We always book accommodation hoping for at least 2 things... A comfy bed (Check!) and great wifi (Check! Free and unlimited with around 90 Mbps). Add to that free use of Bicycles and a good location it is easy to see why the Devon is so popular. The only things that were an issue is fairly tired Decor - but we didn't mind as the price reflects this. Also when we stayed (during School Holidays) getting a park after about 6.00pm was a big problem. I assume with people using the Restaurant.
Good value for money. Great location - only a 15 minute walk to restaurants etc. Friendly staff. Comfortable room, especially the bed. Nice warm pool. Free bikes were great fun, you'll be biking the coastal path within a couple of minutes. Would happily stay again.
A great place to stay - fabulous levels of cleaning and great food from the rocks kitchen. Pool area was lovely and great after a full day of exploring. The best bit by far was the service from all the staff that I encountered. All super friendly and went out of their way to help me out ! Much appropriate as a solo traveller :) Thanks guys !
The Devon Hotel is amazing. Well maintained. Spotlessly clean. Beautiful landscaped grounds. Professional, friendly staff. Free golf. Free mountain bikes. Free use of gym and aquatic centre. Great pool area. Love this place!
Our first time staying at The Devon Hotel, but we will be back. We loved the pool area and gardens. Lots of space to relax. We all took advantage of the mountain bikes and explored the coastal walkway. Years since we've been on a bike, but loved it. Big thanks for swapping our room so we got a view of the mountain. We'll be back.
Basic cleanliness & hygiene standards are well below nz tourism & health dept regulations. This is not 'cleaner must of missed a spot today' as manager claimed. The filth in these photos was visible throughout all areas of our motel unit. Heritage Hotels usually have high standards but The Devon obviously doesn't
Had the best accommodation in this hotel price wise n ambiance is very cozy, although my partner forgot her jewelry,we called them to inquire about it, explaining the situation but the front desk lady on shift doesn't even give me the chance to express my concerns and inquiry? Honestly I'm just looking for reassurance considering we've lost something valuable. In my opinion that staff needs to learn better communication skills especially she is on the front desk. Otherwise everything else is fine. 👍
Great stay in a veryreasonably priced hotel that was clean and comfortable. Room was large and included a spa bath. The restaurant bar was great - and staff there very friendly. The pool looked awesome (but a few too many people in it for me to want to jump in). There was free use of mountain bikes which were great for a short ride into the city centre. The room said it had a view - I was expecting the sea but instead it looked out over a pleasant garden area.
Stayed 3 nights Room and price excellent Staff friendly and efficient and helpful Breakfast really good Weather was really bad so could not use the pool but it looked good Hotel was really close to the city center It was an easy walk Parking on site TV hadnetflix and movies All in all a great stay and I cannot fault the devon
Rooms good and had all you needed. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Complimentary options for mountain bikes, gym, large pool, and golf. We’ll presented information book that looked up to date too. Very clean and efforts made to keep grounds looking good Nice pool options with warm water plunge pool and 1.5m larger pool to cool down or play with the kids. Great art placement to give unique wow factor. Very popular which can see carparks fill up at night, but no major hassle as plenty of parking adjacent. Restaurant attached provides great options if you don’t want the hassle of going into town cbd
