Reviewed October 13, 2010

My wife and I have just spent a very pleasant 4 night stay at the Devoncove Hotel.
It is idealy located in a nice part of the city regular bus services out side the door going to all the popular locations. It is a budget range Hotel and good value, the staff were all well motivated and helpful. The hotel only provides Bed and Breakfast the breakfast was good and nicely served. Loads of reasturants within 5 minuites walk so dinner not a problem. Clearly the hotel is well used but our room was spacious and comfortable we would recommend it to anyone. there are candid pictures on the web relating to this hotel these are not what we experienced or saw so donot be put off.

Stayed: October 2010, traveled as a couple

The hotel had been refurbished downstairs to an adequate standard but the rooms although clean & comfortable needed some TLC. The curtains & carpet were stained in various places & the bath had black mould around the edge. The room was cleaned daily & the bed was comfortable. The downside was we were at the front of the hotel which was very noisy as it is on the main road on a main bus route with the bus stop directly outside & the curtains didn't stop the light coming in. Despite the noise from the street into the early hours it didn't prevent us personally from sleeping. The breakfast was good with a mixture of cooked & continental. Overall for what we paid we were satisfied but if your looking for luxury or quiet this is not the place for you. Good location for the money we paid & the staff were accomodating & pleasant on the reception although in the breakfast room some of the staff were a little stand offish on occassions. Over all comfortable & somewhere to rest your head on a night. I wouldn't recommend any length of stay here but good for a few nights away

We got this at the last minute for one night at a very reasonable rate for such a location. Reviews for similar hotels in the area were appalling and though I'd agree that the reception area is very flash in comparison to the rooms (or the staircase from reception area to the rooms - yikes!!) the rooms could have been a lot worse. Our bed was bearable and the wondows let in a lot of noise - but then again it is a very busy area of Glasgow! Bit disappointed with the shower as its holder was loose and water went all over the floor if we didn't just hold the shower head ourselves. This may have led to the mould around the bath but again - it could have been a lot worse. When we reported the shower problem the next morning the concierge was very apologetic...not apologetic enough to offer any money back...but never mind. I would go back...if they'll have us! Sometimes these places are a work in progress...and it certainly has potential!

Just returned from a weekend in Glasgow, booked this hotel for a great price including breakfast so wasn't expecting much. Great location only 10 mins walk into town , loads of restaurants and bars on the way. Reception good, nice lounge and bar, staff also great and really pleasant(even had a burst pipe to deal with when checking us in). Breakfast and dining area really nice , food good. Choice of cereals, yoghurt, fruit , ham , cheese, juice and cooked breakfast. Room okay just needs new bed..really uncomfortable, bed-cover looks a little old too. Can be noise from the road at night/early hours at front of hotel. Room does have hairdryer, heated towel rails, kettle and tea/coffee. If improvements carry on this will be quite a decent hotel and I would stay again (and obviously pay more). Overall good value.

The room was average with a very lumpy uncomfortable bed. The TV was hardly watchable. Breakfast was OK if a little unfriendly on the service side. WiFi was inaccessible in the room and had to go to the lobby to access the Internet.

I booked this hotel through the net having never stayed here before and not reading any reviews, the rate i thought was very reasonable at £59 for the night and breakfast for 2 of us. The room however left a lot to be desired, the paper was hanging off most walls, the shower leaked, the access panel in the room to get into the plumbing behind the shower was hanging off the wall and wasn't safe, the bed side lights didn't work, the above bed lights didn't work, the bed felt like a divan without a mattress, the soap dispenser was empty, the shower rail wasn't secured, apart from all this it was a very clean hotel and as long as i don't have to pay the full room rate of £140 prpn i'll probably stay there again if the need arises.

Devoncove, General Manager at Devoncove Hotel, responded to this reviewResponded June 4, 2010

Thank you for your feedback and encouragment to the staff by awarding 5 out of 5 for service.

I do sincerely apologise for your room not being up to standard during your stay. The hotel is currently undergoing a upgrading problem to update our outlook. As you probably notice during your stay that the reception, lounge and breakfast area are of slight different style to the bedroom upstairs, that is the contemperory style we are aiming for the whole hotel. The plan is to complete it within the next 6 months including the opening of the restaurant for dinner.

I would like to discuss your feedback and would appreciate if you can contact me directly via email or telephone.

Warm regards
Jennifer Lee
General Manager
