A steep walk down through the woods to reach a beautiful bay. Nothing was too much for the hosts.The rooms were clean and bathrooms well equipped.... More

We stayed for 3 nights in early July 2016 on a half board basis. We enjoyed the location on the cliffs with views out to sea. Our spacious room had a large en-suite bathroom and very comfortable large double bed. The highlight of our stay was the evening meal. Three courses with a wide choice of fresh fish, meats or...

Spent an awesome weekend at the Woody Bay Hotel. Superb setting, peaceful and very Idyllic. The owners, Collette and Martin, really looked after us, were very helpful and the food 5*. Super weekend, hotel, and walks along the coastline.

The hotel is set amongst beautiful woodlands overlooking the Bristol Channel, with footpaths leading down to a small, secluded unspoilt cove. All the rooms and the dining room have spectacular views out over Woody Bay. Because of its location, there is no mobile signal - for us, a boon! Although the exterior of the hotel is looking a little tired,... More

We've just enjoyed two nights and The Woody Bay Hotel and we absolutely adored it. The building is [I think] late Victorian and although some of it's grandeur is a little faded the situation and view more than compensates. Speaking of the view, our room, in fact all of the bedrooms and public rooms look out over The Bristol Channel... More

We have been visiting 'The Woody Bay Hotel' on and off over the past forty-odd years; we have enjoyed each and every visit under all five different owners; we have seen the hotel diminish in size until now there are just four guest rooms, with half of the hotel now converted into apartments. The magic of this hotel, however, remains.... More

Whilst it's exciting to try new places, we can't help coming back to this hotel, several times a year , for the last twenty. It's changed a bit, but the views and the food, both equally sublime , keep drawing us back. It's a challenge to go back home!

We were welcomed by Martin and Collette our hosts as soon as we got out of our car. With an offer of tea on the verandah we were starting to relax at the start of a very pleasant 3 day stay. Our room offered a spectacular view of Woody Bay and beyond out into the Bristol Channel to South Wales.... More

The Woody Bay Hotel, run by the very welcoming Collette and Martin, is comfortable, beautifully located and offers a relaxing ambience. Terrific library to browse in and socialise with other guests; the meals were well presented and delicious. well worth considering for a quiet weekend with dozens of walks and excursions nearby.

My husband, myself and a friend have just returned from a two night stay at this wonderful hotel. We all loved the hotel and it's wonderful owners. The area is amazingly beautiful. The rooms were very comfortable and exceptionally clean. We were on half board so had breakfast and dinner. I think you would find it very difficult to find... More
