We stayed here as a treat while attending a family event, as we were attracted by the location and the views across the bay from many of the public rooms. But the views were the one good thing about the hotel. Our bedroom was tiny and gloomy with several idiosyncratic features, such as a main light switch behind the headboard... More

We haven't stayed at the hotel for five years. Not sure why we left it so long as we have just spent two fantastic days relaxing in an old fashioned family run English hotel. When I say old fashioned I refer to the values that staff show to the guests.

This hotel is amazing! The facilities, rooms, restaurants, bars and staff all fabulous! We stayed with our 1 year old and the staff couldn't have been more helpful from reception to restaurant to cleaners (also super clean hotel). I can't wait to return! If you have kids - or don't have kids this is a great hotel!

I was very surprised to see a poor review regarding room 106. Having stayed in this room on many occasions I have to heartily disagree with the negative review recorded. The room is extremely light, airy and spacious; achieved in part by its double aspect window to the sea and side of the hotel. This is the room of choice... More

Beautiful modern rooms with a beautiful sea view. Bathrooms were lovely, bed was comfy. Breakfast and wifi included which was excellent. Ate in the restaurant which was also excellent. 2 minute walk to the beach with a lovely big outdoor pool although it was closed in December it still looked nice. Staff were all helpful and friendly, thank you.

From start to finish organizing a special birthday treat for my Mum was executed brilliantly by all the Reception Staff. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them. We arrived and was greeted by Becks and Jane, our room was ready and off we went. We was even asked if we wanted our bags carried for us. We are not... More

We are planning a large family birthday gathering here later in the year and wanted to go and check it out first. A bit risky really as we were not sure what we would have done if not up to scratch as all deposits paid. We need not have worried as this hotel does not disappoint on any level. The... More

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
