Good Hotel Guide Review
‘We wanted old-world charm with modern facilities, and we got it – down to the cosy bar and the slightly sloping wooden floors.’ A Guide reader in 2017 found this characterful, child-friendly hotel, in the centre of the Cotswold town, ‘perfect on all levels’. Formed from an ‘interesting collection’ of buildings, the hotel has boldly styled bedrooms reached via winding staircases. The well-equipped rooms vary in size and style, with playful touches to add personality – ‘ours had a jar of Jelly Babies to greet us’. Afternoon tea is ‘taken seriously’, as is apertif hour – the bar has more than 400 gins from around the world. The relaunched restaurant is now under the direction of Dominic Chapman (formerly of Heston Blumenthal’s Hind’s Head), whose unfussy modern menu might include wild rabbit and foie gras lasagne, wild mushrooms, chervil. Blenheim Palace is a stroll away. Sister hotel Lords of the Manor is in Upper Slaughter (see main entry).
