I feel I must write to thank you for the recent holiday my wife and I spent at the Devonshire Hotel. We have spent many holidays with another well known group, but this was the first time we had visited your hotel in Torquay. Our first impression as we approached the hotel was one of a good clean well kept building and grounds with plenty of parking space.
At reception we were met with a smile and told we were a little early but if we wished to wait in the lounge and have a cup of tea they would not keep us from our room for to long.
The room was a bit on the small side but had everything we required, plenty of liquid refreshments towels and the room was very clean. On entering the restaurant we were once again met with a smile from a lady called Eva and were asked where we would like to sit, this was a first ever, we chose table number 1 as my wife is a little hard of hearing and thought it would help her when we stayed for the evenings entertainment. This turned out to be a good move as our waitress always met us with what was becoming the normal a smile and sense of humour (Ella). The food could not be faulted; we both put on a couple of pounds in weight.
The entertainment was led by Dee sorry we never knew your surname but that was typical of the hotel, the artists appearing every night were top class and Simon calling the bingo along with his banter had us both in stitches. Monday morning came too soon and we had to leave, but we are planning to return in April.
Thank you all at the Devonshire for giving us such a wonderful four day break.
