“Relaxing weekend break”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Stayed for 2 nights as part of a Travelzoo deal. Found all the staff to be very pleasant and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble and advice on things to do in the area was freely offered when requested. The room was a good size and clean with views out over the golf course. Dinner on the first night was restricted, in principle, to the Truly Devon menu which we thought was a bit limited. Not a problem, we were invited to select from the full menu for a reasonable price supplement per course. Food quality was pretty good and well presented. Breakfast was fairly standard fare but lots of it with empty dishes quickly replenished at the buffet.
Used the pool, sauna and jacuzzi. All very nice though a "spinner" to dry our swimming costumes in the changing rooms afterwards would have been useful.
We were a little concerned when we heard that the hotel was hosting 2 or 3 functions on the Saturday night but in fairness we heard no noise in our room and slept well
Only other criticism concerns the free wifi. Signal strength is very poor, we were close to reception, and struggled to get any kind of reliable connection. This is not a hotel we could recommend if "staying connected" is of paramount importance (though some people would see the opposite as a definite plus)
Plenty of parking.
Would definitely go back

Our society had a fantastic time here, the golf set-up and the hotel worked seamlessly for us. It was easy to arrange and flowed really well. Both courses are good to play - despite the weather. The hotel accommodation is ideal and very comfortable.
The restaurant served wonderful food and the staff (especially the Manager "Dawn") worked tirelessly to ensure we had what we wanted. For value for money it is a perfect location, 45 holes of golf, Dinner, B & B for the price was amazing..... now all I need is to book again for next year.

We stayed here for one night, the hotel grounds and staff are excellent. We stayed in a standard room, at £100+ I would have expected more. They are in need of modernising, a lot of all dark wood furniture. Our bed didn't even have a valance. The breakfast is nice and of good quality offering a varied choice.

We saw this on travelzoo. Two couples with blokes who wanted to play golf. Offer was overnight stay with breakfast and table d'hote menu. Hotel looked nice on arrival and check in staff excellent. Room ready early and very clean, small room even though we did upgrade but adequate. Golf course was very good (according to men) staff good. Had lunch at the Terrace restaurant, excellent, sat outside overlooking the lake and the course, really lovely. Had cocktail before dinner and even though there was a menu the guy at the bar didn't have a clue, had to be helped out by the manager who was excellent. Went to dinner in the Atrium restaurant, menu given to us with choice of 3 starter, mains and puds. Asked if we could have al la carte, which we could but extra charge which was fine but it seemed a bit of a problem. There were 3 other tables, atmosphere was dire, dreadful music playing and no ambience at all. Waiter was very young and whilst willing simply had no training, we had to ask to order 3 times. The starters were fine, the main course was starter size and the filet steak was about a 3oz steak, glad we ordered side dishes. A tip would be to eat in the Terrace restaurant, not such a good choice on the face of it but much nicer with a bit of life and freshly cooked with waiters on the ball. My pud arrived and the ball of ice cream plopped in my lap, waiter went red but I had to plop it quickly back on my plate. The breakfast staff, Atrium again, were totally disinterested, poor selection on the buffet with dried up croissants and pastries, go to the Terrace for brekkie selection. Spa was decent enough and even did a couple of classes that you must book before you go. Great central position to get to places so a good base. The guy in the Terrace restaurant (may be manager or should be) with a beard was excellent, seemed to be everywhere and tried to hard to please. Amazing value but need to change that Atrium arrangement.

Room Tip: Second floor golf course view, upgrade its only iro £10.

Stayed here on business last week and had a great stay, top class fitness suite and great food. Newly refurbished Terrace bar is superb if you want more traditional home cooked food. Reception were most helpful, and restaurant staff happy to assist me finding the local caught fish and chips at the Terrace bar, as the main bar menu is a limited. Highly recommend. Well done Mr Mansell !

six of the girls decided on boxing day that it would be nice to take a bit of timeout a couple months down the line..we found the complex doing a special offer online...£50 for an overnight stay,use of the pool,sauna & jacuzzi & with evening meal & full breakfast included....we booked this and then individually chose any treatments we fancied having in the 'Bodyzone' salon. This proved to be the highlight of our stay...the girls doing the treatments were very professional, but also very friendly aswell..we had a collection of treatments between the six of us & I think I can speak for all of the girls & say that we all came away very chilled & refreshed..to such an extent that several of us said we would do two nights next time. thank you for a lovely chilled out experience x

Room Tip: we had twin rooms which were plenty big enough for us..we did have a lounge with one of our rooms wh...

We have just returned from a weekend break at the Woodbury Park Hotel. We used the gym and the swimming pool and were impressed with both. The pool was very clean and there were ample sun loungers for relaxing and enjoying the great views. My hubby also enjoyed a session on the golf driving range. The pro shop could not have been more helpful lending him a few clubs and charging just a nominal amount as a non member to use the driving range. There were also tennis courts, a golf course and a football pitch on offer. I appreciated the lovely setting with the great views and felt relaxed the whole time we were there. It was great to look out of our room and see the golf course and trees and here nothing but the birds singing first thing in the morning. Our room was fine and very clean. A safe and a fridge would have been useful. Would have appreciated more tea bags (and some herbal teas) as kept having to ask for extra and some milk. The bathroom was good with a very powerful shower. We really enjoyed our evening meal. The food was fantastic and we would happily eat there again. Breakfast was fine but not overly imaginative. A few suggestions to include would be - wider selection of breads, some local cheeses, home made mueslis, a bowl of summer berries. Would happily stay there again, it's a lovely part of the world to visit.
