Good Afternoon Bill,

Thank you so much for the lovely comments with regards to the accommodation and the food. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay overall, and it would be our pleasure to welcome you again in the future.

Apologies that the Wifi and Tv Reception was troublesome during your stay - we are currently undergoing a full change of Wifi so would expect this to be complete early in the New Year.

On 15th September we got married at Bowburn Hall Hotel and it couldn’t have gone better due to this amazing venue and staff - anyone thinking about booking Bowburn needs to do it!

Since booking our wedding we’ve visited Bowburn on several occasions and have always been impressed with the venue, food and customer service. The staff at Bowburn took the stress out of planning a wedding through regular meetings and offering such good value for money for what’s included in the exclusive package.

On the wedding day Lewis was our wedding co-ordinator and was very attentive to make sure the day ran smoothly, alongside all the other staff who were always welcoming and friendly. The amount and standard of food was exceptional on the day with a wide range to choose from when planning the wedding. The weather wasn’t on our side but the venue accommodated the full day inside. Accommodation was great, especially the garden lodges which my partner and I would love to come back to stay in.

Would highly recommend Bowburn for anyone booking a wedding, we will definitely look forward to coming back regularly to visit the restaurant!

I met a friend for lunch and ordered fish and chips.
It was cold on arrival, the batter contained no fish to speak of and what there was looked like it had been cooked before and then battered.
The chips were cold and consisted of thin shards of potato skin so fried they were inedible .
The only good things were the garden oeas

The en suite shower was one of the worst I've encountered. Totally unusable due to a blocked waste which flooded the shower tray, the grouting was covered in black mould throughout and the base trim was hanging off.
You would be better off at a Travelodge which are cleaner and half the price.
My complaint got an apology but no refund.

A pleasant find when looking for somewhere to break up our journey from the south of England back to Scotland. A nice, clean room with a large comfy bed and a nice refurbed en-suite shower room. Quite a quirky dining room / conservatory area which served a limited daily menu with a comprehensive specials board till late. Food was freshly cooked and very nice. Self-service cooked & continental breakfast available a well - standard choice and again nicely cooked. Garden area outside conservatory with a small play area for children. Pleasant staff. No elevator / lift and all bedrooms are up at least one flight of stairs

I've booked this venue for our wedding next Sept.
From the very get go, Tom and Lucy were understanding, caring and considerate to our requirements. Both are very apparently superb at what they do as we left feeling very at ease and very happy with our decision.
The communication between us all has been informative and seamless.
We also sampled some sublime food at the venue and we're more than suitably impressed with the prices and the service all round
Truly a north eastern gem.

Well don't team Bowburn.
