Booked the hotel on spec just found it on the internet and booked a short break. From the minute we walled tghruogh the door we were treated to the best service of any hotel I have been in before or since. We have been back there on two other occasion one for a Company Management Team Building event, and the...

There are many things that make a hotel special, the attention to detail, the location,the services available, good food, but above all for us, the ambience created largely by the manager and his team! Bovey Castle simply cannot be beaten! Frederico and his team are an absolute delight. Nothing is too much trouble, even during the busiest period of the...

We could not fault the welcome from staff at our recent xmas break. The suite had beautiful views, if a little tired in the decor, especially the bathroom (suite 22). The furniture looked old and tired and if you weren't careful when closing the fridge door it fell out the back of the unit it was housed in! . For...

Stunning location, stunning hotel, stunning customer service... simply stunning! My parents try to go a couple of times a year and they really do l know how to reward their regulars. The hotel manager Federico will always bend over backwards to make our stay a special one.

My family just relocated to London from the States and was looking to experience the English countryside. We were blown away by our stay at Bovey Castle. Easy to access from London via the train. The Castle was beautifully decorated for Christmas and the staff was first class. We fly fished, shot, took the drink making class, attended multiple bovey...

Lovely greeting where the staff took the car away to park saving us the bother, nice touch. Beautifully decorated for Christmas. We booked in the Bistro which overlooked the countryside beyond, glorious. Food was well presented, staff very attentive but it lacked 'something extra' which one would expect from this grade of hotel. While we were still eating the staff...

Adrianandlois thank you for your review and the constructive comments regarding the service charge and the Bistro. The service charge explanation is on the website with a notice in reception as well, also the compendium in the bedrooms explains the reasons and also the fact that it is discretionary - but I am sincerely sorry if you felt misinformed.

Beautifully decorated for Christmas the staff warmly welcomed our afternoon tea party. A good selection of teas (doesn't include delicious cornish tea) and fabulous scones. Sadly the food was placed on a central table owing to the large number of guests and consequently the ritual of individual tea pots and cake stands was missing. Pastries and cakes were surprisingly basic....

Thank you for the review AlisonB and sorry that the afternoon tea did not meet your expectations but it was for the whole hotel and would have been very difficult to serve individually - sorry. Glad you enjoyed the Christmas decorations - the tree in the Cathedral Room was a challenge ! Kind regards Greg

Such a delightful surprise to find a corner of British country life alive and well with loads of Downton Abbey splendour.

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
