I have wanted to go to Bovey for some time now, and generally I was not disappointed. The castle has a really relaxed feel with lots of beautiful lounges to relax in, a gorgeous pool, stunning grounds, lots of activities - overall everything you could hope for in a hotel. Although the Castle is beautiful and homey, it is starting to tire in places. Our room had a few bits of damp showing on the ceiling, the grout between the tiles was yellowing, and generally the bathroom was not what you would expect of a 5 star hotel these days. That didnt really bother me at all, but the service in the restaurants (particularly the Grill) was bordering on laughable. We had to ask 3 times for a bread roll, 4 times to get our main course correct, and about 5 times and a 45 minute wait for the birthday cake we had pre-arranged for the table. I would return to Bovey, but would like to see the restaurant service sorted out - currently I do not think it is up to the room rates it demands.
- 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
