We stayed here for two nights for our minimoon. We wanted to completely relax and unwind and so chose a large country hotel which had everything we needed on site. We booked a package which included dinner on the first night, otherwise I would agree with the posts that say that the restaurant is rather expensive. The staff were lovely and left a card and bottle of bubbly in our room when we arrived.
We enjoyed the beautiful grounds and the lovely sitting rooms with open fires in the evening. I would not agree with the post that described the decor as tired.
The swimming pool/spa area is one of the best I have been to. There is a lovely area with a view over Dartmoor.
Our only criticism is that when we came to pay, a hefty service charge had been added to the bill for everything - room, dinner, spa etc. Good service should be included in a luxury hotel as it is part of what you are paying for. The staff removed this straight away when asked, but if this had been our first weekend away together it could have been quite embarrassing!
- 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
