Despite being exceptionally busy in the pre-Christmas period, the hotel provided us with a splendid three-day break, particularly in the quality of food and exceptional service throughout. In fact, just what you would expect from a Brend Hotel! Being so close to the park and ride was an added bonus.

With the usual dread of mass catering, I attended my partner's Firm's Christmas Party at The Devon Hotel a few days ago. To my horror there seemed to be hundreds of people there in different parties on two floors. I wondered if I should get a taxi home! We sat and chatted and bang on time the starters were served...

We had a lovely Christmas lunch last year, unfortunately this year will be memorable but for the wrong reasons. I understand its a busy time of year but the service and standard of food was not the best. Our table was booked for 12.30, when we arrived the table and place mats were all sticky. The meat on the cavery... More

Our Son was married here on Friday. The service was lovely. It took place in the Edwardian suite and the room was decorated beautifully! The reception after was a sit down pre ordered meal of roast turkey or beef followed by a choice of lovely deserts. The vegetables were cooked to perfection. There was space for the little ones to...

Visited here Sunday 16th November 2014 Location: Handy for Marsh Barton business park, shopping, market, or auction. But not really a scenic venue. Score 6/10 Venue: Beautiful Georgian Hotel. Nice restaurant, bar, and other rooms to dine in all tastefully decorated and with a good lively atmosphere. Very good facilities. Score 10/10 Staff: Well turned out, friendly, welcoming, attentive and... More

We stayed only one night and didn't eat in the adjoining dining room, but I thought this hotel to be very clean and the bedroom furniture in good comfortable order, we were very warm too. Overall very good value for money and I would happily stay there again.

This was our third stay at this hotel on a special pre-christmas break to visit the Christmas market at Exeter with friends. The hotel is very clean and comfortable but the bedrooms are a little on the small size, even the 3 twin King rooms that we had booked as a package. Hotel staff were pleasant and friendly, although on... More

Had a great works christmas party here this weekend, food was fantastic. We stayed 2 nights very nice rooms but ours was a bit on the small side. Only one thing to gripe about is the road noise, our room faced the busy roundabout which at times through the night I think was used as a race track, so we... More
