stayed one night to celebrate wedding anniversary, super welcome with valet parking and quickly available porter for luggage, Very large spotlessly clean room although a little paint on bathroom radiator and staining on the bathroom walls but overall very acceptable and luxurious. Service at reception good but not excellent as had ordered flowers to be put in the room for... More

Booked a night to celebrate my husband's promotion. On checking in the room had damp patches so I asked to be moved and we were. We were upgraded to a beautiful room for which we were very grateful. However no water in the rooms and the lovely touches such as fudge left on turndown seem to have gone. Great meal... More

In June I had a 5 day break in one of the self catering lodges which was beautiful, the grounds are lovely and well looked after, and we used the pool every day. The hotel and grounds are 5 star all the way. I booked spa treatment but was slightly disappointed, the spa has been newly refurbished and my treatment... More

Food was very good although some of us felt it was not served very hot. Lot of staff for this venue which was only one third full and had a stuffy atmosphere, the maître d took our order but was very disappointed to find that when the waiting staff served the meals they had to ask us the customer which...

I don't advise going to Bovey Castle on a whim as it isn't cheap, but we went back to the scene of our wedding-gift weekend en route to Salisbury from a gorgeous weekend in Cornwall. The Bistro has been updated and is welcoming and the food excellent. I think I could have had quite a few more of their light,... More

We were treated to a champagne afternoon tea. The food was nice but there was too much cake for us and we would have preferred more savoury options. Champagne and wine was good. Luckily it was a beautiful afternoon so we were able to sit outside which was lovely with great views over the expansive grounds and had a walk... More

We were looking forward to this as we thought it would be amazing, being a Castle and all... We were guests of an evening wedding reception. When we arrived we were charged £200 for our room. The room was disappointing. It was large but the curtains were stained, the lamp was stained, there was a dirty hand print on the... More

I was a member of a party who were visiting the Castle for the "breakfast". There were quite a few of us and at GBP 20 a head this was a considerable level of income for the Castle. One lady in the party decided that she would only have the Continental breakfast.She then,unknown to the rest of us, and very... More

We drove through beautiful farmlands and rolling hills and some mist to stay at Bovey Castle in early May. This hotel is very luxurious and grand. We enjoyed our dinner in the restaurant and the breakfast next morning was also excellent. The problem was that when we could not get the central heating to turn on in our castle room,... More
