Luxury stay in the countryside

MM, Hertfordshire, stayed: November 2019

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel.

It was a little hard to spot when we first arrived in the dark, but the surroundings were beautiful and we were pleasantly surprised by the size of our room, despite it being the 'classic' rather than one of the larger sizes.

The staff were all really nice and helpful, and handle a couple of unforeseen issues with care and consideration. We would like to give special thanks to Mariusz (head waiter) and Alberto (head barman) for their swift and satisfactory resolution of a delay in the arrival of our meal due to an overrun kitchen.

Pleasant Stay

Richard S, wiltshire, stayed: October 2019

The areas of the hotel that have recently been refurbished are lovely. Our room was a little tired but still nice. My wife's food was fantastic but mine (burger) was rather dry and tasteless. Both deserts were delicious. We also had nachos as a starter which were fantastic. It was such a pity my main course was a bitter disappointment.

Fantastic stay

Rachel, Devon, stayed: October 2019

Bowden Hall is a fantastic hotel with wonderful food and great customer service. We stayed for 5 nights and we were always welcome. The staff did all they could to help us and despite constantly asking for tea bags and sugar they were always willing to either provide us with what we needed or to send housekeeping up to help us. It s located in a village outside of Gloucester which meant that there were some lovely views while still close enough to get into town easily.

Not sure what this means.

Anon, stayed: October 2019

Stay Sun to Thu coach tour;Thu to Sat as private guests. Room 137; bedside light failing bulb, shower mechanism unsatisfactory, had to settle for bath instead; no drawers for storing clothes, had to live out of suitcase; hanging space barely adequate, otherwise good,more spacious than some other hotels we have used . Were we the only people who have stayed on after coach tour? Hiatus in daily paper order after the changeover point.

Excellent Stay

SBWirral, stayed: September 2019

Booked 1 night package deal with dinner bed & breakfast & half bottle of champagne on arrival. Excellent value. Hotel is beautiful set in lovely grounds with a lake which is hidden away because of the trees. Lovely old building which has been sympathetically renovated. Our room was very comfortable with tea/coffee making facilities. Champagne was waiting for us well chilled which was a nice touch. All the staff we met were very nice and helpful. Drinks are on the expensive side. We paid 28 for a bottle of Chenin Blanc but food was excellent and overall we thought good value. Couple of local pubs which were ok. Good location for exploring area.

Weekend break

NB, Hampshire, stayed: September 2019

Hotel had no lifts so you have to climb stairs to most rooms. Room on first floor was OK. Bed was spacious and comfortable. When we stayed for a weekend break there was a wedding on which seemed to stretch resources and service at hotel. First night in restaurant we had to wait two hours for main course to arrive. When it did arrive chicken dish was over cooked and subsequently tough.. We were not advised when arriving in restaurant that there was a serious delay in kitchen. Had we known we would have had choice as to eating elsewhere. Issue was raised with hotel staff who apologized. Speaking to other guests further problems existed in restaurant next day and we decided not to use hotel restaurant for evening meals during our stay. Staff at hotel were however pleasant and generally accommodating. Sunday breakfast was a bit of a free for all due to wedding guests with plates and food running out at alarming rate. If staying at hotel at weekends expect possible issues if large wedding party in residence.
