Good Hotel Guide Review
‘What a setting!’ On the banks of the River Coln, a busy former 17th-century coaching inn (Cotswold Inns and Hotels), in a quaint village William Morris described as the most beautiful in England. Rolling meadow views pour into light, country-style bedrooms supplied with high-quality toiletries and a coffee machine. The pretty garden’s cottage suites (one with a hot tub) are ideal for larger groups. Gastropub fare is served in the bar and courtyard; modern European cooking in the brasserie, perhaps the hotel speciality: poached Bibury trout. Breakfast brings freshly squeezed juice, home-made marmalade, local organic preserves. Across the lane, a trickling stream, summer house, deckchairs in the hotel’s delightful riverside gardens.
