About St Olaves Hotel

St Olaves is a former Georgian town house originally built over 200 years ago for one of the prominent local merchants.

A later edition was added as the vicarage for St Mary Arches Church and local residents can still remember playing in the garden with the rector’s children.

The walled garden has been preserved and offers alfresco dining in addition to a quiet place to relax and read or test the locally produced wines on a sunny day.

St Olaves stands out from the crowd. We offer the intimacy of a small hotel where guests feel that they have arrived in a private house but with all the modern hotel facilities. Our welcome dispenses with the formality normally attached to staying in an hotel, our staff provide an efficient but friendly service and we take special care of our lady guests who are travelling alone.

The hotel whilst situated in the very heart of Exeter has its own parking and a secluded walled garden for relaxation or informal dining. We are only 400 yards from the Cathedral and within five minutes walk of the shopping facilities including the small individual boutiques in Gandy Street and the Guildhall and Harlequin centres.
