Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Stylish but informal, fun and relaxing – a grand job overall.’ In a south Cotswold village that spills down a hillside in the Slad valley, this altered and extended late-Palladian mansion has found ‘a new lease of life’ within the Calcot Hotels group. ‘It’s a splendid place that will appeal to all ages,’ Guide inspectors said. ‘Tasteful and contemporary’, it has ‘lovely sitting rooms’ with log fires and magazines, a ‘stunning bar’ (with a ‘charismatic barman’), and a ‘small, beautiful garden with pleasant terraces’. ‘Luxurious bedrooms’ are ‘cleverly designed’, and have a ‘well-equipped bathroom’. ‘We loved our semi-circular room, which had four windows giving village and valley views. A sitting area had armchairs, a coffee table and up-to-date glossy magazines – a good touch.’ Dine in the ‘low-key yet sophisticated restaurant’, or alfresco in the loggia – inside or out, chef Michael Bedford’s cooking is ‘fabulous’. Among his ‘imaginative dishes’, perhaps: Wye valley asparagus, Parmesan shortbread, bacon-and-egg ice cream. In the morning, choose from an ‘excellent buffet’ and a ‘wide-ranging cooked menu’ (kippers, omelettes, ‘the Full Elvis’). (P and JT, Jonathan Gerber)

Guest comments

'A hotel of a very high standard. The decor is tasteful. Two lovely sitting rooms, each with log fire. The small,beautiful garden has a lovely terrace. Our bedrooms were luxurious; beds especially comfy. The sophisticated restaurant is ideal for romantic dinners or a group. The stunning bar has a charismatic if somewhat eccentric barman, Frank. For walkers there are complimentary welly boots. All the staff were so friendly and very professional. ' - Jonathan Gerber - December, 2016
