We enjoyed our stay at this hotel which has been refurbished to a high standard. We were very lucky to have scorching weather so our third floor room was a bit hot - but the sea view was lovely.
We ate in Doyles and also the Brasserie - perfectly good but the choice was a bit limited with no big distinction between menus. We also ate in a numbering of local places so there was plenty of choice.
The garden and pool area was fabulous and close to the beach via a private oath. We enjoyed fantastic service and Anna was lovely brining us food and drink whilst we enjoyed the sun in the garden. This is an idyllic place for families with lots of simple pleasures to be enjoyed.

Stayed: July 2014, traveled with family

This hotel has a wonderful location and substantial grounds.Our reservation was for 2 weeks and we asked for a luxury room with balcony,The room did not live up to our expectations,old furniture wooden floor and austere feel.The restaurant has a set menu each evening with a special option but as we stayed for 14 days it became very repetitive.However staff were fantastic although very slow service.Overall a good hotel but let down by the restaurant and our bedroom which i had to ask for it to be cleaned thoroughly after 10 days and it wasn't so I endured the last few days and cleaned it myself. However the linen was spotless and bed was changed often.It is a shame about our stay as the location is perfect and the beach amazing.we are not sure whether to return but it is a shame as the staff were attentive and courteous .

We stayed at the WBH last week and the service was second to none. Every single member of staff was friendly and helpful. The Bistro is great, location perfect, rooms well appointed (though a proper laptop friendly safe in the room and fridge would be welcome). Outdoor pool, indoor pool, tennis, pitch and put, table tennis, squash, spa - what more could you ask for? Its not cheap, but it is very good!

Room Tip: Go for a sea view with balcony

We recently stayed in a lovely see view, balcony room and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was clean, spacious, lovely bathroom and a very comfy large bed. Breakfast was lovely, great service and a good choice of food. Nice indoor pool. Shame the weather wasn't better as we didn't get to use the outdoor pool. Great service and helpful staff. We ate in the brasserie and the food was good, service excellent. We have stayed before and ate in the restaurant and really enjoyed it.

I am usually quite critical but I couldn't fault the room!! Pricey but well worth it for a luxury stay. My three year old also had a great time.

We picked this hotel at Woolacombe bay because of its proximity to the beach as well as the fact that there's an outdoor and indoor pool. We weren't disappointed. Its situated a short walk to the beach and the outdoor pool is excellent. We booked last minute and as a result needed to change rooms after the first night to move into a suite which was our preference. The Lundy suite was a little basic in terms of decor but had everything we needed. The breakfast was great and there were enough options for all and the staff are very relaxed about catering to children (there's also a kids meal time in the restaurant between 5-5:30).

The only negatives I would comment on are the very limited room service menu (one reason to book a suite is to be able to order room service while the kids are sleeping), rooms don't have air-conditioning which means you need windows open so not great on a Saturday night if you are facing the street like we were, and as someone mentioned before no bar fridges in the room so if you need this with small children best to organise in advance.

But otherwise, it's a good place to stay and we'd not hesitate to go back.
