I think this has to be one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Our room was large, bed was very comfortable, facilities were excellent and shower was superb. Great views out of the bedroom window. The best reason for coming here are the absolutely brilliant hosts, Neil and Rosemarie who could not do enough for us during... More

Our room had been newly updated (shortly to happen all through the hotel) and was completely blissful. State of the art shower room and fabulously comfortable bed. Who cares about the rain and the cold! The hotel lounge was beautifully decorated and had a roaring open log fire with wonderful sofas - the best place to have my Fever Tree... More

We stayed here a few years ago when we were booked into HFW River Cottage for a meal......it's situated nearby, just a short taxi ride away. We stayed in the four poster bed room, it was a lovely stay, very elegant and we had a great nights sleep in the super comfy bed.

We stayed at Dower House over the New Year. We were warned that the property was being made ready for major renovations when we booked so we were not phased by the beginnings of a building site in the garden. The owners (Neil and Rosemarie) where excellent hosts. The bedroom was of a reasonable size albeit a little tired and... More

We had a wonderful stay at Dower House. Neil and Rosemary were so welcoming - we felt like we were part of their family. The room was lovely as was the breakfast - the smoked salmon and scramble eggs went down a treat ( full english, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, toast etc etc etc were also available ). Great wine list....

Stayed here for three nights. Neil and Rosemarie were excellent hosts. Made us feel most welcome. The room was excellent, clean and tidy and modernised. The furniture was not usual tat but all of good quality. The breakfast was excellent and there were no cores in the tomatoes (In house joke). Many thanks for three excellent nights. If in vicinity...

Met Neil and Rosemarie at Dower House Hotel. We got the full tour of all rooms, very impressive but our favourite was the stand alone dog friendly annex, but this might be something to do with our lurchers

Dear Dieseldaramum. Thank you for visiting the Dower House and are pleased you would like to return! The Cobb suite is ideal for dogs and/or families which has its own separate access and private area. All the rooms are tiled and with a walk- in shower it is great if dogs decide they need to shower after being in the... More

The warm greeting we had on arrival set the tone for this weekend break. Rosemarie and Neil, the proprietors, clearly like people and do whatever they can to make the stay as close to what you want as possible, from stocking the coffee machine in the room with the coffee you like to booking taxis to ordering newspapers. The room... More

For the price the Dower House is excellent. OK the rooms are not luxurious, but they are clean and comfortable and do not cost the earth. The friendly welcome however exceeds anything you would get from any hotel at any price. Rosemarie goes out of the way to make you feel welcome without being intrusive.
