I visited the Devon Hotel due to a bereavement. I booked the single room beforehand instead of travelling back up north afterwards. I didn't make it to my room until bed time. But what a lovely surprise. The room was small but perfectly adequate. The decor and the shower room were beautiful. Led tv and the usual tea coffe and...

Booked at the last minute so really great price. Receptionist very friendly and helpful, room and hotel lovely, central location but we didn't venture out as restaurant and menu looked good. Reasonable prices and choice of menus, food a little disappointing in the evening. Breakfast however lovely. Easy check in and out.

Great room, beautiful, comfortable. The bottle of prosecco was a nice detail, and the cocktails as well. Great meal, very tasteful. Helpful and polite staff members. We will be looking for this brand on our next trip.

My husband booked us in for the valentines offer and although we live in exeter it was an amazing night away. The room surpassed my expectations it was lovely. We had a great night sleep. Although that was probably helped by the delicious meal we had in the restaurant. We both had the steak and it was simply amazing. The...

Stayed for several nights over two weeks, twin room and an executive room, both were great and the staff were all very helpful. Some previous reviews have mentioned road noise but it didn't bother us at all. Would definitely stay here again.

Excellent travellers hotel. Clean, tidy, friendly staff and the location is easy to reach. Facilities include a decent gym and the adjoining restaurant serves decent food. Rated 3 star, its well up to that. I've been in some 4 star hotels that weren't as good as the Devon.

I have visited here several times with family and friends and have come to the conclusion that the Devon Hotel is best at Carvery and lunchtime meals. The evening menu is a mixture of pub type meals at overpriced restaurant prices. My friend had fishcakes with chips and salad, I had pork in sauce with parmentier potatoes , a small...

What amazing reception staff. Rose, Jessica and Jess really looked after me and my workmates on my 2 day stay in February. They are a credit to your hotel. Good to have a gym on site too and bar staff were very friendly.
