The room we had was a bit difficult to get to 48 is up a steep staircase!! If you very active it won't be to much of a problem. The rest of the hotel was very clean and comfortable the food was excellent as was some of the entertainment all in all a good time was had .

Just had a four night stay at the Devonshire. Good accommodation, very good food and the entertainment was a of a good standard. Staff, particularly Kelvin were good. Perhaps a little too much bingo but there was a strong blue rinse brigade in attendance.

Rooms, food and service all very good but the entertainment was generally poor.
