“Return visit”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

I was looking forward to my return visit to the Devonport having stayed there shortly after the new owner had taken it over in April. He has certainly put some money and effort into improving the decor and facilities. The cute little coffee shop is now open with delicious cakes and scones served with a beautifully made latte. I was sorry I missed the courtyard in full bloom but the welcome from the staff and the tasty and well priced evening meal made up for it.
The lack of foliage on the trees lining the banks of the Tees meant that I could enjoy the beautiful views across to North Yorkshire from my bedroom on the front of hotel. My room was spacious, warm and clean though not yet refurbished but there was little to complain about for the price I paid. I noticed that the promised changes to the rooms has just recently started as workmen were busy installing a new shower in one of the rooms whilst I was there so hopefully on my next visit there will be even more to report.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have lovely views but there is a diversion at the moment so more traffic than usu...

We were visiting friends in the area, with our well behaved but big four legged friend along. We took a recommendation from a friend and were very glad we did. The staff were all friendly, as were the locals; quality food, nice big breakfast, comfy bed and clean room. They made it very easy to manage with the dog. Lovely walks along the river
Would definitely stay there again

I have had many meals at the hotel and never once have I been disappointed. The food is superb. Very child friendly. Lots for the children to play with outside in the great courtyard at the rear of the hotel. I would highly recommend you try this venue and I am positive you will return.

What a fantastic two night stay I had at the Devonport with a few friends for a spot of golf in the area. Anthony and his team headed by Barry couldnt have done enough for us and made us feel at home. The evening meals were top notch and the breakfast was just what we needed after a few beers. A good selection of real ales and well priced additional products made it a great weekend. Thanks very much. Cant wait for the next trip! Four!

Stayed here at short notice. Lovely clean room with a huge bed. Great breakfasts, lovely menu and very welcoming staff who are proud to work there. They've just opened a nice coffee shop but i didn't have time to try it out. The homemade scones sounded tempting! Would and probably will stay there again.

Went for Sunday lunch here with friends and it was very good. There was a choice of beef, pork or turkey (all three if so desired) yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes, fresh vegetables and lovely gravy with the relevant sauces for the meat. With drinks and starters for all four of us the bill was under £50.......good value and great food. Will definitely go again.
