Good Hotel Guide Review

‘An ideal place to slow down and relax.’ It is almost 40 years since Baba Hine and her late husband, Denis, took over an 18th-century coaching inn and opened their ‘graceful hotel’. The hostess remains at the helm with ‘ebullient’ son Giles, attracting a loyal following of guests who return for the ‘old-fashioned values’, ‘friendly, uniformly efficient staff’, ‘very comfortable rooms’ and ‘excellent food and wine’. ‘We don’t normally go back to the same hotel, but Corse Lawn is so reliable that we’ve returned three times.’ Even standard bedrooms are spacious, with tall windows, and walls hung with pictures; all the rooms are supplied with leaf teas, ‘proper coffee’, shortbread, fruit, fresh milk. ‘Our capacious room had a large bed and a settee; a pleasant sitting area; windows peering into the trees.’ Downstairs, the bistro lounge looks out over pond and weeping willow. Eat here or in the restaurant, where long-standing chef Martin Kinahan wins praise for such dishes as trio of Cotswold lamb; chargrilled Orkney salmon, chive beurre blanc. (‘Leave room for the interesting cheese trolley!’) (William Wood, Michael Mayer-Jones, RE Greenhill)

Guest comments

'Oh serendipity! We ate an outstanding dinner with very good and inexpensive wine from a well balanced list. Next morning the breakfast was deftly cooked. The furniture was mainly Edwardian and thirties, wonderfully quirky. Our bedroom had a large adjacent sitting room, a large bathroom, a comfortable kingsize bed and two French doors leading to a large balcony/terrace, which was above the (quiet) bar. The owner (Baba Hines) had an eagle eye on absolutely everything and the staff could not have responded better: they were friendly and attentive at all times. . ' - Brian Griffiths - September, 2017
'A gracious hotel with excellent food and attentive staff. ' - John Barnes - May, 2017
'We have stayed in many hotels, and regard this a one of the best. So reliable and comfortable that this was our third visit. ' - Robert and Janet Greenhill - September, 2016
'Our favourite watering hole. Staff is uniformly efficient and friendly, but not intrusive. Our large room had a comfortable bed, windows on three sides, large bathroom but not enough shelf space, as usual. Downstairs, the front of the house is a lounge. Off this is a pleasant bar and bistro (where the restaurant menu is available). At the other end, the restaurant is an L-shaped room with access to a terrace, serves a short interesting TdH menu and quite a long alc. A very interesting cheese trolley. Excellent service here and in the bistro. ' - LM Mayer-Jones - September, 2016
'A nice country feel despite the busy road. Upgrading of the bedrooms has not affected the ‘time-warp feel’ of the place. Its décor will not appeal to those in search of ‘designer’ style. We liked the ‘old-fashioned’ values: no piped music, leaf tea, no littles jars of jam, no packaged butter at breakfast. ‘Gilles Champier, the manager for 15 years, was always about, taking orders and serving at dinner and breakfast. ' - CR - February, 2016
