Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is on the outskirts of town. The room was okay and seemed clean, access could be an issue for some people as there doesnt appear to be a lift to the first floor. Although close to a main road, we found it reasonably quiet. The dining area is in a different building without a covered walkway. Probably the...

We often stop at the Devon Hotel for lunch as it is handy en-route for business. The food is always good and the staff very friendly and helpful. Lunch time you have a range of food on offer from sandwiches to carvery, so plenty of choice.

The Devon hotel is a modern hotel situated on the outskirts of Exeter, winner of Hotel of the year 2016 AA Hospitality Awards. I selected this hotel as it looked fresh, modern and had a good restaurant adjacent named Carriages Brasserie. As I would be out all day and didn't want to venture back into the city, staying at this...

Standard rooms are ok for one night but would not want to stay in it longer as they are quite small and bathroom/toilet down 3 steps and very 'compact'. Food very good and staff exceptionally helpful with any request. Room very clean, comfortable and quiet.

I booked a number of us in for a business trip as I couldn't bear the thought of a soulless stay in a well known chain. The hotel was spotless, beds clean and comfortable and a short taxi trip to central Exeter. The hotel has a lovely pub/bar/restaurant with a great atmosphere for drinks and/or eating; so if you are...

We recently indulged in the two night Romance Package and had a really lovely time. The room was great - we were treated to bubbly and chocolates in our room - together with pre-dinner cocktails, evening meal and breakfast. The food was gorgeous and the staff were very attentive. I wouldn't have any reservations in recommending this hotel to anyone.
