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.

We found the staff very friendly and helpful, the accommodation was clean and very comfortable. The location is absolutely beautiful! If we ever visit again we will definitely book in at the New Inn again. We highly recommend this accommodation.

Had to cancel 2 weeks before NYE
Reviewed 2 months ago

Booked our stay for NYE in early November and I called up to make sure they are open and serving food etc. I was told they were and they had the same menu with a few specials for NYE. I got a call last night to say sorry but we are now closed on the dates you have booked but you can still stay here we just won't be serving food or drinks. Not impressed at all as it has been very difficult to find somewhere else that has availability this short notice for NYE.

Sunday Roast
Reviewed 2 months ago

We visited the New Inn for a traditional Sunday Roast following a recent recommendation.

The pub set in Coln St Aldwyns just a short drive from Cirencester is a pretty little Cotswold village.

Ambience inside the pub is lovely with everything you’d expect from a Old Cotswold Pub.

The food was tasty although lacking in gravy ( we could have asked for more) and both the beef and chicken were very nice.

Certainly up there in the top five Cotswold Sunday Lunch spots.

Comfortable and very helpful staff
Reviewed 3 months ago

Stayed for a couple of nights, for a wedding, and having seen the latest reviews, I was concerned.

We were very happy with the room, it could do with a little investment. There is no mirror in the bathroom, and the shower was too hot or too cold, but the mixer tap wouldn’t allow to get the temperature spot on. Some of the furniture was a little tired.

The bed was extremely comfortable, with great sheets.

We ate in the restaurant which was very busy, and I think was very tasty and sensibly priced. Given the room price, I think a cooked breakfast should be included, but for us this was not a big issue.

Free Wi-fi throughout which was free and reasonably fast.

Highlight was the staff, who were friendly, welcoming and helpful.

I’m sure a little investment would pay dividends, but wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again
