Received a warm welcome.

Room was clean and comfortable.

Did not use the pool but it looked inviting.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2009

We have just come back from 3 lovely days staying at the Devon Court Hotel and have had a lovely time. The owners off the hotel are very nice and make you feel welcome. The weather was really hot when we stayed so a dip in the Hotel pool was a welcome release from the heat! The breakfast in the morning was freshly cooked and the waitress was extremely polite and friendly. The walk to the beach takes about 5 mins so the hotel really is in a prime location. The rooms were cleaned every day and always to a high standard. Overall I would reccommend this hotel to anyone, I will definately be going back!

My wife and I stayed for few days after we got married and were going to mexico later on in the year so we wanted a short break.
It was perfect here, we had plenty of welcome and plenty of privacy.
The breakfast was A1 and thats coming from a food expert!!!!
We will be looking to stay here a some point in the future and will look forward to it!
If you go to Torquay- stay here! they will look after you

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2006

The Devon Court Hotel is owned by a couple (whose names I can't remember) who run the hotel between them, apart from a pleasant waitress at breakfast. The hotel is in a good position for both shops and beach and has a swimming pool. We were on a working weekend in sub-zero March weather, so the swimming pool wasn't an option (although one of our colleagues did mention she wished she'd brought her swimming costume?!).

Our room was in the annex, decor was a little old fashioned but spacious with a shower en-suite and very clean. Comfortable, kingsize bed (two singles joined together), also tea, coffee and biscuits. The lady owner was friendly and we had a nice chat with her in the lounge - where we ordered a pot of tea. She lit the fire and we relaxed in the comfortable leather sofas and armchairs, just what we needed after a tough day! There is also a small bar in the adjoining room (it's worth having a look at the original ceiling of both rooms).

The hotel has character and is a good price. The breakfast is freshly cooked and the scrambled egg was one of the best hotel scrambled egg I've ever had. Delicious!

I said to the lady owner I would give the hotel its first review on trip advisor and I hope she likes what I've written! I got the impression in the short time we were there that, apart from working extremely hard, she and her husband are really interested in their guests - which is something special in the current corporate hotel enviroment.
