Rougemont Gardens were described by one Victorian writer as 'a gem set in the heart of Exeter'. The same description could easily be applied to Thistle Exeter, The Rougemont hotel, an elegant Victorian hotel situated opposite to Exeter Central train station and close to Exeter St Davids train station. As one of the few hotels near Exeter City Centre, you’ll find the City’s fine shopping and many ancient buildings, including its Roman walls and 12th Century Cathedral, just a short walk away. The Hotel is located ideally situated next to Exeter College and close to Exeter University.

We have 98 bedrooms and Suites in the Hotel, Drakes Restaurant and Bar, Nelsons Lounge - a great place to enjoy traditional afternoon tea. The Hotel has the largest banquetting facilities in the centre of Exeter with 10 meeting rooms, the largest of which seats 300 people theatre-style, making us a popular choice for business meetings and seminars. With our elegant appointments and luxury setting, Thistle Exeter, The Rougemont hotel is also one of Exeter's leading wedding venues. Luxurious, comfortable and convenient – the perfect combination.
