What a lovely hotel and friendly staff nothing is to much trouble for them. The hotel is on to of a steep hill but a bus pulls in the grounds every 30mins so no problems getting into town monday to Friday but does not run on a weekend, but there is a bus stop outside

Accommodation very good. Food excellent choice and hot. Bar manager not very sociable. Forthcoming coffee shop will be an asset. Entertainments Manager puts in lots of effort. Very good entertainment but having to sit on hard dining chairs all evening not so good as the other hotels. Staff very helpful.

Cannot fault the hotel, staff are great, food, entertainment all excellent. I do agree with other comments i have seen about Daish's recently, things are not the same as when we had the "J" Team. All the nice friendly ways, do anything for you, gone, now it's all we cant do that anymore. New management?

Had my favourite room yet again and once again had the pleasure of my meals being served by Kelvin. I absolutely love the new reception, it is a hundred times better than the...

We have been with other coach companies this was our first trip with Daish's. We were self-drive due to visiting a sick relative whilst there. Room clean Simon very friendly and welcoming food good as was the entertainment. The only disappointing experience was allowing outside local residents to join in the entertainment on Saturday evening. They spoilt the holiday atmosphere...

We requested ground or low floor and we were more than satisfied with our ground floor room. Very convenient to the restaurant good choice menu to suit all diets for breakfast and dinner. We didn't use the games facilities, but there were games if you needed​ them. In​ the summer there is a outdoor swimming pool, and a local bus...

The hotel was fine, small room which was a long way from the restaurant and reception area. When I asked if there was a possibility of a change in rooms I was told there were none available. The receptionist checked the application and said that I had not made any requests on the form. I said I did not know...

Thank you for your review of the Devonshire Hotel. I am sorry to read that you found the location of the room you were allocated unsuitable. The reservation team always ask everyone if there are any requirements when taking a booking. This would have been the time to mention any requests to be passed on to the hotel. I hope...

This hotel has improved since our last visit. The food was much better. And the rooms had been freshened up. Although the furniture is still very dated .The bed was comfy and the room warm. The hotel is up a very steep hill. And it isn"t a very well lit road if you want to go for a walk when...
