Lonely Planet review
Undoubtedly Exeter's coolest hotel (staff wear converse trainers and low-slung slacks) the Magdalen is replete with funky flourishes. Lush purple corridors lead to dove-grey bedrooms, each with iPad, coffee machine, complementary mini bar and mood-lighting. There's even a tiny, heated outdoor pool that leads into an indoor enclave made toasty by a log burner.
Our independent authors have visited The Magdalen Chapter and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Exeter.
