We attended a Wedding here and it was very well run, 112 guests well served in the dining room.
The excellent comfort, attention and respect; the splendid facilities, the setting and environment and the friendly, helpful Staff.
We enjoyed absolutely everything about our stay at Bovey Castle - the luxury without the stuffiness, the friendly, helpful staff, all the facilities and........ the cream tea! We were surprised, however, not to see a bottle of prosecco on the wine list!
The bastle itself, the large surroundings, the Space of the Roms and the leisure Roms.
The Staff was Professional but very "Cold". They seemed to be unhappy.
We loved the location,the atmosphere,the ambiance,the service,the geographical position,a truly wonderful experience.
Fine dining was not what we expected,and room facility surcharges were a big surprise on the final bill.
I was not impressed that, on the first day of our stay at a hotel which boasts of great dining (a Tuesday), the 'Edwardian' dining room was closed and the alternative was only open to formal, suit-wearing customers. None of this was mentioned on the hotel website, nor this one. The food in the 'bistro' was poor although the service was great.
It was spacious and clean
Small point however, television small and poor signal
Hotel is being refurbished. Areas that should have been blocked off, weren'T. No directions from room to reception..so couldnt help but trick across the areas being refurbished when trying to find your way around!
Beautiful surroundings. Peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. A real treat.
can't fault it. a fantastic hotel in a fantastic location. the attention to detail for is great, champagn on arrival, umbrella and welly boots for country walks, loads of facilities. the complimentary wine tasting is a great way to start your evening.
