My room was very comfortable and cleaned daily. Generous tea/coffee/biscuits provided. Breakfast was cooked to order and I was pleased to see they no longer charge extra for the haddock. Dinner was lovely and portions generous. The spa is very nice with a decent sized pool and various jacuzzi. Also steam/salt/sauna rooms. Where the hotel could improve is on spa procedures. It is supposed to be relaxing, however on 1 visit a group of 3 were already in the jacuzzi with a bottle of champagne . The champagne was bought from the hotel and I am surprised that a glass bottle is allowed by the water. The people were very loud which spoilt the ambience. There seems to be little enforcement or any protocols - another spa visit saw people going straight from the sauna/steam room into the main pool to cool off!! They should be made aware that they should shower first. Having said that the spa is an asset and with a little more thought could be the relaxing experience intended.

Response from Brett Powis, Owner at Lincombe Hall Hotel & Spa - Just for Adults
Responded 26 Nov 2020
Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately, whilst we do politely ask all our guests to be considerate and there are signs up regarding rules, it is impossible to enforce them all on guests nor do we want to stop guests enjoying themselves as long as it does not unreasonably impact on others. As can be seen from the almost continuous 5 star reviews and our recent award of 5 Bubbles (Stars) from the Good Spa Guide, one of only a handful of Spas to have received that rating in the whole of Devon, we do feel we have got the balance about right, allowing all our guests to experience a true luxury Spa in the heart of the English Riviera.

Having read recent reviews I can see that mine is going to be the downer, the one where people wonder what’s wrong with you! I have been quite conflicted about leaving a review of this hotel because my experience was so good and in places quite bad all at the same time and I have not been able to decide on an overall score. But I have thought about the amazing staff in the restaurant and the bar and thought that they do deserve to be recognised and thanked for the amazing job they did. The thing that stops me from being more enthusiastic, and the place deserves enthusiasm, is that my back hurt from the moment I slept in the bed in my room until I left the hotel. None of the chairs in the room or in the hotel seemed to have any support so it wasn't until I left the hotel for an extended period or went to the Spa, that my back stopped hurting. Other guests commented on the poor quality of the beds and this has been referred to in other reviews as well. Perhaps some new mattresses ala Premier Inn would go a long way! I booked quite late, having meant to be in the Canaries, and had a Signature room furthest from Reception in a standalone house that had been connected to the main hotel by a walkway and the noise from the rooms below and to the side was very disappointing, especially as I had researched the hotel from this point of view and it seemed to come up very well. I could hear what people were saying and watching on television. I had gone to Lincombe Hall for some peace and quiet and to relax. I did not seemed to be getting what the website sold especially as there was a busy road outside my window which was only quiet at night time. The view from my window overlooked a car park with dead wood and branches that had been piled and left, probably because it was so far from the main hotel. Not something you want to look out on. I could overlook this though because my room had a sea view, quite unexpectedly and unadvertised. I loved it! Just don't look down! I did complain to Reception about the noise and whilst they took some action to investigate I didn't feel it was sufficient. I am not someone that finds complaining easy. They could have come into my room to listen for themselves rather than stand outside the door of the room where the noise was coming from and decide no further action was needed. A couple of days later a group of lads checked into the hotel with 6 packs of beer into the rooms below me. We really couldn't understand why they had done so except that, like me, they were meant to be away somewhere hot and sunny and could find no suitable replacement at short notice. There was banging of doors, shouting and disturbance late into the night, inside and outside. I didn’t complain because I felt if I hadn’t been taken seriously the first time, they weren’t going to listen to me this time. Fortunately when I did mention it in passing, I discovered that other guests had complained during the night and swift action was taken. Fortunately, the boys didn't stay long. The shining stars in this hotel are the staff in the restaurant and the bar. As has already been mentioned Ben, and I am sorry but I don't remember the names of the other lovely staff, worked very hard and were very good at their jobs making guests stays as good as they possibly could. Sometimes the managers stepped in where needed and it was good to be able to talk to them about their hotel. The chambermaids also worked very hard and were welcoming and friendly. I did feel that most of the girls on Reception were a bit on the cool side and that doesn't really work when you are in hospitality! They seemed to want to be busy with what they were doing rather than spend the time necessary to talk to their guests. The girls at Reception in the Spa mostly could have done better. They seemed a bit bored, didn’t really know all about the whole product they were selling and didn't seem to understand how fortunate they were to have the jobs they did in the current climate. I don't understand how they weren't able to tell me what drinks they had available when the fridge was right behind them. I think that when you sell yourself as a hotel of this calibre staff need to understand that guests expect attentive service. Most hotels have realised that putting guest experience first is the way forward and the way to attract repeat custom. The Spa itself, and the reason I went to Lincombe Hall, did not disappoint. I did wonder why the bucket shower had been removed and the wires left dangling. It spoiled the appearance of the place. I also wondered why spend all that money on the Spa and leave the surroundings outside unfinished. They were very visible from floor to ceiling windows in the Spa. There was even a workman’s wheel barrow just left in the barren surroundings! The Spa was all it promised to be and the two-hour slot that came with the booking was more than enough. In fact I didn’t go every day of my stay because it was too much, lovely though it was. It looked as good as it did on the website. I surprisingly really enjoyed the ice room and going from hot to cold to hot as you are meant to do. After a dip in the lap pool which was very inviting, you could take your pick from 10 different hydro-therapy stations with varying degrees of bubbles and temperature. Social distancing wasn't a problem and everyone respected everyone else. Only one household could be in one facility at a time but this wasn't a problem and people respected the rules. The Spa works hard to help you relax from the moment you step into the Reception. It doesn't disappoint. It does what it says on the tin. You have a lounger each and after time in the pool and all the facilities it was lovely just to lie there and relax in the warm air. There is a menu that you can order from although because the phone was out of order and you had to leave the Spa to order refreshment, it wasn't as relaxed as they intended. I was surprised to be asked to take my wet Spa robe back to my room and use it the next day and wondered how I was supposed to dry it overnight. The same with very large and thick Spa towels. As only 14 guests at a time could use the Spa it was not crowded and apart from the Saturday when an already drunk gentleman and his family decided to use the Spa, it was quiet and relaxing. This gentleman decided to shout and dive into the pools and jump between them, which was actually putting himself in harm's way. I was surprised that the Reception team didn’t intervene, especially as they knew he had had too much. It rained most of my stay in early October but when the weather was better I was able to explore outside. The hotel is on a steep hill and this is not something that is obvious from the website. There is a high turnover of guests, people are mostly there for 4 nights. Everyone I spoke to was very pleased with the Spa experience. The restaurant offers an old school traditional menu and a more modern Brasserie menu. The Brasserie menu was much more to my liking and as I was staying for a week and menus rotated every three days (!) it was appreciated. I did have a really good time. In the restaurant I was greeted by name the first morning of my stay, much to my surprise, and probably because I was staying on my own I stood out more. I was quickly remembered by the staff there and they remembered what I liked to eat and drink and where I liked to sit. I appreciated the view the hotel management took to COVID in that they felt their guests were able to interpret the rules for themselves and didn’t need lots of arrows on the floor to tell them where to go and where to stand. It worked. I had stayed at a hotel on Sandbanks the month before which had taken the opposite approach which didn’t work. People didn’t understand where they should be going, the arrows weren’t clear enough or people just decided to do their own thing anyway. The hotel took care to follow all the COVID rules, they had worked out very well how to help guests do this too. So, if you haven’t had a bad back, book a room here. If you have, stay at the new Hampton Inn being built just down the room and book a Spa day package!
