This is a pretty good hotel. Moderately priced and the rooms are clean and tidy. The staff are friendly and helpful. My stay was very pleasant but unfortunately my bathroom though clean, stank of mould. I alerted the staff to the problem and they said they would get on to the issue

We stayed 3 nights and would love to return to the Devon. Our second floor room was very comfortable with two huge beds (we had one each!). Bike hire was included with our hotel stay and access to the cycleway is very convenient. There is a great cafe a short walk down the road for your early morning coffee
