Having stayed in this hotel upwards of 5 times. We still find it as excellent as the first time we stayed. All members of staff are brilliant and are able to helpin anyway possible. All I can say is you will enjoy yourself.

Booked through booking.com 4 months before our visit. There is a choice of Estuary or golf view, and being a golfer i requested the golf view room.
I also thought i had booked a double room with double bed but was given a twin bedded room on the ground floor with a view of the car park.I was so disappointed - Reception staff were helpful and moved us to a double bedded room , but sadly still on the car park side of the hotel. I was led to believe from brochures/website that the rooms are luxurious , sophisticated,& spacious, they are fairly average with small windows - a better description would be pleasant and comfortable. The estuary views side of the hotel is actually a view over the large car park which is bounded by trees, though you can see land to the right hand side but despite my best efforts i couldn't spot any water. Why say Estuary view, when it is a car park view? Once i had got over my initial shock i did enjoy my stay - the breakfast in The Atrium is one of the best i have had in any hotel - great range of fresh fruit from the buffet and an excellent cooked breakfast. Staff very pleasant and nice leisure facilities with a lovely warm pool, sauna and jacuzzi. Very odd to have to pay for Wifi if you wanted it in your room (don't mind in a budget hotel but was surprised at charges here) though there is one computer in reception which you can use free of charge. I looked into the question of not getting a golf view room as requested when booking with the reception staff a couple of times and was informed that as i had booked through an agency (booking.com) this was the reason my request hadn't been granted. Agency rooms, i am informed, are whichever rooms are available on the night. I will be bringing this up with booking.com as i don't see the point of them stating that you should request it if its not going to happen and just causes frustration on arrival. It would also have been very simple for reception to contact me by email when the initial booking was received to tell me this wasn't possible, and to find out if i did infact want twin beds and not a double. As there WAS a double available on arrival - why, when it was obvious we were a couple was i not offered the choice? Moan over - on the positives, nice location, lovely golf course - thouroughly enjoyed a Sunday morning round of golf, nice food, nice friendly staff, clean, efficient. I would stay again (though they might not want me to after this moaning) if i could be guaranteed a double bed with the view i asked for, but i will make it absolutey clear next time exactly what i would like - so be warned - if you do book through an agency you must then make a phone call to the hotel and check you have what you want, or request they confirm by email. I felt like a second class citizen because i had booked this way, yet was paying the same price as everyone else, and please please change your room descriptions - 'quote in brochure from Vivien Leigh - every hotel room should have something beautiful to look at' well, i am still looking?

Room Tip: You have to be absolutely specific and get a confirmation email from the hotel stating exactly what...

We were party of 8, for golf and leisure weekend. Reception on arrival was very friendly, welcoming and efficient. All rooms were ready early, clean and comfortable, but quite hot at night.
All the staff throughout the hotel, golf club and pro shop were very friendly and helpful.
Courses generally good, but greens poor due to recent bad weather. Food in conservatory was good and breakfasts very good. A lovely location and ideally located for trips out.
Our 3rd stay and we will return

We stayed here for a friends wedding. We are a family of 5 with a small baby. On booking the staff went above and beyond to get us the family room to ensure we would be close to our 2 small children and baby could fit in with us. We could check in early and use all the facilities. The wedding itself was excellent. The staff were very attentive and helpful and the venue lovely. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This was our second visit to Woodbury having stayed between Xmas & New Year 2011.The Hotel is in a great location has great facilities & the staff were always helpful & friendly although perhaps lacking the finesse expected of a 4* Hotel.

The food in the Atrium Restaurant was excellent- as good as any fine dining experience in the area including "Tanners" Restaurant in Plymouth.

We had breakfast in the Conservatory each morning which was a great way to start the day!

We thoroughly enjoyed both of our visits & would not hesitate to return again.

I played golf during our last visit - the Championship course is a very good test of golf but was not in the best of condition & at Xmas although open for play the course was so wet & boggy it should have been closed - serious drainage issues need to be addressed.

Stayed at Woodbury Park for my daughters 16th birthday. As hotels go it was very comfortable and the facilities were great. My only moan is the main restaurant is very stuffy with little if no atmosphere. Would visit again but would probably eat in the golfers restaurant

Comfortable, clean and tidy with good breakfast and great leisure facilities so we can rely on a trip to Woodbury Park being enjoyable, relaxing and efficient.

We did experience some loud singing at 3am this time so I knocked on the wall whereupon the noise stopped however it continued so a visit to reception was called for. After 10-15 minutes the problem was solved. I cannot blame a hotel for its rude and thoughtless guests.
