We spent our Ruby wedding anniversary weekend at the Woolacombe Bay hotel. Paid extra to upgrade to a sea view room. The view was magnificent but the room was a little small and the ensuite very small for a four star hotel. The hotel facilities were excellent, indoor pool and spa, wonderful lido with drinks and food and very attentive... More

The treatments by the therapist was average, didn't feel refreshed, by the time I used the pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi it took about... More

Attended a lovely wedding reception at the Woolacombe Bay Hotel, the location and grounds are amazing. The food and service was excellent and the staff great the only thing that let this venue down was its accessibility which in the function room area of the hotel was non existent, there were no disabled toilets unless you went to the main...

Hit this place just for a drink at the end of the day. Had sharply presented bar staff provide just as sharp a drinks service - everyone likes their G&T just as they like it. Sat outside watching the sun go down - a little bit of heaven when Woolacombe was heaving. Bar staff's approach and service, where so many... More

Stayed here for just a night. Reception staff were lovely - good start. Got to our room and what a disappointment... We had to walk trough restaurant to get to it, felt like we would be placed in staff room, what an embarrassment. On top of that, in the morning, we arrived to have our breakfast and politely asked lady... More

I stayed here for a friends wedding. The food was lovely, the service was excellent and the location was perfect. The room was nice, clean and tidy. Close to the beach and the facilities are easy to access. The sauna and hot tub was again very clean and the wedding food and entertainment was 100%. I would recommend this hotel... More

Nice hotel in a good location but was disappointed with the room as it was quite expensive and my room did not even have a sea view. Room was nice, but not worth that much money. The pool was nice and the breakfast lovely. Rest of hotel really nice as are the grounds. Good location for walking the coastal path.

Stayed for the first time in newly decorated room on second floor with outstanding view over pool and to the beach. Everything first class. Will visit again. Outdoor pool area very comfortable although pool quite cool. Bbq cooked on warm days there at pool bar.

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
