My boyfriend and I booked a valentines spa break. This included an overnight stay, 3 course meal, breakfast and an hour long spa treatment. The location is beautiful, the rooms are luxurious and the whole hotel has a 'relaxing' atmosphere. The spa facilities were brilliant and kept clean.

The room we stayed in was spotless, the maid even came to change our water bottles, replenish items and tidy early evening whilst we had dinner.

The treatment was lovely and relaxing, the staff were very friendly and helpful. I will certainly be returning!

Took ages to come out, Tiny, uninspired sandwiches, not given hot water for tea. The scones were nice but cakes synthetic. The manager was pleasant and attentive when he started his shift but the girls had just ignored us completely, went home and didn't tell the man starting that we were waiting foir the afternoon tea, didn't cater to the vegeterians, mainly ham sandwiches (cut into soldiers).

We had the most wonderful time at Bowood spa today. The treatments were of a very high standard, the beauticians professional, friendly and smart. The meals and drinks from the restaurant were of very high quality with the added bonus of 5 star service. Great facilities through out the spa, clean, modern and everything you need for a relaxing day. The only downside was how busy and very noisy the pool became at 4 ish when a lot of screaming children came in, however, we went to the Morning room for the most fabulous cream tea.

I organised a conference for 80 delegates which was a huge success. The staff were all excellent from Wendy who arranged the conference to Arno who delivered it on the evening. The food was outstanding and this hot buffet was enjoyed by all. The room was ideal and set up ready for us. Nice touch was the torches on the entrance to welcome the delegates in style !!

Bowood is a fantastic location for a hotel and spa. The bedrooms are good but far from luxury. No movies and no sat tv, only freeview available. tv is average size. tea and coffee in room and nice touch of free cookies.
For hotel claiming to be luxury the attention to detail is mixed. Where is the toothpaste and toothbrushes? no combe? Simple things like this should never be missed!
hotel seems a bit disorganised as turn down didnt happen until 8pm? seems strange a leaves guests confused looking for breakfast card. btw £5.50 for tray service! should be free really no one likes hidden charges. No 24 hr room service either which for a "luxury hotel" is unbelievable! Not bad hotel, just missing the basics. Not luxury!

A perfect antidote to the winter blues! Super hotel , well designed with great attention to detail in all areas of the hotel. Very attentive staff who were always on hand to serve or help. Good restaurant although we picked the day the menu changed and there were a few technical issues but the staff were great and things improved the next day. A quiet tranquil location and great spa.

A group of us-two couples -had a fantastic three night break at this hotel last week. It is very classy and upmarket, yet not dauntingly formal. The rooms and bathrooms are spectacular, and they have delicious home-made biscuits left in the room each day, and the beds are huge and ultra-comfortable The food was good; my vegetarian options for the main meals were good, and although there are two menus and the food is inexplicably cooked in two separate kitchens, we were able to pick from either menu without too much hassle. On one of the mornings there was a hot breakfast buffet as they had more guests that day, but for the other two mornings breakfast was cooked to order. By the way: a big shout-out to Rachel, a bartender and waitress who was attentive, friendly, efficient and knowledgeable about the area. We also had a great chambermaid (do people still use that term? Sorry if not!) a local girl with a beautiful local accent! (Sorry I didn't catch her name)
The spa was just wonderful, one of the very best in all the many hotels I've stayed in over the years: pool, steam, Jacuzzi and sauna all clean and inviting, and avoiding the well signed children's times made it even better!
To sum up: we will definitely come back here after a really first class, relaxing mini-break here. Highly recommended.
