Woodbury Park hotel's own accommodation page says that they offer "accommodation with fabulous views overlooking our landscaped grounds and sweeping lawns to Devon countryside beyond". Well that sold it to me, and after booking through Booking.com we telephoned ahead to request such a room. Imagine our disappointment to be given a room with no view at all (101). There were shrubs blocking the view but even if they hadn't it would have been mainly car park, and I can see thaat many other rooms would also have car park views. I asked immediately at reception for a different room with a view, reminding that we had requested one. It didn't seem to have been noted. The receptionist asked if I had booked through Booking.com and when I confirmed I had, said there were no other rooms avaialble. I am not sure if this was an implication that if you book through Booking.com you get no view!
Anyway the room was other wise fine and very clean. i was very pleased that an iron and ironing board came as standard because you so often have to ask for one.
As we arrived over the Sunday and Monday of a public holiday the hairdressers and spa weren't open which was a shame.
The restaurant food was very good with varied choices and a real effort to include locally produced or inspired food. A couple of tips however for whoever trains the restaurant staff: could they please ask if you need anything else once they serve you - we had to wait for mustard and wine. In fact my husband had to stand up and find someone to get us some wine.
The gym is very well equipped. the pool is very nice, except like most hotels of this type rather overun with children, which is great if they are yours, but not so good if you want a quiet swim and only a third of the pool is given up to non child swimming.
However overall we liked this hotel and would return. The golf course looks terrific and the view from the lovely golf club terrace and coffee shop cum snack bar is amazing. the setting for the hotel in the middle of the Devon countryside is lovely and they have lots of other stuff we didn't sample like football pitches and tennis courts.
