We stayed here from the 17th of April to the 21st, Had a lovely time, the food was very good and also the entertainment. The hill was a bit steep to walk back up to the hotel, but as we are fairly fit it didnt pose any problems for us, if you couldnt manage to walk it, there are buses... More

Excellent value for the price. Good food from an a la cart menu with fresh ingredients rather than frozen. Efficient service from friendly dining room and bar staff. Excellent entertainment every evening by talented artistes. All the rooms are comfortable and the hotel is well kept and very clean. I would be happy to stay there again.

I wrote to complain about not getting the room as arranged when I made the booking, having explained our needs. I had no response to 2 letters, and... More

Devonshire Hotel is owned by the Daish's holiday group and so is frequented by coach parties, although it is open to independent travellers. During our stay there were customers from age 3 to 90 plus. There were several kinds of live entertainment each night - a comedian who acted as a compere throughout dinner, quizzes, cash bingo and live music.... More

Last week we spent five days in this hotel after making a very last minute booking for a five day break which included transport. The price charged was in our opinion so reasonable that we set off with low expectations of the hotel but determined to enjoy ourselves whatever. The journey was long owing to the unnecessary delays on the... More

Dear Guest, after reading your review we would like to correct a few facts as i feel some of your comments are untrue and frankly unfair. 1. We do not use tinned vegetables in our hotel the potatoes are fresh mids (mid-season) and are rumbled to remove the skins that’s why they look smooth. The baby carrots in question are... More
