Good Hotel Guide Review

The best of old-world charm and modern facilities’, this child-friendly hotel in a Cotswolds market town near Blenheim Palace has bags of personality. The cosy bar (popular with locals) is ‘just the place to unwind’, perhaps with one of its collection of more than 400 gins – a Guinness world record). Up the winding staircases, ‘spotless’ bedrooms have a comfortable bed, ‘playful decor’, bright splashes of colour, quirky touches (a jar of Jelly Babies, a sloping wooden floor). In the busy restaurant, with its wood panels and vibrant statement carpet, head chef ‘Wolf’ Chodurski serves innovative country-style dishes, perhaps lasagne of wild rabbit, foraged mushrooms, chervil. ‘Perfect on all levels.’ Sister hotel Lords of the Manor is in Upper Slaughter (see main entry).

Guest comments

'We chose The Feathers because we wanted old-world charm with modern facilities, and a location right near Blenheim Palace. It was perfect on all levels - right down to the slightly sloping wooden floors (old-world charm!) to the cosy bar to unwind. Clean, child-friendly, charming! ' - - October, 2016
'Still a great place to stay, quaint and atmospheric as ever, with many locals passing through. Excellent welcome at Reception, and bags carried up the quirky old staircase. The bedroom on the second floor was not large but very comfortable, with a view over the High Street. Everything very clean. Bathroom small, but adequate. The excellent Mary still presides benevolently as manageress, and Michael the long-time waiter is as eficient as ever. In fact all the staff are good and friendly. We had a delicious dinner in Fuggles Brasserie, which was as usual very busy, which adds to the good atmosphere. Breakfast was cheerfully served and had good choice. Still a great place to stay, but the Leisure Centre at the back needs a bit of refreshing and updating. ' - Roland Cassam - June, 2011
