Everything first class from staff, food, entertainment (especially Simon doing bingo!) So relaxing and super trip out to Princetown and Tavistock! Sad to leave for home! Can't wait to go again! We use Daish's regularly and it was our 6th trip this year - what with their loyalty bonus there surely cannot be better value anywhere!

This was a Tinsel and Turkey break; all public rooms of the Hotel were decorated beautifully and all staff tried very hard to ensure that all guests enjoyed their stay. Initially, our request for non-dairy wasn't available because, we were told, that none of the "Special Requests" at the time of booking are ever passed on to the relevant Hotel... More

Fourth visit to Devonshire. Such good value for money. Entertainment each evening very good, especially Chris Chaplin, (love you! I am a widow and went with my old girl friend of 50 years. Very squashed in dining room but moved to where the coach drivers sit and much better. Looking forward to our next stay early 2017.
