We contacted this hotel prior to the start of our holiday to use The Haven Spa within, for a deep tissue full body massage. Facilities were excellent, and my husband and I both felt much better afterwards. 55 minutes of pure relaxation. We were told to take some pain relief in the evening if we felt achy, and to rehydrate... More

The hotel allows non residents to enjoy the indoor pool, sauna and jacuzzi facilities for £7 each - the staff are very friendly! It also has a nice bar area which serves a great G&T. The outdoor seating area is also perfect to enjoy a drink on a warm summers evening.

We stayed in the Woolacoombe Bay Apartments and the location is great for the beach and also use of the hotel facilities but the accommodation is dated, dirty and damp. The walls were damp and painted over, curtains were very old and felt damp and musty. The hob needed a good clean and kitchen surfaces were sticky from cooking fat.... More

We ate in the brasserie attached to the side of hotel, great service, food lovely and friendly staff. There were 3 acoustic musicians performing in hotel basement till 10:30 pm, all very enjoyable. Cannot comment on the hotel rooms etc but all seemed orderly and efficient.

All were friendly, polite and helpful, you got the impression nothing was too much trouble. We ate lunch at the hotel and ordered room service... Both amazing! Breakfast has... More

This was a stopover for us on our route home from Newquay. We looked at hotel reviews, on a couple if different sites, and they all seemed positive. The hotel and location are brilliant, as was the room we were given, the weather was terrible, but looking at the views and outside pool area, it all looks beautiful in well... More

We wanted a family holiday where we could take our dogs. After much discussion at the time of booking, decided to stay in the apartments. It is the worst place I have ever stayed in my life, we left after 2 nights. I spent most of the days we were there being offended beyond belief. It's a real shame as... More

The hotel is stunning and has an awful lot to offer, it caters for everybody ie families couples etc , the food in both restaurants is truly amazing and the service is first class,... More

I used to own a beauty clinic, and have had some of the best therapies provided. Therefore I would like to recommend Claire, as one of the best therapists I have ever met. Her massage was in the top two I have ever received. Awesome! Please don't inundate her though as any therapist should only do a maximum of 3... More
