A lovely castle in lovely surroundings. Throughout our stay all the staff were very polite and very attentive. Ate in 'Smith's brassiere' for the 1st evening and meal was good. Ate in the main dinning room 'The Great Western' the following evening and it was an exquisite fine dinning spectacular. Our room was superb with all the complimentary additions that...

A beautiful hotel set in lovely grounds which were a joy to walk around. Room was perfect with a newly refurbished bathroom. Quiet with great views. Food in the brasserie was great. The main restaurant was a little odd but we had a reasonably enjoyable evening meal there. The spa was very relaxing and the pool nice to use (we...

I am sorry you were disappointed with the afternoon tea - as you can see from other reviews it unusual to receive such comments and I will be discussing the same with the Executive Head Chef. Please do not let this deter you from trying us again as I do feel yours was an isolated occurrence. Kind regards Greg

Had this as a Christmas present from a friend of ours and we had a great time. The afternoon tea was fantastic and the staff were on the whole brilliant and it was a shame that one male waiter kept walking through the lounge, looking at us, looking at his watch and tutting... Until that time it was a very...

We booked for a 5 day/4 night stay. On arrival to the hotel you are greeted by the doorman, who valet parks your car, handles all the luggage to your room, and escorts you there. The staff are so friendly and can't do enough for you. Breakfast in the Great Western Restaurant is faultless, and very accommodating to families, ensuring...

Recently spent two nights at Bovey Castle and had an amazing time - from the moment you enter the drive that leads up to the hotel you know that this is going to be special.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set within its own private estate on the dramatically-beautiful Dartmoor National Park, Bovey Castle is a five-star country house hotel and an unrivalled destination for a luxurious rural retreat. Built at the turn of the century, Bovey Castle has remained loyal to the subtle vision of grandeur upon which it was founded, and the understated-elegance of this bygone era continues to echo throughout the hotel. Within the 275-acre estate sits the 64 bedroom hotel and 22 granite lodges, both offering luxurious accommodation for family breaks, activity holidays, romantic escapes or corporate and incentive team building. The championship 18-hole golf course surrounds the historic manor house, while the estate lends itself perfectly to Bovey Castle's extensive selection of on-site resort activities. Immerse yourself in the luxuriously-appointed décor and outstanding service, relax in the holistic spa and indulge your taste buds with decadent food and fabulous wines. ... more   less
