How to Get There
We went for afternoon tea and thought it was good value. The staff were more than happy to cater for our various food intolerances and allergies. The food was beautifully served and we had a good variety of things on our little cake stands. The lemon drizzle cake was particularly good - moist and tasty! It is in a fantastic setting and the house has been well looked after. We would go again. We did wish we had opted to stay the night too!
What another great night here at Rowley Manor.
Our first time to the Jazz night and it won't be our last .
Superb food ,live Jazz band and fantastic location with lovely helpful staff .
The setting is stunning and you are made to feel very welcome .
Great rooms in this grand old house with some having four poster beds .
Then into Hull on the park and ride just 15 minutes away for some Xmas shopping .
Myself and my husband booked a Groupon deal at this hotel. We had a lovely stay. The house looks splendid at the moment, so welcoming and the views are delightful. It's refreshing to meet staff who really seem to care that you have an enjoyable stay, particularly Jason and Abigail. We had a slight problem with our room but this was quickly resolved by moving to an other nice room. All food was very good, we had evening meals, breakfasts and a cream tea. We will definitely be back.
Stayed here on the 23rd of November. The warm welcome we received from the staff on reception set the tone of our stay. Our room was very comfortable and very clean, even had a four poster bed which was a lovely surprise. We had afternoon tea, which we enjoyed very much. Also the food at dinner and breakfast was first class. The staff were extremely helpful and very friendly but also efficient. I would highly recommend this beautiful country Manor hotel, and we hope to return soon.
Visited Rowley Manor for an overnight stay using Woucher. It was set in a lovely remote part of the area with views of the church and surrounding countryside. Lovely olde-worlde building which needs a bit of maintenance but it all adds to the character of the place. Comfy four poster bed, hot shower, tea and coffee making facility, soft towels, clean bed sheets etc. We had a delicious 3 course meal which was cooked to perfection and the staff were all very friendly and accommodating. My only complaint was we had to wait a while for our meal but it was definitely worth the wait. Breakfast was equally of good standard with freshly cooked full English and cereals, fruit, pastries etc. I would definitely recommend this place and for those people who have given bad reviews there’s no pleasing some people who complaint about a stain on the carpet or a loose tile. Get a life!
