Guest reviews for Bovey Castle

5 out of 5

Something for everyone

Bovey Castle has to be the best hotel I've come across! The location is spectacular but the food, facilities, activities and pampering even better. This place is great for families (so much for the kids!), couples who want some time out, corporates or a perfect wedding venue. A must go to - I like most I'm sure, will definately be back!
