We live fairly close and really should visit The Devon Motel more frequently! As a very healthy meat eater the carvery is excellent - all you could possibly want - the beef was perfection, thickly sliced and extemely succulentt with quality vegetables. The staff are extremely accomodating and friendly. Very competitively priced. Would thoroughly recommend.

Staff could not be more friendly or helpful. The menu gave a good choice of well prepared and attractively presented food. Restaurant staff very relaxed despite being very busy, nothing was too much trouble.

There was nearly 100 members of staff at this event. The feedback from colleagues, including myself, that it was overall very good. The meal itself was also very good and well presented, although three kf the desserts had clotted cream with them.

On arrival we received a very poor welcome at reception this was followed by an even worse reception when we arrived for dinner at the restaurant,... More

The Devon Hotel has maintained its high standard of service delivery and accommodation again this year. Even better there is an on site gymnasium. Staff are polite, professional and suitably attentive without being intrusive. Another good stay.
