Good Hotel Guide Review

‘You can hear the sounds of birds all around’ this converted 14th-century farmhouse. It stands in ‘lovely, manicured grounds’ looking out over Gloucestershire hills. ‘Light, bright and informal, classy without being posh, this is a cheerful, family-friendly spot with commendable, happy-making facilities and an easy atmosphere,’ say Guide inspectors in 2017, dipping their hand into the ‘huge jar of sweets’ at reception. Modern rustic bedrooms are ‘beautifully furnished, with plenty of lovely touches – a jug of water by the bed; good teas; excellent, bendy night lights’. (Choose wisely – an otherwise comfortable room overlooking the car park wasn’t completely pleasing.) ‘The super-comfy parental bed in our family suite afforded a brilliant night’s sleep, but younger children might have better luck than my 14-year-old – his feet hung off the end of his bed.’ At mealtimes, young and old are well catered for in the conservatory restaurant, where the goose-fat chips are ‘a must’. There are ‘peaceful lounges’ and ‘newspapers galore’, but tuck in to a ‘very good breakfast’ then head out to explore – perhaps borrowing a bicycle for a countryside ride. Calcot Manor is also a member of Pride of Britain hotels.

Guest comments

''Top of the tree": ideal for both adults and children. Sensitively restored Costwold stone buildings grouped around well-maintained gardens. The hotel never seemed crowded as there are many secluded areas. Children were happy in the Playzone and the Mez,. Meanwhile adults could unwind in the excellent spa. (Children are allowed in to swim at appointed times.)The food, and the attention to detail were impressive. ' - Jane and Martin Bailey - July, 2018
'You can hear the sounds of birds all around. Quiet surroundings, lovely manicured grounds. Cosy and intimate. Clean, modern country style. Cheerful greeting. Family-friendly suite; super-comfortable bed for adults. Nice view. Large, modern bathroom. Very modern, peaceful spa but indoor pool has restrictive hours for children; outdoor pool in summer - available to them all day. Modern, informal restaurant - staff pro-active and cheerful; plenty of choice on menu. ' - RF - May, 2017
'Our deluxe room was big and comfortable but it was on the ground floor overlooking the car park. It was quiet and well lit. We ate in all three nights. Snipe, teal and grouse were first class. It is a popular venue for families with small children and the staff were efficient and friendly and coped well with the challenge. ' - Peter Anderson - October, 2016
