The Devon Hotel would be one of the best hotels I have stayed in. Clean, modern, great staff, and nothing was too much trouble. We fell in love with the hotel and the town during our stay. The restaurant (a buffet restaurant) was one of many highlights. We will be back. We will be raving about this place for a...

I was a little disappointing to pay for a upgraded room to only find out that we overlook the courtyard to the restaurant ( Which means we couldn't even open our curtains as there wasn't even tints. Otherwise the room was clean and location was central.

Hi Melissa, Yes, all our rooms have been upgraded. I'm sorry, we didn't understand you'd prefer not to be one of our 5 rooms opening onto the Rocks Courtyard. We could so easily have looked after you in one of our other rooms. Kind regards, Peter Tennent

Booked this hotel from its sister hotel in Paihia part of the Heritage group. Totally different,they are currently upgrading rooms and dragging what used to be a Motor Inn into a more upmarket hotel. Reception staff were all pleasant, the hotel was very busy due to the annual Americana event taking place. Loads of classic American cars in the car...

Thanks for joining us. Yes, our hotel has had a top to bottom upgrade and refit. I'm glad you had a chance to get out and explore the region. We're pretty proud of Taranaki, and everything on offer here. And AmeriCARna is lots of fun too - every February. We'd love to see you back soon. Kind regards, Peter

okay stay, plenty of parking, helpful staff. really comfortable bed, only wish they check for hair on the sheets while setting up, I found a couple. Towels did not have the starchy clean feel. Disappointed with tv, display not very good, didn't feel digital, remote frustrating to use. only 12 channels. Buffet dinner was good, enjoyed both food and dessert...

The Devon is a lovely hotel. The staff are very helpful and friendly, the parking is very good, the hotel is spotlessly clean and the outdoor heated pool and spa are great. We didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on the restaurant but it looked to be very busy.

I have stayed here many times, and it is always good, has a great restaurant with buffett for both dinner and breakfast. Rooms are ok, a little on the small side, but modern and clean. Biggest issue i had this time was the wifi being slow and dropping out. Reception staff are always very efficient and professional.

This is a must stay when in New Plymouth. It is very central and on the main road to the city centre. Don't let that put you off, we had a room facing the road and night time is very quiet. If there are any concerns just ask fro room facing the pools. Speaking of which, there is a nice...
