My wife and I, children and grand-children have been visiting this hotel since the late 1970's. We have seen about four or five different owners over the years, together with transformations of the hotel etc., and the current owners of 20+ years, Martin and Collette, have made the hotel, though smaller, more wonderful. Location, views, surrounding scenery, accommodation and, of...

Would recommend staying half board to take advantage of the fantastic seasonal food, cooked to perfection. Great views to be had of Woody Bay and beyond from the terrace and our room. Lovely quiet time, relaxing and being well looked after by our hosts.

Woody Bay Hotel is a small, secluded, husband-and-wife- run Victorian house set in woodland overlooking the sea. Martin and Colette have been looking after people here for over 20 years and are a charming, caring couple. We had room 4 - very comfortable double bed and brand new bathroom. All rooms have sea views - it's glorious to watch the...

We stayed here for two nights last week, having been recommended by a friend of a friend. What a delight! As soon as we arrived, Martin helped carry our bags, and offered us tea on the veranda in the sun. We were only going to sample the food on one night, but could not resist eating again the next night-...

If you want peaceful and quiet, this is the perfect location. Great for walking and for exploring north Devon. Wonderful hosts, very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast choice and content was one of the best we have had and dinner was even better! For a "small" hotel, our room was befitting of a 5* hotel. Would we...

Perfect location for a comfortable and quiet stay, Martin continues his great offerings from the kitchen, Collette most helpful and welcoming. Good location for coastal walking. We stayed early in the season, delighted to find that some trees previously blocking the view are now taken down by parks staff. The view from our room was spectacular. Did a walk from...

The Woody Bay Hotel Is officially a 2 star hotel - in reality more a 4 star hotel. We stayed in room No 1 ,which is really big and has a nice view facing seawards. The king-bed is incredibly comfortable and so is the big bathroom. Dinner was amongst the best we had on our entire trip through Britain ....

Spent 2 nights at this wonderful hotel. Don't really know where to start. Our room was spotlessly clean and spacious as was the bathroom. The view across the bay was superb. Martin and Collette were exceptional hosts..very friendly without being intrusive. The 3 course dinner menu was absolutely delicious with plenty of choice....it was heavenly...
