This five star hotel is in a wonderful setting with lots of activities available and first class service from their team. Afternoon tea is a must and the restaurant offering is excellent, followed by a walk around the grounds.

Stayed one night. From the moment of arrival till we left it was a wonderful experience. Only one bad point having to pay 12.5 o/o service charge which was added to the bill. This should be up to customers

After a less than perfect visit to Bovey Castle & a meal in the Brasserie last year for my Birthday, our company suggested a 2 day business meeting here. As we hadn't stayed at the hotel before we reluctantly agreed to give it a further chance. Sadly we weren't impressed. The staff are very pleasant but need many rough edges...

We visited the Brasserie on Easter Saturday for a meal and the food and service was excellent. It was busy but the staff were great and very friendly. The pollock dish was sublime! I can recommend this and it was child and dog friendly.

Such a beautiful hotel, nothing is too much trouble from the staff. So much to do or if you want to chill you can. The views are stunning and worth every penny staying there. We loved it. Can't wait to stay again one day, this time with my dog too!

The bedroom and bathroom were beautifully appointed, the grounds delightful to walk around, evening meal in the Great Western restaurant was superb, as was breakfast, the swimming pool was great,...

On arrival at the hotel we were greeted by the valet staff who parked our car and took us straight to check in. We were an hour early for check in but reception checked...

We had booked through secret escapes. The offer includes accommodation in a castle room, glass of prosecco, evening meal and breakfast. In all a great offer. On arrival we parked in the front court yard with easy access to the hotel. We avoided the valet parking, nothing against the service but just prefer to park and unload the car at...

Always wanted to stay at Bovey Castle since seeing it featured on television a few years ago and we eventually found the time on our holiday to visit and we were not disappointed.

From arriving to valet parking, swimming in the superb pool and fine dining this was an experience not to be missed. We were given a room upgrade so had stunning views and even though there was renovation work going on you would not have known. The beef wellington was an episode of delight and the staff faultless.

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
