Manor Hotel Blue PlaqueThe Grand Old Lady of the Beacon

The Manor Hotel has a Grade II listing because of its historical significance to Exmouth and East Devon. It is not only the area’s oldest surviving hostelry, it was actually also one of the first built too.

Originally called, The Beacon Hotel, back in the 1790’s, it served as a Coaching Inn and it would have been kept busy both for its enviable location and because as the railway did not reach Exeter till the mid 1840’s horse and carriage was the only mode of long distance travel.

The Manor Hotel is not the only grand old lady associated with The Beacon. Once upon a time, her illustrious neighbours included both Lady Byron and Lady Nelson. And it has had its share of famous visitors too. As the Blue Plaque from Exmouth Society describes, Franz Liszt was a visitor in 1840.

Family Room at The Manor Hotel , ExmouthStaying at The Manor Hotel

Because of its long pedigree, The Manor Hotel is not a typical modern hotel, in which every room has the same shape and decor. On the contrary, each of its 40 rooms has its own character and charm.

Given its location on the Beacon, a few of the front-facing rooms on the first floor of The Manor Hotel have a few steps up to enter making these rooms not suitable for disabled access.  However, the unique character of each of the rooms and even of the floors which may be slightly uneven in places, simply add to the experience of staying in one of Exmouth’s oldest hostelries.

It also means that it is a good idea to specify any special requirements regarding access or special needs at the time you are booking your room.

Sadly, we do not have any record of which room Franz List may have stayed in but we are sure like our guests of today, that he would have enjoyed the stunning views across the sea.
