Had very high hopes for Barnsely House having read great reviews both on here and in CNTraveller. It is a relatively nice small boutique hotel but anyone expecting any sort of luxury 4/5 star experience (which at the price point of £500ish for a deluxe room is not unreasonable) will be disappointed. Location - Yes it is in village in...

We were only here one night. The place oozes charm. Room was spacious with cute windows looking over the backyard. We enjoyed the spa facilities. Lack of a 5th star was due to a few instances of poor service that seemed related to them having a large party at the property (for a wedding I think). The Sunday night movie...

Organised a surprise birthday dinner for my daughter, staff were wonderful, helpful, understanding, very willing to do everything to make the surprise happen. Dinner was delicious, service a bit slow, but professional, polite and friendly. Great menu to suit all tastes. Excellent value for money in beautiful surroundings. Gorgeous traditional external building, brilliantly modern comfort inside, neutral soft shades, good...

We booked a night away under the autumn spa package as we'd had a tough couple of months and wanted something to cheer us up. We turned up and were treated so lovely, nothing was too much trouble, we were made to feel so special. We have done nothing but talk about our stay since we've returned home, from the...

We went to Barnsley House for my husband's birthday and had a lovely experience all round. What stands out is the service. There are many lovely similar hotels throughout the Cotswolds, indeed the UK, and often it is the service which disappoints and fails to make up for lovely surroundings. Not so at Barnsley House. All our arrangements were honoured,...

We were very lucky to have Barnsley House be our introduction to the Cotswolds in late September. It is the most gorgeous, tastefully renovated country home to serve as a small boutique hotel. The atmosphere is very intimate and romantic. The rooms are stunning…..very cool decor…...very comfortable and luxurious. While there are all the modern amenities…the architectural integrity is still...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Barnsley House is your very own (fully staffed) country house set in extensive landscaped gardens near Cirencester in Gloucestershire. The Hotel has a dedicated spa, private cinema and 18 large and luxurious bedrooms to choose from. The Potager restaurant looks out to the gardens and is quite lovely. Sprigs of rosemary and linen napkins dress the tables with menus inspired from the Barnsley garden seasonal crops and local produce. If you tire of the daily home baked bread and crumbly shortbread biscuits with your afternoon tea, you can always nip across the road to our village pub. It's actually called 'The Village Pub' and delivers everything you want a village pub to deliver - open fires, papers, pints and delicious food! ... more   less
