We have visited the Woolacombe Bay Hotel for our fifth time and they keep exceeding our expectations. As a director of a service consultancy company I like to think I have a keen eye for detail, and I have to say that the staff, food, accommodation and leisure facilities are simply fantastic. If you are looking for a relaxing break... More

We stayed for two nights as a treat - couldn't wait for the sea views! The rooms showed on the website looked lovely and I booked a luxury sea-view room. The first room we were shown to was like walking into a grey, pin-striped box. Dark carpet, dark grey furniture, matching dark grey curtains and a seriously dated bathroom. Additionally,... More

My fiancé planned a surprise visit to this gorgeous hotel for valentines day. It was absolutely perfect. The valentines package included champagne, chocolates and roses, a wonderful surprise to walk into the room and see. The room we stayed in (103) was beautiful and had everything in it you would need. The views were fantastic and the balcony was big.... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in November with our four month daughter. It was our first break with our daughter and we were concerned how a small baby would impact on other guests and the hotel staff. We did not need to worry as the staff were extremely accommodating and the guests were very considerate. We... More

Went on holiday in July this year to Woolacombe and two evenings we enjoyed having a drink in the Woolacombe Bay Hotel bar! Even though we were not guests we felt welcome and the service was excellent! The bar team were very helpful. Lovely setting! Thanks.

The best hotel in Devon. We have booked for next year and can`t wait. Next year will be our sixth stay and to be honest I can`t see the family going anywhere different for the next few years. After leaving the hotel this year, during the drive home to Oxfordshire, I asked the family whether we should go to Disney... More

Me and my partner stayed here in Septemeber and it was amazing! The hotel is very clean and the staff were excellent. When we stayed, it was just about the end of summer and lucky we caught the last bit of sun! We were able to go out in the swimming pool which was beautiful! Defiantly would recommend this hotel!...
