We stayed here for two nights. The room was fairly small, but comfortable. The en-suite was ok. The bed was particularly nice and the free Sky TV was a bonus. The room had a door direct from the car park and another into the main hotel. The adjoining restaurant next door was also very good.

We enjoyed our week at the Devon Hotel, our room had recently been refurbished, the finish and fittings were first class, I particularly liked the monsoon shower. The food drink and service were all good. The one negative point for me was that as I live in France I very much look forward to a pint of real ale on...

Stayed here a few times whilst working in Exeter, The hotel rooms are clean and tidy, reception is always pleasant and polite even when some guests are not. Great staff great stop over, not sure what the extra really gets you for an exec room apart from 2 bottles of chilled water - would stay again

We have stayed many times over the years. Lovely new rooms, very impressed. Restaurant very good..
