Family trip, Very comfy beds (other travellers are right). Stayed in a modern unit with queen beds. Lovely big TV and free wifi that was fast as. Very friendly staff and a great buffet restaurant (make sure you book as it was busy every night we were there)

We attended a get together with a group in the hotel. This place is the whole package - we loved it. Our room (don't worry if you forget your toothbrush, or anything else - it's all provided). The grounds. The conference rooms - ours was one of their smaller rooms. Their meals, both the catering for our group, and the...

I have stayed at this hotel many times over many years and I just love the changes they make, the improvements are always on the move and this is a premium hotel, when it was once a lovely traditional one, but the service, refurbishments, major facelifts and exceptional service makes it a ten out ten for me. A brand new...

This is a smart, comfortable medium range hotel with very friendly staff. My only niggle is the lack of a climatisation system. With the window open, the street noise poses a problem. But everything else is good.

The Devon is is at the northern end of town so a bit away from the shopping centre. Friendly greeting on arrival and chats with staff. Room nice and quiet with view of the pool which I quickly dived into, and then soaked in the spa in later summer sun. The dining room felt a bit old school, but there...

I stayed here two nights for a conference. The hotel is located on Devon street, which will take you into the heart of downtown though it is a bit of a walk (15-20 minutes). As far as I could tell, there really isn’t much in the immediate location of the hotel The layout was quite unusual, almost mazelike, with rooms...
