I booked a number of us in for a business trip as I couldn't bear the thought of a soulless stay in a well known chain. The hotel was spotless, beds clean and comfortable and a short taxi trip to central Exeter. The hotel has a lovely pub/bar/restaurant with a great atmosphere for drinks and/or eating; so if you are...

We recently indulged in the two night Romance Package and had a really lovely time. The room was great - we were treated to bubbly and chocolates in our room - together with pre-dinner cocktails, evening meal and breakfast. The food was gorgeous and the staff were very attentive. I wouldn't have any reservations in recommending this hotel to anyone.

Another nice couple of nights at the Devon Hotel, Exeter. As always the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was well equiped and spotlessly clean.

Overall the hotel was well presented - clean, tidy well signed and hospitable. The rooms sizes are not generous but having one of the rooms with patio doors to the outside was a bonus.

Visit this room and see response below, the restaurant was good but more variety needed with the food. Bedroom was the biggest disappointment and had put me off staying again as I didn't get a single night sleep due to the size of the bed.
