Cowley manor is stunning, the food, staff and location cant be faulted. I booked a weekend away with my mother and upon booking we were told we 'would be able to choose spa treatments upon arrival.' when we arrived we did just this, we booked dinner and enquired after the availability of treatments. unfortunately the spa was fully booked for...

I booked Cowley via the Mrandsmrssmith.com website based on their recommendation as I was looking for somewhere special to take my wife for our anniversary. We booked a package which included two nights stay, 2 dinners and a spa treatment which came to about £1000. I called the spa to book the treatment a couple of weeks in advance and... More

This is a smart combination of traditional Cotswold house with contemporary decor and furniture plus blazing log fires on a damp January day. The staff were uniformly attentive and polite. The bedrooms well appointed with both bath and shower facilities and my room had a separate loo. Food in the restaurant was very good and breakfast buffet excellent . Hard... More

This is rightly a 5 star establishment. It is not formal, it is relaxing, hip and most of all classy. The staff are second to none, nothing is too much trouble, truly charming and genuinely helpful. There is no formality about Cowley Manor, it is not plush, it is a contemporary 5 star hotel that works. The food at the... More

I wouldn't agree with recent review that this place isn't what it was. We returned after 7 years recently and still loved it. It is high standards but relaxed. Great little touches like the books, minibar contents, DVD library and that you don't have to eat posh in the lovely restaurant - you can have burger or pizza instead. The... More

Visited Cowley manor for 2 nights for our 1 year anniversary. Really loved our room, split level with the bathroom on the upper lever, gave a feel of a ski chalet. The spa was lovely and the staff and my massage was delightful. The swimming pool would be good in either summer or winter as there is both indoor and... More

We have been coming here for 12 years and it never fails to impress. The green tank tops come and go but the staff are unfailingly welcoming, the food fantastic and the facilities excellent. The restaurant has had a great makeover and hopefully we will be back...........

Stayed for three nights over new year. The hotel is a lovely converted country house, with the interior décor very much in a cool retro Scandinavian style. The spa is great, if a bit pricey, and the restaurant very good quality. We had room 5 in the stable block, which is the 'better' class of room. It's actually over three... More

If I were to die now (well actually not quite now as I've booked 2 nights..!), my life would be complete. Crowley Manor is the ultimate country getaway - large communal rooms to enjoy drinks or food or read a paper. Rooms in The Stable are large, modern and totally peaceful. Currently sitting in on of the main rooms, drinking... More

would not recommend this hotel due to incompetent and rude staff. My wife and I booked up in June for a 2 night break between Christmas and New Year. We received an e-mail on Christmas eve saying our dates had changed, this was the hotel changing our dates not us. On contacting we found the staff very unhelpful and very... More
