We had a lovely experience at Bovey Castle, which came recommended by several friends as a birthday treat for my mum on her 80th. She was blown away by the surprise cream tea I organised. We were given a great table in the library with a view over the grounds. I loved the way those having cream tea were scattered around. The hotel offers a wonderfully cosy, relaxed experience, with the freedom to potter around the ground floors bars and lounges and the gardens outside, to sit in front of the fire in the lounge, with no pressure to leave. The service was friendly and efficient and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. My only slight criticism would be the food itself - the sandwiches I didn't feel were five-star and the pastries could too have been improved on with more variety of type and flavour (mostly felt we were eating pure sugar!). The scones were gorgeous, however. This didn't take away from the experience but I feel is worth mentioning.

My wife and I had afternoon tea. There were various disappointing things on the day. Sugar bowl was dirty on outside, bread not soft. Crumbs were in creases of chair and on the floor. There was also another table set ready for guests which had a lot of crumbs under the table/chairs. (General dirty appearance) When walking onto the veranda afterwards there was dog poo directly in front of us! For a 5 star hotel general appearance was tired and dirty. Whilst we paid the 12% on top of the bill, in afterthought wish we had not.

We enjoyed an afternoon tea sat on the terrace over looking the beautiful grounds of Bovey Castle. The staff were very attentive to our needs and happy to oblige by bringing our booking forward by half an hour. The afternoon tea itself was very good, maybe a little heavy on the sweet, perhaps could have done with slightly more savoury. We couldn’t manage all the cakes, however the waiting staff were more than happy to box them up for us to take them away with us.

Upon entrance you immediately experience the tranquillity and beautiful scenery. With the beautiful weather we enjoyed sitting outside on the terrace from which we had amazing views of the grounds and surrounding park! The staff was very friendly and helpful but in a very modest way. Definitely a reason to drive some extra miles!
