Located on Exeter's beautiful Cathedral Yard opposite the city's magnificent 11th century Gothic cathedral, ABode Exeter, formerly The Royal Clarence (the country's first ‘hotel') is our first ABode property. Following an extensive and comprehensive refurbishment in 2005, the hotel's stunning bedrooms combine quality and tradition with striking contemporary modern design that exceeds the needs and requirements of today's visitor.
Exeter is the hometown of Michael Caines, and ABode Exeter is something of a spiritual home, for all our beliefs about hospitality, food and wine were first developed and put into place here. Central to this is Michael's philosophy that good food is inclusive not exclusive and must be accessible at all levels, from the Michael Caines Restaurant and Champagne and Cocktail Bar, to the more informal Café Bar, lively Well House Tavern, and MC Boutique for gourmet takeaway.
Exeter, gateway to Devon
Exeter, the capital of Devon, is at once an historic cathedral city as well as the gateway to some of the country's most beautiful and popular tourist destinations. From seaside resorts to the remote grandeur of Dartmoor, and from Devon cream teas to Michelin-star cuisine, the region has something to offer for everyone. Regional food and drink, most certainly, have become one of Devon's leading attractions.
