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!...

the hotel has a commanding situation in a central position overlooking the long beach,with views of Lundy Island and next to the town. Whilst the building is of an older style the superior double bedroom I chose was very spacious and comfortable, with a splendid sea view and good seating on the balcony, which was put to good use even...

We are driving away from the Woolacombe Bay Hotel, and just can't wait to return! A somewhat large hotel. On arrival we were met by a very friendly lady who checked us in, headed to our room 117 and we were totally amazed by our room, we have stayed in some very nice hotel rooms, but this was stunning, a...

I live locally and come to use the pool, sauna and steam room. It was recently updated, really clean and lovely to spend time there. The facilities are great. Staff are friendly and make sure you have everything you need. Nice to have a place like this so close to home.

My wife and I spent a night at the hotel in November 2014. We took advantage of an out of season special offer as would not pay full price for just one night away. The hotel is in a great location, overlooking the beach. We were greeted by friendly and helpful staff at reception and our room was clean and... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our hotel. We are pleased that you found the public areas impressive but are obviously concerned you felt your room like the Premier Inn! We have 68 bedrooms in our hotel, and only 7 which are small Classic doubles in which you stayed. We feel that for only £55... More
