"Great place but starting to feel too corporate"
Stayed here before and loved every minute. It felt really special. This time it felt very impersonal and as such a little disappointing ....no individualized effort made. Would be nice if hotel staff was a little more friendly. Restaurant staff were lovely though. Would come back again for sure but hope staff can take to heart the importance of welcoming […] and smiles etc. home was closed for season which was also a shame! Still recommend!

"Possible best hotel in UK"
As an IT consultant I stay in many hotels in the UK and more often than not I'm disappointed with the hotel I'm staying at- however this hotel was almost flawless, I had a great room, the food was excellent and the staff were curteous, polite and extremely helpful. Would recommend 100%. If I were to change one thing, I would add Steak to the in-room […] menu but it's still one of the, if not the, best hotel I've ever stayed in the UK Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful grounds, comfy room and great pool."
Lovely room, v comfy and beautiful bathroom. I was staying on business so this was a treat. I managed to squeeze in a swim, jacuzzi, sauna and steam, the aromatherapy shower was great. Unfortunately I had to be up for a meeting v early and didn't properly get to enjoy the stay. I'll be back.....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice setting and staff, parking not the best and food in hotel expensive. Swimming pool/spa looked good but had no chance to use it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Truly beyond outstanding!"
As a regular business traveller I spend many nights in many hotels each and every week. I can honestly say that this hotel is one of the very best I've experienced... Ever! Quality of the hotel itself is exceptional, rooms are beautiful, well appointed, comfortable and luxurious. The bathrooms were equally outstanding, spacious and with a huge walk […] in s shower. The restaurant was quiet on my visit and the A La Carte menu was comprehensive and had a mouth-watering selection of interesting dishes. The food was absolutely top-notch, quality, flavour and inventiveness were all there! On top of all of this though was the absolutely outstanding service given by absolutely every member of the hotel team I came into contact with. Ever so helpful, friendly and above all efficient in their duties. I can highly recommend this hotel to anyone! I did not use the Spa facilities this time, but if they are anywhere near as good the rest of the hotel that can only add to a very special evening or weekend. I will certainly return for another visit, this time with my family. Don't hesitate, book this hotel with confidence, you won't be disappointed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Shower to die for, clean crisp sheets and comfortable pillow. Breakfast was wonderful. Shame Bowood house was closed for winter, but some lovely pubs and villages surround this hotel. as well as the golf course.!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
very well run hotel with good amenities. the dinner menu could be a little more varied. not everybody eats meat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I am being picky, but given the cost, I think it's the right thing to do. Starting with 100 points.. Deduct 1pt for chipped cup when serving breakfast, 1pt for only serving one rasher of bacon, 1pt for the bacon being tough, 1pt for the plate being cold. The room was contemporary (in fact the whole hotel had a very contempoary feel, lots of neutral […] colurs) and well furnished, flat screen tv, well appointed large bathroom, bathroom robes. high thread count bedsheets. The gym was well appointed, with new and well manitained cardio machines and free weights. This was in anew wing of the hotel. Floor to ceiling glass. You could see the golf course as you ran on the treadmill. Very theraputic. Did not get chance to try spa (will book a massage in advance next time). The barman was friendly and pleasure to chat with after a hard nights partying. Just driving through the arched gateway gave you a sense of luxury and the entrance to the hotel was equally impressive. If you like luxury and you can afford it, well worth staying Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time. The hotel is set in lovely grounds. I asked for champagne in the room which was a reasonable price and good too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"OK, but over-rated"
Carpets stains on bedroom carpet, loose fittings in bedroom, cobwebs on bedroom windows! Hotel staff - very offish, Hotel Facilities - pretty good overall Hotel restaurants - expensive and limited choice, but not bad tastingGenuine Expedia guest review
WOW! Room was amazing and all the the little extras made it extra special. Would have liked to have been asked if we wanted to see the facilities or even here about them. Dinner in the brasseries was great, felt it lacked a bit of atmosphere and wasn't in tune with the rest of the hotel. Will recommend and intend to go again. Overall great overnight […] stay.

"Overnight stay - will definitely go back"
Everything about our stay was outstanding from the initial drive up to the hotel, check in staff, room, spa, evening meal and breakfast - all spot on! I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in an unspoilt part of the country.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We chose Bowood for a wedding anniversary break and stayed for two nights - a Thursday and Friday. The hotel and spa and the grounds surrounding are all beautifully maintained. The spa facilities are outstanding and luxurious and despite the hotel being full on Friday night, we were able to have time in the pool to ourselves on the saturday morning […] before breakfast. The only one slight disappointment was that we could hear the people in the next door room talking late at night but other than that we had a wonderful time and would definitely stay there again. Very handy for visiting Bath and Bristol. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Fint Golf hotel. Beliggende 12 Pund (taxi) fra sentrum, og nære industrionrådene også. Fit, men ikke spennende.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel bello ma con personale poco professionale"
Servizio assolutamente non all'altezza della bellezza e della location della strutturaGenuine Expedia guest review
10/25/14 Zoe G Hungerford, United Kingdom
We loved the hotel, very well designed and with a very friendly staff, who managed to know who each member of the group was. The facilities were second to none and the beds were very comfortable. Although a bit wet and long, it was a very well maintained golf course with excellent greens and plenty of variety. Again the staff could not have been more helpful. A good place t celebrate a big birthday with friends.
10/23/14 Kevin H Abergavenny
A very nice hotel and a great romantic break. Spa lovely, with jacuzzi, steam and sauna rooms. Very clean. Rooms were gorgeous. Bathroom to die for. I opted for the balcony, which overlooks the golf course, which was nice. Restaurant menu was nice albeit not loads of choice. Food was very nice. Hotel relaxing areas are quiet and confortable. Grounds very nice.
"Spa break with friends"
10/22/14 12rutht Bristol
Modern but beautifully appointed country hotel with cosy, relaxed feel . Spent one night and two days here as a group of four friends getting away from the city for a spa break. Great value October offer which included one night's B&B, three course dinner, two treatments and use of spa, champagne afternoon tea AND lunch on the Sunday. Great spa and treatment facilities, though pool area a bit on the small side. Poolside aromatherapy shower was different, and a big hit. Hotel facilities and room (we had balcony room overlooking golf course) were excellent. Attentive service from friendly staff was the icing on the cake.
10/21/14 Suttons3 Chippenham, United Kingdom
This get away was a gift and what I really needed it after a very stressful year. The treatments followed by good food and drink combined with good company made for the perfect remedy. Good service packaged the break with a bow.
"A Lovely Stay"
10/21/14 Trudy R Monmouth
We stayed for 2 nights at Bowood House Hotel last week and had a relaxing and enjoyable time there. The rooms are comfortable and spacious and the spa is lovely. We had a wonderful walk over to Bowood House, which is well worth a visit, followed by a really good meal in the bar. The staff are friendly and helpful and we hope to return next year with our grandchildren who will love the adventure playground!!
"Our short break, following illness."
10/21/14 Ronald W Marlborough
It was a great help and did a good job. We would have liked to have made more use of the facilities, but the weather was against us, not much can be done about that, but it was a very good 'pick me up.' Thank you.
"Can't wait to stay at Bowood again"
10/21/14 Katastrofee Peterborough, England, United Kingdom
We visited Bowood for our 12 year anniversary. We asked for a nice room when we booked as it was a special occasion. When we arrived, not only was the room sumptuous but the manager left us a bottle of fizz and a note in the room to congratulate us. This was in addition to the fresh cookies, beauty products, mineral water and comfy slippers and gown! The receptionist was a really nice girl, very helpful, getting things sent up to the room that we'd forgotten and nothing was too much trouble. All the maids had a smile for us and were helpful when I lost the lift! We ate at the restaurant and the staff were very polite and friendly. The food was tasty and portions very generous! I had the beetroot and blue cheese starter, which was zingy and interesting, then the duck, which was cooked beautifully, followed by the cheese board, which you can choose the cheeses for. My kind of meal! The spa facilities are fine and the beauty treatment itself (Beautiful Goddess) had a bit of everything. It really was divine. The girl who did my treatment was very friendly and eloquent and explained what the different products did and gave me good skincare advice. Her back massage was the best I've ever had! I felt proper chilled. The room and grounds were lovely. When we went to Bowood Gardens there was even more autumnal beauty. There are little hidden caves, temples and waterfalls and geese flying over the lake. Very pretty. When we went into the house, a nice staff member approached us and asked if we were there for the art, then gave us a guide for all the paintings so we could learn about them. He didn't judge us for being young and tattooed like some other people do in high culture places! All in all, Bowood's great grounds and attention to detail in all the hotel facilities, combined with the absolute quality of the staff in all areas, made my stay completely perfect.

A lovely 1 night spa package which was exceptional value for money. Afternoon tea with champagne included. very impressed with the staff here and we were given an upgrade as the hotel was not busy. Lovely room very quiet and totally relaxing , lovey setting and will defiantly be back.
"A Spa Break for three ladies to celebrate a significant birthday"
10/16/14 Sonya9876 Cheltenham
Our every need was met from a scrumptious afternoon tea, exquisite dinner, to a perfect breakfast in beautifully decorated drawing room/library, and dining room. The bedroom and en suite was so fresh and clean decorated in tasteful cotswold muted colours, the beds were so comfortable with high quality pillows and bedding. There were extra special touches of ice in ice bucket, freshly cooked cookies in a cookie tin, hot chocolate, fresh coffee and a selection of teas and even one of us had strawberries with a thoughtful happy birthday note. The Spa and gym have the most amazing views of the grounds. The treatments were perfect for each of us. It was so peaceful and relaxing. We walked the afternoon tea off by heading over to Bowood House and gardens. The walk took about 20mins to reach the entrance. The gardens, lake and walks are amazing and definitely worth a visit. There is a fantastic playground for families which I have taken my children to before for picnics, parties and fun.A must not miss for families!
"Exceeded expectations - super value for money"
10/16/14 Wendy J Hampshire, Uk
We have just returned from a one night October Spa Package trip to Bowood - and it exceeded on every level. We were lucky enough to have my sister down the road from Bowood (which is why we chose it) to look after our two daughters (6 and 2) so this was a much anticipated romantic night away - where you get your expectations up and hope you won't be disappointed! THe room was immaculate and large, bed comfy, robe and slippers, spa, pool, indoor jacuzzi in the afternoon sun looking out over the golf course, amazing treatment for 60 minutes of bliss, lovely light lunch in the spa, delicious dinner, great wine choice, super breakfast with great choices and extra touches (like fresh juice to take away), wonderful stroll to Bowood House (well worth it), a 'chauffeur golf buggy' was called to return us back to the hotel in time for our champagne afternoon tea before sadly departing. This hotel is pretending to be a Michelin star - but it is much more relaxing than that so you can feel really at ease with all the amenities and luxuries of a five start stay. Small enough to feel personal, large enough not to feel crowded. Wonderful thank you Bowood.
