The room is decent sized with a comfortable bed and good bathroom. It is about a 10 minute walk into town which provides a little separation form the noise and crowds of town but...

Just spent the weekend at Bowen house for my 60th birthday and had a lovely time. Really good breakfast and the owners were lovely. We had the double superior room with king size bed, very comfortable. Just a short walk into city and close to lots of lovely bars and restaurants.

We have stayed here before and were very impressed so returned this week. The rooms have all been renovated and are now absolutely gorgeous. The comfy chairs and flat screen T.V were great additions. Diane and Peter made us very welcome and breakfast was yummy. Will be returning soon.

Bowen House is a complete delight to the senses. the rooms are modern and decorated to a high standard. The whole ambience is warm, friendly and inviting. The breakfast is beautifully served using fine quality produce. The finishing touches and little luxuries make your experience that little bit more special. Delightful !
