Attractive short 'get away' establishment in pretty village location. Very professional, efficient and friendly staff. Varied menu, great quality, beautifully presented, in choice of bar or pleasant dining room.

Recently stayed at the Country Inn. First time at this hotel, but saw the village previously and fell in love. Decided on a couple of days away walking in the Cotswold so immediately researched Lower Slaughter and looked for places to stay. The hotel is excellent in all aspects. Décor and comfort of rooms is lovely and the service was...

The hotel is very charming and the staff very helpful. There is a lovely bar with a log Fire and the restaurant was brilliant. However, the booking is very misleading. Upon arrival I was told I'd been 'upgraded' to one of the cottages, which seemed to be a modern purpose built lodge in the carpark. Although I booked directly several...

I am pleased that you found the hotel charming, the staff helpful, our bar lovely, our restaurant brilliant, but of course I am sorry that you did not like your complimentary upgrade to one of our cottage rooms. Next time you stay if you request to be in the main building we would not make this gesture of an upgrade...

Our second stay at the hotel was superb. The friendly competent staff, the beautiful rural location, the appetising breakfast and the comfortable hotel room made it a perfect three day break. Thank you!

Stopped here whilst touring round the area. What a lovely setting, surroundings and interior. We were just there for few drinks but the open fire and the staff made us feel so welcome we will definitely go back to the restaurant on another visit to the area. One to look forward to.

We booked for a Sunday night in February so that we could have the afternoon and Monday in the Cotswolds. The Country Inn is in the small village of Lower Slaughter which has stunningly beautiful houses on either side of the stream that flows through the village with the Manor House Hotel and Church sitting opposite the Country Inn. We...

This is a wonderful location and hotel which would have received our top rating without hesitation except for our dinner experience at The Manor House (part of the same chain) on Saturday night. We were not made aware that the only menu option that night was an 8 course taster menu. Even though we asked for an alternative on arrival,...

Professional and friendly service throughout our stay and we thought the hotel and surrounding area were beautiful. The one thing that marred our stay slightly was my wife's meal being served to her cold. (Especially seeing as it was her birthday.) That was corrected however and was the one blip in an otherwise enjoyable stay.
