"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!

"Extremely comfortable stay in glorious location"
Bowood Hall is by far the nicest place I've stayed while travelling. The location is beautiful and the rooms comfortable and spacious. Equally tempting breakfast and good food in the evening. My only gripe was a lack of mobile phone reception - which is understandable due to location and probably desirable for those seeking a retreat from it all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in beautiful surroundings."
We stayed in this hotel for 1 night for our anniversary, room was lovely, really relaxing & felt very luxurious. We had treatments in spa which were great. The food was good although the bar menu could of had a few more options. Will defiantly book again. Would of loved to be able to walk around the grounds of the house but we're closed until March […] . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A lovely place to stay..shame about the pillows"
Bowood Hall is a lovely place to stay. My fiancee and I had a relaxing stay. Staff were friendly and facilities are very good. Our only bug-bear was that the pilliows were uncomfortable which made a restless night for us both. But breakfast made up for it! Will definitely stay there again, but will probably bring our own pillows ;-)Genuine Expedia guest review

"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

"If we only had more time"
We arrived at the resort late and feeling under the weather. We missed the dinner service that looked promising and we were too tired to use the spa. We were very pleased with the hotel, though there were several issues with the service. Only one set of towels was supplied and it took several repeated queries before a second set was provided. There […] was no concierge service which should be offered given this resort's overall quality. Read moreGenuine 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
Comfortable beds, peaceful environment, excellent gym. Some Reception staff not very welcoming, whereas gym staff very friendly.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

"Beautiful romantic getaway"

"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

"Top class Spa Day"
04/25/15 Kor S Salisbury, United Kingdom
Went to the spa for a treat with a friend. We had a wonderful day relaxing in a lovely laid back environment, the spa staff are wonderful without being too over the top. Food was a real bonus, fruit platter and fizz then a really good choice of menu for lunch, we had Fish and Chips (not very 'spa') but possibly the best chips EVER, eaten in the sunny courtyard. An all round good value for money spa.
"Business Lunch "
Excellent location, fabulous views and gardens. Clean restrooms - service a little slow, but food very good and always well presented. Pleasant, accommodating and friendly staff. Always worth a visit. Food good value for money, especially in comparison to nearby places who nowhere near compare.
"Bowood in the sunshine"
04/22/15 Rachel S Cirencester, United Kingdom
We stayed on a package arrangement, including room, dinner in the main restaurant, spa access and 1 treatment each, access to the 3 hole practice green and driving range, and full breakfast. All were amazing with the exception of the main restaurant which was disappointing for the type of hotel it is. The Brassiere however, which is at the clubhouse, is excellent. All the staff are so helpful and welcoming and the setting would be hard to beat! We were particularly lucky as the weather was stunning which added to the enjoyment of the golf and visiting Bowood House and grounds.
"Great relaxing break with sister - apart from neighbours"
04/22/15 Jackie B Portland
Great Hotel, good Spa. The rooms are great, very clean and sophisticated. The Spa lacked that WOW factor. They only appeared to have a swimming pool. Jacuzzi, Steam, Sauna and senses shower. I expected more. However, the treatments we experienced were amazing. Special thanks goes to Chloe for her professional, friendly and excellent service. I would come back to have another massage from you any day! The food in the main restaurant was ok, not top notch as you would expect. The grounds were well kept, a golfers dream! Staff all very friendly, apart from the restaurant manager who always appeared to look like he was in a mood. Overall a pleasant stay, apart from the noises coming from the room next door, which kept us awake all night long. Not sure how a hotel should deal with this kind of thing, not that I'm a prude, but respect thy neighbour.
"Mother's Day treat"
04/22/15 TheCatLady21 Larnaka, Cyprus
We stayed overnight recently for a Spa break and it was our third visit but this time without children. The first time we stayed in a family suite which was superb with massive, beautifully equipped bathroom. Our recent stay was in a much smaller room/bathroom but still comfortable and with good facilities, including cafetierre and home made cookies which was a nice touch. We enjoyed our Spa treatment but due to the fact it was a very busy Sunday they were running late and our 30 min treatments turned out to be only 20 min. All loungers were full and some naughty guests left their towels on the beds for hours so that no-one else could use them - I feel the staff should monitor this situation and make guests remove their towels when they are leaving the Pool area for lunch etc. The visit before with young children to the Brasserie restaurant was a disaster, service terrible and resulted in small, tired kiddies waiting 2 hours to be fed. Not to be recommended! However, when we tried the Shelbourne restaurant we found the food and presentation too notch, only complaint was waiting 20 minutes for a bottle of wine to be served. Overall a beautiful Hotel with lovely grounds and very pleasant staff, and we will be visiting again
"Bowood Golf and Country Club"
04/21/15 Giles H Worcester
Great hotel and golf course, will be returning. Staff very friendly and helpful. Ideal location peaceful and quiet with a wonderful outlook from the Spa. Bedrooms are very comfortable, clean and welcoming.
04/19/15 InMars_13 London, United Kingdom
Spent two nights at this lovely hotel and spa just after the Easter bank holiday with my husband for a long awaited relaxing break. Bowood met and exceeded our requirements! The hotel and grounds are peacefully situated in a beautiful location which makes you feel you really have got away from it all. The room was well presented with all amenities for a comfortable stay. Our room overlooked the golf course which gave a great open feel. The spa and treatments were out of this world! The pool area looked out onto the golf course from floor to ceiling windows. All the facilities were perfect, with the jacuzzi heavenly hot to take away the stresses with the bubbles! The staff doing the treatments were very attentive and the full body massage was one of the best I have ever experienced. The downfall of the hotel were the Shelbourne restaurant staff AND food at dinner! For an establishment of this calibre the food was poorly executed and the staff were unaware of menu options/availability etc and generally conveyed a feeling that they were not bothered if their customers were happy or not. Highly disappointing as I looked forward to a good meal after a relaxing and self-indulgent day but this was not delivered. The restaurant was not particularly busy and therefore the disinterested staff had no call for the inattentive service. Overall, Bowood is the perfect retreat to get a real break from busy lives, and I would happily return for a relaxing break...i would enjoy it more if the food matched the par of the spa/treatments/room.
04/16/15 Norman G London, United Kingdom
Everything was excellent but meals on the golf break were at the Brasserie.. about 300 yds away outside, but fortunately the weather was good. Menu VG for a couple of nights. Golf course quite long and challenging for the first round.
"Made to feel special."
04/14/15 Craig A Chippenham
My wife and i had our wedding cerimony here 5 years previous and returned for an anniversary weekend stay to relax and spend some time without the children just to ourselves, we found our stay and the hotels facilities top class. We would highly recommend.
"Golf and overnight stay"
04/12/15 Claire D Luton
the golf course was excellent for the time of year. It was a lovely well appointed hotel but the whole experience was spoilt by very poor service in the dining room and the breakfast was cold, dried out and inedible. The problem in the dining room would be very easy to correct if the staff were given proper training.
