do not believe a word from their brochure/web site as you actually look out at one of the largest trading estates in the country and the hotel is situated on the busiest roundabout in the south-west .Constant traffic noise ,vehicles accelerating away and dust and fumes. Food is quantity over quality with limited (1) vegetarian option. So bad we cut... More

Extreme road noise and thin walls. Don't expect much sleep steps up or down to the rooms the bathroom was probably the nicest part of the room all be it very compact. The room got very hot but you couldn't open the windows because of the road noise

I love the carvery! I love Carridges, I love the staff. Let me explain it looks grand you walk up the steps into the doors where you are greeted. You might have to wait to be seated but you are never ignored. When you go to the bar or are waited on it is polite and helpfull. I have never... More

My husband and I stayed here as I organised a Charity Ball at the Devon Hotel. They are first class for any event and I would not trust anyone else to support me in doing this. The rooms are lovely and have recently been refurbished, most do have steps in them to go up or down to the bathroom so... More

Poor service. Rude waiter. "Air conditioning"means a portable unit and putting a hose out of the window. Not value for money, and could not recommend. All in all a very disappointing experience. Travelodge would be better value.

Thank you for your comments from your recent stay with us. I am disappointed to hear that it wasn't up to the high standards we strive to maintain. During the recent hot weather we have put portable air conditioning units in the most affected rooms. Although a bit cumbersome most guests have welcomed them. They have all been removed from...

Good location for Matford and the business parks and employers there. Friendly staff. Rooms quite small with access to bathroom awkward with steps. Clean place. Sometimes a bit noisy as between rooms. Lovely breakfast. Overall a nice, convenient place to stay but not exceptional.( No facilities like swimming pool/gym etc.) Wi-fi worked OK-just about. Parking was always available. Tea and... More

When staying in Exter on business (that tends to be monthly) I always stay at The Devon Hotel. A few years ago I stayed at various hotels in the area searching for one that had all my requirements and eventually found this one. The others were okay but all had some sort of problem. For example, they may have been... More

It is a long time since I visited this restaurant and I must say, it hasn't changed a bit. Literally, upon entering it was very dark and took a while for me to adjust to the low light. The restaurant is pleasant enough but in need of an upgrade. Those dark curtains really sap the light and are so old... More

The hotel was comfortable and warm and the staff were friendly. I stayed for one night, but would be happy to stay for longer periods. However, at breakfast I had to remind the waiter that I hadn't received my tea and toast; I had been waiting for 15 minutes. That aside, the food was plentiful and well cooked. I was... More
