Courtyard by Marriott has announced the opening of Courtyard by Marriott Exeter Sandy Park, the first Courtyard by Marriott hotel in the South West of England.

The 250-guestroom hotel is set in a distinctive location in the vibrant city of Exeter, offering convenient access to Sandy Park Conference & Banqueting Centre. Renowned for its beautiful surroundings and easy access to the coast, Exeter is an attractive destination offering a rich cultural and art scene.

The hotel’s modern interiors, complete with timber walls and blue hues, create a welcoming ambiance, and the artwork and carpet design are a nod to the hotel’s famous neighbour, the Exeter Chiefs rugby club. Guests have three dining outlets to choose from managed by Executive Chef, Richard Hunt.

The Kitchen & Bar is an all-day dining venue offering international comfort dishes cooked with the very best of local produce, accompanied by local craft beers and spirits. The View restaurant, opening this May, is located on the top floor of the hotel with unbeatable, panoramic views of Devon’s countryside and coastline. Local produce will take pride of place on the menu with the finest local seafood, meat and vegetables. The Match Day Bar opens its doors on match days, perfect for gathering for a pre or post-match beverage.

The hotel also offers three flexible meeting and events spaces, a 24-hour gym and a car park with electric-car charging ports
