Good Hotel Guide Review
On fine days, guests eat and drink alfresco in front of this 15th-century inn, watched over by two towering clipped yews. Behind the ‘antique facade’, ‘designer look’ meets ‘olde-worlde charm’. The double-height Jockey Bar has ‘a large fireplace, rugs on a wood floor’, comfy seating, a wall of Lisa Bliss teal stags’ head wallpaper. Part of Cotswold Inns and Hotels, the Broadway, ‘while friendly and personal, clearly has professionally trained management’. Equestrian-themed bedrooms are each named after a famous horse – a nod to Cheltenham races. A room approached via ‘creaky stairs’ and a minstrels’ gallery above the bar had ‘dashing feature fabrics’, chocolate and cream decor, lattice casements, a ‘rather poky’ bathroom, all ‘smart, well thought out’ rather than luxurious. One reader, visiting for a funeral reception this year, found his ‘spirits lifted’ by the hotel’s ‘terrific savoury pastries’. For more substantial fare, don the nosebag for Eric Worger’s imaginative dishes in Tattersall’s Brasserie. Maybe sea bass, miso-glazed carrots, king oyster mushroom, langoustine tortellini and bisque. Next morning, breakfast on eggs Royale with smoked salmon before romping home. (IB)
