This is a quintessential English hotel, with an unusual but interesting layout of corridors to the bedrooms. The lounges were sumptuous with large sofas and chairs to sit and read or join friends for a chat. I loved its cosiness and informality. The ground were really well kept and just lovely to sit in and enjoy. With the beach just... More

Looking at the hotel website, there was a lot to live up to. We were not disappointed! The hotel was beautiful with polite and helpful staff. The grounds were stunning and well maintained with views that equal or better anywhere in the world. Facilities wise, all I can say is flawless. The indoor and outdoor pools were brilliant although we... More

We visited the Bistro for a family evening meal but unfortunately there was a mix up with the drinks. I received my Tribute but my 7 year old son was given my wifes vodka and orange complete with drinking straw (he had ordered orange juice) by the waitress while she received nothing. After taking a few sips he complained about... More

Dear Jonathan, with regret there was indeed a mix up with your drinks. Such an incident has never happened before and both our staff and the manager on duty profusely apologised for the error. We would certainly never blame any of our guests in such a manner and we are extremely sad that you felt the need to write this... More

I wasn't anticipating the word "relaxing" would form a part of my review title having travelled the length of the country to Woolacombe with a three year old in tow. However we found the Woolacombe hotel to be the perfect hotel for a family with young children. We were booked into a family suite with three bedrooms, a toilet and... More

We've been going to the Woolacombe Bay Hotel Apartments for the last 16 years. As everyone one says it's in a great location. Over the years things have changed, some for the better some not. This year again I'm afraid there was an obvious lack of attention to details. One shower was out of order all week in the ladies'... More

Just returned from another annual break at The Woolacombe Bay Hotel. Great break again. This time travelled solo with 2 children. Stayed in a suite above the mews. Excellent room. But (and its a big but) .... the accessibility or lack of, is an issue with a little one. Buggy up steps at main entrance, could barely fit in lift,... More

I was very impressed with the hotel, which has a very friendly feel as soon as you arrive. We were lucky and had nice weather so got to make the most out of the outdoor pool. The wall around the sunbathing area prevents the wind from being a problem, making it perfect for relaxing. My room was on the front... More

We spent two nights and I only wish we could have stayed longer. This is one of the nicest hotels in the UK both for setting, quality and facilities. We were blessed with amazing sunshine so spent the majority of our time around the outdoor pool and the service was fab. The only issue I had was with the quality... More
