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)
