The Woolacombe Bay Hotel

A spa-enhanced sanctuary by the sea, Woolacombe Bay is a four-star all-weather coastal retreat. You set the pace for your stay – relaxing in the spa, catching the latest movies in the private cinema and working up a sweat in SALT Gymnasia. Outdoors, the Bay Lido has a heated pool, firepit, and windbreaking walls. The hotel offers 2AA Rosette dining.

What makes a stay at The Woolacombe Bay Hotel unique?

Located just yards from the award-winning Woolacombe Beach, nearly all of the 58 bedrooms and all luxury suites offer stunning seascapes – as do the hotel's restaurants – Doyle's and The Bay Brasserie. Come rain or shine, you can spend just 24 hours at the hotel, and enjoy some of the finest experiences. Catch one of the latest Hollywood blockbusters at Neo, hit SALT for a bass-thumping fitness class, head to the spa for a seasonal massage and watch the sunset over the seascapes as you dine. On sunny days, the Bay Lido is the place to hangout - take a dip in the heated pool, sip cocktails, and snuggle up by the firepit. Dog-friendly bedrooms are available.
