5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Upgraded to a Superior Castle room with lovely view over the valley. Very comfortable bed and enormous bathroom with walk in shower and bath. The room itself had a very relaxing atmosphere and we sat in the two armchairs and looked out of the window a lot. We ate in Smith Brasserie and the staff were extremely friendly and the... More

I took my mum here for a champagne afternoon tea treat for her birthday. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and professional. They valued our custom as much as they valued other guests' and were eager to please to ensure everyone had a lovely time. They even wrote "Happy birthday Alison" in chocolate on a china plate accompanied by two... More

Really lovely stay, the rooms are beautiful the food was good and the whole atmosphere was really warming- the open fires and the smell of woodsmoke was lovely. But what really makes the experience special is the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff. They couldn't do enough for you. Special mentions to the chap who took our archery session and...

We have stayed here a number of times over the last few years and have always enjoyed ourselves and been well looked after. We have stayed in different rooms in the hotel including a couple of suites and have also stayed in a lodge. We have stayed at different times of year and for different lengths of time. So, we...

Thank you for the 5 star rating and glad we are one of your favourite places in the world. I am glad you keep returning and that the team look after you, as an aside you can have afternoon tea in the lounges , so not just served in the restaurant. Keep coming back ! All the best Greg Fehler More

A day on Dartmoor is something we have not done for some years and perhaps today could have been better weather wise,that said we found Bovey Castle. The staff were splendid in allowing Sue to look around,she was impressed with just about all she... More

After a disappointing visit during the summer we gave Bovey a second chance and stayed over New year. Stayed in a Lodge as we had our dog with us. We were looked after very well and despite some dreadful weather had a fantastic break. Sheer relaxation and leisure, we will return this year!

I have been longing to stay at Bovey Castle for a long time and got my chance at the beginning of January for a birthday treat. The service is impeccable especially when you first arrive and are greeted by staff waiting to take your baggage and park your car. The checking in was quick and easy and we were soon... More

This is a hotel in which you must visit once in your lifetime! We went for afternoon tea in 2015 and the setting is simply delightful. The grounds and facilities are magnificent and the food was delicious. It would be a perfect place to visit in any season.

Had a fabulous spa day today courtesy of Travelzoo. Hotel is being beautifully refurbished. New treatment room area is gorgeous, pool and changing rooms dated but the rest of the building makes up for it. Service was faultless, in particular the lady at reception in the spa.

Visited for a night with my daughter. Our room was upgraded and was large and spacious with a completely separate bathroom. Nice decor and everything immaculate. The staff were all very friendly and polite. The main lounge areas of the hotel are beautiful with huge fireplaces and wood panelling. Food in the Brasserie was excellent, the spa treatments were first... More
