I was on a solo business trip and found Devon Hotel easy to find, parking was great and the staff were helpful. I would stay in this hotel again and would recommend it to my friends and colleagues who regularly come to Exeter for business or otherwise trips.

Stayed overnight and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food on the Cauvery. Sadly, it is assumed that you want a dessert as if you want a starter in lieu of a dessert, you have to pay extra. Surely choice should be offered, it's not rocket science. Found the reception staff very helpful and welcoming.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights recently. Was disappointed by a couple of things the first being during my 2nd day staying at the hotel. After returning to my room after a long day it was good to know my bed linen had been changed etc. It wasn't so good to discover after jumping out of the shower dripping... More

This Hotel gets better each time we stay, think we are on our 10th or 11th visit. The beds are wonderful, and the shower is the best we have ever had in a hotel. Cannot find any faults, the girls on the desk are always pleasant and happy to help,

Booked at the last possible minute, easily found, spacious rooms and great food, staff were very helpful, our only complaint was the rooms were too hot, but in early March did that matter? Will book in that group again with confidence.

We have stayed in a few Brend Hotels and they are one of the most efficient hotel groups that I know. They obviously place a lot of importance on their staff training as in every place of theirs that I have stayed the customer service has been exemplary. We booked The Devon Hotel as a last minute getaway on a... More

The Hotel is nice, situated in a nice location. The restaurant is nice, but feel the Bar drinks are very overpriced. The room I had I felt was a bit on the small side and you do suffer from noise from the rooms upstairs. Slightly overpriced for what you get.

We went to the restuarant in the Devon Hotel and as we were given a voucher to spend we were told the minute we went in that no change can be given which saves being embarrased later if that is all you had. The service we had was first rate and the food (we had steak) was one of the... More
