The hotel has lots of parking which was great as I had driven down from Auckland. Check in with smooth and easy. I was in a King Studio and the room was very spacious and very clean. Loved the fact that they had Sky Movies too! Marbles is definitely a must do, I had the buffet dinner on my first... More

I stayed for business and for one-night only. The rooms are spacious, clean, and tidy, and the staff is courteous. The attached restaurant provided us a good breakfast with a wide selection. There is also complimentary bicycle (and helmet) hire, as well as use of the gym and pool around 10 minutes bike ride away. WiFi works fine in my... More

My Company based it's annual Conference at The Devon, and I loved the place,( though a bit of a rabbit Warren when using different spaces for Conference forums), My room was a lovely double with a HUGE tv and loads of light. Situated on the ground floor with little private outdoor space, it had the other advantage of easy access... More

Our party of 13 stayed and enjoyed the huge well presented buffet dinner, drinks by the fire, and hot spa. Friendly helpful staff were just awesome! Well done :) It was quite busy so worth booking in advance, especially for dinner. Expect yummy well cooked and different dishes and desserts!

Was lucky to get a room as the hotel was packed but reception did an excellent job of getting people seen quickly and efficiently. The hotel itself is alright but I did not think it excelled in any area. You need a car to explore or one of the hotels bikes, great beaches nearby and basicly offers a good place... More

Just stayed the one night. Check in was fast and friendly. Requested a downstairs room when i booked, but i did not get one upon arrival. Rooms are quite small, but nicely furnished and the bed is super comfortable, which was a bonus, i find most hotels do not have comfortable beds. Bathrooms are tiny. I did not have dinner,... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night for business. The reception staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are simple but very clean and functional. I slept very well in the bed, pillow and blanket was all to my liking. When it's windy and rainy, one can hear the weather very well in the room, but it didn't... More

On the 10th of April a couple of friends came down from Auckland and stayed at this hotel for two nights. My friends had advised that they would be arriving late, driving down after work on a Friday. However when they arrived at the hotel at about midnight they could not get in and it took some considerable time for... More

Thanks for that feedback. I'm grateful, as your friends had not passed on anything but positive comments. When they reserved, they had advised they would be arriving at 9.00pm. Our receptionist emailed at 9.30pm to see if they were still coming. Your friend rang back to say they were running late, but to hold the room. Our front doors lock... More

Stayed 2 nights with my family of 2 adults & 2 children while we attended a family event held at the hotel. The room was a hotel style & barely big enough for us all, but we did cope before cabin fever set in. The kids had the run of the hotel, and they all loved it especially the pool,... More
