CUSTOMER REVIEWS.

Our centre star rating is based on customer satisfaction scores from real customers. It is based on information collated by BMW UK over the past 90 days of new car sales and aftersales service transactions, where the customers have subsequently elected to complete a satisfaction survey online or by phone. You will also see below customer comments, which are unedited.

Cotswold provide an excellent comprehensive service

Service

As above, efficient and site is well placed with easy access. Good customer relationship

Service

Really good service

Service

Fast efficient turn around

Service

The things that could have been better would have been:- Proactive contact (I phoned late on Day 1 about to set off to collect the vehicle only to be told at that time that it was not available)- No feedback on the 'other' items (rattle & SatNav)

Service

Had booked in for an MOT which should have taken 1 hour. However, this did not happen as it took 2 and a half hours.

Service

All staff are very welcoming

Service

As far as I am aware, everything was done as requested and the car was clean.

Service

Not a great experience

Service

As above

Service

Couldn't have gone smoother!

Service

As above

Service

When I arrived, there was no friendly welcome; just asked 'Name?' then told to wait as person I had to see wasn't available - but there were five other people available !

Service

The service I received was first class unfortunately I was left waiting for over an hour AFTER my car was finished before I found someone to say it was ready !!

Service

No problems.

Service

really polite, engaging and efficient, great new location

Service

Friendly staff

Service

Easy to organize

Service

Following my recent service I found that:1. The date of my next MOT had not been updated.2. Following the fitting of a new tyre the on board tyre pressure monitoring system had not been activated.3. Tyre valve dust cap was missing.

Service

It would be difficult to improve but there's always room to try!

Service

very good phone response, helpful operator during booking process, service department were expecting me, and accommodated my wait appointment early as I had arrived early (which I had not expected!)

Service

I found the whole experience from the C&D to the work carried out very reassuring that everything had been done with quality & the video I was sent from the technician Chris Redman showing the car & explaining everything that he was doing excellent

Service

All good apart from MOT couldn't be booked in. Turns out when I arrived it could....

Service

I was disappointed that the vibration through the steering was not fixed.

Service

Service was A1 as ever and got a free coffee whilst I waited.

Service

Problem resolved during a 90 min diagnostic session exceeded expectation

Service

As above

Service

I like the way you receive customers at the service department and informed of how things will be done.

Service

professional staff, who delivered a slick service.

Service

My car was in for a recall (X1, air bag on passenger side, potential software problem). I was told by BMW that the car was needed for 2 days. When I checked-in, I was told the car was only needed for 1 day. The replacement car, was not available.

Service

Excellent service

Service

Don't answer calls, get service details wrong and I have to take the car back again to solve the issue.

Service

Great

Service

from present and previous experiences.

Service

For starters, the new showroom is superb. It's a great space to look around, but also to work from during appointments. I have been in twice recently for an MOT, and then follow up work, and both times the service has been exemplary.

Service

As the above

Service

Friendly staff

Service

See previous comment

Service

I received a call to say one of the alloy wheels had a crack and needed to be replaced. Usually I receive a short inspection video from the mechanic to illustrate the problem. I received no video this time to prove this diagnosis.

Service

Excellent service from my call in the morning , taxi to an urgent appointment, hire care by early afternoon

Service

Excellent service

Service

Helpful staff and well looked after during my visit to service centre and showroom

Service

Professional unit

Service

A good job done, also quicker than expected and a pleasant area inside to relax, read a paper and enjoy a coffee and pastry.

Service

First experience at the new facility, from what I experienced in Gloucester the customer service has gone downhill.

Service

Email already sent explaining issues

Service

Good. Matched price for tyres

Service

As above but lack of expected quote for bodywork at end of service reduces score slightly.

Service

Cheltenham service check in is easy & efficient. The waiting area & hospitality offered are exceptional.

Service

They left a bungie cord around my steering rack, which was extremely dangerous

Service

Quality communication

Service

I brought my car in to have the oil, and particulates filter, changed. When I asked why it was taking so long, I don't need to be told that; "the oil is hot!", I also didn't need tread depth measurements an other tests carried out.

Service

Rediculous £200+ extra cost of wheel alignment I expected would be included with my 4 new tyres with a quote that included fitting!

Service

Good service and loan car

Service

No issues

Service

A rear reflector fell off my brand new vehicle. The first service representative I dealt with clearly thought I was trying to mislead him in some way which made me feel quite uncomfortable. The issue was eventually resolved, but it took two visits.

Service

Have removed one start because was initially told I needed a new switch but on follow up visit the switch was instead repaired, so perhaps this could have been sorted on original visit.

Service

Your guy are good and do their best but it seems you are so busy, too busy to cope.

Service

See the above answer; its a totally different experience to what one received when visiting Cotswold Gloucester; thankfully, some of the Gloucester sales team are still with the company which does give some comfort

Service

Same as above

Service

Dealt with a problem at short notice whilst I was away from home

Service

Service with a smile, a free coffee and kept up to date with progress. When advised the car would need to remain in overnight whilst a part was obtained there was no quibble about keeping the courtesy car for an extra day.

Service

There was a mix up with a promised lift home when I dropped my car off. My home is now greater than 5 miles from the centre. When I was a customer of Cotswold Gloucester this wasn't a problem. This said I was given a lift but it wasn't planned.

Service

The appointment was made for 8.00 am although afterwards was told it was 8.15 am but didn't leave until 10.30 am for basic brake fluid service and general check up even though they knew I was waiting!!!!

Service

Everything met expectation.

Service

personal attention on the day. I had a call advisingmy car would be ready 4pm. Being a new dealership I arrivd early so we could have a look around. Again the service area had a lack of anyone obvious to speak with. I got my car back after 5pm

Service

The knowledge that everything required for the car is done very efficiently. Being kept fully up to date as to the length of time it would take to complete, and enjoying an excellent coffee and being able to view the new showroom.

Service

Can't find a fault.

Service

The Greeting in Reception and the whole process was excellent.

Service

A video from the technician was a great touch advising me that all was OK with the under floor & brake discs.

Service

MOT test only

Service

All work done on time with good communication.

Service

Great service experience. Friendly staff. The staff always ready to answer any questions. Knowledgeable and efficient to sort out my car problems.

Service

As above

Service

Exceptional and personalised service as always.

Service

I felt I was well looked after and the Sales Advisor offered good advice without trying to sell products I didn't want

Service

Slightly annoying that the car was returned with the BMW badge from the hub cap in the car (next to the gear stick) not on the wheel.A part was required which meant the car had to stay an extra 24 hours but fortunately we didn't need it back immedi

Service

all good

Service

The service advisor was very polite and helpful

Service

The work required was clearly explained, the technician valued my input then the appointment courtesy car when work was carried out, was efficient, timely and with no hidden costs. Availabilty of refreshments was well received.

Service

Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the Service Desk receptionist but they were friendly, offered great advice / assistance and a pleasure to do business with.

Service

As above.BMW is a quality car manufacturer, but the cost of the first service and the problems with investigating the warning lights fault, have seriously "dented" my trust.

Service

Valeting of vehicle not completed

Service

Everything was smooth and the service was great.

Service

The excellent overall service and communication was let down at the end; the handbrake was applied so hard on returning the vehicle in our driveway, my wife was unable to move the car for two hours, and missed urgent appointments.

Service

n/a

Service

Fantastic customer service, always keeping you in the loop

Service

Andrew McAdam and the team in servicing always make me feel like a valued customer

Service

As above

Service

Mr Hatton looked after me very well and doing his best to sort things out.

Service

The new premises offer excellent facilities and customer care was impressive. The video with a summary of condition on the underside of the vehicle was useful, reassuring and innovative.

Service

It seems a good job has been done.

Service

This would have been 5 stars however, on the journey home I realised that my dash camera had been subtly unplugged (so the work would not be recorded), and it had not been plugged back in.

Service

superb facilities with staff service to match

Service

First class customer service from all staff

Service

The new place is slick. However to wait a while an both drop off and collection.

Service

See above

Service

Great parking, it was raining the day i turned up so the underground parking was a real bonus. Nicely greeted when I walked in, helped myself to a coffee, got checked in and picked up car on time

Service

Great care from start to finish

Service

I was dealt with quickly and efficiently

Service

Quality service

Service

I booked my car in for a repair and for servicing. My priority was to get a fault resolved and was over 1000 miles before I needed a service. There were 2 engine noises, the more significant noise I had concerns over is still not resolved.More to add

Service

Great facilities, friendly staff, quick turnaround and minimal fuss

Service

Friendly and costomer focus service staff

Service

We were on holiday on the area. The car was accepted, and booked in at short notice. The six-hour waiting experience was pretty painless! And the eventual bill was fair. Everything was explained properly by Craig and we were back on the road again.

Service

I don't think the service entrance is good at the bottom of the escalators and the coffee area isn't big enough, welcoming or anywhere near as comfortable as the old service area

Service

Tyres needed replacing and they blatantly over quoted.Service very expensive.

Service

A1 service from start to finish.

Service

As above, and first class new centre

Service

See above

Service

Very efficient, professional

Service

Normally the valet is first class, this time I was disappointed. The interior windows had not been cleaned.

Service

Everyone involved that I spoke to seemed to project the importance of customer care. Quality that is known and expected in the vehicles was reflected in the appearance and performance of the personnel.

Service

I was taken to work as arranged and also collected from my work place and driven back to the garage to collect my car which was ready for me to drive on my arrival.

Service

It was first class, I was met by a knowledgeable service manager, who was keen to listen and help. He ensured that not only was the car topped up with oil, it was inspected before doing so to ensure nothing untoward.

Service

i WAS VERY HAPPY WITH THE SERVICE PROVIDED IN REPLACING MY CARS WING MIRROR INDICATOR, HOWEVER I WAS NOT VERY HAPPY WITH THE FACT THAT IT WAS NOT COVERED UNDER MY CARS USED CAR WARRANTY.

Service

I came away happy

Service

No problems of any sort

Service

Unusual to say this, but the chap fitting 2 new tyres got one on the wrong way round. Having put it right 2 days later when I spotted it, he left the locking wheel nut in his pocket! We all make mistakes, but management need to stay awake here.

Service

My car was serviced on time and the coffee was excellent.

Service

A1 for service

Service

I don't really know what was done - I'm surprised that there was no detailed feedback. I was told (as an afterthought) that there was a nail in a tyre but on close inspection at my local garage and tyre dealer this turned out to be an embedded stone.

Service

Until the rattle gets sorted that I reported under warranty but didn't get looked at because it went away for a while, I won't be fully satisfied. I still feel that it is a 'get the car in and get it out quick' approach.

Service

Picking the car up made this answer what it is!

Service

Very good service and willing to negotiate

Service

See above answers

Service

My car was thoroughly checked over and I can always guarrantee that it has been done to the highest standard by the service department

Service

Helpful and professional staff; great premises with convenient drive in service access; car ready promptly and has never been so clean!!

Service

See comments above.

Service

good customer service on time and accurate bill info

Service

See 1

Service

I had arranged for a body shop technician to check a couple of dinks on the car whilst it was in for service. He didn't get to it in the time. The service reception guy took some photos to facilitate things but have heard nothing.

Service

Extremely efficient and helpful.

Service

Home collection/delivery very convenient. Service seemed to improve car smoothness.

Service

The fault was not found told I would need to book 3 weeks in advance to road test with rechnician really!! And my car was dirty after the road test which they found no fault!! Plus other reasons

Service

Even though the news was bad I.e expensive repairs I was not pressured in to anything and it was all explained clearly to me and options given.

Service

All worked as planned

Service

Good efficient work

Service

Staff, as always, are very pleasant. Only complaint would be that the car was left with an awful lot of smears from its 'clean'. Seemed a bit rushed.

Service

Good service but took an hour longer than expected.

Service

Although only having the first service on the car, we were looked after well.

Service

Efficient service. Lift (both ways) was very helpful and prompt.

Service

New premises very impressive.Everything was carried out as described by your staff when leaving my vehicle

Service

Could not fault.

Service

Good pre service communication and welcoming waiting area

Service

A quality encounter with a team at Cotswold who know you, know your car and go out of their way to be helpful and attentive. Each time I come away feeling very "looked after". Courtesy drinks/refreshments are trivial but def add to the experience.

Service

Cotswold BMW provide an excellent service, always with a warm welcome and friendly faces.

Service

Booking process and reminders all good. Brake pads replaced, but brake squeal is still evident, hence the slight mark down.

Service

Helpful friendly staff, fantastic surroundings in which to wait whilst the work is being done

Service

See above

Service

Friendly and they always accommodate.

Service

Courteous and helpful staff. Great facilities. Car ready at the promised time.

Service

We have always been treated fairly and honestly by the service personnel, particularly by Andrew McAdam.He has always gone above and beyond for us! Thankyou Andrew!

Service

as above

Service

Car was fixed - however they mentioned a couple of things for me to buy and replace myself. Would've appreciated the option for them to do it for me there and then for a extra charge.

Service

Left auto door locking on - can't turn it offLet down with lift to town

Service

I was waiting on the premises whilst my work was carried out and because I have a dash cam fitted, I know that I could have had my car back at least an hour earlier than it was presented to me. It was just sat waiting in the car park.

Service

It would have been good to know in advance that the lift offered involved dropping off 2 other individuals, making a 15 minute commute take nearly an hour. Next time I will use the collection from my place of work.

Service

Kept informed, barista was great

Service

The reason for that low score is that when I bought the car there was a scratch on the passenger front door, there are reasons why I did not put it in earlier for this to be done, Paul Frith was really helpful. But the scratch is still there not done

Service

Pleas see answer to question 1.

Service

so helpful and tuned my mobile phone into the car, and explained how the were doing it.

Service

same again

Service

Car was cleaned but windows badly smeared when car collected

Service

Quick booking, early appt, good booking in, collection not as slick bit disorganised - i dont need to wait and see the same guy to pay and collect as i saw booking in i just want to pay and get home!!!

Service

An issue involving the radio losing signal was quickly rectified when they investigated it further. They found out the back window had a connection fault so replaced the window. Very happy with how concern was dealt with.

Service

Detailed explanation of what had been done during the service. Advice that the tyres need changing soon, with a quote for the work.

Service

Communication was very good.They simply delivered what was promised.

Service

Very good service from start to finish. 5* dealer

Service

See above

Service

For an oil service from start to finish it took 2 hours! Nice to have free coffee and pastry though.

Service

please see my above answer for first question. However in brief the centre lost my car, did not provide me with free health check paperwork. Refused the call me back, promised to e msil me report which took three days

Service

I have dealt with Calvin for at least 5 years.He knows how I like to understand what has gone wrong with a vehicle and why.Even today I have had a possible problem with a clutch switch and he has fitted me in next Tuesday to fix.

Service

Because it was flawless

Service

MOT CARRIED OUT PROMPTLY AND AT COMPETITIVE PRICE

Service

Tyre not correctly inflated. Had to leave Cotswold and go to local garage and inflate the tyre!

Service

Great service although car came back with oil level high on computer so would have been better if they had checked this as known fault.

Service

The car is displaying that a service is due in 3200 miles which is wrong. I haven't contacted the garage about this yet as been too busy but obviously needs rectification

Service

Great, dealt very well with company car lease company

Service

1st class

Service

I had to wait for my allocated Service Advisor both on drop off and collection. At drop off after waiting 10 minutes I was seen by another Service Advisor. I feel this was unacceptable due to 6 other staff members were just chatting to each other.

Service

Work diagnosed and carried out within a prompt timescale.

Service

Completely satisfied as work was carried out exactly as specified.

Service

see above

Service

Eleri Watkin (BMW Cheltenham) went the extra mile to help the sale go through and supported me every step of the way.

Service

A bit overwhelmed after our BMW Cheltenham experiencesThe service agent Calvin was extremely helpful and went out of his way to give us a tour around the showroom

Service

Lovely new centre, friendly staff.

Service

as stated above the staff were all very courteous and helpful. They all seemed to share in the customer experience. It wasn't just down to the person serving coffee to clear the cups, sales reps and others seemed to scope and clean the area

Service

See above

Service

My car needs to go back as the work carried out is inferior

Service

The work was done as expected, however, the valet has left several polished aluminium trim pieces with wax/ detergent stains which I cannot remove.

Service

Fixed the issue with my car quickly. Service could have been quicker in drop off and collection

Service

Apart from the car being covered in water marks after a wash and the windows inside all grubby, everything was excellent

Service

I trust them. When they find a problem, a seized bleed nipple on a caliper, they keep me informed and give me options. And when the replacement caliper from BMW turns out to be the wrong colour (shame BMW) they stop and ask me what I want to do.

Service

no comment

Service

Andrew McCadam is very knowledgeable of the product and always makes the effort to ensure our service experience goes well. Although now not as convenient, the new Garage is also a pleasure to visit.

Service

Because after the service I always feel safe in the knowledge the car is fully checked and satisfactory.

Service

The service team were all very helpful, I was well looked after by all staff

Service

The new showroom didn't have quite that personal touch that the Gloucester one did. It was a bit flash and the gentlemen who dealt with me was good but not as good a little bit factual and not enough personal

Service

The work that was carried out rectified my problem with the car

Service

I would just say as above. I was very happy. Also very nice showroom and a pleasure to be there. I almost asked for a job

Service

You seem to have dealt with the intermittent fault I reported to you.

Service

No reason not to.

Service

See above. Nothing to gripe about!

Service

Very friendly staff and kept me informed.

Service

The new BMW centre is very much a smooth operation, and the staff is very pleasant. I'm not happy with the decision made by staff to categorise the TWO buckled rear wheels as wear and tear, and quote me almost £1,500 to replace them.

Service

The staff are great but as is often the case, you collect the car with the seat & mirrors having been moved and the radio tuned to a different station. Why do they do this?

Service

I took my X5 into BMW after loosing a key, we did not know if they key had been stolen or lost so were very concerned. BMW booked the car in for the old keys to be programmed out and new ones supplied. Please call to discuss 07897 106442

Service

I was kept in contact about what was happening at every stage and enjoyed the experience of picking up my car.

Sales

The experience at Cotswold Cheltenham BMW has been excellent. From the initial online enquiry in June to the final collection of the lovely new BMW on the 1st September the experience has exceeded my expectations.

Sales

All the staff that i dealt with during the whole process was very welcoming and helpful, which made everything run smoothly. And the centre itself is fantastic and such a nice environment.

Sales

Did all I could ask for. Made experience enjoyable.

Sales

As detailed above, the experience was very good

Sales

Andrew Cresswell, my salesman, explained everything clearly, arranged a demo so that I was completely happy with what I was purchasing. This was important as I had made a mistake earlier in the year with purchasing a different make of car.

Sales

Attentive service

Sales

Could not fault anything refreshments available and we were constantly updated of progress

Sales

see above!

Sales

As said above, completely satisfied with the whole experience. Gareth our salesman was extremely helpful and accommodating.

Sales

Provided with one best price, no haggling, as requested. Regular progress reports during manufacture.

Sales

Amazing service, couldn't fault anything. Eleri was absolutely amazing :)

Sales

Our car arrived on time and we were treated very well.

Sales

Everything was well communicated and timely

Sales

As above. The staff worked well together (sales/finance/reception).

Sales

Each time we have leased a car we have been treated like royalty!

Sales

Salesman understood our requirements and constraints, and worked to get us a car within those parameters.

Sales

Everything went very smoothly and the young salesman did an excellent job. Even better the car arrived earlier tha expected.

Sales

I have been impressed with the professional way in which the transaction has been conducted by Eleri Watkin with whom I was able to communicate my requirements and in return receive a most helpful and knowledgeable response to the questions I posed

Sales

same as above

Sales

Easy sales process, friendly salesman and I didn't feel pressured about making a decision.When we selected the car, we knew it was the right car and were comfortable with its affordability.

Sales

Professional staff and great experience

Sales

Everything was so easy and prompt

Sales

Great service and the complimentary drinks and food always help. Gareth helped us every step of the way and on the handover was maticulous in ensuring my wife knew everything about her new car. Nothing was too much trouble for Gareth.

Sales

The new Cotswold BMW Centre is gorgeous, was treated brilliantly at all times and the free coffee & pastries is an extra bonus!

Sales

The overall experience 'end-to-end' was excellent. It was a pleasure dealing with Eleri Watkin at Cotswold Cheltenham. She has great customer care in explaining the purchasing process, build time table and the functionality of the car on delivery.

Sales

Top draw from start to finish

Sales

Very helpful team and great new building in Cheltenham

Sales

Support throughout the process was very good. All my questions where answered and the whole process was as flexible as I needed it to be.

Sales

It worked out but would have welcomed more information of the deal proposed up front

Sales

refer to point 1

Sales

Excellent personal service, made to feel a valued customer
