About Us

David, Matthew and Kadriye welcome you to The Devonhurst. We are a traditional family run guest house situated on the Eastern Esplanade enjoying a cliff top location and we offer 7 en-suite bedrooms including 4 with uninterrupted sea-views all equipped to a high 4 star standard.


Tradition & Experience

The Devonhurst has been a traditional family run guest house for over 34 years. We pride ourselves on providing a personal service and welcome you into our business and our home.

The business was started in 1987 when Margaret and David moved with their family with the dream of running a guest house. After 25 years, Margaret and David have been joined in the business by youngest son Matthew and his wife, Kadriye.

The Devonhurst was completely refitted in 1987 and officially opened on 10th July 1987. It has come a long way since then with many improvements and modern conveniences installed throughout the years.


Family Run

We are a traditional family run seafront guest house set in a period Victorian building and welcome all guests into our home.

We offer a personal service and a friendly atmosphere in a building full of character and history and welcome all guests. Nothing is too much trouble and we always go the extra mile to ensure our guests feel at home.

All of our 6 bedrooms are fitted out to a high standard and are all unique. Every room tells its own story and has its own personal style.
