Stayed for 3 night weekend. The room was really clean and well equipped. Nothing wrong with the bed. The restaurant downstairs was pretty good too. The hotel itself is well situated and not too much of a walk to other pubs and restaurants. Enjoyed the stay and will not hesitate to return.

The beds were really soft, sunken in, old and very uncomfortable. The other two singles in the room didn't fair much better, but i resorted to sleep in one of those as they were better than the queen. I did complain about the bed to the staff. They weren't very apolgetic, asked me what I wanted to do and I... More

Hi Jenine, Thanks for joining us, and for your feedback. I'm pleased you loved Marbles Buffet, but not happy that you had a less than perfect sleep. All our beds are regularly replaced to try and assist just that. But, we are phasing out single beds in any of our rooms - with most guests preferring kings, queens, or doubles. More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights during our holiday and enjoyed our stay. The rooms were reasonably well appointed and very clean. In fact the entire place was spotless and we loved the fairy lights adorning the trees along the roadside. Our inital contact with the front desk staff was not as helpful as we first expected.

I stayed at the Devon Hotel with some work colleagues as part of a business trip to a function held at the Devon. Very happy with the size of the room, the friendly staff and the conference center was impressive and a great asset for New Plymouth. The included wifi worked well and I had a very good sleep and...

My husband and I have just stayed here for 5 days with a large conference group and the staff could not have been more helpful.

We checked in for a 2 night stay with no hassle. All staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms where clean. Missed having a bath in our room but for £70 a night for 2 people we found very reasonable. We had the buffet breakfast which had a lot of choice and was only £12 which we felt was... More

A recently refurbished to a very high standard hotel and conference centre. Marbles buffet has extensive menu and choices great for families but is not fine dining . Overpriced for the buffet option. Nice bars and public areas . Good conference venue.

Stayed here with my parents and five year old daughter.
