Absolutely fantastic. Just back from an amazing weekend. All the public rooms have been renovated beautifully and our suite was simply stunning. The setting is delightful and the light dusting of snow added to the charm. The staff are first class and complete while experience. Thank you for a truly lovely visit. We will be back again once the renovations...

What a truly fantastic place. We stayed for one night in February and I wish we had booked for longer. The staff were beyond excellent. Attentive without being intrusive, helpful, polite and so efficient. The girls on reception gave us a wonderful greeting at check in. The room was superb. Spacious, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. We had several spa...

We arrived at Osian Castle-- oops, my apologies, I mean Bovey Castle by King Osian, who showed us to our rooms (which, to me and my girlfriend's delight, had been upgraded) and they were extraordinary. The whole week was a pleasure, from gorgeous rooms, all unique in design, tempo and atmosphere, and the grounds and the facilities had this nasty...

Over the moon with our stay at Bovey. Truely fantastic experience. Our children were overwhelemed with the extra large Christmas Tree next to the open fire, it was simply stunning. On arrival at our suite the room was beautiful. We stayed in one of the newly refurbished rooms. Tastefully decorated, the bathroom was large with a lovely roll top bath....

We stayed overnight as a surprise for our friends birthday and not visited before were a little apprehensive of what to expect.

Unlike the Tea at the Ritz, Bovey Castle is totally rural and located inside the Dartmoor National Park; so perhaps it did come as a surprise to be met by a top hatted, brightly unformed 'Geeves' fellow at the entrance to this glorious Manor House - our Honda Civic was kindly parked adjacent a Ferrari while a hunky 1930's green,...

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
