Lovely hotel, very helpful and friendly staff, food very good, with a choice of menu for the evening meal and a very good breakfast, good entertainment in the evening
rooms very clean, fresh towels every day and a clean bathroom , plenty of hot water. The travel company we came with Daishs were excellent and the driver Wayne was very helpful and very informative giving us lots of information when we went out on the day trips
a very nice break

Room Tip: ask for a room in the main hotel

this was our first holiday with daish's and my wife and I were pleasantly surprised, the coach on the way to the hotel was very clean and comfortable and the driver was very friendly. Check in was very efficient and our room was lovely. It had a flat screen TV too. The food was better then expected and the bar was very reasonably priced. The entertainment was fab also! Every member of staff was lovely and everywhere was spotless. We will return to the Devonshire ASAP.

My wife and I stopped at the Devonshire from the 9th -13th January. We cannot thank the Manager Nigel and all his staff for making it a wonderful 5 day break. From the moment we caught the coach at Dudley,West Midlands until we returned we were fully looked after. Once again Nigel many thanks and keep up the good work.

A great value hotel situated a short walk up the hill from Torquay town centre - although for the less mobile there is a regular bus service stopping right outside the hotel. There are one or two steps to negotiate in getting around the hotel and grounds but not enough to worry about. Many of the lovely clean bedrooms are on the ground floor too - most of which have been refurbished over the past couple of years since we have been visiting. I did see that more rooms are still being refurbished during my recent visit too. The Manager (Nigel) and his reception staff are on hand 24 hours a day to help with any enquiries or assistance you may need. A good choice of food in the restaurants with helpful and attentive waiting staff. There is entertainment every evening too ranging from quizzes and bingo to singers and comedians. Overall a good value for money hotel - most people seem to arrive on coach inclusive holidays although we always travel self-drive and ample parking is available.
