We have now stayed at the hotel a few times. The last being the Saturday night before Mothering Sunday, where we had three rooms. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and comfortable. My husband loves the SKY channels. The breakfasts are of a high standard, as are the evening meals. Mothers Day lunch was also very nice. I am sure... More

The hotel was easy to find and remarkably easy to exit by car despite being on a major road junction. The sound insulation was good as I was not disturbed at all by the traffic even though I was located in a room on the ground floor facing the main road. The bedroom was very comfortable and the hotel very... More

We stayed at the Devon Hotel on Sunday and Monday evening and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As previously mentioned the rooms are on the small size but are perfectly adequate for a short stay. The rooms are very clean and the heating system very efficient. The bathroom was spotless and spacious. The quality and variety of the food for the... More

Lovely hotel, immaculate room, was small as some mention but didn't detract from the experience. Has full SKY channels, a first for me traveling around the country on business. Staff excellent. Only down side was that the attached Bar and Brasserie looked beautiful but didn't serve food between 2.15pm and 6.30pm. Got to hotel about 5ish and wanted to eat... More

First time visited and we would highly recommend this hotel. We chose a king size room which was spacious. Food excellent and staff very helpful. A good hotel and we would revisit when in Exeter again.

This is one of the cleanest hotels I have stayed in, the beds are comfortable, the pillows take some getting used to, I realized in the morning I should have only used one of them. The food was very good and the staff couldn't have been friendlier, if I am ever in that area again I wouldn't hesitate staying there... More

Room smaller than expected but go a good standard, especially the bathroom that was new. I had two single beds pushed together as one. You couldn't sleep across the two beds because they were clearly two beds so it was like having a single bed. It was comfy though. Regarding the staff; the receptionist who greeted me at 11pm was...

Note dinner bed and breafast does not include the full evening menu but a fixed small selection which changes approximately every three days and then repeated. We asked if we could select other items and pay extra but we're told no it's a fixed menu disappointing.

We love this place! Yes the rooms are small but they are toasty warm, beautifully appointed, clean, modern and well maintained. Free parking, free wifi, fair prices, 24 hour front desk service and an awesome restaurant and bar. We will be back.
