Staff very helpful and friendly, filter coffee delicious and bed very comfy. Fine dining restaurant serves delicious food. Amazing walks from the grounds
Rooms could have a bit more character style-wise; they are a bit corporate looking. Also food in the Brasserie not that tasty.
The hotel in general, the grounds and the location
It was far too hot in the hotel, the menu was just OK (Only 1 restaurant open). Hotel adds discretionary charges for everything - You need to have your Witts about you - This is a very poor approach from the hotel management team - Be visible, be transparent, be honest.
The property was fantastic, full of character. Staff were extremely polite and professional. Food was fantastic, breakfast was as expected though.
One of the lounges was a little tatty, swimming pool area could do with a little tlc (not what I expect for a 5 star hotel) Vodka price was excessive and high service charge added.
With a stay at Bovey Castle in Newton Abbot, you'll be on a river, within a 15-minute drive of Dartmoor and Grimspound. Featured amenities include a business center, express check-out, and complimentary newspapers in the lobby. Free valet parking is available onsite.
