How to Get There
Spacious room but much too hot, not possible to turn off the heating in the bathroom which was more like a sauna. One of the radiators was leaking so the carpet was soggy. The food & service in the restaurant was excellent. The hotel advertised that wifi is available throughout the hotel but there was nothing in our room & nothing in the restaurant. With 4G very intermittent it meant that use of the internet was not possible. Don't stop here if you need regular internet. Having paid £225 per night for DB&B this made the hotel very poor value. We would not stay here again.
Great old manor house hotel near Stow-on-the-Wold, spent three nights here last week and had a lovely relaxing time. The food was excellent, the staff all very friendly and we had a huge room overlooking the valley at the back of the hotel. The bathroom was a bit tired but overall facilities were very good. We hope to return.
The thing that's brilliant about this hotel is the rooms - really good size with a comfy big bed and excellent bathroom including a bath which is unusual these days. We'd visited before and enjoyed it so that it was great we had a similar experience this time. We weren't overly impressed with the receptionist on arrival who seemed to be following a script. She told us the restaurant was pretty busy that night and would we like to go out to eat! We were a bit taken aback by that but luckily she then went on to say that there were bar snacks available which suited us fine. There was obviously some sort of event on but we easily found space in the bar and were served by a delightful young lady who also reappeared at breakfast. She is an absolute asset and was the best member of staff there. The menu in the bar is very good so we were not unhappy about missing out on the restaurant. I was however taken aback by the price of the drinks. I usually have a glass of rioja but it would have been over £10 a large glass. Breakfast was very good, cooked to order although the main waiter was not very good at spotting who had arrived. After we had sat down he went to two other tables who had arrived after us to ask them their tea and coffee requirements. Main complaints would be the non-existent WiFi and the very dim lighting outside which means it is difficult to find where to park. Despite my criticisms I still give this 5 stars and would visit again as 5 stars doesn't mean perfect!
