I speak for a group of 10 - "the shooting party" - who have switched a multi year allegiance from an Ilfracombe hotel to Woolacombe Bay hotel in the last 2 years, exploiting their Spring and Autumn "deals". I have reviewed this hotel before in a positive light, and once again we found the service and main restaurant food excellent, my room was very clean with flat screen TV with Sea View. They are clearly renovating the Pool area and bathrooms so the hotel is being well looked after. The location is great, a brisk walk along the whole beach (National Trust) and back again before breakfast really salved my conscience before tackling the excellent cooked breakfast buffet (although special orders catered for - eg freshly poached eggs). I arranged a brief birthday "fizz and nibbles" reception in the bar before dinner one night and the staff could not have been more helpful suggesting options within a budget.
This is an excellent 4* traditional feel British Hotel in a great location - the only criticism I have is the WiFi system is woeful, so if you want to www you may be out of luck, as they do not appear to have commercial capacity Wi-Fi hubs, a cause of frustration for all our group.
Management Please note - this is the 21st Century - and wi fi is now a basic utility, like water is to the bathroom!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Much of the Hotel has been lovingly restored from the mid 1800's, creating it's unique and tranquil atmosphere. High ceilings, chandeliers and comfortable, quiet lounges are a testament to that era, and where first class modern amenities are required, they have been skilfully incorporated into the existing Woolacombe accommodation. We place high value on our staff. Trained to be attentive yet unobtrusive and to provide the kind of personal service that is so often hard to find. ... more less
