We have been treating ourselves to staying here for many years now and having read quite a few mixed reviews on here about the service and overcrowding due to breaks now being offered on discount websites etc. we were wondering if things had gone downhill. Thankfully this was not the case and we had a truly wonderful relaxing few days. We were here for 2 nights for my fiance's birthday and stayed in 'Poppy' that we had requested in advance and the room as always was lovely. It is a nice big room with comfy bed, 2 windows and great bathroom with separate bath and shower.

Food as always is top notch. We had lunch on arrival and the following 2 days and all our choices were delicious. Would definitely recommend the Rowhill burger and club sandwich! Dinner both nights was lovely too. Service was very efficient and there was a nice buzzy atmosphere in the
restaurant (sometimes it can be a little too quiet). As previous reviewers have said, the food is delicious and wonderfully presented. My fiancé had the scallops with black pudding both nights followed by pork plate one night and chicken the next. I had l had the crab ravioli followed by sea bass, then chicken confit followed by the chicken. All were mouthwatering and the service spot on. We then had coffees in the lounge area/brasserie which I noticed had a bit of a upgrade. We particularly liked the new 'throne' chairs!

Our treatments each day were very good too. We had asked for them after midday on requested days and this was arranged. I had forgotten to ask when booking so only requested just prior to our stay by email and whilst they can't guarantee treatment times I had 2 follow up emails saying they would do everything they could. A nice touch!

Spa was good too. Yes, it is smaller than it looks in the photos but this just adds to the charm. We never found it too crowded even on a Friday which you would expect it to be busier. The changing room is not massive but is adequate and has hairdyers and GHD's. Had a bit of trouble with hot water in 2 of the showers, but it could have been me!

All in all another great stay. We left feeling truly relaxed and pampered and will be back again soon.

I spent a day at the spa with my friend, we had a wonderful day from start to finish, the staff could not of been more helpful and made us feel very relaxed as soon as we walked in. We were greeted with Tea, Coffee and Flapjacks and then given a tour of the spa area and told where lunch would be served. We had several treatments all of which were very good, and the therapists were very friendly. The two course lunch that we had was included in the spa day price, we had a choice of dishes to choose from when we arrived, the food was amazing.

I would definitely recommend this spa and will definitely be going back.

We stayed at Rowhill for our wedding in May 2013.
The hotel is beautiful, in fantastic grounds.

The Spa is a fantastic setup. Elegently designed and delightful to relax in.

The rooms are very nice.
They are at the more expensive end, i would suggest, but this is not a criticism. They are very pleasant rooms. Clean, tidy and well furnished with nice bathrooms and facilities.

Many thanks to everyone at Rowhill Grange, especially to Jess Davis, Carol and Penny, for making our wedding absolutely perfect.
We had an On the Quiet package at Rowhill. Jess was fantastic arranging the day for us and was a great witness, too.

Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff we came into contact with. Providing us with anything and everything we could wish for.
We stayed the night before our wedding and we were allowed to stay in this room much later than a regular checkout so we could get ready before our wedding night room was ready for us.

Food was excellent, we were given preferential treatment and given space all to ourselves away from other hotel guests for our wedding dinner.
All of this was organised to suit us and our time frames.

The photographer Rowhill Grange arranged for us was excellent, and we recommend Nigel to anyone.

Also, thanks for looking after our home made wedding cake for us whilst we stayed with Rowhill. It wouldn't have survived without your care!

I have nothing but praise and thanks for everyone at Rowhill.

Highly recommended.

I stayed here with my partner last week for one night in a luxury room, good size and clean! Had the chocolate afternoon tea which was lovely and filling. The pool is beautiful, really nice lightning and hydrotherapy pool was relaxing as noone was around and had whole pool to ourselves! It seemed clean enough, I saw the wallpaper peeling but not the end of the world. Ghds in changing room as a great touch. Grounds are stunning! Breakfast was sent to our room and was lovely, nice full English breakfast. Would definitely return, preferred it to there neighbouring hotel Alexander house which is 5*!

We booked the on the quiet wedding package and was amazed at the value and service. All the staff were amazing and we had a perfect day which we will remember forever. From the very first meeting straight through to the wedding day everything was planned and managed for us so we could enjoy our day without any unnecessary stress. Our co-ordinator did an amazing job and even managed to make it snow especially for us. The kitchen put on a high quality meal which everyone in our party commented on and loved so all happy and the breakfast was difficult not to go back for seconds. Our room was beautiful, modern with a fantastic shower and bath, double sink with a bigger than expected bed which we appreciated. The service was more than we ever thought possible before our day and we couldn't recommend the venue more. If we could mark it 6 out of 5 we would do. Congrats to Rowhill staff they did there venue justice.
