I've stayed here a few times and never thought to write a review till today. We've always had great experiences when staying here and really feel as though it's a hidden gem. It's in such a great location, just a little drive into a very picturesque town. Love the room decor ... They're all so unique and the bathrooms are something I have to have in my own place one day! All very friendly staff and beautiful spa and gardens ... We will definitely be returning.

Stayed: October 2013, travelled as a couple

We visited this hotel on a Living Social deal. It is attractively set in lovely grounds, in a quiet little village 'off the beaten track', (yet easily accessible). On arrival we, plus our friends, were greeted warmly both at Reception and by the Manager, who found time for a friendly chat. Our snack lunch was very fresh, and promptly served in the very comfortable lounge bar/extension (the prawn sandwiches can be highly recommended!). The service we received was 'spot on' throughout our stay. Dinner, complete with amuse-bouche and a quality wine, was a really delicious meal, again very professionally presented. Breakfast was an equally pleasurable experience, the bacon and field mushrooms being particularly noteworthy. Our room was spacious, beautifully furnished / equipped and our en-suite impeccably clean (although our room was very warm, requiring the fan on overnight). This proved a memorable, relaxing stay which we hope very much to repeat. We have no hesitation in recommending this very well-run hotel.

Have stayed in this hotel in September as my husband birthday treat. We stayed only one night but truly enjoyed it. It was a surprise gift, we had our lunch there and then checked into the room, which was very nice. It wasn't too big but very comfortable and bathroom had lovely toiletries. A the evening we dined in the restaurant and the service was first class, we even got a complementary glass of champagne and made felt very well looked after. Bed if very comfortable and shower powerful. At the morning we had our breakfast which was very nice. A good buffet and then full English with a great coffee. We would definitely go back hopefully for a bit longer.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and had a very mixed experience. We originally booked a suite as it was a special occasion but were contacted a few days before and told that we were unable to be accommodated unless we switched to a luxury double room with a bottle of champagne thrown in for our disappointment. We accepted but on arrival were shown to a standard room on the 2nd floor at the back overlooking the roofs and a noisy boiler. The room was very clean and comfortable, a good standard, and in the circumstances the champagne came in very handy. My husband complained to the receptionist and she said as there was a wedding on the Saturday and Sunday there was nothing they could do but they were very sorry. We ate in the restaurant on the Friday evening which was empty apart from one other couple. The food was delicious the service very pleasant and we had coffee in the Lounge, very nice evening. Breakfast again very good, service also. However on our return from Chester on the Saturday the wedding party had arrived and we were very much second fiddle!! The room we had was over the ballroom so music was blasting away till 12. The following morning another very nice breakfast. We feel that our stay at this very nice hotel would have been just great if our room had been overlooking the front, and was a deluxe double room as promised. Perhaps the reception could have asked if we had enjoyed our stay when we paid our bill.

Room Tip: If the ambience and view are important, ask for a room overlooking the front and avoid room 14.

We had our Golden Wedding Lunch at the Hotel on Saturday last and it really was good. Obviously getting the people together is difficult and Stacey helped my wife to organise everything, nothing too much trouble. Tony the Manager met us on the day and had a nice informal chat before lunch. A Wedding was taking place at the same time as our Golden wedding lunch party and it was nice to watch the bride being photographed with her white Vintage Rolls outside our Bay window. The food drinks and service were excellent and we all throughly enjoyed ourselves. Some of the party stayed at the Hotel overnight and enjoyed their stay.
This Hotel and its staff give a feel good factor to the guests that I have rarely experienced in other Hotels. For a nights stay or a function I would have no hesitation in recommending Rowton
Hall Hotel and our family are looking to hold another event next year.
