We have stayed here many times,check in was as efficient as usual. Whilst our room was small (we always ask for one in the back to avoid road noise) it is decorated to a high standard very modern. The bathroom again is small but very modern and spotlessly clean the towels are beautifully soft. We had a good nights sleep... More

We arrived late Friday night - check in took a little time due to the desk being unoccupied. The room was OK - clean and comfortable but the bathroom was the size of a cupboard. The shower was feeble. At this price point, I expect much more. The service at breakfast was atrocious. Inattentive staff standing around chatting about DVDs... More

I am saddened to read that your recent stay was not up to the high standards we strive to maintain. I can only apologise for the poor breakfast. It is usually an excellent spread and other reviews will re iterate this. We are currently building a 20 bedroom extension at the hotel, each room has been designed with the guests... More

Very clean and comfortable rooms, quiet at the back but suffering considerable road noise at the front being on a busy roundabout. More like an up-market motel rather than a Hotel in layout with accomodation separate from hotel facilities and ongoing building work exasperating this problem. Breakfast very good but an interesting dinner menu including carvery ruined by tasteless undercooked... More

We booked this very last minute as we fancied a night away. The price was quite reasonable so wasn't expecting a lot. When we got to our room we were very pleasantly surprised. The room was VERY clean and decorated in a modern style. The breakfast was also worth the money - we didn't eat for the rest of the... More

We spent the day evening and overnight with The Devon Hotel, I must say the food was excellent the rooms we very clean and warm, and the staff seem to make it there business to make sure each and every one of us were happy all day long. For anyone wanting a Wedding Venue i can recommend The Devon Hotel.
