“Very comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

On my way to Cornwall and stayed holiday Sunday night at The Devon Hotel.. I was upgraded to a King Room on arrival. The room was a revelation. Clearly just revamped the Bathroom suite seemed brand new. The bed was very comfortable and my only complaint was the room was too hot. The restaurant was good value for money and the service attentive.

A family weekend to celebrate a wedding anniversary, Ideally situated off the M5 and at the junction of the A38 and A380 made it easy for us to visit the nearby area.
A warm greeting and excellent service from the staff throughout the weekend, The bedrooms are clean and very comfortable and although the hotel is situated by a busy rounder about noise did not effect a good nights sleep, as this had been mentioned in previous reviews it was a concern.
The Carriages Restaurant has wonderful food in very pleasant surroundings, ideal place to relax after a busy day sightseeing. Plenty of choice for a breakfast that sets you up for the day.
Will use again when visiting the area or near one of their other hotels, thank You for making our weekend enjoyable

I arranged a surprise Retirement Party for my partner at the Hotel and it was perfect. All the staff are very friendly and helpful, the buffet was excellent. The whole experience from meeting Simon the Manager who helped me with all the options available including his assistance at the party made it all worthwhile and a complete success. Couldn't have been better and would certainly not hesitate to use the Hotel again for any future events. Thank you!

I came to the Devon Hotel for a weekend away, the staff are friendly and happy to help. The king sized bed is as big as it should be. However the breakfast is one I would not pay for again it was like a rubber meal and I did not enjoy it.
On a whole the Hotel is wonderful!

Room Tip: 1 3 5 have the sun facing the window in the morning

I use this hotel for my free seminars on 'Sales Through Service' every couple of months. This morning, we had more attendees than we were expecting, and they simply offered us a bigger room, without any quibble or fuss.

It gave them quite a bit of extra work, but they couldn't have been nicer and more friendly.

Thankyou Devon Hotel.

p.s. The coffee was good too!
