Top choice hotel in Exeter
Image by

This grand red-brick edifice (once Exeter's eye hospital) is now part of the plush Hotel du Vin chain. Quietly stylish rooms incorporate aspects of the building's Victorian architecture (bay windows, cornicing, wood floors) into their palette of muted colours, offbeat wallpapers and Scandi-style sofas. There's a stylish octagon-shaped restaurant, an excellent bar and a sleek spa.
