The stand out feature at the Devon Hotel is the noticeably friendly, efficient and well trained staff. Something very endearing about the atmosphere they create.
The compact rooms appear to have been recently refurbished to a high standard. The gardens are cared for, befitting the Devon riviera, rather than an Exeter ring road. The front door was being repainted and this all indicated a well managed hotel with owners who maintain and care about quality standards.
Food was good and plentiful. A good place for a carvery which I think is on every evening, or table d'hôte as you prefer.
Cons are road noise and the noise insulation between rooms is not perfect but tolerable. The tv remote was a pain and channels stored in random order with no way of seeing what was on - a personal bugbear.
A pleasant stay for a night or two or work trips. I'm often happy with a Premier Inn but the bar and restaurant would bring me back here. I suspect they run a good event given the quality of staff, food and building care.
