    Incredible hotel. Staff were really attentive but not overbearing. Bedroom was immaculate and spacious. Bar and restaurant were really pleasant and grounds are spectacular. Leisure complex also well maintained and modern. We also did some activities (extra cost) put on by the hotel; off road driving, clay pigeon shooting, fly fishing and archery. A really memorable experience. Loved it.

    I am writing to express my sincere appreciation for the exceptional experience we had at your establishment during a recent visit to celebrate a friend's birthday. The staff was incredibly welcoming and demonstrated a remarkable attention to detail, which greatly enhanced our overall experience. The manor and its surrounding grounds are simply breathtaking, providing a truly enchanting ambiance. The rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable, ensuring a restful and enjoyable stay. I wholeheartedly recommend your establishment to anyone seeking an unforgettable experience. There is absolutely nothing to fault, and I encourage you to continue providing the same level of exceptional service. Thank you once again for making our celebration truly memorable.

    Birthday treat an 85 minute massage by the fabulous therapist Kelly. A present from my wife as I was a salon owner for ten years and she knew I loved treatments. Highly recommend the Spa, the products by Temple Spa and Kelly. Great birthday gift

    We had a superb afternoon tea at Bovey Castle. The food was perfect, with beautiful patisserie and a lovely range of drinks. We all enjoyed the menu and the staff were attentive and professional. The grounds were super for a stroll afterwards and we enjoyed a game of croquet before relaxing with drinks in one of the stylish and comfortable sitting rooms. A wonderful day out, we can’t wait to come back!

    We had a beautiful meal. There were four in our party and two were pescatarian. There was an Excellent choice of food on the menu, and the drinks were reasonably priced other than a coffee being a little more than most places. There were a number of new staff members on shift which caused a delay in table service and some mix ups in our orders. These service issues were resolved by a lovely member of staff, they discounted our bill by 25%, took off the service charge and gave us three free deserts. It was a wonderful evening and the rectification of the lack of service meant that we would 100% return to have a second experience with them. The grounds are beautiful and the drive way and valet service were brilliant. Very happy with our evening visit. Thank you.
