What a lovely hotel and staff were so helpful welcoming and friendly. Nothing was to much trouble
What a lovely hotel and staff were so helpful welcoming and friendly. Nothing was to much trouble for them. It made it all the more special because we had an upgrade without asking. Will definitely be back.
We stayed for three nights the room we had was very nice. We enjoyed the meal we had in the restaurant and the Hotel is in a lovely location. A big plus was how very helpful the staff were. Gavin the manager and Alberto and the Gentleman who did the maintenance couldn t do enough for us regarding parking of the two Harley Davidsons we went on which for us is a real bonus. The Hotel is set in lovely grounds but our only criticism would be the patio seating area. It really does need making comfortable and considering the size of the Hotel bigger. The hard wooden seating and loose chipping you have to navigate especially if you are on heels or disabled are really not suitable. Some comfortable patio furniture on paving would be much more suitable. Apart from that spoiling an otherwise lovely stay we had a great time.
Great value for money
We were delighted with our stay at Bowden Hall. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Our room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable and we appreciated having air conditioning, especially in the hot evenings.
There was a large selection of food at breakfast and we appreciated our complimentary evening meal on our first evening. We would certainly use the hotel again and recommend it to friends.
Lovely rooms food a massive let down
Lovely helpful reception staff check in and out was professional plus very efficient. There was 4 of use had rooms 435 & 436 which was perfect but a bit hot at night no air conditioner. Lovely walk in the grounds and around the hotel. No lift so if u have mobility issues long way up carrying laggage. One big let down is the food and waiters There is a lot of staff waiting in the restaurant but they are not very efficient there are disorganised and zero attention to details some tables had bread some just didn't. As for the food if u like plain boring, luk warn food that's the place for you. The staurant has a lovely a atmosphere shame about the food. Get new chef and train waiters the hotel has such potential
BARGAIN BREAK STAY
Good location and decor staff helpful. Restaurant way down on other bargain breaks previously stayed at lots of complaints during meals no overall manger to supervise service. The food needs a good overhaul to get to standard needed
Disappointing for gluten free
Hotel in lovely location and lots to do nearby. Room was lovely and clean and fresh. Food however was disappointing. One of us is gluten free and I made the hotel aware of this on the booking so they did accommodate but I find, in comparison to many other places these days, the offer was POOR. Such limited choice on restaurant menu, poor pudding offer, no gluten free breakfast items (sausages/hash browns etc) no fresh cake/scone for afternoon tea, only prepackaged and I had to ask for scone to be heated up to be edible. It really wouldn't take much for this situation to be 100% improved, just a little consideration; it wasn't the cheap option to stay here and yet I don't feel it was worth the extra we paid.
