The 'Devonshire' hotel in Torquay is the first one of 'Daish's' holiday hotels that we've tried and we thought it was good value for money. The hotel was clean and tidy and the food was good. They provided breakfast, dinner and entertainment as part of the package and we enjoyed it.
The staff were friendly and helpful and our room was equipped with everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and the view was of the 'English Riviera', although we DID have the the room on the 2nd floor, in what they called the "tower". We thought the view was exactly what you "would expect to see from a Torquay hotel window"!
