I'm afraid hotel decor, despite efforts to modernise, is just plain frumpy! Had drink in the bar and £35 for a bottle of nice wine was over the top. Breakfast... More

We've now used The Devon Hotel twice for small business meetings with a consultant who lives down in Cornwall and we're based in Bristol. So this is the ideal meeting place for us as it's mid point and close to the motorway. The facilities are just what we need and the free Wi-Fi means we can use our laptops. The... More

I work in Exeter several times a month and always stay at The Devon. Lovely clean rooms and full Sky HD in each. Staff always so helpful and food in the restaurant is tasty and plentiful - breakfast to die for!! Cannot fault it and I guess it will be wonderful in the summer too.

Really friendly staff. Room was really nice with comfortable bed. Breakfast was excellent. Stopped overnight after a wedding really enjoyed the stay with excellent features throughout the hotel and the staff were friendly and more than helpful. Food was very good and was hot and prompt.

Pleasant hotel, I was in an annex, but then don't know if any rooms in main part of restaurant/bars etc. One thing I really did like was the fact that outside rooms had car park, so one could park outside the room you were in (or near enough to it) and when there is lots of luggage (in my case!!!),...

This is not a city centre hotel but it is a very good location if you have to travel into and around Exeter because traffic getting into Exeter can be heavy on some routes. This hotel offered an easy route by car to the university.
