    Friendly staff, beautiful hotel, wonderful food, relaxed atmosphere, ticks all the boxes!

    Possibly, as it is an old building, lack of air conditioning in the bedrooms might be a problem in the summer.

    Superb

    The hotel is set in beautiful surroundings on the outskirts of Gloucester. It is an ideal location for visits to The Cotswolds, Cheltenham, Bristol and Monmouthshire. Rooms and public areas were comfortable and clean, and being an older property, Bowden Hall retains some personality and features lacking in many chain hotels. The menu was varied and food tasty and well presented, including some local produce. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and a credit to the Ramada organisation.

    A country hotel with lovely grounds, very convenient for Gloucester. We enjoyed an overnight stay on our way to Devon, ideal!.The evening meal was good as was the breakfast. The pool, although small, gave us some relaxation after a long drive.

    The hotel staff were excellent and the rooms and facilities were rich and comfortable. The food was equally great (by UK standards) and I would happily stay here again. The only knock would be that it is a bit out of the way, but that turned out to be very favorable as it allowed me to rest up nicely while traveling on business.

    The fitness center could be better equipped for fitness, and have earlier and longer hours, but it worked just fine.

    Fabulous

    The food served in the bar area was poor and the service was unfortunately slow.

    Our room was very hot, even though the radiator was off. There was a vent in the bathroom that almost continuously gave off heat.

    Very good

    We liked using the swimming pool and the staff were very friendly

    Didn't like feeling pressured into paying the surcharge on the meal in the restaurant. The waiter added it on and then asked if this was okay, and only told us it was optional when he'd processed the payment.

    Rooms were far too hot - no way to cool them down on a hot day. Over 27'C overnight - could not sleep
