“golfing weekend”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

This was our 2nd trip to Bowood park first time last year we went with a party of 4 golfers returned this year with a party of 8 golfers, The course was great as was the hotel, service was superb most of the staff were still there from our first visit and remembered us. Food was very good. For the package we had I think this will take a lot of beating, unlike a lot of golf courses there was no stuffiness in the bar or restaurant and the staff and management were excellent looking forward to our next visit.

Had to write to tell everyone about the superb wedding we had at Bowood on Sat 28th September.
Leading up to the event Bowood and especially Nigel the manager were superb in helping arrange everything, leaving no stone unturned.The day itself was unbelievable ! The restaurant was decorated out superbly, the food for the main reception truly fantastic, and the evening buffet went on forever. Throughout the staff were excellent in both the restaurant and the bar.
If you are looking for a wedding venue then this is the place. A quite fantastic day, thank you Nigel and Bowood.

Stayed here on business, when I arrived late the hotel does look impressive all lit up, however that impression soon changed upon entering. The reception area was very small and quite dated, however the gentleman checking me in was very polite and efficient. The room I had on the second floor was very basic indeed, the walls were bare and it was not furnished very well. My "double" bed turned out to be 2 single beds pushed together, so there was a very hard ridge running right the way down the middle of the bed. The pillows were like sleeping on concrete slabs, and I could hear everything going on in the room next door, so all in all I did not have a good night sleep at all. The breakfast buffet was very nice, but that could not make up for the lack of and uncomfortable night i had endured.

We have stayed here twice. Both times we have been satisfied with the food, the room, and the staff. The room rate is reasonable and what you get is good. The food in the restaurant is very good, ditto self service breakfast. There are no lifts, the rooms are a bit basic, the telly is a bit small, and our bathroom a bit whiffy.....but you are not paying city prices and guests should not expect Bowood to be something it's not. The staff were excellent; helpful, friendly, chatty. Just wish the waiting staff wouldn't refer to everyone as 'you guys'. 'Everything OK guys' etc. A pet hate of mine I do admit. But on the whole, well done Bowood. You're doing a good job.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the front overlooking the golf course for the views, and sun in the afternoon.

Booked this hotel on short notice. Really pleased with the outcome. Reception was quick and helpful. Our room was very clean and tidy and also very comfortable. The Breakfasts were plentiful and very good as was the bar food at night with different specials every night. We decided to dine there every night during our 5 night stay and had a different meal each night
and were a delight. Found it a change to stay in a hotel where ALL the staff had a smile on their faces and were very helpful..... Thank you for a most enjoyable stay

Room Tip: All rooms as far as I could tell overlook the course but rooms to the front will have better views a...

Arrived here for a two night stay, was given a room on the top floor no lifts so three flight of stairs. Reception was helpful asking if we did need help with luggage. They also explained how to book the resturant if we needed. As this was a golf club there was a lovely view over the golf greens. The room was big, the bed was twins pushed together and we have had a better nice sleep elsewhere. We only had the bar menu which was lovely and large portions. The breakfast room was large with buffet breakfast which was nice but no continental. The rooms lacked character they were just a standard hotel rooms.

Room Tip: If you can't climb stairs don't go

Hotel is reasonably priced and feels like a corporate hotel, bar reminded me of a Weatherspoons. We stayed 2 nights and our room was ok but the bed was dreadful, could feel the springs digging in you, so we had 2 sleepless nights. Very quiet location and very pretty with sheep in the field opposite and a well maintained golf course. Breakfast was good with a lot of choice, second morning was better as we were offered a choice of eggs, rather than just fried, not sure why this didn't happen on the first morning?
It's a good base for visiting the surrounding beauty spots of North Cornwall, and it would have been more enjoyable has the room been more comfortable.
