Exeter Self Catering, Exeter Serviced Apartments,


ExeterSelfCatering is a highly rated, ground floor apartment comprising a very large, open plan living/dining and fully equipped kitchen area with two double bedrooms with superkings or singles, two bathrooms, a private car park and fast internet. It is over 95 square metres in total and described by guests as "affordable luxury".

NEW - Take a Virtual Tour through our apartment so you can see what it looks like in detail.

We are proud that guests have rated our apartment as the best in Exeter, regularly attracting 5★ reviews. We are also a repeat TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner. The apartment is independently owned and managed - we'll personally greet you on arrival.

The Clifton Court apartment, which is furnished to a very high standard, forms part of a historic Georgian building, where the period features are complemented by modern comforts, including full double glazing and gas central heating throughout.

We hold both the Visit England/Britain We’re Good To Go industry standard and the AA/Rated Trips Covid Confident designation. These demonstrate we adhere to Government and public health guidance. We have a COVID-19 risk assessment and the processes in place to keep guests safe.

Our self-contained environment, with fully private facilities, is ideal in the current situation. You can walk to the wide range of city centre facilities, Devon countryside and waterside spaces.

Situated in a very quiet area of central Exeter, a short walk from the city centre, the apartment is located on Clifton Hill, a leafy Georgian terrace next to Belmont Park. From the outside you enter into a smart communal entrance hall with stairs to three other apartments. An inner door opens into the entrance hall of our private, fully self-contained apartment. 

The very large 8m x 4m living/dining room allows enjoyment of the high ceilings, together with three fully double-glazed, south facing sets of doors and Juliet balconies, making the space bright, light and airy and overlooking the shared gardens.

The living area is furnished with two three seater sofas, coffee tables and equipped with a 50” Samsung Smart TV, sound system, Blu-Ray player and Bluetooth connection for your personal devices.

The dining area is equipped with a table and seating for six, enabling you to entertain, using the extremely well equipped kitchen.

The contemporary kitchen, with granite worktops, is equipped primarily with Bosch appliances – an induction hob, multi-function oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier. There are a range of small appliances such as a toaster, together with various ways of making tea and coffee, and even a Nutribullet. There is an extensive selection of cookware, utensils, china and glassware.

A good night’s sleep should be guaranteed as both double bedrooms are at the rear of the building and come with luxurious hotel quality, superking beds (6ft/180cm wide), plenty of pillows, cushions, luxury Egyptian linen and towels. The superkings can be split into full size singles on request. Anti-allergy duvets and pillows are also available on request.

The main bedroom also has a double wardrobe, chest of drawers and a TV. The windows are fitted with the original period shutters. There is a fully tiled en-suite with rainshower, toilet, basin and heated towel rail.

The second bedroom also has a double wardrobe/drawer in which there is a hotel safe.

The adjacent family bathroom has a full size bath with a shower over and a glass shower screen, toilet and basin.

Guests have use of the shared garden and next door is Belmont Park, with a children’s play area.

Many places in the counties of Devon, Cornwall, Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire are within an hour’s travel time, with almost all less than two hours. This includes world class resorts and beaches in Devon & Cornwall and heritage sites such as the Jurassic Coast, Bath and Stonehenge, and many National Trust locations.

A car is not needed for your stay - there is a Waitrose supermarket close by, the city centre and Quayside are a short walk - all in all perfected located to explore Exeter. If you bring a car there is a private space in our onsite, secure car park.

We regularly welcome business and leisure travellers from around the world and hope you will enjoy Exeter as much as we do!

A guest from Canada in October 2019 said “Fabulous is an understatement. From pre check-in communications to pickup at station to intro to apartment and throughout our stay our expectations were exceeded in every way. Not enough superlatives to describe. Large, luxurious and first class doesn't say enough.”

Please note we are an established family business - fully compliant with national and local laws, tax authorities and carry business insurance for guest letting.
