Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Here’s a taste of Cotswold heritage: mullioned windows, beamed ceilings, flagstone floors, the sweet smell of wood smoke.’ Guide inspectors this year were impressed by this ‘well-managed hotel with a wonderful atmosphere’. ‘Full marks, too, for the attentive staff.’ Part of the small Cotswold Inns and Hotels group, the 18th-century inn has a series of log fire-warmed lounges that are just the spot for board games, afternoon teas and pre-dinner drinks. Modern, country-style bedrooms are decorated with antique furnishings. ‘Our well-proportioned ground-floor room had striking wallpaper, a huge bed, a compact bathroom. A capsule coffee machine and home-made cookies had been supplied; shame about the captive hangers. The windows faced a pavement so we had to draw the curtains – fine in November, but I’d ask to be put upstairs in the summer.’ Eat informally in the walled garden, lounges or bar; in the restaurant, ‘beautifully presented’ modern dishes might include ‘stand-out sea bream’ and ‘a memorable lobster ravioli’. At breakfast: freshly squeezed orange and grapefruit juices, a tasty fruit compote, ‘excellent bacon and sausage’. (Mary Coles, and others)

Guest comments

'A thoroughaly enjoyable Christmas stay. Excellent food and service. Nice log fires. As you would expect of such a very old building it is comfortable rather than stylish. ' - Bill & Patsy Bennett - December, 2011
'The surroundings are beautiful. The hotel is well appointed, the welcome friendly and efficient. Our bedroom, The Priory, on the side of the building was pleasant, but its bathroom was dated and in need of refurbishment. Our package included one meal in the restaurant. I thought it not value for money, though it was cooked and presented well. Maybe I am out of date with modern food but the Cod/chorizo main course was not enough to satisfy hunger. We found the bar meals better and less expensive. Breakfast was very good. The staff were always helpful but there were not enough of them, so there could be long waits. ' - Jennifer Davis - April, 2010
