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...

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. This wasn't my first choice but we chose to come on the weekend of the round the mountain bike race and booked really late so didn't have a lot of choice! My parents had a room at the front of the hotel with a double bed (841). The rooms here... More

A business trip has had me staying at The Devon Hotel for a week. Room service breakfast was appalling, no butter or margarine served with toast, staff had to return with milk for cereal and yoghurt was warm, gave up in the end and had coffee at local cafe. Dinner not much better, lamb shanks and mash dry and tasteless.... More
