Friendly hotel staff . Room was small but had everything you needed for a short break. Great location for driving around south Devon close to all A roads and motorways. Would stay again Not practical if you don't drive as too far away from Exeter but costs around £12 to get a taxi in.

The Devon Hotel was our second of two hotels that we stayed at on a recent visit to the South West of England. This hotel has recently had a modern extension and my colleagues and I were lucky enough to be placed in a series of the new rooms. My room had a new, modern and clean plush white bathroom... More

Stayed for one night. Check in was faultless. The staff were very helpful The room quality was very good, clean comfortable, the bathroom was of a very high standard.

We stopped off here en route to our holiday cottage. We found this hotel online, having found all the Premier Inn's and Travelodge's booked or asking £120+ a night. I'm so glad we found it. It was a really smart and a cool place to stay. We stopped in the refurbished Exec rooms (great shower, flat TV, nicely decorated) overall... More

We stayed here one night en route to Cornwall with our dobie pup, Riba. Lots to commend this hotel. The benefits are helpful staff, very good food, compact modern rooms, well equipped, small gym, located close to park and ride for Exeter and easy drive to countryside and country pubs. The big disbenefit is the road noise, all night from... More

A very clean hotel with a good Buffet style breakfast, the rooms are basic but comportable it is within easy reach of Exceter and has a Park and Ride, we had trouble with our AC but it was fixed very quickly, we would recommend for an overnight stay.

This review is a mixed one but overall we were disappointed with the hotel and restaurant. Our room was not clean, I'm not sure the last time some of the surfaces were dusted! The room itself was a good size and having a sofa to sit on was a real positive but the bathroom was so small it was difficult... More
