“The perfect place for a retreat or a reunion”
Reviewed April 30, 2011

Good location, near enough to Hereford or Ross for amenities or stay in Fownhope for a quiet country weekend. Friendly welcome, wide choices for breakfast- try the smoked haddock - comfortable accommodation, lounge with wellstocked bar and library.

The Bowens hotel was a real find. Perfect for a family get together. Good sized rooms, delicious breakfasts, friendly staff. Lovely lounge with drinks available on a 'tab'.

We had accomadation in a converted outhouse. Felt like a cheap 70's chalet. Cobwebs and carpet in the bathroom... Can't comment on rooms in main house but the best that could be said for our bit was that it was somewhere to sleep and the sheets were clean. The owners have dogs which appeared to be kept out of the guest rooms but not the kitchen. Breakfast was fine. Hard vto find as although there was a very large and clear sign with the hotel name in splendid paint, it was hard to spot as it wasn't hanging on the wrought iron hanging post outside but behind a bike in the garage.

The property is now under new ownership and the rooms referred to in the review ("stables") in the courtyard have all been thoroughly cleaned and/or freshly painted. The age of the property and the beams do make cobwebs a challenge but we endevour to keep the rooms as spotlessly clean as possible.

I found the hostess of this hotel wonderful. The breakfasts were great, the rooms were very spacious and comfortable. The lounge with the fire place was great for a sit down with a book, and tea and sandwiches can be provided upon request. I really felt comfortable and at home in this hotel.
