Romantic, peaceful getaway.
Serene, romantic getaway in the peaceful Cotswolds hills. My partner and I had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and you have everything you need at the spa.

Cowley manor
Overall it was a good hotel and good facilities. Although for a 5 star hotel it needs a bit of attention to detail, more staff training. For the 3 times I asked a bowl at breakfast the waiter had his finger inside it, amenities and mini bar in the room not replaced. The Spa is was clean and enjoyable place to be, although the staff member bearly noticed that we were coming in, for the type of hotel I would expect at least a free cup of tea. We would come back for sure, the restaurant food it was stunning and the head chef menu was amazing.

Take the wife and get brownie points well worth it
Very friendly and when we got into the hotel/ manor Clare the receptionist showed us around and showed us how to use the coffee machine which we couldn’t get it to work so she got us a kettle and coffee to go with it. The leisure facilities were great and the restaurant food was not to my taste and breakfast was different but filling the only thing that I thought was wrong was you had to pay for a cooked breakfast but don’t need. Very clean and the house keeping was done twice a day would go back

This property has so much potential. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms comfortable. However, the vibe is not at all what you would expect from a Cotswold Country manor. Seems as though they are trying to hard to be cool, hence the club music going on through the manor 24/7, including at 7:30am. Also, the staff at the front desk stares at their computers all day and night. Also, beware when you book, especially with families.The advertise the room as being once price, but then add on quite a bit of $ for your children to stay per night. When I asked about the extra 500Euro charge, I received a rathe curt response. Good news is that this property is under new management, and will hopefully give it the attention this beautiful place deserves.
