lovely warm welcome awaits

We love this hotel.

Old fashioned quality of service and attention to detail, which has seen plenty of modernisation and upgrading in recent times. Staff are welcoming and always helpful.

Short stay during September

Stayed for two nights in the Kingswood & Devoran Hotel whilst visiting friends in Branscombe.

Would like to have stayed longer but time didn't permit. I arrived in time for the complimentary tea and cakes. After a two hour journey down the M5 on a hot and sticky day this was very welcome. I think the Kingswood & Devoran Hotel is a pleasant hotel with courteous staff, good service and excellent breakfasts with plenty of choice. I had a single room, 218, at the back of the hotel and enjoyed a good night's rest. The room was at the end of a long narrow corridor and then down a short flight of steep stairs so I was glad I packed my luggage in two small manageable bags rather than one large suitcase as this would have been difficult to handle even with the assistance of the staff. A very quiet room even when the windows were open. There wasn't any intrusive noise from passing traffic or activities taking place in the Hotel. My only slight criticism would be of the shower unit. Minuscule. Once the shower door was closed there was just enough space to turn round but not much space to actually have a shower. Parking: I parked in the long-stay car park in Manor Road opposite Connaught Gardens at a cost of £12 for 48 hours. This is about 15 minutes’ walk from the hotel. I understand there is unlimited parking in the High Street but found parking in Manor Road just as convenient.

A really nice hotel

What a lovely hotel clean from top to bottom.

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the best bit the hotel is right on the seafront

definitely one to return to

This Hotel is ideal for travellers such as us looking for comfort, good service, well appointed rooms, and close proximity to the amenities.

I would recommend this Hotel, and definitely return for a weekend break.

Short break

Stayed for 2 nights with my 89 year old Dad.

Very comfy rooms with sea views. Food very good quality and service was great. We had all meals in the hotel and felt well looked after. I was a bit wary of having to double park while checking in and having luggage decanted but it seemed to work fine. Not a hotel for young families but was ideal for our needs.
