there was an opened container of milk in the fridge, the rubbish bin was used and there were empty bottles from a little party in the back garden. As it turned out we were in the correct house after all. Great for a short stay to experience Exeter!
