Very pleasant stay, staff very helpful and friendly, rooms clean and modern although a little small. Breakfast good and we had a carvary meal in evening which was very good. Only problem was noisy road.

We had requested a twin room but got a double room. The night porter who was most unhelpful tried to tell us that the room could be turned into a twin. They separated the bed by leaving 5cm apart and had the cheek to tell us that it was then a twin! No sleep at all the first night with... More

Just got back from a family wedding at The Devon Hotel and had a brilliant time. The restaurant served outstanding food to a very high standard, even the breakfast buffet was excellent with a wide range of hot and cold breakfasts. Bar staff were very friendly, big shout out to Lloyd, Craig and April who provided a great service behind... More

I had to travel to Devon for a family wedding with my elderly mother ( 89 yrs old, who is very immobile) . After initial trip advisor searches this came up as a possible. I sent many emails asking about access and facilities for my mother , and they were always promptly answered by Rose in reservations... a credit to... More

My room was very pleasant and 'split level' with a nice firm double bed and also a sofa. The free Wi-Fi worked really well and the television was excellent. Bathroom was very compact but very clean and the shower worked really well. Reception staff were lovely. Outstanding meal in Carriages restaurant - deep fried brie to start was gorgeous and... More

I have stayed for one night on business. The rooms are a little dated (with the modern stripey carpet in the corridors you expect more than a green bathroom suite with seperate sink in bedroom.) The room did however have all the amenities to make my 1 night stay comfortable. The staff are incredibly attentive, and polite and are the... More

We stayed just one night. The room was adequate, clean and the bed extremely comfy. Both the carvery and the breakfast were good quality and the restaurant staff extremely personable and very efficient. The hotel is ideal for a "stopover".

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a large family get together. The Hotel is nicely appointed and well kept, if a little stuffy in warm weather. Breakfast is superb with a wide choice of items available except in the case of fruit juice, which is limited to orange, orange or orange. There is ample off road parking... More

Had a small uncomfortable single bed. Tv didn't work properly had to ask three times for someone to fix the problem. The food in the restaurant was terrible. The carvery was well below average and the breakfast was poor quality and extremely greasy , the thought of it makes me feel sick. The decor was very old fashioned, wing back... More

I am sorry to hear that you couldn't find any positive aspects to your stay. the decor of the hotel is in keeping with the Georgian Farm house it once was. It is very homely, but far from old fashioned. I am sorry that you did not enjoy any of your food either, but as you can see from our... More

Stayed at the 'Devon' for just one night as we were breaking the long trip to Cornwall from the North for the night. The room was small but clean with a comfy bed, adequate for a short stay given the price in this area. We dined in the restaurant and had a lovely evening meal. Breakfast was ok but limited... More
