I booked a night at Cowley Manor as a treat for my husbands 30th birthday. I booked the spa and stay package which included dinner, breakfast, use of the spa and a 30 minute treatment each.
We stayed in an "exceptional" room which was large and clean with an outdoor terrace area. There were lots of nice touches in the room. Fresh milk in the mini bar, lollies, penny sweets, a bose docking station, books and magazines, large flat screen TV and the option to borrow a DVD from a large selection of movies. The only bad thing I would say about the room is that the furtiture was bit 'Ikea' and there was no wifi.
My husband and I both had a 30 minute back massage. The therapists were professional and the treatments were very nice. The spa itself was small, dingy and dated. It consisted of a pool with a concrete wall up one side. A small sauna and steam room and a gym neede gutting and updating. The changng rooms were a maze of wood, floors, doors walls again very outdated. In my opinion the whole spa was in need of modernisation.
We had both a three course dinner and breakfast included in our package. The dinner was fantastic again little extras that we werent expecting like goats cheese canape and a selection of delicious bread. The service was brilliant. All the staff were attentive and polite. Breakfast was just as good. We had the choice of ordering from the a la carte menu or helping ourself to fruit and cereal. There were several jugs of fruit juice to choose from which was wonderful as I am a big lover of juice.
In conclusion we had a lovely stay at the hotel, wonderful food, wonderful service, wonderful room. If the main reason you are going is for a spa break, dont bother. Splash out a bit extra and go to Pennyhill Park in Surrey for a real spa break.
