“Excellent value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

I stayed with my elderly mother, and had requested ground floor rooms and was happy to say that this was met. I found the staff attentive and polite, especially at breakfast when nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was wonderful. The rooms were tastefully furnished and comfortable. My only gripe was that the toilet seat in my room was broken and fixed with black tape - it should really have been replaced. AS we only stayed one night it didnt seem to be too much of a problem. All of the facilities were good - the pool warm, the gym small but functional. The Bar area and staff very good. We were travelling for a family christening so one night was great but i could have stayed longer! Would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a decent stay at a reasonable price. I will be back and hopefully enjoy the same standards

We stayed at the hotel 8/8/11 to 11/8/11 on the all inclusive deal.

The all inclusive deal was excellent value for money and all the staff were very friendly, helpful, cheery and eager to please. The manager was clearly a hands on manager and was always there or thereabouts which was very reassuring and a credit to him. There are conditions to the deal so read these (which are provided in your room) and you will have very little or nothing to complain about.

Room was fine. The only slight downside is that the hotel does not have air conditioning in bedrooms but knowing this we took a fan with us which served us well. Beds very comfy.

The hotel is well situated for exploring the surrounding area. Buxton is a lovely town for day out.

I would say to finish that especially on the all inclusive deal you are getting a genuinely good offer and you are not paying for a 5 star hotel so don't expect it. The hotel is perfectly comfortable and welcoming. We had a great stay and would go back

Stayed here twice in recent months whilst visiting family in the area and was impressed by the friendly service. It is always a good sign when the manager is on the spot helping out with the (substantial) breakfast and sharing jokes with guests.
Good sized rooms , excellent location, plenty of parking and a nice pool in the adjoining leisure complex

Booked this as a weekend getaway. The hotel has recently been refurbished and the rooms and general areas were all good. The corridor to the room was a bit dated and in need of freshening up but you can see from other areas they are in the process of updating. The bedroom was clean tidy and comfortable. My only gripe would be my pillows were a bit flat and past it but overall the bed was comfy.
The staff were excellent from reception bar to dining they were all polite and could not do enough for you. We were part of the All Inclusive which was amazing value for money. The restrictions and times of bar drink avalability were gien both prior to and on arrival so do not understand previous moans but this does not surprise me on trip advisor as i often feel some people only go away to find faults and try and gain something for nothing. The leisure facilities were good and although you can evidently see that some of the roof decor is in need of paint the area was spotless and well kept. pool was nice and warm and spa was toasty hot!!!
The evening meals were good and i would reccomend the fishcake starter and Porkbelly. On the second evening i paid the suppliment and had a steak which was well cooked and tender. The dining staff could not be more attentive and overall it was good value.
I have stayed in many hotels usually 4 or 5 star as often 3 star hotels can be a hit or miss but this one was a big hit and would not be surprised if they are upgraded to 4 star just on their customer service alone.
I will definatly be looking visiting again!!!!

Service was excellent. Location excellent. Rooms nicely decorated and comfortable. Leisure facilities. Great location. Breakfast very good. The quality of the dinner matched the price. The chef is trying, but the flavours are just a little clumsy and intense. Edible.

Location is brilliant, a leisurely stroll into Altrincham or a short walk to Hale.
My room was splendid and the bed extremely comfortable. Met with friends who were equally impressed with this hotel. The reception area and bar are well decorated and the reception satff very helpful and most pleasant.e enjoyed a tasty dinner, all ordering different things and all satisfied with the meal, Breakfast was buffet style and the choices were myriad.The satff at this hotel are firdt class, friendly, helpful and nothing seems to be too much trouble . Highly recommended.

my wife and I stayed at the Bowden so we could meet up with friends from Manchester.We were delighted with the refurbishment of the hotel since the last time we stayed and the friendly and helpful staff made our stay very enjoyable. our meal in the resturant on Saturday night lived up to the high standard I would expect from a hotel as nice as this one is.
