Good Hotel Guide Review

In ‘attractive’ gardens, ‘just as fetching in winter frost as in the spring’, this honey-stoned former rectory welcomes guests into plush luxury (with, some visitors point out, a price tag to match). Take tea and ‘scrumptious’ cakes in ‘grand old English style’ in the ‘comfortable’ lounges; the panelled bar is ‘just the place for cocktails and excellent canapés’. ‘We were looked after beautifully,’ say Guide readers this year. Michael Obray is the new manager; the staff are ‘efficient, smiling’, ‘wonderfully kind’. ‘I felt a little weak on arrival, and they brought me home-made biscuits in the room.’ Bedrooms – some cosy, others more generous – are individually furnished, and look out over lawns, Cotswold hills or the village. Careful selection is advised: guests this year found theirs dim, with a difficult bathroom. The restaurant, where Michelin-starred dinners include a ‘spectacular’ tasting menu, has ‘crisp linens and service to match’. (F and IW, Sophie Harrowes, and others)

Guest comments

'A lovely hotel. The gardens are beautiful. Croquet on the lawn is a must do activity. The food is excellent. We ended up having a tasting menu one evening which we hadn't expected but it was very good. Our room was fairly small. It's an expensive hotel and they insist on you staying for two nights at the weekend. The staff were very pleasant. ' - RW - June, 2016
'When you walk from the car park through the beds hedged in by neatly cropped box, the quality and ambience of the hotel immediately becomes self-evident. Witts, our large room in the main building, had a splendid view from the window seats over the gardens. The fireside in the panelled bar is just the place for a cocktail. In the extensive dining room, well-spaced tables are elegantly set; meals are served by attentive waiting staff. We enjoyed the one-Michelin-star cooking. Breakfast had a comprehensive cold buffet, and a good cooked breakfast. ' - Francine and Ian Walsh - February, 2015
