Stopped off for a lunch whilst being dragged around Marsh Barton looking at bathrooms! The Devon Hotel has lovey gardens and looks inviting. Lunch menu was varied and there was a great carvery with choice of two meats and all the extras for just under a tenner. My wife had a prawn sandwich that came with big thick chips and... More

Met an old friend for lunch given a nice table in the window. Had an excellent light lunch with good service. Excellent value for money. Plenty of choice and although we did not have the carvery it looked good.

Location very convenient for travellers and though the building looks a bit like a motel tacked on beside a traditional pub, it works. The staff were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Our motel-style ground floor bedroom, though not over large, was modern, well kitted out and the décor quite stylish. Good size clean bathroom, not just a shower and parking... More

A very good location for Exeter and the other small towns near by. The thing that stands out most for me is how good all the staff are. All are smart, professional and very friendly, I haven't come across better hotel staff anywhere. The bar at the front of the Hotel is also excellent, with plenty of space and very... More

Staff were helpful friendly efficient, the food was brilliant and the carvery is one to remember, delicious vegetables and large servings of succulent meat.

Very nice appearance from outside and the room that I stayed was very nice even though it was a bit small. Lovely bathroom. Comfy bed. A little bit noisy with the road quite close. But still a good nights sleep. Food in the restaurant was a carvery, must say the portions where to die for......look forward to my return.

We stayed at the Devon Hotel after a wedding at Exeter Golf and Country Club nearby. The room was a ground floor motel style room with easy access and parking right outside the room which made it easy to unload in the rain.
