It started of with a beautiful drive down a lush green country lane and ended in a postcard perfect scene. The Mercure Gloucester, Bowden Hall Hotel will take your breath away..... Beth, the receptionist that greeted us was friendly , helpful and went above and beyond to make us feel special...thank you Beth.... The room was breathtaking, clean and spacious...the bed was very comfortable and the pillows were great. Breakfast, was just to our liking....

As good as could be when at work.

Neil M. Couples - 17/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Enjoyed my stay. It was a hot weekend and with no are con' in the room it was important to open the windows but out of 3 large windows only one would partially open. House keeping was excellent. Lots of stairs to keep you fit. Bed was great, the toilet did not refill very quickly (the room was at the top of the building). No 240v sockets adjacent to the bed and no table lamps only ceiling down lighting - the dimmer for the down lights was faulty. No shelf in the bathroom for toiletry bags etc. Dinner and service was good.

Very good

Having never been to the hotel before we were very impressed It is a fantastic building in a lovely setting,very well appointed inside ,loved the overall look of the lounge area etc and our bedroom was superb,except for not being able to open the windows further as it was extremely hot. All in all it was a very pleasant stay.

Lovely relaxing stay.

Richard Couples - 16/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Excellent location, the staff were great and attentive. food was very good. The bar was brilliantly run, with great staff interaction. Room was good. Nearest thing to a complaint is the breakfast experience was a bit inconsistent. We had to ask for one or two things that were not on the table etc. But breakfast was still ok...not a major problem!

Staff great, hotel bedroom not so good, argument over the bill

Good, apart from shortcomings in bedroom and bathroom

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Keith P. Couples - 14/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

We were not given the family room promised when the booking was made. However, the bedding was altered to suit our needs, but there were insufficient hanging facilities for our clothes. The room was also very hot, even when the window was fully open. The towel drying facilities were quite inadequate and a safety handle on the wall by the bath would make showering less dangerous, particularly for older people. A lavatory brush would be useful too! Apart from these things our stay was very enjoyable ; staff were always helpful and pleasant and food well served and delicious.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We hope to welcome you back to our hotel very soon! Sincerely, Gavin Gavin Jones General Manager

Hotel OK but restaurant food and service lets it down

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Bill Couples - 13/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Room dated but clean and comfortable. Check in friendly and efficient. Dinner in restaurant included on first night but service very slow. Starters had obviously been left standing and were no longer warm. Mains OK. Bar meal on second night, long wait for food and club sandwich cold and bread soggy. Complained and advised would not charge for meal. Checkout problematic, no itemised bill and questioned total. Became clear that still charged for sandwich. Staff attitude not good. Will not be returning.

Good value

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Chris S. Solo - 11/07/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Good points: Friendly, helpful staff from the manager onwards. Attractive grounds and building. Great location in the heart of England. Adequate breakfast considering price point. Comfortable room. Negatives: Very thin walls in the area I was in! (Room 134) You could hear conversations next door and 3 times in the night I was woken up by the rooms either side and the one over flushing their loo. My room could have done with net curtains, the floor to ceiling window with a path right by it was very public when changing! Signage could be improved. Bit of a rabbit warren!
