      Road Directions

      From M5 and A 38, join the A30 headings towards Cornwall. After approx. 1 mile take the slip road sign posted Exeter A377. Follow the A 377 over Ex-Bridges and continue towards St David's Station. When you pass the station (on your left), turn right at the mini-roundabouts and head up St David's Hill. The Telstar Guest house is located on the right, at the top of St David's Hill next to a mini roundabout. To access our car park take the narrow lane off this roundabout alongside our neighbour the Oakcliffe Hotel, turn right at the end and enter our car park.

      Public Transport Directions

      The Telstar is a 4 minute walk fron St Davids Station, and a five minute walk from Exeter central station. The bus and coach station is a 20 minute walk. Please feel free to call us for directions.
