We spent one night at Cowley Manor and were impressed with the beauty of the grounds. What a pleasure to sit and admire the view from the terrace while our son played on the lawn below which was setup with a pile of building blocks, mega blocks, connect four and other games. Equally lovely was walking through the grounds and... More

Before arriving I had been in contact with the hotel as I sent them some birthdays banners etc to go in the room. We... More

I think this is our 4th stay at fabulous Cowley Manor, and even the weather was fantastic, as it always seems to be when we visit. Heaven! Very much looking forward to staying again, when the new restaurant is open.

We visited Cowley Manor a few weeks ago, whilst visiting family in the area. We were really excited about it, as family visit regularly and the pictures of the grounds always looked amazing. And therein lies the problem with Cowley Manor. The building, the grounds, and the decor are all great - a fab mix of contemporary and traditional. However,... More

Just found myself one of five guests in reception waiting to check out with some type of complaint to get off our chests. And looking at the reviews, it would seem that the issues people were complaining about are worryingly consistent and not simply the rantings of joyless TripAdvisor pedants. It's our fourth visit here, it's very much an only... More

Wife and I stayed for one night in a Great Room. Hotel is a blend of old and new - beautiful grounds and good service with excellent food. The hotel was full with a wedding and guests but you would not have known it. The hotel and grounds are vast and staying in room #8 which is in the old... More

It is nice to stay in a hotel that doesn't feel like you are staying in a hotel. Excellent unobtrusive staff provide what you want or need without a second thought, the setting is beautiful and the facilities are fantastic.

The people are very kindly. The hotel is perfect and the garden is so nice. We had room 1,that's a very big room with a perfect bed, douche, bath and a good sit. We had dinner at night, was delicious. We come certainly back.
