Myself and my partner stayed on a dinner bed and breakfast package on a Saturday night in May 2016 and overall we left feeling disappointed. The positives, to begin with - the valet parking is great and reception staff gave us a very warm welcome. The grounds are obviously beautiful, as is the castle, and we enjoyed the pianist as...

What a wonderful setting ! The manor house is beautiful and offers the opportunity to enjoy a round on a testing and well manicured parkland golf course. I felt guilty at the thought of taking a divot on the pristine fairways. The hotel offers a range of activities. The staff were attentive, pleasant and helpful. The accommodation was beautiful.

We have just returned from a much needed break at Bovey Castle. All the staff we encountered during our stay were friendly and professional, making us feel extremely welcome. We had a Valley Castle room which was very luxurious and spotlessly clean, with a beautiful view. The room did not have air conditioning and was very warm so we had... More

We recently held an event at Bovey Castle and it was handled superbly. Every detail was catered for. The facilities and food are both amazing as well! You won't beat it for a location either, the grounds are beautiful! We stayed in a lodge which was superb but our guests also said their rooms were fantastic.

We have only stayed in Bovey Castle once. We live so close by it is not a place we do stay. However, if we move away, we shall stay there often! We visit for "food with friends" but for the first time in ages, we ate as a couple

Having just returned home from this hotel, I wish I could of stayed for the weekend. The location is so peaceful, the golf course is truly wonderful and the hotel itself is full or charm and wonder. Without a doubt, I'd return in a heartbeat. 5 stars.

Setting was amazing but the hotel is a little tired. Our room had painted over damp and the general soft furnishings were tatty. The bed was super comfortable. The hotel bar is open late and whilst pricy it is extensive. Breakfast was a disappointment. There was a choice of buffet or a la carte; but the a la carte was... More

What a Beautiful place and setting. Arrived around lunchtime, our bags were carried to our room and a quick tour was given as we walked there. Staff friendly and very helpful. The food was amazing in taste and design. Sad we had only booked for 1 night can't wait to return.

My husband treated me to a night away in this most beautiful castle. And I have to say we were blown away by the quality of the food served and the helpfulness of all staff. We stayed in a castle room which was outstanding. With the biggest bathroom I think I've ever seen. Can not wait to go back again.

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
