We stayed over the Royal wedding weekend, and paid extra to upgrade to the sea view/balcony room.
Overall the stay worked out quite expensive for 4 nights, but we enjoyed our time here. Some Pros/Cons:
Amazing views out to the sea - balcony was nice to sit out on
Loved having use of the squash courts
The reception lounges were perfect to relax in and read the papers
It has a lovely aura of faded glamour
Few minutes walk down to the beach
Breakfast was so so busy, was difficult to get served for tea/coffee and they kept running out of things like juice glasses at the buffet.
You really need to book way in advance to get any treatment in the spa
The gym was only average
Some areas of the hotel were in need of modernisation
Wedding receptions can get pretty noisy
Rooms were a little on the small side
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Much of the Hotel has been lovingly restored from the mid 1800's, creating it's unique and tranquil atmosphere. High ceilings, chandeliers and comfortable, quiet lounges are a testament to that era, and where first class modern amenities are required, they have been skilfully incorporated into the existing Woolacombe accommodation. We place high value on our staff. Trained to be attentive yet unobtrusive and to provide the kind of personal service that is so often hard to find. ... more less
