Visited the hotel for a 'Champagne Tea' really great service and food served by an attentive staff. The surroundings are spectacular. Really worth it for a 'Special Treat' followed by a walk in the grounds.

Bovey Castle is a stunning Manor house in a beautiful location. Served in one of the delightful lounges, I have visited many times for afternoon tea which has always been first class in every way. However, on a visit this week which I had looked forward to, our tea was served in the main restaurant whereupon the service, tea and... More

We drove out to have a break for the afternoon. We ordered drinks and waited on the terrace. Unfortunately after 30+ minutes the drinks hadn't arrived. We went to the bar to ask about the drinks where the bar attendant said that 'if we had ordered the drinks they would be on their way'. After 45 minutes no drinks arrived... More

Mixed experience, very grand setting and very professional welcome where your car is parked for you. Once inside however the service was disappointing. After placing our order for tea which came fairly promptly followed by sandwiches,scones and cakes we were just left,no offers of more tea or food, nobody came to check to see if everything was to? We had... More

Took my Dad for golf on his 72nd birthday, with my brother and brother in law. The whole experience was good, being greeted as we arrived in the car park, friendly staff and a beautiful course. Would recommend to anyone who wants to play a top golf course in a lovely setting.

We stayed at Bovey Castle for 2 weeks in May in Rose cottage with our two dogs. This is now our 5th stay and our best yet. Under new ownership there has been a lot of refurbishment work completed that its really benefited from and clearly a considerable investment. Golf course as ever was in fantastic condition and the new... More

My fiancé booked a room for 2 nights as a surprise for my 30th Birthday. The place is situated in a very stunning part of the country side and the "house" itself is very beautiful. We spent 2 amazing nights and days there. We ate twice at the restaurant and we were very impressed by the food and the attention... More

We stay 2-4 times a year and the hotel holds some very special memories however, the hotel feels different and not necessarily in the best way. The standard of service waned during our latest visit following the opening of Smith's which, unfortunately feels much like that of a corporate hotel and although the food was good, it has a limited...

Visited here for my boyfriends birthday treat for champagne afternoon tea! Loved all the little touches and the staff were lovely that looked after us. The food was gorgeous though! The only issue we found was after ordering another glass of champagne each they were £18 a glass! I think it was very overpriced for £36 for 2 glasses I... More

This impressive Manor House is set in a wonderful location with stunning views overlooking a brilliantly maintained golf course. The downstairs sitting areas are well furnished and embrace a variety of styles - the 18th century Adams room, Mock Tudor features and Art Deco touches. However, there is a lack of attention to detail, which one expects at a 5... More
