On a bit of a whim I booked one of daishs last minute rooms and coach travel for myself (aged 38) and my daughter (aged 15) after my mom received her usual brochure through the post. Although the room we had in the lodge was a little old fashioned I can't fault it's cleanliness and as we pretty much spent... More

I booked this hotel for my mum and nan as they both love Torquay. After doing my research I opted for the Devonshire as it boasted nightly entertainment and a bus stop right outside; just what my mum and nan would like. Well they have literally not stopped raving about the place since they got back. They said that the... More

The staff are very friendly and accommodating. We had a fantastic time this year and had a laugh with some of the guests. If I had one ask it... More

A party of, 3 we were looking forward to our first stay at the Devonshire, our first impression was of a lovely old house and grounds.

Hi Guest and thank you for your review, I am sorry we could not get your rooms closer, we had to give the room closer to the front to a couple with a greater need, they were very poor on their feet. it did mean you then had a one minute walk between the rooms so I am very sorry... More
