How to Get There
Went for afternoon tea with 4 friends for a birthday occassion. We were presented with 1 tiered stand of cakes and sandwiches. We thought more may arrive but they didn’t. We had to ask for extra sandwiches, which we were charged for at 4.50. One pot of tea, so we had to ask for another and then we were charged 3.50 at the end for. So for my £18.00 I had a cup of tea, 3 small sandwiches a tiny lemon drizzle cake a scone and a tiny chocolate cheesecake. We will not be going back!!
Could be so much better.
Hotel is in a very good location, the staff are amazing, every one we met was so friendly and polite. evening meal and breakfast were both excellent. Parts of the hotel did seem a little tired but we would certainly visit again.
My wife used a Groupon voucher to take me to luncheon for my birthday at Rowley Manor. The hotel and setting are lovely with an attractive dining room. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient but I regret the food did not match their standards. My prawn cocktail was smothered in Marie Rose sauce rather than just dressed. The vegetables were almost raw and not attractively presented and the advertised roast potatoes were missing from my wife’s roast pork. We did not stay for pudding. Even with a Groupon deal it was not good value.
A lovely two night stay at Rowley Manor. Staff very friendly and attentive. Breakfast cooked to order to a very high standard and dinner on our first night was delicious. The staff really went the extra mile and nothing too much trouble.
Would definitely return if we are in the area.
Lovely old Georgian house full of charm and old world service. Basic in many ways but a lovely quiet setting adjacent to the Parish Church. Fingers crossed that in the near future the owners or operator's provide investment to lift the status of this hotel. Staff very friendly.
