Visited over the Bank Holiday weekend as were attending a wedding nearby. This is a fantastic place in a great location. The food was excellent & we thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast. The staff were enormously helpful & the room comfortable. We're planning another visit next year to explore more of the surrounding area. Highly recommend the Bower Inn.

Stayed for 2 nights and could not have been more impressed with food, service and general hostelry. All staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and no ask was too great. The owner (Wendy, I think) was always available, mucking in at all tasks and acted as one of the staff, rather than show an aloofness that other owners can sometimes... More

Really enjoyed our stay at Bower Inn, staff were friendly and welcoming, room was very spacious and loved the French bathroom with the huge bath. Bed was really comfortable. Food was delicious, the bar and restaurant had lovely decor and was very homely, it was a busy Saturday night but the staff still took time to check everything was ok,... More

A really pleasant surprise - as someone who stays in a lot of hotels for work this is one of the best I've stayed in of late, and is very good value for money. Good food, friendly service and a great blend of character and modern touches. Particularly impressed with the hdmi/usb connections on the wall for connecting devices to... More

I recently stayed overnight on a business trip. Firstly, warning, do not use postcode on your Satnav, you will end up in the housing estate. Use Bower Lane and you will find it easier. It is kind of in the middle of nowhere, but not a problem. Recently renovated by the owners in 2010 the pub/restaurant are adjoined to the... More

We stayed for two nights over a weekend, ourselves and our two children. We had two rooms, one twin and a double which was next door at the end of the corridor. The rooms we stayed in were finished in May 2015 and are very well appointed and very clean. There are lots of little homely touches making this inn... More

Visited the Bower Inn with a friend who lives & grew up in the local area, for a quick lunch. We arrived just after 12:30 and were a little perplexed to be told they could not take our order until 1pm. This was a Tuesday lunchtime and a glance around the restaurant showed it to be less than half full.... More

A very unfortunate event and I am sorry that you were disappointed. The staff were correct to inform you that we would be unable to take your order straight away - we already had 30 guests ordering who had booked their tables in advance - always our priority. We try really hard to be honest about potential delays regardless of... More

Stayed in the Bower Inn on the way down to Cornwall and we were delighted with the decision. As travelling down on a Friday night , we predictably got stuck in traffic, we rang ahead and were able to arrange ordering some food before we checked in. The staff were extremely friendly and the food was lovely. The room was... More

Criticism is always difficult to take, regardless of what it is or who you are. However, objective criticism is always welcomed and only helps us to improve. Peter More
