I had my school prom at this hotel back in 2008 and I knew then that I wanted my wedding here, so when my husband proposed in May 2011, Bowden was our first and only choice! Its a beautiful place, surrounded by amazing grounds with a lake at the end, the perfect scene for photos. The lady we worked with, Kaytie, was very helpful with all the planning and final details. Giovanni was our chef for our food tasting night and he made that night very special, we very much enjoyed the food and he was so helpful, especially when it came to allergies and dietary needs and took our fears away. When it came to our wedding day, Rachel was in charge and she made sure that the day went smoothly. And it did. We had such a wonderful day.
We were married in the Lakeside Suite and had our evening reception in there too. Personally, this is the best room as the whole place is our own for the night, we have our own bar and toilets.
Me and my mum stayed at Bowden the night before the wedding and we were on top floor, its quite a walk up there as there is no lift but the room was great and spacious. The morning of the wedding we were able to move into the four poster room, the bridal suite, quite early to get ready and have photos. The four poster room is an amazing room, very large and a comfy bed, my husband loved this room.
Bowden Hall was very accommodating for my grandparents who had a room on first floor and were able to go straight into their room when they arrived at the hotel BEFORE check in time as we requested because my grandfather has an illness.
Breakfast was nice, we had a cooked breakfast but there is a good variety of fruit and cereals.
Overall, I think Bowden Hall Hotel is a great venue for a wedding and a great place to stay at. We loved every minute of our day and we thank you for making it special!
