As a single parent of an autistic child holidaying alone with him is never a problem at the Devonshire. We are always made to feel very welcome, right from the moment our coach picks us up en route to the hotel. Every room that we have stayed in has been spacious, clean and comfortable. The choice of meals each day is great and the food delicious and for children there are separate options to choose from. The hotel is very child friendly with a cosy games room and an outdoor pool in warmer months. Staff are very good with children so parents/Grandparents can relax knowing that they are in a safe and friendly environment. There are some fantastic walks nearby - a short stroll down the hill brings you to the harbour, passing the LivingCoasts attraction. There are plenty of places to visit. We particularly enjoyed Kent Caverns and Babbacombe model village on this trip. After dinner everyone enjoys the top class entertainment with Simon that includes fun packed topical quizzes followed by prize bingo, all professionally delivered with lots of banter and fun so that laughing is guaranteed! Simon is able to entertain both adults and children alike with ease and along with the other members of staff will do anything to make your stay at the Devonshire perfect!
My little boy actually cried on our last night because he didn't want to leave so we have booked another stay at Easter!
A big thank you to all the staff from Deborah and George
