Spent one night here for a wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed it. Using a last minute offer of one night plus round of golf or spa treatment, it was good value. Service was great, very friendly. Great food too (scallops, fish main courses, sancerre wine). Husband played golf, I did the walk around the domain (you can borrow wellies). Breakfast was noisy due to lots of kids (we had left ours at the grandparents!) so we had breakfast near the bar, which was perfect. Enjoyed the pool. The Bowood house & garden are free when you are at the hotel and they are not to be missed. Absolute gem of a place, and will return with the kids!

Room Tip: 220 was good.

I am glad that you got to try a pair of the wellies. This addition was made by Lady Lansdowne and they have gone down very well. It seems that you managed to see and experience all the delights of Bowood Estate. Using the Spa, playing golf, visiting the house and Gardens and eating in our restaurant, you had a busy time. We hope that you will come back with your children or for another ‘escape’ soon.

A group of us had a great meal at this Hotel. All 4 of us had stunning meals. The goats cheese starter was delicious and the roast pork really moist and full of flavour. One of the group had the beef and said it was heavenly along with the stunning desserts.

It must be remembered that this place is really aimed at golfers who don't have kids. Whilst they have kid menus, one guest room near the bar that is converted to an unsupervised kids room with Wii, lego and other board games as another reviewer has said it's really not that kid friendly. The pool for kids is available at quite strange and limited hours.

I would certainly recommend this place for couples.

Location, setting, food are great. However, if you think your children will be able to go swimming...

...think again.

Times when children are allowed are during breakfast(!?) and 4pm -5pm, so make sure you get back from any day trips early...

Times really need adjusting

We just spent 2 nights at the hotel celebrating my father in laws 80th birthday. Had around 16 rooms hired.

Firstly the staff were all amazing and couldn't do enough for you - we had around 20 children with us and they were made to feel most welcome at all times. They even altered menus to enable the kids to eat what they fancied (eg sausage and chips instead of mash, plain burgers instead of cheese and plain pasta with cheese etc). The restaurant staff couldn't do enough for us as the same with the bar staff - names I remember were Emily, Alex and Aaron!

Receptionists were wonderful and helpful too.

The food was fantastic on both evenings. Brasserie the first night and we hired the private function the second night.

THE ROOMS were spotlessly clean! The pillows and duvets were the most fluffiest I'd ever slept with (like big marshmallows cuddling me)! The kids loved the bottle of water and ice. I loved the digital radio with the iPhone docking station on!

The bathroom was beautiful.

Honestly it was a wonderful experience - thank you to everyone at the Bowood Hotel for looking after us all so well! I hope to return one day.

Overnight stay as part of a Xmas present to take in a round go golf and use of the spa. Arrived a little later than expected due to traffic on the M4 and felt a little rushed. The pro in the golf shop offered us a later tee time to allow us time to warm up on the excellent practice facilities. The course was stunning and very well maintained. Bunkers were hard but the greens were true. Hotel facilities were fantastic, room had a lovely view, was well appointed and had a shower to die for. Breakfast was fantastic-loved the buffet style approach. Staff were very friendly. Would come back.
