I took my family for lunch on sunday 25th January 2015 for the first time and the service was excellent - white table clothes, excellent attentive staff, very comfortable chairs to sit on, and the most important of all the meal - just excellent - again nothing was a problem for the staff which ended up with a good tip...

The hotel as show in the photos on the website is the resturant and the hotel itself is a PVC building next door. The room was very very small with a strange looking door that lead to a stairway. Wallpaper falling of the wall and a metal table and chairs outside in the corner next to the building work. The... More

I frequented the hotel on New Year's Eve (2014). I cannot emphasise enough the quality of food ( I especially enjoyed the seafood platter), attentiveness of staff or the ambience. It seemed to me that everyone had n amazing night and all for such great price. My friends and I have already booked for next year 😍 I think it... More

Decided to take advantage of the special offer of £42 bed breakfast and evening meal. We stayed 3 nights. Food wonderful, well cooked and plentiful. Staff very friendly and helpful. Have stayed in a Brend hotel previously in Barnstaple so knew we wouldn't be disappointed. Room and on-suite immaculate. Tea tray had good selection of teas, hot chocolate coffee and... More

We didn't stay here, but met two friends for a carvery lunch. The service and surroundings were impeccable and the food superb - will definitely return. Large range of vegetables including cauliflower cheese and ratatouille as well as the more traditional choices. Good roast potatoes, new potatoes and mash. Piping hot plates with little trays to carry them on.

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Devon Hotel to do a bit of shopping and catch up with some business. The hotel is clean and friendly with the convenience of being able to eat in their own restaurant. We live in the country and are not used to road noise, which was very apparent to the lighter...

Helpful staff gave a good standard of service and there was a pleasant atmosphere. Food - plenty of choice and good sized portions. Obviously mostly... More
