More than half of our food came out wrong. My guests to which some came all the way from New Zealand and Australia did not get what they ordered and could not eat up to half of what they had ordered. This was a huge embarrassment for me which caused a huge amount of stress and anxiety. I feel as...

We treated ourselves to an overnight stay followed by a spa day. The hotel is certainly impressive to look at. The staff were very friendly and helpful and our rooms clean and well appointed. I'm not sure quite 5 star however, as the word 'luxury' did not spring to mind. A walk around the well kept grounds was very welcome...

Thank you for the constructive review and I do apologise if my team did not inform you that the service charge is discretionary. Overall it does seem as if you enjoyed your stay which is very important to us - please do return when the refurbishment has finished in April/May. All the best Greg

4 of us took advantage (or so we thought) of the sunday lunch set menu offer. The hotel setting is undoubtedly lovely but our appreciation of it was marred by our lunch experience. Whilst the food price seemed worth travelling an hour and a half for (£35 for 3 courses plus £5 for coffee and petit fours per person), the...

Stayed for 1 night for my husbands birthday. Staff were wonderful. Food in the restaurant was excellent. The whole experience was delightful. Log fires in the evening. Even an owl flown around the castle in the morning. Very Harry Potter. Really special

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
