Had a very pleasant 3 night stay (booked at last minute due to cancelled holiday to America thanks to Icelandic volcanic ash) at The Devoncourt. Front of hotel and reception area give a disappointing initial impression but this was more than compensated for by the excellent gardens and views at the back. The hotel is in a good location overlooking the sea with easy access to the beach. It is about a 15 minute walk to the town. It is set in beautiful grounds and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. We were given a family suite which was very spacious with plenty of storage space and a wonderful view. It was also clean. The restaurant was taken over by a franchise in November 2009 and has been very tastefully refurbished. The food was good but not outstanding. As the bar is also run by the franchise, it has limited opening hours and closes at 11.00 p.m. at night. The rest of the hotel is badly in need of refurbishment but this is gradually being addressed. The outside swimming pool and surrounding area was being given a makeover while we were there and the televisions in the rooms have been upgraded recently. There was also a note in our room stating that new furniture was due to arrive. Despite this, we felt that it was very good value for money and we would probably return there.
We would thoroughly recommend a visit to 'Les Saveurs Sea Food Restaurant' in Tower Street. It is run by a Frenchman and his family and serves the most amazing food. It is the best food we have tasted in a very long time and is very good value for money. It would be worthy of a Michelin Star.
