Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Twin sentinel clipped yews’ stand at the entrance of this 15th-century hotel, part of the Cotswolds Inns and Hotels group. It is ‘friendly and personal’, says a Guide inspector, ‘but with clearly professionally trained management’. An equestrian theme in bedrooms is inspired by the proximity of Cheltenham. Our room, Golden Miller (five times Gold Cup winner in the 1930s), was light and relaxing, with a raftered ceiling, latticed casements, horsey-print headboard and cushions.’ The small bathroom had Molton Brown toiletries; the washbasin, with capricious taps, was in the bedroom. There are larger rooms too: Desert Orchid has a four-poster, wallpaper imitating book-lined shelves. Light meals are served in the double-height Jockey bar, with ‘a sort of minstrels’ gallery arrangement’, ‘bespoke wallpaper of stags’ heads’, an open fireplace, tasteful seating. The conservatory-style Tattersalls Brasserie has ‘voguish decor’ (unfussy neutrals, pendant lights) and serves ‘modern, fairly elaborate’ dishes, including lamb rump roasted with fennel seed, burnt aubergine, black garlic, braised leeks, lentils, cumin. Breakfast delivers smoked salmon; buttermilk pancakes with bacon; crushed avocado on granary sourdough.
