Very nice hotel,only drew backs are, 1.Most of the staff were very friendly but a couple had attitude problems. 2.My mother is a wheel chair user and the only way into the restaurant was via a steep ramp at the far side of the hotel next to the delivery entrance

Stayed in the newly built block. Spotlessly clean bedroom and bathroom. Crisp white fluffy towels.Double glazed windows kept out any road noise. Manually controlled air con was smashing and worked well. Wish I could have taken home one of the beds and pillows. Wonderfully comfortable. A very good nights sleep Breakfast is self service a delicious. All staff were helpful,... More

Ensuite was the smallest I have ever experienced and difficult to use! The beds however were very comfortable and the room clean but small. The staff on reception were pleasant enough but not very efficient. The cost of room was not on the signing in sheet, there was no tea etc in room and the receptionist gave us two teabags... More

My boyfriend brought me here to surprise me with a trip to Paris from Exeter for my birthday. The hotel is in a nice area, the staff were friendly and the hotel was clean. Although it was a little dated decor wise, not my choice of style but I couldn't complain. I can't comment on the price either as it... More

This is the third time we have stayed here whilst doing an old car Rally. This year we arrived and saw the new block. That was a surprise as it wasn't there last year. One room for a disabled person was in the old block right by reception which we asked for. The other room was in the new block.... More

We stayed at The Devon Hotel for a weekend break on 17th July. After a HORRENDOUS journey - 5 hours from Leicester - we received a warm welcome and were assigned a disabled bedroom as my wife is wheelchair-bound. The disabled bathroom was excellent! Spacious; roll-in shower and everything we could have desired. But the bedroom itself, although comfortable was... More
