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).
