More Room Types

The Mercure Gloucester, Bowden Hall Hotel is an impressive Georgian country house hotel in 12 acres of parkland close to the Cotswolds.

The property is three miles from the centre of Gloucester, with its rejuvenated docks, antique markets, the Gloucester Guildhall theatre, Gloucester Cathedral and Gloucester Folk Museum.

It is within easy reach of some of the Cotswolds' prettiest villages. The Painswick Rococo Gardens are a 10-minute drive away, and the chocolate-box villages of Bourton-on-the-Water, and Upper and Lower Slaughter are around 30 minutes by car.

The 17th-century Grade-II listed building is surrounded by landscaped lawns, a lake and terraces, and there are plenty of grounds to explore and outdoor spots in which to relax in warmer weather. There is also an elegant bar and lounge where you can have a drink or afternoon tea while looking out over the gardens through floor-to-ceiling windows. The hotel's Dearmans Restaurant serves dishes made using locally sourced ingredients.

The hotel's 72 bedrooms offer free high speed Wi-Fi. Upgrade to a Privilege or Superior Room to all receive complimentary unlimited movies, a Nespresso coffee machine, a free newspaper, and a cosy robe and slippers. Some Superior Rooms offer lake views.
