    Fabulous

    The room was excellent ( Room 1 stable block - classed as their `better room`) - was on 2 levels and very modern and stylish. A well euqipped room ( i.e DVD player, huge bath, seperate shower cubclie - power shower with duckboard flooring ) with lots of windows and light.Spa was also lovely. Lots of treatments available and plenty of loungers around the outdoor pool which was heated; also the same to be said for the indoor pool.Grounds beautiful and spacious and found them very relaxing; the food was very nice.

    The only thing I would say is to double check your room rate on arrival and ensure you take your booking confirmation. We did this to discover that we had been overcharged drastially for the first night. But once we had it queried with them, they rectified it immediately. Also, a small bottle of still and sparkling water is provided in the room but this has to last you the whole length of your stay. These were never replenished daily, which I think is the least you can expect for the price you pay for a room. We would return though, so nothing too major.

    Excellent value for such a luxury hotel

    Fabulous

    We thought that the ambience of the place was excellent, traditional yet modernised. The swimming facilities were great and the bar also offering a good range of cocktails.

    We felt that the food whilst being acceptable was not up to the standard one would expect of a hotel of this standing.

    Superb

    The atmosphere was very relaxing and pleasant. The food was very good and reasonably priced: one did not feel ripped off as in so many similiar establishments.

    We stayed in the stable block and the lighting was inadequate in the sitting room. A reading light over the sofa is needed.

    Superb

    Staff were friendly and professional. The grounds were superb and the wellies a nice touch. Accomodation was very comfortable, albeit a bit quirky with our "room" split over three floors. The atmosphere was excellent.

    No facilities to make hot drinks.

    Very good

    The location was beautiful and the grounds well kept.

    The room we were booked into was in the Stable Block and actually covered 3 floors. A very small sitting area on the ground floor, bathroom on the 1st floor and bedroom on the second floor (no windows to open on that floor) For people of a mature age it was totally unsuitable especially as my partner has to go to the bathroom at least a couple of times in the night. Also the stairs between each floor were very narrow.

    Exclusive

    Stylish and relaxed country house hotel in beautiful grounds with a great spa facility and swimming pools. Very laid back with very stylishly appointed bedrooms.

    The restaurant is not quite up to the standard of the hotel. It does lunch and comfort food very well but the evening menu is a bit limited and should be more seasonal and change more often.

    Guest rating

    Money had been spent on the furnishings, toileteries galore in the room, more of a snack bar than mini bar, spa lovely.

    Really let down by poor service, below standard breakfast, lack of information/signs, no tea or coffee making facilities in room, and no air con.

    Fabulous

    Beautiful grounds and building. Relaxing atmosphere. Striking indoor pool.

    The restaurant kitchen was very slow and the waitstaff in the dining room was fairly amateur.

    Cowley is design heaven with exceptionally excellent and properly friendly service. It is one of my favourite places to stay.

    Exclusive

    The cheerful friendliness of all the staff. The absence of stuffiness and restrictions on children. The unexpected and quirky interior design. The spa. Dogs are welcome.

    Good

    A good place to relax and do nothing.

    A little isolated during bad weather resulting in need to drive to walk.
