I was looking forward to staying in the DeVere as it usually has a good name - how wrong was I? After a 30-minute check-in insisting I filled every detail about me (obviously for data-capture to use later).
I was given a site map and shown where my room block was - a 100mtr outside walk in the dark, wind and rain. It was 10pm. No porter assistance!
Eventually, I found my room that represented a prison cell! I measured it...I'm not joking: 7ft x 8ft (2020cms x 2100 cms). The room was stuffed with a desk, chair, bedside table and all accessories found in a proper size room. There was literally no room for me! It was like clambering in a storage cupboard. I honestly thought it was a hidden camera TV joke show!
At 5am my neighbour turned the TV on and it was as if it was next to my left ear!! The walls of this cheap out-building conversion are chipboard with no privacy at all.
Finally, the overall quality of the room, fixtures and fittings represent the bargain-basement reject department of a hardware store.
Conclusion: Absolutely TERRIBLE! Spend your money elsewhere and don't be fooled by the brand DeVere that should be re-branded "DeAwful".
