Fantastic building and setting. The staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Three stunning rest rooms with lovely fires. Food in the restaurant was first class. The only thing I could fault was the need for a bit of redecoration our room but I believe this is " in progress". We will be back!!!!!

best place in Devon to relax. Lovely pool, friendly staff, amazing grounds and relaxed atmosphere in the middle of nowhere on Dartmoor. The view is beautiful and the staff couldn't do more to make us feel welcome.

Overall, I really enjoyed my two-day stay here. The location is stunning, the hotel's public rooms impressive, the service was excellent and the food very good. I was staying there for a wedding held nearby, together with several members of my family. While the room we occupied was of a good standard, with an exceptionally comfortable bed and decent fitments...

I think we've been here about five times over the past six years, each time for a week in mid-late October when the trees are turning and the views are spectacular.

Mostly enjoyed our stay. Room was clean and the view was beautiful. Play barn was great and the lady there (S) was really friendly and cared about her work. However as other reviewers have mentioned there was a language barrier with all other, except reception staff (who were friendly). Grounds were well maintained and pleasant to walk around. When I...

It was a late summer early autumn weekend which took us to Bovey Castle to celebrate a wedding. The location is without doubt fantastic and it quickly becomes just what dreams are made of, not just for the wedding party but for the guests who are made to feel they are house guests at a very special event.

After a bum-numbing 3 1/2 hour drive down from London, the gorgeous bright red maple leaf lined driveway from the road to the hotel lifted our spirits. Past a gate lodge so pretty I would have happily stayed there and winding through a beautiful golf course, we got to the hotel entrance and were promptly relieved of the car keys....

Dear Elsa20 Thank you for the great review and I'm glad that once you'd got here you felt the journey was worth it ! Katie has apologised for being rather full of cold but I'm sure she was still smiling. As may be aware we have now started the refurbishment programme so do come back and see the changes soon....

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
