My partner paid for 2 nights here for my bday treat. A wonderful thought. The drive up is very impressive - very grand.......a nice touch like parking your car / carrying in luggage would be nice (like Ragdale Hall). We had a room with a balcony, overlooking the golf course. Beautiful setting - we often saw Deers and swans. Popular... More

If you are a golfer and want a great experience in after golf dining or just a burger this is the place to go. The course was well manicured and a good test of golf. Our dinner was exceptional, especially the home smoked salmon starter with horseradish ice cream and cucumber sorbet and the wine list more than adequate without... More

Booked a spa day with my sisters and mum which we do every year. Spent a bit more than usual to come to Bowood and I think we all agreed it was worth it. The staff were all very welcoming and friendly. The view from the pool and Jacuzzi is amazing and very relaxing. Unfortunately during our visit the steam... More

A delicious meal was enjoyed by the four of us. The starters were quite varied and unusual. My duck was delicious. For main courses we enjoyed sea bass and sea trout which was very nice too. To top it all the strawberry roulade was really yummy. All through the meal the very attentive staff were very professional and knowledgable too.... More

Had a two day family golf and spa weekend. Hotel is fantastic. It is a little expensive but you get what you pay for. Food excellent and rooms perfect. Good spa facilities and a great golf course. Man in golf shop was a bit miserable but all in all very good.

I would recommend for anyone wanting a really nice stay away - the team who we interacted with where very pleasant, accomodating; the room but in particular the bathroom very well appointed and spacious down to the toiletries; nice touches like fresh cookies in your room and water each day. The restaurant for dinner was exceptional but beware the menu... More
