How to Get There

Breakfast is also great with a good choice and was always served hot which can be rare in alot of hotels
will certainly return we did the two night dinner b and b deal with champagne and chocolates and found it excellent value for money
My husband and I have just checked out after a three night stay, with my parents. We had a dinner bed and breakfast package booked directly with the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised to be given the same room we stayed in when we last visited 6 years ago (room 17) which is very large and has a marvellous view. My parents, who needed an accessible room (room 6) were not so fortunate as they overlooked the car park - we were advised this was the case when we booked. The hotel was generally as good as on our previous visit, and the staff were welcoming and helpful, but there were a few things that we not quite as good as they could be, hence my very good rather than excellent rating. My parents room was very hot and they were disturbed when deliveries were made in the early hours. In our room the furniture was starting to become a little scruffy and rickety, the safe did not work, the makeup/shaving light was awful, TV signal kept breaking up and the Wi-fi was very poor (Wi-fi was not even available in my parents room). The other minor annoyance was the weeds growing on the terrace. However, we had a lovely stay and feel happy to recommend this hotel, but would like to see these minor annoyances addressed. The restaurant was excellent, both morning and evening, but I would prefer to see a different menu each night, rather than the same with a couple of specials.
This is an old luxurious manor house with lovely view of the Cotswolds hills. The grounds are large and well maintained and perfect for a nice walk. The interior of the old house was well-furnished with a century old feel. Our large room was refurbished comfortably. The dining room was not open when we were there so we had to eat at the bar room on a little table barely big enough for one. The food was good but a little pricey. The only drawback to this inn would be that it is not walking distance to anything else.
This luxury country-house hotel is situated in the Cotswolds. Booked by my wife for a birthday get a way. Friendly staff and lovely location, large grounds and tasty food! Lovely surrounding area about 5 minutes drive from Stow where there are coffee shops and ice cream shops. Lovely idyllic countryside and a great place to recoup and relax
As a couple we stayed as part of a large party for a company event and unfortunately this was not a good experience. The outside looks lovely, check-in was welcoming and we were shown where our function would be in the evening but after that, the impression went downhill. Our room was in the orangery which was small but fine except for the pillows (which we heard lots of people complain about) and the very light curtains which hardly blocked any light out. This made for a very uncomfortable nights sleep for both of us.
The main cause for concern was with the food. Due to the weather, we had a BBQ buffet inside and although the selection was good, several of the guests found the chicken kebabs were raw; not acceptable. When we informed staff this was quickly taken away to be checked but at a hotel like this, used to catering for large parties, it should not have happened in the first place. Secondly, the function room was located at the end of corridor which you had to use to get to the toilets or the bar, there was a service door used by staff which opened outwards into the fairly narrow corridor and almost hit me with force when I was walking down it. This is a major health and safety issue - there was no caution used by the staff member when using it (he got a shock when he nearly hit me), and no warning to guests to take a wide berth as it was in use. I have brought these things to the attention of the hotel but received no response, not even an acknowledgement. Not impressed. Even if our company decided to return, we would not.
