My partner and I attended our friend's wedding in Spring 2013 at Rowley Manor. The entrance hall, lobby, bar and reception rooms were great, very shabby chic and the wedding was brilliant. BUT that's where the good points
Our room (12) was £100 for the night and it was smaller than our box room at home! It had enough room for a double bed and space down one side of it to walk. So no getting out of bed in the night without disturbing your partner if you're the one against the wall! That was literally it! The bathroom was also tiny with a small bath (no shower), toilet and sink...tiny.
We were travelling a fair distance on the day of the wedding so didn't want to travel in our wedding attire we called the hotel in advance to see if we could check-in a little early just to get changed. They said this was fine and I rang again on the morning of the wedding and they gave me a specific time the room would be ready for...fab, or not quite! When we arrived the unhelpful woman on reception said our room hadn't been cleaned but we could still go up to get changed. Well, I wish we hadn't because the floor was covered in mud, there were towels everywhere, the bed unmade and used coffee/tea supplies. We got changed quickly and left to get a drink from the bar and chill! The bar was cozy but there was only one man serving the whole day, they didn't have quite a few things including some of the draught beers. They only had Becks larger on tap and it was flat! Outrageous too when you consider their prices!! It cost just under £10 for a pint of Becks and a single gin and tonic!
The room was cleaned (ish) whilst we were at the wedding. There was still bits of mud on the tired looking carpet and they had used the same throw on the bed, ew!
Also to add, the kettle was kept on the floor and the window was broken (did not stay open). On reflection we should have stayed nearby and got a taxi after the wedding, it would have probably cost the same but been a much nicer experience.
We didn't complain at the time as we did not want to upset our friends on their wedding day but I certainly would NOT recommend staying here!! We also heard many other guests saying their rooms were tiny and overpriced. Because our friends had fully booked the rooms with their wedding guests, I heard someone say that the hotel had put all the prices up. They must think they can get away with charging what they want because people who aren't local have nowhere nearby that they can stay instead.
Overpriced, tiny, dirty room. Don't do it! We feel like we've been robbed.
