Stunning property very good staff good rooms so why only 4 stars. I believe the hotel needs to look at its food service. In our case a very long wait for a main course of steak ordered medium rare served bleu and the asked to be cooked a little more was followed by a 20 minute wait for the same...

Really enjoyed every minute of my stay, it was quite a 5 star experience. The valet parking when you arrive just sets the tone for the whole experience. All the staff are so polite and welcoming. I stayed for two nights. I had a wonderful afternoon tea in the Lounges and a 3 course dinner in the Edwardian Grill restaurant....

My husband and I stay here every year and really love it. The rooms are clean and tidy and stocked with Elemis products which are topped up daily. The grounds are stunning and the staff are friendly and professional. We did have a teeny mishap with our booking for dinner one time and were left waiting a while and then...

Just returned from a fabulous weekend at Bovey Castle. Stunning situation with elegant interior. We enjoyed lovely food from both restaurants and impeccable service from Federico Aresti, the hotel manager and his staff. Lots to do, but we enjoyed walking on Dartmoor, playing golf and the swimming pool. I & G

A beautiful main house with a lovely scent of burning wood. This is our second visit as the attitude towards kids is great and the setting and hotel is the perfect venue for a tradional hunting lodge winter getaway or summer weekend. An impressive location that could give so much more. You are paying 5 star rates but not receiving...

We stayed at Bovey Castle to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It is more expensive yes but for a special occasion it's well worth it. As soon as you walk in you are hit with that lovely open fire smell and the staff make you feel very welcome. Service is great. We had a superior castle room which was lovely and...

I recently stayed at Bovey Castle with my family for a weekend break. Federico, the Hotel Manager and his staff are really helpful, friendly and professional. The food in both restaurants was extremely good. The only complaint was that we were put in a room that was totally overlooked by the patio and had to have the curtains drawn all...

We stayed at Bovey Castle for 2 night for a friends wedding. On arrival you can't help but be impressed, both with the building & the views across Dartmoor National Park. Besides the castle accommodation, they have 3 bedroom lodges with kitchens & lounge, which proved to be a little easier on the wallet if you can get 5 or...

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
