    Staff friendly and helpful. Dinner was excellent. Breakfast also good.

    Room could have been bigger with more room/storage for baggage.

    The room was well intended and would have been great if clean and fully functional. The breakfast was really nice and the location was good. The only member of staff we saw during our stay (the breakfast waitress) was excellent. I thought the bed very comfortable.

    The heating was on full blast in our room and we had no way of adjusting, having to keep all windows wide open at all times, our stay was in January. Cleanliness wasn't quite there, especially in the bathroom, linen was ok though. Both the sink and the shower (no bath) only ran hot or very hot. We couldn't get any cold or cool water out of the shower at all. We were forced to wash in the sink, which couldn't be plugged/filled. When you ran the shower or sink tap, brown sludgy water would bubble up from between the floor tiles at the foot of the sink. Clearly the plumbing needs urgent attention. We stayed two nights, after our first night we were unable to shower so went to breakfast at 8:30 unwashed. Breakfast was due to start at 8:00 until 10:00. There were no staff in yet, our waitress arrived five minutes later citing staff illness/shortages. We raised the problems in our en suite and she informed us that the manager wasn't in until 10:30 but she would try and reach them for us. We had to go out at 10:30 to meet friends and wanted to shower prior. We never heard from the manager and had to wash in the sink. We returned late that day after our day out with friends to find the pub already closed down and staff all gone. Nothing had been done about our room or note left, no missed calls etc. There was a note pinned to the door to leave it unlocked for some late check-ins that night. I believe the late check-ins had the room above ours, highlighting how thin the walls and ceiling were in our room. If we had tried to go to sleep prior to about 11:30pm we would have been roundly awakened listening to our new friends clump around their room at length. The next morning I still couldn't find a manager, who arrives at 10:30am apparently, and check-out is also 10:30am. We left, disappointed at 10am, not wanted to stay any longer. The waitress assured us she would chase the manager regarding our issues but I don't expect to hear anything.

    Only stayed 1 night as passing through The Cotswolds. Beautiful area and even though middle of winter it added to the atmosphere. The rooms were clean and beautifully designed and extra nice touches such as throw rugs and hot water bottles. Would highly recommend and would happily stay again.

    Upon arrival we were told that dinner in the restaurant wasn't available due to the Christmas period. However there were a few local pubs available (but not all served dinner) and we went to The Weighbridge Inn which was a cute little pub with amazing food - 2 in 1 pies were delicious.

    The location, the room and the breakfast with good service at breakfast time.

    Let down by the demand for an extra £25 to use the room before 3pm despite it being ready. Staff still took our bags to the room but we were unable to enter. Other hotels would let you in if the room is ready.
