    Me and my partner arrived for a pre-booked afternoon tea bought on a Virgin Experience Day. Greeted by a friendly Valet who parked our car for us and gave directions. No disappointments with the fare on offer. Got at least 5 cups of tea from the teapot (maybe tea cosy would be useful here). Sandwiches and cakes all delicious. Staff... More

    We were looked after very well from the moment we arrived - luggage taken from us and the car parked. We were shown to our room which was light and airy with a lovely big bathroom that had a bath and a separate large monsoon shower. Fluffy bathrobes and slippers together with Espa toiletries made bathing very nice. The view... More

    What a shame! A group of us were looking forward to enjoying a coffee and a chat on the terrace at beautiful Bovey Castle.We were warmly welcomed by a meeter and greeter and shown to our table on the terrace overlooking the beautiful gadens. Sadly we then waited over 3/4 hour for our coffee to arrive. When it finally came,... More

    Beautiful first impressions driving into glorious grounds. We were met by very friendly, helpful young men who guided us to the reception for check in. The common rooms in the lobby area are incredibly beautiful with high ceilings and luxurious sofas and open fires - the castle feel we were after. A family of 4 - 2 girls, 6 and... More

    This location and venue are for those who like to take advantage of the outdoors. Set amidst a golf course, the hotel is comfortable for couples as well as big groups, and the staff offers suggestions for walks near and far. The accommodations are first-rate, while the views, from any direction, are lush and magnificent.

    Beautiful setting and hotel. Asked to move rooms due to shabby bathroom and noisy position (over main entrance). Staff did this without any issues upgrading us to a beautiful room over looking the gardens and Dartmoor. Cocktails were great, food was very good. Lovely grounds to explore and great walk through the pretty glen to North Bovey where we had... More
