Had two nights with three other families over Waitangi weekend. We were in a wing with no air conditioning and at 27 during the day and 20 at night in made for difficult sleep if you weren't used to the heat. Staff were very helpful, we used the free cycles which was a great bonus. Kids loved the pool and... More

Good hotel - clean, well run, friendly and helpful staff. Convinient location. Kids loved the pool. The room we had didn't have aircon, which in late January made it a little warm - this is the height of summer tho... Good Value.

It was our first stay at the Devon Hotel. And we enjoyed it so much. The staff were very friendly and service was prompt. We also ate at Marbles buffet, BEST Buffet we have had on a long time. The food quality was amazing with the wide varieties of dishes. The kids enjoyed dessert the most as they do. Kids... More

We stayed a couple of nights, and are chuffed we picked this hotel. Beautiful! The hotel is clean and well maintained. The grounds are beautifully laid out. The staff are friendly and helpful. We loved the restaurant it's a buffet, but very nice. We highly recommend The Devon Hotel, and will be back.

Our first family mini-break away with a new baby and we loved it. Had the best stay at The Devon with everything we wanted: Bar, Buffet restaurant, pool, air conditioned room, cot for bubba, handy parking and use of bicycles. Will stay again. A++++

Came here for a wedding, which was done really well however we were underwhelmed with the room. The was no aircon, which meant we had to sleep with the sliding doors open. The room was small and not to a good standard, the shower room was barely big enough to have one person in. Considering the price compared to other... More

Thanks for your feedback and for joining us. Almost all our rooms are fully air-conditioned, and one of our wings has showers big enough for three or four to share the shower (so I'm told). I'm sorry we didn't reallocate your room accordingly. Kind regards, Peter Tennent More

A fantastic hotel. Friendly and obliging staff. Enjoyed the main restaurant (Marbles Buffet). Enjoyed exploring on the free guest bikes. Enjoyed the pool area, and then took advantage of the free city pool access - and should have used the free gym access. We will be back!

In late December, my husband and I (and many friends) stayed at the Devon Hotel for three nights to attend a wedding. The Devon is an excellent venue for a wedding. Jan was the wedding organiser and the whole event went off without a hitch. The ceremony, with about 140 people in attendance, was held in the hotel's beautiful garden.... More

The room we stayed in had no air conditioning so had to keep windows and ranch sliding door open as it was hot. Wedding on at the hotel and the wedding group were having a great time right outside our rooms in the courtyard until 3am. Complained once at midnight to front desk and they quietened down for an hour... More

We stayed whilst on holiday, but I will request this hotel when in town on business. Great grounds and facilities. Loved our room. Loved the restaurant. Loved the room service. But, it's the staff and their attitude that sets this place apart - nothing was too much trouble. Everyone so friendly. We spoke with guests that used the free mountain... More
