I must say this hotel is lovely and we have stayed here over 5 times in the last few years and every time was great except our last stay (14th Dec) when we stayed in Room 19. It is located directly above the main entrance/exit so noisy from the outside, it is also next to the stairwell so you could... More

Overall, we enjoyed our stay here, on a discounted Travelzoo promotion, and were given a spacious and comfortable (north-facing) room and complimentary drinks on arrival. The public rooms were festively decorated, which added to the sense of occasion. The staff were excellent. Top marks go to the young man handling the laundry trolley from whom I asked for help in...

I went as part of a group of 6 for a birthday celebration, and I could not fault the venue. The surroundings were delightful, and the hotel immaculate and full of character. We had lunch, evening meal and breakfust, all well presented The bedrooms were spacious, well decorated and the beds very comfortable, with good on-suite facilities

I took my mum to the Christmas Fair last weekend as part of her birthday celebrations. We took a stunning walk around the grounds and the building is beautiful however, that's where our good experience stopped. We decided to have a hot chocolate, under the illusion that Bovey Castle would surely do a delicious job of this wintery drink. When... More

Gorgeous setting and great experience, we stayed in a lodge, super comfortable and spacious. Service was fantastic, warm and enthusiastic. Truly dog friendly, which was a big bonus. Fab spa treatments and afternoon tea is a must.

We had an amazing time, such a beautiful building, friendly staff, clean. My husband booked a red letter day festive afternoon cream tea (an Anniversary present), something I had wanted to do for a long time at Bovey Castle. I loved it, only wish I had not missed the Christmas fair the day before! We will be back and are... More

Thanks to the amazing Federico Aresti and his team for putting on an amazing Christmas Fair. There was such a wonderful atmosphere. I stayed in a lodge which was spot on for catching up with friends and impeccably clean. I highly recommend.
