A revamped 19th-century townhouse with a handsome stone façade, the Cotswold House Hotel is as charming as its location in Chipping Campden, an ancient market town lined with traditional inns, afternoon tea shops and independent boutiques. The lobby features comfy armchairs and a crackling fire, and a grand spiral staircase leads up to 28 guestrooms that combine rustic touches (beam ceilings, nooks and crannies) and a contemporary color scheme of deep purples and mustard-yellows. They all feature swank Bang & Olufsen TVs, tea- and coffeemaking facilities and Ren toiletries. A beautiful garden separates the hotel from the award-winning spa, which is located in a converted coach house and features a light-flooded hydrotherapy lap pool. The Grill restaurant is a laid-back all-day dining room that serves dishes made from locally sourced ingredients and a traditional afternoon tea loaded with scones and clotted cream.
In the Area
A medieval wool town in the heart of the Cotswolds, Chipping Campden is one of the U.K.’s prettiest spots. Stroll along the high street to see houses dating from the 14th century and pop into the Eight Bells for a local ale, Badgers Hall for a spot of afternoon tea and Orchard Layne for gifts and trinkets. Grab a pair of hiking boots and explore the glorious surrounding countryside. Follow the Cotswold Way, a 100-mile trail that runs the length of the Cotswold Escarpment. It’s a 40-minute drive to the Georgian spa town of Cheltenham, and you can reach the historic city of Oxford in around an hour.
How to Get There
Cotswold house hotel and spa is a wonderful retreat. Set in the idyllic town of Chipping Camden . The rooms and service are excellent and the Fig restaurant serves amazing food and wine. The spa is an added bonus although quite small. Excellent for a weekend escape
Stayed overnight with my wife as part of a Christmas gift given to us last year by relatives and i will certainly be raising the budget for them this year.
The hotel is ideally placed on the main street in the very nice village with a number of coffee shops, delis etc and the hotel has its own car park to the rear of the building.
Upon arrival, the gentleman receptionist was exceptionally helpful, showed us to our room, went through the facilities and set the very high standard of service that continued throughout our stay.
Our room itself was very pleasant overlooking the rear of the property with a large bathroom and extras such as water, juice and cookies.
The hotel itself has a very nice bar which is a good size and offers a more relaxed eating experience if you prefer. There is a good selection of drinks with a special gin meal to tempt you and we stopped for a pre-dinner drink and study the menu which the bar staff where very happy to fetch and explain
We stayed on a dinner bed and breakfast basis and dinner was served the formal dining room which again is a very nice inmate place to be, tasteful and a very pleasant place to eat
Upon arrival to the restaurant, we where met by a ginger haired Romanian server who advised we could sit where we liked. For the meal, I had cauliflower, hake and then opted for a cheeseboard and my wife had pigeon breast, hake and the rhubarb semi-fredo all beautifully presented and very good. There was a also a complementary amuse bouche and small sweet dish served which was a nice touch
There is a good selection of wines and we opted for a very nice bottle of Malbec and
service was impeccable throughout the meal again from our Romanian friend
Breakfast was very nice, i had the eggs Benedict and there was also the usual selection of fruits, cereals etc, we where again served by the same gentleman as the previous evening
I would like to add at this point that the Romanian server i am referring to and sadly forgot his name, is a credit to the hotel. He blends effortlessly both the personal and professional etiquette which enhanced our stay. i would be obliged if you pass on our best wishes and thanks.
During our stay we also used the spa, the spa and pool are really for relaxing in with a good book rather than thrashing up and down the pool as the pool is very limited by its size and more of a large plunge pool.
There is also a steam room and changing facilities are well kept and modern. Free of charge herbal teas and water are available and you can also purchase regular hot drinks. Treatments where sadly fully booked although i had tried to book them but there was apparent a technical issue
In closing, a very pleasant stay and for us the staff made a huge contribution is making this a very relaxing stay...thank you and hope to see you again soon
We have just returned from this superb 2 night break at this wonderful hotel. We cannot fault it, impeccable service, superb food, wonderful spa. All the staff must truly love what they do,and this is reflected in the ambience and service, everything about this gem in the Cotswolds is truly outstanding.
Just returned from a 3 night stay in a package which included breakfast, evening meals, wine,welcome drink and access to the spa. This hotel is beautiful, clean, comfortable and worth every penny. The staff are all fabulous and cannot do more to make your stay enjoyable.
The food is incredible. Breakfast options are varied and all of great quality. We ate twice in the bistro and once in the fig restaurant. The bistro is wonderful, nice atmosphere, attentive service and generous portions of very good food. The fig restaurant is something else, the food is excellent and service perfect. Would highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion. The chefs are very talented.
The spa is pleasant but small and unfortunately opens quite limited hours (9.30am - 6pm) which made it hard for us to visit more than once due to other plans we had made. We didn't have any treatments but the pool was warm enough and we wiped away an hour before dinner. Again staff were fantastic.
We recommend this hotel and will stay again if we find ourselves back in the Cotswolds.
We had a lovely 2 night, midweek stay in February. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was very clean and quiet. Fresh cookies and a good selection of teas and coffee in the room. We ate in the Bistro both evenings and the lady who served us - Sally, I think - couldn't have been nicer. It was a bonus to have the Spa pool to relax in at the end of the day. The hotel appeared full, so there was some wait at breakfast, but who needs to rush in such a lovely environment.
