8/10 Very Good

Cowley Manor 2 night stay Feb 2022 The bedroom was the main area of disappointment. Very creaky floorboards which went all the way into the bathroom. No kettle for tea, only a coffee machine where the water doesn't get quite to boiling point. No magnified shaving mirror in the bathroom and poor lighting. We chose this hotel for the spa and was disappointed to find it wasn't within the hotel but across the car park. The location was approx 25 mins from Bourton on the Water. Staff were very helpful. Breakfast included was continental everything else on the menu was chargeable. We thought the wellies outside for guests to use was a lovely novel idea. We will not be returning to this hotel when we re visit the lovely Cotswolds.

Cotswolds luxury
We loved the hotel. The grounds were absutely stunning. The decor was a little odd (it felt out of kilter with the style of the hotel). But it was comfortable. Check in was very slow, especially as there was only one staff member at the desk. Perhaps the hotel could consider having someone else do the tour to help speed things up? The hotel's app is the best we've experienced (the wifi strength was excellent too, which helped). There were some standout staff (eg the gentleman on the check-in desk, whose name we sadly didn't catch and Javier in the restaurant). Overall we had a wonderful stay, exactly what we needed!
