Break Away so disappointing!

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

laurencem516 TripAdvisor review

So disappointing! 4 days away. Been before 6 years ago and it was better. Poor room top floor. Too many stairs and no lift either! Evening meal appalling! Complained nothing happened. Had 2 weddings so on the Saturday morning dining room was overflowing and staff were all over the place. We never got to finish out breakfast. The cleaning staff were excellent! Generally hospitality is very poor sadly lacking in customer service skills no one listens.

Lovely relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings

We went to Bowden Hall through countryhotelbreaks. Everything as promised in the break was there on arrival at the hotel. The hotel was extremely well maintained. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel. The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was lovely and looked over the extensive grounds. We ate breakfast and dinner in the hotel and really enjoyed both. The food was well cooked, fresh and very appetising. The hotel was well appointed with several places to visit within easy reach. Thanks to everyone for making our stay so enjoyable.

Staff Excellent

Lovely historic house but needs some TLC

Impressive building but sad to see it looks neglected, especially on the outside. Needs a paint and tidy up. Scruffy outside seating area, pots and planters just weeds and wooden boards just left against the wall. Even the pods look a bit tatty. Apart from this the staff were very friendly and food was good.

Dear Susan C., Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your valuable feedback. We are pleased to hear that you appreciated the historic charm of our property and enjoyed the friendliness of our staff and the quality of our food. We apologize for the areas where we fell short of your expectations. We take your comments about the exterior appearance and outdoor seating area very seriously. Please rest assured that we are awaiting the summer bedding plants to the outside pots and Hanging baskets and plans to address these issues, including refreshing the paint, tidying up the grounds, and ensuring our outdoor areas and pods are well-maintained. Your feedback highlights areas for improvement, and we are committed to enhancing the overall experience for our guests. Thank you again for your constructive comments. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the future and providing a more polished experience. Kind regards Gavin & Team Mercure Gloucester Bowden Hall Hotel

All Credit to Reception Manager , who went above and beyond call of duty to get me a dedicated Shower room, rather one above a bath, Restaurant manager needs training, watched him flap around the Dining room without purpose. We entered 7.50pm and received our main dish after 9.15pm and watched three other couples receive theirs who arrived after us, When my Gammon came the egg was dried out, and the meat was like cardboard obviously been in Hot plate a long time completely dried out and unedible. I appreciate i was not charged for it and did not eat it, but wrangled as the afore mentioned persons also ordered Gammon, no explanation came why I was left to ,last dish from the pass.??????

Dear Richard Clive C., Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience at Bowden Hall. We truly value your feedback and are pleased to hear that our Reception Manager was able to provide you with a dedicated shower room, ensuring your comfort during your stay. However, I am very sorry to learn about your disappointing experience in our restaurant. The long wait time and the quality of your meal were unacceptable, and it is concerning to hear about the lack of coordination you observed. Please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience and dissatisfaction you encountered. Your feedback regarding the Restaurant Manager's performance is noted, and we will be addressing this internally to ensure our team operates more efficiently and provides the level of service our guests expect. The quality and timing of meal service are critical, and I regret that we fell short during your visit. Although we did not charge you for the meal, the experience you described is not in line with our standards, and we will take steps to prevent such occurrences in the future. We strive to offer all our guests an exceptional dining experience, and I am sorry we did not meet this expectation during your stay. Kind regards Gavin & Team Mercure Gloucester Bowden Hall Hotel
