If you want a super break!

J - Kent, stayed: April 2019

Everything superb, just go! I am very surprised by the negative reviews I read prior to our visit. Everything was great, friendly (lovely, welcoming receptionist) great breakfast, super friendly professional staff, lovely afternoon tea, super clean room, constant hot water with such high pressure - so great showers. Thank you for giving us such a lovely break away, so convenient to explore the Cotswolds. We will definitely be seeing you again.

Short Break Mid - Week

CC, Derbyshire, stayed: April 2019

Thoroughly enjoyable stay with friends. Very good breakfasts. The main resteraunt food was good but not gourmet. As with all hotels of this standard the bar prices seemed rather on the high side catering for those on business expenses. The room was good with a very nice view out over the gardens towards the pond/lake. The bed was very comfortable and we both had two good nights sleep.

Birthday present

Anon, stayed: March 2019

We stayed for one night. Contemporary comfortable hotel. Room and ensuite were spotlessly clean and the large bed very comfortable. We had a view over the grounds at the front of the hotel. A lovely setting and great for exploring the Cotswolds. Helpful staff. What really let the hotel down was the restaurant. We had a 3 course meal in the evening. The prawn cocktail was so cold it was tasteless, I had mushrooms in a wine sauce on top of untoasted bread which was soggy. I had to return my Thai green chicken as the meat was gristly. We both had chicken curry which had very little meat. The fruit crumble was tiny, all crumble and very little fruit. The food came out quickly and we got the impression it had been prepared in advance and just microwaved. Very poor. Thankfully the breakfast was better.
