Lovely hotel, lovely staff

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Anonymous Business - 17/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I was travelling for work and this was perfectly located for the area I was due to have my meeting in - the staff were very friendly and attentive, the food was delicious, and the room was very comfortable. I had read prior reviews about the rooms being hot due to no air-con, however there was a fan in the room, and so this wasn't a big issue. There is an app which you can choose to use to order food and drink (from the bar area), which I found easier to do due to the card machine having no signal outside. Overall, it was clean, comfortable, quiet, and with excellent service.

First impressions very good, thought we would have a good relaxed stay but disappointed by departure time.

Anthony G. Couples - 17/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The drive through the countryside and the drive up to the hotel gives a brilliant impression of country house relaxation. Due to covid procedures (very good) we had to wait in the entrance for a while. Looking around we realised it was quite dirty and covered in insects and cobwebs as was a lot of the outside of the building. A lot of stairs up to the room later, could be difficult for anybody with mobility issues, we were initially pleasantly happy. It was well furnished and comfortable with a good bathroom but overnight it was very warm and affected sleep. The sash window only opened a short way and the fan only served to blow warm air around. Dinner was good, we had the set menu with good service although the wine we chose only had a part bottle left and no dessert wine available. But the cooked breakfast was, frankly, awful. We were just about first in but the food could have been cooked at midnight, the eggs were almost cold, the sausages shrivelled and the bacon dry. We didn't regret leaving and won't return.

Really enjoyed our stay and will be back when traveling in that area. Room was absolutely fabulous with great views. Stairs were a little hard going as no lift to fourth floor but well worth it. Breakfast was yummy evening meal good. We could have had someone to carry luggage up for us but managed. Staff were pleasant and helpful. A great couple is days could have stayed longer.

Helpful and polite staff, meals well presented, bed rooms well maintained. The grounds and hotel building are very interesting form an historical point of view. Covid 19 Health and Safety rules are clear and concise, plenty of hand sanitiser available.

We had an extremely nice stay, the staff were very obliging and overall we would love to return. Our only criticism would be the pillows are very hard.

Lovely setting

Jules Couples - 14/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Two night stay, warmly greeted at reception, lady was very friendly and helpful. Couldn't book dinner first night but was squeezed in on 2nd. Food and service was great and well executed during current conditions. Room was clean and spacious, the downside was that it had no view at all, which was rather disappointing. Celebrating husband's 50th and was given vouchers for a drink in the bar and there was a card for him in our room, which was a lovely touch.

Lovely grounds to walk through. Clean and comfortable hotel.

Wonderful. Couldn’t fault anything. Room, staff, food, outlook, all 100%. Special mention to the young lady on reception when we arrived, and the young man working for the bar (I have sent an email via your contact us page regarding these 2).

Beautiful location, friendly and helpful staff. Only negative is the rooms are so hot, especially in this warmer weather and unfortunately the fan they provide, is not enough

Premier Inn plus rooms, comfortable beds, hard pillows, bath dangerous to get in and out of. Breakfast good, had one evening meal, it was poor quality for the price charged. Location good for visiting places. Staff very good.

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!

Enjoyed a really relaxing stay at Mecure Gloucester Bowden Hall . Staff were very helpful and hotel was well laid out to deal with the current situation. The room was well equipped for the use of electronic equipment such as laptops ,tablets etc. With generous socket provision. Very comfortable and well lit room.
