“Perfect relaxing break”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

My wife & I decided we needed a couple of days to relax & get away from our daily routines.
We chose Rowhill grange as we have previously visited a sister hotel, Alexander house.

We knew from friends that have previously been to Alexander house ,that the Utopia Spa is truly superb.
Rowhill grange is located in a beautiful setting amongst 15 acres of land close to Dartford.
It's a lovely building which has been beautifully extended over the years by its current owners who we found out were previously interior designers. Quite apparent!!

We arrived a little early so my wife & I had some lunch in the bar area.
After lunch we checked in & were shown up to our room by John, the porter who I must say would fit in nicely in one of the top London hotels, as nothing was too much trouble for him & very helpful & courteous.

Our room was wonderful,spacious & very clean, as one would expect.
My only criticism if only minor, is the lighting in the room.
The bed side light only stays on if the main lights are on!!
Easily rectified by an electrician!!

As I said, a minor observation which had no reflection on the rest of the room.

The Utopia Spa is a truly wonderful experience. Totally relaxing and fabulous decor throughout.
The facilities are superb, the nicest we have experienced for some time.

Though out the whole stay, all the staff were very friendly, with a big thank you to Marvin in the RG restaurant.

We will most certainly return to Rowhill Grange.

Room Tip: I am sure all the rooms are on equal measures, our room was the Wild rose!!

Took my mother here for a birthday treat this week. I booked through Virgin gift experiences. On arrival the grounds are pretty impressive, a long driveway, lovely gardens and the old manor house. We were greeted by a receptionist in the spa who explained how the day worked and shown the changing rooms. These were pretty basic and not quite what I had expected. The pools were lovely and warm and we enjoyed a swim, sauna and various whirl pools, which very relaxing. We then through to lunch (which most did in their robes). My lunch of salmon fish cake with asparagus was lovely but mums Caesar salad was bland and uninteresting. We didn't fancy going back in the water after lunch so went for a walk in the serenity garden where we found some loungers and sat for a while. This is a lovely place, it's not cheap but a nice treat for an occasion.

I booked a table in the restaurant for Mother's Day to have some afternoon tea. We booked the one where children could attend too. There was a magician (who was awful) but the kids loved it. The sandwiches, cakes and scones were all delicious and the children's serving was more than enough for two children! Was truly a lovely afternoon for all the family. Staff were also very welcoming and friendly.

A fantastic time we had at Rowhill on Saturday. I'm so glad we came and saw what Rowhill Grange had to offer in all its glory.
The staff were excellent and they made myself and my partner feel very welcome.
The Spa Facilities are very good and not too busy, just right!
The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and very well kept.
In particular I would like to thank Andrew the restaurant manager for a fantastic service and for making us feel very comfortable. He has a great approach and a real genuine manner towards the diners which made us enjoy the fantastic food even more.
All in all a great weekend, Thank you Rowhill Grange.

Stayed at rowhill grange at the weekend and both me and my partner really enjoyed the stay the room was spacious very comfortable and also primarily relaxing. The hotel grounds are well maintained and are kept to high standards, for those people writing negative reviews my advice is stay at a premier inn as me and my partner had no problems either with price or service, quick check in and straight to spa facilities which are very good. The service at this hotel is high standard and the treatments are reasonably priced we both will be returning v soon and to anybody planning to come here u wont regret it well unless u fall into the premier inn category, so enjoy.

Lots of hens visited Rowhill Grange last Sunday to have afternoon tea to celebrate with the bride to be for her forthcoming wedding. It's a lovely place to hold such an occasion. Beautiful grounds. We were in a private area of the conservatory and also had a reserved area outside as the weather was so lovely. They cater for 3 afternoon teas - afternoon tea, chocolate afternoon tea and champagne afternoon tea. So many lovely sandwiches, cakes and scones. You won't be able to eat them all. So take them home for later. Very good value for money. The staff couldn't do enough for us.
