The Lowdown

The New Inn at Coln St Aldwyn is a beautiful 16th-century retreat in a peaceful corner of the Cotswolds, ideally placed for visits to Oxford, Cheltenham and Gloucester. Having recently undergone a major renovation, the pretty building has been given a modern revamp, whilst maintaining its quirky charm and character. With a multi AA Rosette-awarded chef at the helm of its restaurant, and an idyllic country village setting, this hotel is perfect for anyone looking to slow things down for a day or two.
Coln St Aldwyn in Gloucester was ranked the seventh most desirable village in the country by Country Life magazine. With easy access to Cirencester, Cheltenham, Stow-on-the-Wold and the M5, the village boasts a central location, but fully benefits from the breathtaking beauty of the Cotswolds – officially designated an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with miles of lovely walks and stunning natural views.

One of the best hotels in the Cotswolds

An amazing Inn that we stayed in for a couple of nights - beautiful room and huge size, plenty of space! Great to see local staff being hired who were unbelievably welcoming and made sure we had a great stay.
Perfect for a relaxing stay and to use as a base to explore the cotswolds.
If you're looking for more "buzz" in the evening, get a cab to Cirencester for £20ish and then head back late at night to your relaxing, quiet Inn!

Weekend Break

Lovely setting, friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. The chef very kindly produced delicious sandwiches after their kitchen was closed, we had arrived late after an 11 hour long haul flight and a 2 hour drive from Heathrow. Our rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Super bathrooms. Beautiful country walks.

evening meal

Such a disappointment all said, heard this place had a good reputation once upon a time...struggling to see why now. Average food for the prices, lacking atmosphere / ambiance. The manager 'Dominic?' was simply rude and arrogant, it's a good venue but regardless of the revamp, I'd recommend driving to 'The Stump' @ Fosse Cross or 'The Swan' in Bibary where there's such a nicer atmosphere!! 4/10...rather have a McDonalds!!
