This is my second visit to at the hotel and it is every bit as good as the first time. The reception staff are fantastic and the modern rooms are a real surprise in a old exterior hotel. Great setting. Great location. Great rooms and breakfast. My only downside was that I was on a work trip and traveled on... More

My boyfriend booked us a night at the Woolacombe Bay Hotel for my 30th Birthday. We stayed on Saturday 18th April. It was absolutely perfect and my Birthday was made so special. We stayed in room 101, which was a suite. It was beautiful and I've never stayed in a suite before so I was running round like a child,... More

We had a fantastic wedding weekend. The staff, accommodation and food were excellent. This was our third weekend this season, and it has just got better and better. As a family we're considering making this an annual family pilgrimage, if you'll have us, lol. The hotel is run with a quiet military precision never forgetting that the guests ARE guests.... More

You can't beat the view from this hotel. Get a sea view room - ideally one with a balcony and just drink the view in. Other positives include the short walk to get to the beach, the variety of activities to keep you busy if the weather is bad and the friendly staff on reception. The breakfast, however, wasn't up...

Lovely hotel with very friendly helpful staff. My favourite to deal with was Bex she's lovely. The hotel is great. Lovely location. Nice swimming pool and good facilities such as squash courts, pool table, table tennis. Outdoor pools also for when the weather gets better and the beach is a few minutes away. Great place to go on a holiday.... More

We had stayed at the Woolacombe Bay Appartments on a couple of vists but always yearned to stay in the hotel. Thanks to both our boys being at university we decided to give ourselves a treat. We are so glad we did. Everthing and everyone was wonderful. Becks in reception gave us the warmest of welcomes, our room was luxurious... More

We popped in for coffee and sat in one of the adult only reception rooms, overlooking the bay with an open fire. We had the room to ourselves and relaxed on the sofas. Five drinks, including pot of tea for 2 was £12.

We saw this hotel on our first visit to Woolacombe and were smitten by it's superb position in the village and the grounds leading down to the beach. Since then we have returned for a two night stay each year and hope to continue to do so. The hotel is lovely and the staff are friendly and attentive. The food... More

We stayed last weekend with our son and daughter in law who have stayed here before. It is by far the best hotel I have stayed in. We were treated to a Sea view room by our son which had a lovely large balcony from which to watch the sun go down over the sea. The room was large and... More
