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).

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
