“Very impressive”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

I don't normal stay anywhere other than branded hotels but on this trip decided to give the smaller independent hotel a try and I must say was very impressed with the Devonshire from the checking in with Kim to the breakfast and goodbye! It is in a prime location and a 2 minute walk from Hornchurch town centre which offers a fantastic variety of pubs and restaurants. The hotel is very clean and well presented and decorated in modern style. The room I had was a double single occupancy located on the ground floor and was very well decorated and spotless, the en-suite was finished to a very high standard if a little bit on the small size for me...but you have to bear in mind I'm a bit of a chunky love monkey. Breakfast was fantastic with a very good selection of hot and cold meals. I must recommend the Devonshire for anyone staying in the area who would love to try a really good hotel. Oh and a tip for you guys that are thinking of booking a double single occupancy room.....I would advise you to book direct with the Devonshire as you get breakfast free...just another nice little touch!

Stayed for one night for a nearby family party.
Excellent hotel with large and very clean well equipped rooms. Staff very helpful.
Breakfast is very good too. Would certainly recommend anyone to stay at The Devonshire.

Room Tip: Room 12 is a very large & well appointed room.

We only stayed for the one night to go to a family get together, but the Devonshire was ideal for this. The beds were huge, a lovely shower and spacious room. The velux had a black out blind and I slept all night without hearing a thing. Breakfast was plentiful and service very prompt.

This was our third visit to the Devonshire and it definitely won't be the last.
Having enjoyed staying in standard rooms before, we were even more impressed by the "accessible" room we had booked this time. Having just had a hip replacement I really appreciated the "wet room" shower and hand rails in the bathroom.
Breakfast was lovely as usual and parking is good.
The owner and his family/staff are always happy to help.
Shops and Underground/Railway stations are only a few minutes walk away.

I stayed at the Devonshire Hotel for three nights in April for work. I stay in a lot of hotels throughout the year, mostly in the big chains, and this hotel is the best I have stayed in for a long while. The executive double room I had was modest in size, but well equipped, tastefully decorated, had an immaculate and nicely designed en-suite bathroom, and a very comfortable bed. The hotel has been very nicely updated and is kept exceptionally clean. The staff are helpful, accommodating any requests very quickly. As it's a small hotel, breakfast is cooked to order - perfect. The only drawback for some people will be lack of restaurant/evening meals, but there is a large number of good and varied restaurants within a couple of minutes walk, so I didn't find this a problem. If you like small, friendly, family run hotels then this is a great place to stay.

I have just stayed at the Devonshire for the very first time.

It was excellent in every sense, clean, friendly, everything about this smart little Hotel is first class.

The staff are very helpful, the location to the town is perfect, the food is healthy, honest and home cooked. Take note Premier Inns and such people !!!!

Excellent value for money and managed by an Owner who actually cares and takes pride.

Room Tip: Just make sure you book in advance, because I think this place will be booked up !

Stayed one night here with my partner, we had room 3.

PROS
-Good parking facilities
- Room was a good size
- Throughout the hotel was immaculate
- Within walking distance to the town
-Overall fine for a short stay

CONS
- Very noisy during the night, could hear what the room next door were watching on TV! The door bell on the front door is also a nuisance during the night.
- No hair dryer in our room, even though it was listed as a facility on their website
- We needed to check out for 9am, understandably this was during breakfast service however we were left for ten minutes (having rang the service bell twice) before anyone came to assist.

I think if they considered sound proofing rooms and perhaps placed a carpet on the wooden floor in the communal hallway this may improve the sleep quality available on the ground floor. Had we been in a room on the second floor we may have had a lovely nights sleep! It is fine for a stopover hotels and when we came across the staff they did seem friendly.

Room Tip: Avoid the first floor!
