Attended a Burns Night event with the Mrs. Like many of Mercure hotels the venue was a converted period residence. The food was brilliant with large portions. Overall excellent value. The service was both attentive and polite. Would highly recommend this venue

Held a private birthday dinner here on 9th January 2015. 5 bedrooms were booked for us and our guests. I requested the rooms be close together and front facing to enjoy views of the grounds and lake in the morning. No problem! I asked if I could book everyone in as some guests were travelling and I didn't want them... More

Stayed here on business many times over December. The hotel reception staff are superbly cheery and incredibly welcoming and the rooms are very spacious, comfortable with all the mod con needs. Restaurant is absolutely smashing with a great choice on the menu. Steak pie is an absolute must, very much enjoyable. Even though I was staying on business, it seems... More

Dear SamuelP What a lovely review. Thank you. It was a pleasure hosting your numerous visits to our hotel during the course of last month.

Loved this hotel! Outside of Gluocester, set in quiet setting with lovely gardens and plenty of history. Rooms were large with great views of the lake and gardens. Service was great and the lounge was comfy and warm. Really enjoyed our stay and used the hotel as a base to explore surrounding villages in the gloucestershire area. Breakfast was really... More

Grade 2 listed 4* hotel. Had my doubts as it's an old wood framed window hotel. Was a pleasant supprise in most ways. Large, comfortable rooms with a large radiator and aircon. Clean bathroom. Appropriate decor. Only problem with the room was the noise from the radiator and the bathroom fan didn't turn off... at all. That said there was... More

Just left this very nice hotel after spending a night ( first visit ). Lovely location and in huge grounds, needs work done on the inside, very dated bed rooms/ bathrooms. However having said that the lounge and bar areas are extremely comfortable. Great place for pre dinner drinks. The staff here were exceptionally friendly and made every effort to... More

I thought an Abba Tribute night would be a good night out for our company Christmas party, but was very disappointed. We were all crammed in to the room, to a point where once in your seat you couldn't get out and the staff could only serve from one side of the table. This meant that they were leaning across...

I stayed at Bowden Hall over the Christmas holidays. It is a stunning period manor house in the suburb of Upton St. Leonard, near Gloucester. The staff were fantastic, the good at the restaurant was great and the room quite spacious as well. The grounds were beautiful.
