Good spacious room with king bed/mini fridge/large bathroom. Easy and very convenient parking. Lovely breakfast buffet. Relaxed atmosphere in bar and restaurant with good food. A bit out of the centre so a car is needed to get into town but it's an easy enough journey. Friendly staff readily available. We liked it very much.

Superb after having to stay in so long with the lockdowns brought on by Covid a real treat. Lovely to eat out again and enjoy the cuisine and to use your facilities e.g. bathroom and comfort of the bar and dining rooms..

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here on our way to Cornwall. Food is excellent and enormous portions. The staff are very nice apart from one lady in the dining room at night who was very rude and abrupt. Room was ok this time but bathroom was small and shower was poor. A nice stay though thank you!

Our family picked the Devon for its convenience - we were in the area for a wedding. It was convenient, but it was really great in terms of service: every single member of staff went out of their way to be helpful and pro-active, from the receptionist who - although busy - wnt out of her way to find me a pair of scissors (needed to cut the tags from a new dress) to the manager (who seemed to be perpectually on duty 24/7 ...) who responded immediately when I managed to jam the room safe ...) Add in a quite reasonable dining experience, and excellent value-for-money, and you can see why I liked this hotel. The only downside to the visit arose from factors way beyond the hotel's control ... situated by a roundabout at the bottom of a valley, the location is clearly ideal for unofficial late-night drag racing competions between Exeter's loudest motorcycles - so, yes, bring your earplugs, it'll be worth it!
