My sister and I have stayed many times at this very special hotel and this was another wonderful break. As usual the friendly staff, the warm welcome and the lovely family atmosphere made the few days we were there very special. As my sister said on arrival, it's like coming home. Thanks to everyone, we will be back.

We stayed just one night at this hotel but would certainly stay again. This is a very traditional seaside hotel, with many guests who have returned time and again, some over several decades. The restaurant is ideal for longer stays, with a good range of offerings, mostly traditional but with a modern twist, and all very well prepared and presented....

Stayed at the hotel last weekend for one night and wished we could have stayed longer. The staff were so friendly and a special thanks to the lady on reception who was very accommodating with our booking. Breakfast was delicious with a lovely view of the sea.

We stayed here for 4 nights as a special anniversary treat from my parents. They have stayed here many times, it was first time for us and we loved it. The hotel is lovely, really nicely decorated in contemporary style but with some nice classic features too. We had a double room with a small balcony overlooking the sea and...

We don't usually stay in such large hotels but this one coped well. Food was excellent with a good choice. When full some guests are seated in an annexe off the dining room. Not so bad in the evening but gloomy in the morning when you have walked through a sun filled dining room. Go for a room at the...

We stayed here for three nights between Christmas and New Year, very much a spur of the moment decision as we only booked on Boxing Day. This was our third visit to the hotel, the last time was in 2010 and it has been revamped since then but fortunately without losing any of its character and charm. We had a...

My wife and I stayed at the Kingswood and Devoran for a three night New Year Break and we were delighted with the whole package. The food was far better than expected and the friendliness of the staff was second to none. The Hotel is clean and looks like it has been recently redecorated. We were in room 120 -...

When we phoned about a break for the weekend before Christmas, the receptionist advised they had a 4 day long weekend full board break for a little more than the 2 days we had planned. We booked the extra days, and had a very relaxing stay. The staff were very helpful, as we found out on previous stays. Being off...

We have just returned from our second visit to the Kingswood and. Devoran hotel and all I can say is that the second was even more exceptional than the first. So as not to bore the readers I will not go on too much, although I am tempted. The rooms were lovely , we visited with friends occupying 107 and...
