We stayed in the hotels flats, located just up the road from the main hotel. 2 bedrooms and plenty of space, especially if dogs are taken. We arrived on the 29th and spent a lovely time walking along the beach and using the hotels facilities. On NYE we attended the ball and had the most wonderful time, great setting, great... More

We booked the New Year Break at this hotel after high recommendation from family who had visited before, and were not disappointed. The hotel itself is charming, the decoration and public rooms are excellent and well furnished. Our bedroom was facing the sea with a lovely balcony, on to which we ventured to enjoy the sight and smell of the... More

The bathrooms are stylish and laid out well with plenty of thick quality towels. The staff are very friendly as if nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast at this hotel is... More

Use of the hotel facilities, and nice to have a drink in the brasserie or hotel bar. Didn't eat in the hotel this time but food always looks good with a... More

Went to the Woolacombe Bay hotel over Christmas. Got to say, thoroughly enjoyable. Every one was extremely friendly both staff and fellow guests. Standard of room and food was excellent and close proximity of the hotel to the village and beach means you can soon walk off any over indulgence. Considering all that had been provided, thought the bill was... More

We went for a three night package over Christmas and were not disappointed. Our room was modern, clean and spacious. The wind whistled a bit on the sea facing doors, but it was December and with the curtains closed, this wasn't too obvious. Food was plentiful and delicious. Staff were polite and friendly. We would highly recommend this as a... More

My wife and I booked two nights in this lovely hotel, we attended a wedding on the Saturday before leaving on Sunday. The staff were very friendly and we used the spa facilities. The rooms were comfortable and well equipped, however I believe the rooms at the front of the hotel had the better views. The breakfasts were included in... More

Just returned from a 2 night break staying for the first time at this wonderfully located Hotel with it's own private access to a stunning sandy beach.

Wow. Just wow. I trailed the Internet for a few days to find a luxury spa break and this hotel kept coming up constantly. After thoroughly reviewing their website I decided to book a little escape away for my fiancé and myself for 2 nights. Booking spa treatments at the same time. Booking was incredibly easy and the website is... More
