Convenient locaton for Exeter and routes south. The rooms clean but shabby. In forty years of international travelling the en-suite bathrooms are the smallest I have ever seen. I was amazed. Between the loo , handbasin and bath there is a floor space of six 250mm tiles to stand ! If you are a large person you would have difficulty... More

A clean, comfortable hotel. Slightly disjointed layout that could be improved with signage. pleasant staff & reasonable food. My room was on the ground floor & the occupant above rose early, very early! Luckily I also had an early start so it wasn't a problem. Hotel was exactly what was required: good value & comfortable.

Stayed here for 5 nights hotel is really nice and modern. The road noise is very loud which is a bit of an issue if you are a light sleeper so I would make sure you request a room at the back of the hotel. Staff are always friendly and professional. New rooms are just being built so I would... More

Hotel was very nice and well kept. We stayed for 1 night on our way to St.Ives. Food was good, staff were very helpful. Rooms were a little warm and WiFi did not work too well but all in all we had a good time and would recommend this hotel to others.

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

Thank you for your comments. Our dinner menu offers a choice of vegetarian starters and main courses at least 4, we do offer generous portions but our emphasis is always on quality produce as most of the other reviews will show. Kind regards Ross Hamilton Hotel Manager 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

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...
