I visited Bovey Castle for afternoon tea with my mum. WOW!!! such a beautiful building and surrounding grounds. The staff were superb and so friendly, inside the hotel itself was stunning, we were a little early so sat in one of the many lounges available. We sat in front of a big fireplace with a lovely roaring fire!!! We stayed...

Had dinner in the Great Western Restaurant with 10 others, all of whom were resort members so received a 20% discount. The quality was dire for £ 75 a head with each person having 2 alcoholic drinks and only 2 courses. To make matters worse the veggies asked for some vegetables with their meals to be told the chef he...

Dear Andrew Thank you for taking the time to review us on Tripadvisor, I am really sorry that you were disappointed with your Dinner in our Exclusive 3 Rosettes Great Western Restaurant. Please allow me to correct that the complaints were dealt with, but unfortunately you never replied back to our 2 contacts? Kind regards Francisco Macedo

Stayed in Bovey Castle on Friday night and absolutely loved it. When I booked the night away I wasn't expecting everything I experienced. Absolutely beautiful location and the building itself is out of this world. The service was exceptional with nothing too much trouble. The food was brilliant and the renovation of the building caused no disruption to our visit....

I had organised a Birthday weekend for a large group of friends and family many months in advance. Despite having received verbal and written confirmation of our accommodation in their fantastic lodges, I was badly let down by their Events team less than 24 hours prior to arrival. After several frantic calls the situation was resolved, but it should not...

We spent a fabulous weekend here staying in one of the lodges. There were 24 of us staying for a friend's birthday celebrations and after a very tricky start for the birthday boy (accommodation had been altered without his prior knowledge I believe) all was sorted and the weekend a great success. Our meal in a private room on the...

A beautiful hotel in a stunning Dartmoor location. Stylish from the start, with a warm greeting at the front entrance, valet parking, welcoming check-in and escort to the room. The room was stunning. Spacious, warm, beautifully furnished and with panoramic views over the grounds and the moorland beyond. Lovely bathroom with quality toiletries, a great shower (and bath) and fluffy...

We were staying as part of a group for a private party. On arrival we discovered that our lodges had been changed with the explanation that there were issues with the balconies. Indeed, all balconies were out of bounds - no doubt due to health and safety issues. They all looked rather worn and were probably very slippery. It was...

We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite, the room was beautiful with fantastic views over the grounds and an opportunity to watch the falconry display from our window. The receptionists were lovely, friendly, professional and made us feel special. Negative points: The brasserie food was not fantastic, overcooked liver, dry burgers and a few cut up vegetables...

We were last here 3 years ago and so looked forward to a week in a self catering lodge to enjoy doing....not a lot! Got exactly that in spades.

We spent our 25th wedding anniversary in this divine hotel. The staff are incredibly friendly and professional... The grounds and services provided are impeccable yet the atmosphere is calm, 'non stuffy' yet elegant.

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
