“Great off season short break hotel”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

Booked for 10 shooters to stay here for 3 days. Very attractive rate for B&B plus dinner in a traditional stylish hotel in great location. Main restaurant menu changed each night, staff and service very professional, food very we presented. Breakfast choice was first class. They also have a locked gun room. I will happily return here when off season 'special deals' are available.

We have been spending a week In the apartments out of season for many years. Woolacombe is quiet in March and wonderful for beach and cliff walks. There are a good number if pubs and cafes open around the area. The flats are reasonably well furnished and warm. Hotel facilities i.e. Pool, sauna and steam room are free to use. A great way to shake off winter blues.

Room Tip: Self catering apartments have two bedrooms and sleep 6 although more comfortable with four people. S...

Holidayed here multiple times and would come again and again (5 stays so far). The location is perfect and children of all ages have fun. The bar and brasserie are contemporary whilst restaurant is formal. Lack room service and adequate lounge areas.

Third visit for lunch after a lovely walk along the beach. Everytime the food and service has been superb and looking forward to trying it for dinner. Well worth a visit.

We took the kids for a break during this last half term at thei hotel, and as with previous expereinces of stays here, we have been very happy with the service they provide. Kids love the entertainment at night and lots to do with them within the hotel even on a rainy day. Food at the restaurant was very good, however I think that there could be a little bit more variety with the breakfast offerings. Limited continetal selection for breakfast, apart form croissants and some bread and cheese. A variety of pastries and some cold meats would be appreaciated by those who do not prefer the traditional british cooked breakfast.


The hotel has removed the "monkey bars" clibming frame for the kids and was told that this was due to health and safety issues. Kids very much enjoyed this facility last year. This year the kids play area could benefit from some refurbishment.

My only real complaint is the matress in the double bed. The quality could be better i.e. pocket sprung mattress with a matress enhancer (feather or memory foam) would have improved the quality of our sleep.

Other than that staff were very helpful and accomodating to guests and thier requests. Most importantly, my kids enjoyed thier stay and as parents we feel rested and happy.

Keep up the good work at Woolacombe Bay Hotel!

Room Tip: if you are with children ask for communicating rooms when making a booking

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Much of the Hotel has been lovingly restored from the mid 1800's, creating it's unique and tranquil atmosphere. High ceilings, chandeliers and comfortable, quiet lounges are a testament to that era, and where first class modern amenities are required, they have been skilfully incorporated into the existing Woolacombe accommodation. We place high value on our staff. Trained to be attentive yet unobtrusive and to provide the kind of personal service that is so often hard to find. ... more   less
