Good Hotel Guide Review
Here is a setting that elicits admiring exclamation: green creepers climbing up old stone, this stylishly updated 17th-century coaching inn stands on the banks of the River Coln, in a village William Morris described as the most beautiful in England. Country-style bedrooms have views of river, village or courtyard; cottage suites in the pretty garden are ideal for larger groups. There’s a choice of dining areas: gastropub fare is served in the dog-friendly bar and courtyard; the brasserie has modern European cooking, perhaps Bibury trout. In clement weather, find a spot for sunning in the riverside garden across the lane. Part of the Fuller’s portfolio; see also Bay Tree Hotel, Burford (Shortlist entry).
