In 1818, the Mercure Exeter Rougemont Hotel site was originally a House of Corrections, and until very recently the shackles in the cellar from the building still remained. Following the demolition of this building, The Devon and Exeter Hotel Company constructed this stunning Victorian hotel.

The hotel was designed by Mr Charles Edward Ware AICE of Exeter and was constructed by James Matcham. During the First World War, the hotel was used for many functions to help those affected by the war or for fund raising. More recently, the hotel has become renowned for being one of the most popular wedding venues in Exeter.

  • Stephanie

    The Mercure Exeter Rougemont Hotel was beautifully decorated on arrival and all staff welcomed us immediately. The hotel was immaculate and the food and drinks service was great. The stand out at this hotel was how friendly and attentive the staff are, we had lots of young children being a family wedding who had lots of energy to burn the staff did not get frustrated and made sure they were kept safe by locking doors etc! The hotel manager was outstanding and gave great service and nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend.

    I attended a wedding at this lovely historic hotel. The ambience was perfect and the food and staff made it an enjoyable and fantastic event - nothing was too much trouble. My room was both spacious, clean and modern. I loved all the additional extras in the privilege room. This hotel couldn't be in a better location if arriving by train and great for taking in the sights of Exeter. We will definitely be staying at the Mercure Exeter Rougemont Hotel again and recommending to family and friends.
