Stayed at The Devonport for 2 nights at the weekend. We asked to change our original room as it was a little small & stuffy - the staff were very helpful & dealt with this efficiently despite the hotel being very busy. The second room was well appointed, although very hot due to the exceptional weather - there was a fan but it was old & noisy, maybe some good quality ceiling fans would get over the problem of not being able to instal a/c. There was quite a lot of road noise too, but this is unavoidable given the location, so there is nothing the hotel can do about it. The bed was comfortable, but there were only single pillows & they were a bit lumpy.
Breakfast was very good, there was plenty of choice and we particularly appreciated the local sausages, which were excellent quality. As ever with a buffet breakfast, some items has dried out & got a bit hard & cold; I don't understand why hotels don't prepare smaller batches. On the second morning, some items had run out, including plates. This was sorted when a staff member was notified. I cannot write about breakfast without mentioning the wonderful breakfast service manager - you could not help but smile with his greeting & I'm not a morning person! He was such a character & so enthusiastic about his job - what a breath of fresh air.
The location of the hotel is fantastic, right in the middle of beautiful Greenwich - we arrived by river, what a treat! As well as the many local attractions, the DLR/tube are really close for convenient travel to other parts of the capital.
We've stayed in numerous hotels in London, & The Devonport scores highly on service, location & overall experience & we would definitely stay there again. Thank you.
