We stayed recently at the Woolacombe Bay on a short break to celebrate my 75th birthday and our wedding anniversary. We had stayed here before some years ago and enjoyed it enough to want to come back. It is difficult to find fault with the either the accommodation, food and ambiance. It is also set in it's own delightful grounds...

I'm not one to normally write a review but given the outstanding service I received at Haven Spa in the Woolacombe Bay Hotel I felt I needed to. Myself and my husband visited the spa on the 18th of May 2017 for a treatment each to celebrate our 1 year Wedding anniversary. I had the reflexology and my husband had...

Can't comment on the hotel itself as I haven't stayed there although the staff at reception were very helpful and friendly when I went to enquire where to go for my spa treatment. The spa reception staff were also friendly and welcoming and seemed very organised compared to some places that I've been. The spa treatments (facial and massage) were...

Had a fabulous time at this Hotel. The staff were friendly and very informative about everything when asked. The food was amazing and being a Coeliac they were extra sensitive on this issue. The location is just perfect, near to beach, shops and other facilities. Free and easy parking with a lock up for surf boards. I've given it a...

Thank you for your feedback of your recent stay, we are disappointed that your experience in our Doyles restaurant was not satisfactory. I have had the opportunity of discussing this with our Executive Chef and he is also unhappy that you went away feeling less than satisfied. We do hope that there could be another opportunity of welcoming you back...

Want luxury, Want excellent service, then this hotel is well worth a visit. Luxury sea view room with balcony is a must in this beautiful area. Staff attentive without being overbearing and nothing was too much trouble. Restaurant service and food lovely. Breakfast certainly first class.

I have been staying in the self-catering apartments/ flats for more years than I care to remember. The accommodation is comfortable but the furnishings are fairly basic, but hey, for one week in a delightful location, it is something that one can put up with. The reception staff, and all the staff in general were very friendly. However, there are...

We used this Hotel on a few occasions last weekend (28th to 30th April). On all visits I asked for the WiFi code to enable internet access. I was told I could not have the code as I was not a resident. How draconian and out of date is this attitude and to differentiate between which customer could and could...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Much of the Hotel has been lovingly restored from the mid 1800's, creating it's unique and tranquil atmosphere. High ceilings, chandeliers and comfortable, quiet lounges are a testament to that era, and where first class modern amenities are required, they have been skilfully incorporated into the existing Woolacombe accommodation. We place high value on our staff. Trained to be attentive yet unobtrusive and to provide the kind of personal service that is so often hard to find. ... more   less
