Paul C. Couples - 23/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

A great hotel and location. CV19 well thought out on corridors bar and meal times etc The room was comfortable 4th floor, with good views and a very comfy bed. Breakfast was good and had to be pre ordered the day before. One criticism the room door had massive gaps (bottom and sides) letting in loads of corridor light into the room at night, making the room semi lit and needs addressing

Lovely location and grounds

Alison W. Couples - 22/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We had a lovely one night stay and the staff were very professional and friendly. The only downside was that we were woken up on Sunday morning at 7am by a group of guests having breakfast in the 'pod' on the lawn at the front of the hotel which our room overlooked. It was very annoying as we were hoping for a bit more sleep!

Generally good with a few comments

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Anonymous Couples - 22/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We enjoyed our stay, and the staff was excellent and helpful. The Social Distancing was also well arranged, although the indication of routes was not always entirely clear. One suggestion which would have enhanced our stay would have been a breakfast menu, maybe just one example kept at reception? We were asked which breakfast we would like to chose, but were only given the types (i.e full English. continental, vegan and eggs Benedict) without any idea of what they contained or options within the choices. Only on day 3 did I in this way discover which (adapted) choice suited me best, but would have liked to know in advance what was what. The other comment is that the dining room, although well adapted qua space, did seem rather cold in design and colour, where at least a few brighter pictures (more good local photographs with more colour) might perhaps be suitable?

staff excellent, hotel neglected

Disappointed Couples - 22/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

the staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly the guy on check in. unfortunately the minute you walk in to reception the hotel looks depressing and neglected. there is no proper reception, just a desk in the middle of an empty room and the lounge area was as bad. the decor is out dated, tired and it's hard to imagine it ever looked good, which is a shame when the building was no doubt gorgeous once. the food was micro waved and the chicken slimey. the room was fine.

Dear caroline m., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Mercure Gloucester Bowden Hall Hotel. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. unfortunately we are having to adopt to the Government Guidelines and operate in a COVID secure environment therefore a lot of the sofas / Cushions and dressings have had to be removed from the lounge to comply with these new rules. I have looked at your evening meal and can assure you that the food you purchased was not micro waved. The fish and Chips is freshly battered onsite and the carbonara cooked from fresh in the kitchen We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will return once we are allowed to return the lounge and restaurant back to normal and give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Gavin

Mr A. M. W. Couples - 21/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is a lovely building however the decor leaves a bit to be desired as it has been done it would seam on a budget, the bed and pillows were very uncomfortable and it was difficult to sleep there. The staff were very friendly , breakfast was reasonable evening restaurant food was surprisingly good but a little over priced.

First weekend away after lockdown and shielding. The CV19 precautions made us feel safe. The staff were without fail, helpful and welcoming and the dining facilities worked well although the menu was limited. The chef’s special menu, only available on one night, was extremely good value. Thanks for a great stay, we’ll visit again soon

Very friendly and helpful staff. Well thought out covid routines. Hotel and room was very clean.

Nice location - Covid protection measures were excellent

Rupert Solo - 20/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Nice building in lovely surrounding but still close to Gloucester. The work they have done on Covid protection measures was really good. I just wish the check-in process was much much quicker - especially as I'd given them all of the information during the booking process.

Relaxing Stay

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Caroline Couples - 20/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We really enjoyed our stay with you. The only suggestion i would make would be to invest in voiles in the garden view rooms. We were in room 224 and were very conscious of people walking by when our curtains were open. The addition of voiles would add an extra layer of privacy. Overall, a great stay and we look forward to staying with you again soon. Thank you x

Great location and service

Ray Couples - 20/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The staff made this hotel, our bedroom had two singles put together making it large. The room was nothing special even though I paid extra. COVID-19 was handled very well with the exception that some guests ignored it.

ENJOYABLE STAY

EASY TO FIND FROM THE A36 - GARDENS NEED IMPROVEMENT ! STAFF Especially Francesca- very helpful on Reception and Kate a very efficient waitress Good efficient Bus Service to & from Gloucester nearby a few minutes walk Pity that but understandable with the one way system we had to go outside The limit of £22 for the evening meal was an unwelcome surprise 13th/14th October 2020
