Good Hotel Guide Review

Visitors flock to the peaceful banks of the River Coln – home to swans and to this busy 17th-century former coaching inn (Cotswold Inns and Hotels). William Morris famously called Bibury the most beautiful English village, and rolling meadow views pour into well-equipped bedrooms, decorated in a light country style, and supplied with high-quality toiletries and a capsule coffee machine. The pretty garden’s cottage suites are ideal for larger groups. There’s decent gastropub fare served in the bar and courtyard, and modern European cooking in the brasserie, perhaps the hotel speciality: poached Bibury trout, prawn ravioli, fennel, baby spinach, bisque. Breakfast brings freshly squeezed juice, home-made marmalade, local organic preserves.
