Beautiful setting but room did not meet expectations

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Dan Business - 09/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is in a beautiful setting and from the outside the hotel is stunning. We booked the SUPERIOR SUITE which on first appearance we very nice. Unfortunately this room did not meet the expectations of quality that the rest of the hotel promised. The floor made a lot of noise when walking over it ( I would feel sorry for anyone staying in the room below). The radiators were noisy all night as if they were filling, at 4 in the morning with little sleep I managed stop the noise by turning off all the radiators. Whilst this stop the noise it also made the bedroom very cold. Deeply disappointing considering this was mean to be the highest quality room on offer. Dan

It’s a lovely little country hotel but with the welcome and service of a Mercure, which adds up to an excellent experience!

Good stay

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Mary Business - 28/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Nice hotel and staff but the food options were not great - not much healthy options available and there is no room service, so I had to walk down to the restaurant to collect my food and carry the tray 4 level, as was staying on the 4th floor, without access to lift, which felt a bit of an ask to then be also charged service charge! It left me thinking that was a bit arrogant.

Friendly and Accommodating

Bowden Hall is a beautiful property with friendly and accommodating staff. Everyone who we came into contact with, waitstaff, chefs, maintenance, and reception were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. I would not hesitate to return to this beautiful place and would recommend it as well. Thank you

G B. Couples - 27/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

difficult times at present. A return to the normal bar and dining service will make a major difference. everyone friendly and helpful. delightful location. I have a slight knee problem so a fourth-floor room was not ideal for me.

Very good

Jo M. Business - 25/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

A safe, secure environment where the staff were friendly, with a real 'can do' attitude. They had managed to create a very positive atmosphere - despite all of the requirements. And what's not to like about breakfast alfresco? Highly recommend this place - beautiful setting and really lovely staff. Superb room too!

Really enjoyed our short stay. Felt very comfortable and relaxed, nothing seemed too much trouble. Lovely food and the vip pod for brunch was beautiful.

Lovely area, so glad to arrive in daylight as the surrounding area is superb.

Dan W. Business - 15/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The lady on reception was fantastic, very enthusiastic and helpful. I ordered burger and chips, and I must say I wasn't expecting a great deal. But so pleasently surprised by one of the very best burgers I have ever had. The chips as well were really good. The condiments were quality not the usual cheap shite you come to expect. It was really nice to stay at the hotel in even covid conditions. I will definitely return to explore the area when lockdown is completely ended. My visit was because of a site visit and it is 2 to 3 hrs from home. The same lady was actually still at work when I checked out in the morning, still smiling and is an asset to the hotel. My only niggle was being charged a room service fee for food that you have to collect from reception and it's not made clear when ordering. I would rather had known in advance and it wouldn't have been a problem. It was worth it. Just rather i was told it's X, rather than its Y but we seek an extra £5 on the bill. Thank you Mercure.

Business Trip in Lockdown

Malcolm C Business - 04/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

This was my second visit to the Bowden Hall, during this current lockdown period, the service was again excellent. The Reception Team are always welcoming and enthusiastic, after a long day and late in the evening, it is appreciated! They take a real pride in recognising the arriving guests, particulary regular Accor Group guests. I will be back!
