St. Olaves is a small, intimate, character hotel situated in the heart of the historic city of Exeter. You will discover the "oasis" of a hotel sitting resplendent in it's own Walled Garden in the oldest part of the city, yet only 400 yards from the Cathedral itself. The Treasury Restaurant, named to mark the fact that Charles II's coins
were minted close by, is open for lunch and dinner and offers both a short but
interesting snack menu and two and three course meals. Her,e peace still prevails and you will find it hard to believe that you are in the centre of a metropolis with the song of birds and the gentle flow of an ornamental fountain.
St. Olaves is an attractive Grade II listed Georgian mansion originally built in 1827 by the merchant James Goldsworthy. It has recently been fully restored to reflect the classic simplicity and character of the Georgian era.
You will discover that checking into St. Olaves is like visiting a private house without the formality of a hotel. Many of the original features remain, but the most stunning of all is the spiral staircase which extends through the centre of the building.
