Jane found us a room as darkness fell, gave us a lovely welcome and even carried our cases to the room! Our room # 123 was up a flight of stairs (lift available-noisy and unusual:) then three steps up to the room and three steps down into the large bathroom) with shower, tub and heated towel rail. Well appointed, cosy... More

Location was right on the sea front with easy access to the town centre. Hotel was clean and breakfast was great. We found the bedrooms very warm even with no heating on and the windows open - also having the windows open at night gave us a disturbed night due to the noise of the Sea on the beach pebbles....

Let me first say that the highlight of our stay were the staff who we found to be most friendly, provided excellent service and couldn't have been more helpful throughout our stay. Unfortunately there were areas of our stay which weren't on the same level. Our room, although clean and tidy, was on the small size with a bathroom that... More

We stayed in this hotel in September 2014 and I have to say it is an incredibly friendly trip back in time in a place that caters, in general, for the elderly. We are in our 40's so it was nice to feel young and we both agreed that the homely cooking smells emanating through the hotel brought back warm... More

We spent 3 days at the hotel and could not fault the attention to detail. The reception staff were pleasant and extremely helpful. Our room overlooking the sea was very pleasant, albeit that the shower room was very small. However, the couple we went with had an extremely small room but as we were there for only 3 days they...

The hotel(s) are nicely located on the beachfront. It unfortunately give the impression and feeling of being quite old and in need of TLC. The breakfast room is overcrowded and often running short of food. Our double room was VERY small with a VERY small window overlooking the sea. This hotel is way overpriced for what you get.

We didn't stay at the Kingswood and Devoran Hotel, so this is just a review of the restaurant. We popped in for lunch mid-week. The food was well-cooked and tasty, and the service was good (though I found our waitress a little bit too eager to please in an almost bowing and scraping sort of way; a more easy, natural... More

To be honest I have just copied my previous review about this hotel. "Stayed here as a central base for our golfing tour of Devon with seven others. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. All our party agreed that the restaurant food was very good and were very happy to make minor changes to accommodate our parties different dietary.... More
