My daughter held her wedding ceremony and reception here. All rooms were taken for Friday and Saturday by wedding guests. It was superb. Apart from one plumbing problem in one of the rooms, for which charges were waived by way of apology, it was faultless. Nothing was too much trouble, and whatever specific requirements were made were accommodated.. The place... More

A two night break was purchased based on research, primarily from reading reviews and checking the Bickleigh Castle Web Site Our first impressions were mixed, certainly the place has significant character, but the property fixtures and fittings are looking tired, but perhaps on a sunny day this would not be so apparent. The room allocated was small to say the... More

My wife and I stayed at Bickleigh Castle for 3 nights in February 2015. the Castle is well signposted from the main road, and is in a lovely setting on the banks of the River Exe. We had a room in Rose Cottage, and were happy with most aspects of it - the bed was hard, which was not to... More

I was looking forward to this stay but was very disappointed. Service was haphazard. Room hadn't been properly serviced. The bathroom was missing key ingredients ...like loo roll! The bedroom hadn't been cleaned properly. Bed was very hard, which suited my husband but not me. Breakfast in the morning was shambolic. Staff who didn't have a clue, and hid around... More

Well, what can we say? We did have problems on the Sunday morning and this was explained to the guests, most of whom were very understanding. Our chef was unfortunately delayed in preparing the breakfast through no fault of his own, and everything was a bit late. With a large number to cater for and with the need to be... More

My husband and I arrived for our 2 night stay and was immediately impressed with the location. Check in was quick and the lady that showed is to our room was friendly, making recommendations about local pubs and places to eat. We were asked to move our car to the hotel car park from the front entrance where we had... More

Thank you for a helpful and constructive review. The Bar unfortunately we are unable to have manned every evening unless we have more or less a full house of guests; on those occasions we will open the Bar from 6 - 7 and then 9 - 11 if possible, which allows for the fact that almost everyone goes to one...

We stayed here for our corporate Christmas do -yes it was us singing Christmas Carols at 11pm - sorry! Finding the hotel was an experience and part of the charm - although I'm not sure my wife agreed! We started our experience by hitting another guest with the door to reception - sorry again! We had a very proud welcome... More

We had a very enjoyable stay in one of the cottages. Very comfortable, nicely decorated with new carpet throughout. Nice lounge in which to relax, big comfy sofas to sink into. Breakfast was good, we paid an extra £5 each for the cooked breakfast, no complaints. Nice gardens although it was a cold wkend so couldnt make the most of... More

Don't think I'd go back saying that the room was clean with a view of the river and the breakfast was spot on. The let down for me was your not staying in the castle your stay is in the little cottages in the castle grounds and you share with other visitors you either get the up stairs rooms with... More

Thanks for your review. It is always a little disappointing when reviews are written long after the event (five months!) but it is an opportunity to give review readers some up to date information. Firstly, I'm surprised at the comment about not staying IN the Castle, because it is made clear on all booking material that the rooms are in... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed for a Fri and Sat night and really enjoyed it. Location was really nice - the rooms, the castle and Bickleigh itself. We stayed on the top floor of a cottage, had a TV and tea making facilities. Comfy bed and reasonably spacious room. I'm on EE and had no reception in Bickleigh at all... More
