Just returned from a wonderful long weekend at Cowley. I've stayed at this hotel before and it never fails to disappoint. We paid around £375 a night for a room in the stable block which allowed us to bring our dog. This included a three course meal each night. The grounds are some of the best I've seen anywhere and...

I have been staying at Cowley for about 12 years and have seen several changes of hotel management and the consequential impact. 12 years ago the place was uber cool, quiet, discrete and excellent service. Current manager Elliott has recaptured that sense of `Cowley` - a great place to chill out, great food, discretely friendly and attentive staff and Gilly... More

I often take my children here for afternoon tea and without fail it is always lovely. The children shared 2 afternoon teas which were presented on tiered plates with home-made soup, sandwiches & layers of the most wonderful home-made cakes. From battenbergs through to the most delicious melt-in-the-mouth scones served with homemade jam & clotted cream. Afterwards we walked in... More

We stayed at Cowley Manor for 5 days as a break away from London; we'd booked 2 rooms the first being a 'Better Room' in the Stable block and the second being the 'Good Room' in the main house. The rooms have a somewhat modern design, large with great amenities including the 'Green and Spring' bath products. Our honest opinion... More

We usually don't book hotels at this level but absolutely loved it. The atmosphere in the whole hotel is just so relaxing and enjoyable and we came back very relaxed. Not stuffy, not snooty - just cool. The super modern decor that contrasts the old manor house, the art everywhere and the way it is set in the wonderful garden... More

Hotel grounds are nice and we have usually enjoyed our stay. Of late hotel staff seem very disinterested in its clientele. We stayed in a room but it was so hot and uncomfortable that we could not sleep. We did mention this the next morning but reception staff were not interested. In the winter this place is nicer, in the... More

Today was our 6th visit for lunch and we took a couple of friends and a 1 year old. Ventured out to the lovely terrace and we just love the views over the lake and beyond. Service always friendly but always sooooo slow, despite it being quiet. I opted for bean burger and chips: it was very dry, tasteless and... More

My husband and I arrived on a gloriously sunny Sunday afternoon. Lucky for us this meant we could relax in the sun loungers on our suite balcony which overlooked the fabulous grounds. The rest of the room was lovely: enormous bed, the latest gadgets, cute seating area with flat screen tv etc. The bathroom was huge! The bath could easily... More

We stayed for the one night 'spa and stay' special offer - it was such a treat, we wished we could have afforded to stay longer. Hotel - Faultless. The service was impeccable, and all the staff we met were thoughtful, polite and cheerful. The hotel interior was beautiful and the grounds stunning - we particularly enjoyed resting in the... More

We luckily choose a really hot summer's day and we had a fantastic time. The only thing that disappoints was the food. Totally unimaginative - the caesur salad was just salad leaves covered in mayonnaise. So much so the lettuce was wilting. When I showed the staff - they said it was meant to be like that!!! Heaven knows what... More
