Despite its position set back from a seemingly busy roundabout, the Devon Hotel proved to provide a comfortable and pleasant over-night stay. The Reservations staff were very accommodating in allowing us an early check in before a local wedding, and also were very helpful in providing directions for those unwise enough to approach from the south, a journey including travel...

From the cheery welcome to the excellent restaurant service and food to the well equipped although maybe a little small rooms all was good. The description of a "King" room is a little deceptive as it did not contain a king size bed but outside of that I would happily stay here again. Definitely worth consideration if visiting the area.

We wanted a hotel close to Exeter Airport, so after the usual web search, decided upon the Devon Hotel because of its location, easy access to Exeter Airport and facilities. We selected an Executive room as a bit of a treat, the check in process was smooth as you would expect, however as we were early, it was only just...

Our first at a Brend hotel for a pleasant rendezvous with old friends, prompted by a Garden Festival at Powderham Castle, plus an enjoyable visit to Exeter ... a great pity that our schedule did not enable a visit to Sandy Park to enjoy a great win by "The Chiefs".

The rooms are clean and tidy, although dated, and most had steps to reach them - either up or down. The place has a 80s feel. The location is on the outer edge of town, with nothing nearby.
