Good Hotel Guide Review

Soak up the country calm on the banks of the River Coln, where stands this stylishly updated 17th-century former coaching inn (Cotswold Inns and Hotels). Perhaps the most beautiful part of England – according to William Morris – it’s an ideal setting for gentle rustic pursuits: gazing over gardens and meadows, bird spotting, taking afternoon tea by the river, perhaps a spot of fishing at the local trout farm. Well-appointed bedrooms, some ideal for a family, may have a roll-top bath or four-poster bed; standard amenities include high-quality toiletries and a capsule coffee machine. Cottage suites, a short walk from the inn, have a sitting room and a private garden. Eat modern European dishes in the brasserie; dine alfresco in fine weather.
