Called in during a busy golf tournament for afternoon tea. This is old fashioned service from a first class establishment. It is quite expensive, but if you are out to impress this is a great place to go. We ate as much as we could, the remaining cakes were parcelled for us for tomorrow. Lovely.

I chose Bovey castle as a quiet upmarket retreat to celebrate our tenth anniversary and also a birthday. We were there a Sunday and Monday in late September. Well after school holidays... I upgraded our room to a superior double castle room with views across Dartmoor. We were given a large attic room with small modern white pvc windows, not... More

Absolutely recommended. Our room was opulent and all the fittings were working, clean and smart. The bathroom was a delight, the hotel splendid and the pool was a marvel. We went early in the morning and we had it to ourselves, only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

Recentlt went for Sunday lunch. Apart from the embarrassingly overpriced wine list the food was truly average, small portions of what appeared to be microwaved pulled lamb overcooked and oversalted, enrolled in a ring of saddened puff pastry, described as 'Lamb leg Wellington', two slices of beef secreted beneath a soggy batter , 'Devon Roast Beef ' were two of...

Stunning venue with beautiful views over Dartmoor. Castle was restored to high standard with great entrance hall and lounge areas with large fireplaces in each room. We chose standard room which was looking over front car park but still very nice. Brasserie was lively but food reasonable for price. Difficult to fault venue or service. Will go back again for...

The initial impressions of Bovey are very impressive as you drive up to the hotel. The grounds and surroundings are beautiful and the interior decor is very attractive. I'm not a fan of valet parking as I find it more of an inconvenience and it is funny that the less impressive cars are parked around the back (my ford focus... More

A friend and I spent a perfect day visiting this spa in this most beautiful part of the country. The spa at the Bovey Castle Hotel is as good as it gets for an historic building.

Starting with the excellent. First impressions are tremendous as is the attentiveness and attitude of the staff. First rate, from the valet parking through to a light lunch on the balcony in the sun. The gardens and grounds are fantastic including lovely walks, and stunning scenery. We arrived early and were made welcome but could not, understandably, access our room... More

I am sorry you were disappointed with the new bedrooms , clearly it is a matter of personal taste and you are the first guest to disapprove. We do close the Great Western during the quieter months and I am sorry this wasn't available whilst you were staying with us. I do hope you will return to Bovey . Kind... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set within its own private estate on the dramatically-beautiful Dartmoor National Park, Bovey Castle is a five-star country house hotel and an unrivalled destination for a luxurious rural retreat. Built at the turn of the century, Bovey Castle has remained loyal to the subtle vision of grandeur upon which it was founded, and the understated-elegance of this bygone era continues to echo throughout the hotel. Within the 275-acre estate sits the 64 bedroom hotel and 22 granite lodges, both offering luxurious accommodation for family breaks, activity holidays, romantic escapes or corporate and incentive team building. The championship 18-hole golf course surrounds the historic manor house, while the estate lends itself perfectly to Bovey Castle's extensive selection of on-site resort activities. Immerse yourself in the luxuriously-appointed décor and outstanding service, relax in the holistic spa and indulge your taste buds with decadent food and fabulous wines. ... more   less
