Away for the weekend, we needed a place to stay for a night, so booked a night at the Devon Hotel. Staff and check in pleasant and helpful. Room was small but very clean, modern, functional and comfortable enough. We went out for dinner so can't comment on the food, but we had a couple of drinks in the bar... More

We enjoyed our week at the Devon Hotel, our room had recently been refurbished, the finish and fittings were first class, I particularly liked the monsoon shower. The food drink and service were all good. The one negative point for me was that as I live in France I very much look forward to a pint of real ale on... More

Stayed here a few times whilst working in Exeter, The hotel rooms are clean and tidy, reception is always pleasant and polite even when some guests are not. Great staff great stop over, not sure what the extra really gets you for an exec room apart from 2 bottles of chilled water - would stay again

We have stayed many times over the years. Lovely new rooms, very impressed. Restaurant very good.. If I had to offer any advise it would be to give the restaurant interior a face lift as the decor has been the same for years. I would recommend this hotel as the staff are friendly, hygiene & cleanliness are also high on... More

The rooms at The Devon were adequate, perhaps a little small for some taste. However they were kept very clean. It is situated just off a main dual carriageway and if you didn't choose your room wisely could be very noisy. From the road it looks pretty. Our main complaint was with the food. We opted for the carvery not... More

Stayed here for 1 night on route to Cornwall. Nice and modern and clean. Hotel restaurant next door (a little pricey, we ate out elsewhere). Rooms were a little compact but had everything we needed! Had we stayed for a longer period of time we would probably have needed a bit more space, but great for a short stay.

Excellent choice of light bites through to more the substantial meal, lots of variety for both dietary and alleges. Beautifully presented and very fresh, could not fault any of the meals we had. Well done chef. However the waiting staff need more support, it's just a lack of training and it's not fair to have 4 waiting staff who clearly... More
