Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

There are two parts to this review

First is Food and beverage/ Recently held a welcome dinner for 70 wedding guests in the Brunell room. Having made the arrangements total via email, never seeing the property or trying the food was somewhat apprehensive. Though we only had a buffet and some passed items the hotel did a wonderful job. Food was good, plentiful, what we ordered, on time and a real hit. A cash bar was equally very well handled with a multitude of staff helping guests quickly. Even a glich in the credit card system was resolved quickly and staff was pouring again. We brought donuts with us from London which we decided to put out last minute. Staff handled well, putting on trays and displaying for the 30 seconds they lasted. Breakfast in the morning we beautiful and full of variety, atrium bar had good food, service everywhere was handled by very nice kids. A request for a specialty drink sent one I think through the bowels of the building, but she returned cheery with drink in hand. Did notice that having two weddings in the building Sunday brunch was quite busy but the hotel was prepared, setting up additional space in the atrium bar so no one waited more than a few minutes. Overall, very impressive all the way around! Food service definitely managed well.
The rooms: I don't know that the trip advisor reviews accurately portray how beautiful and well- kept this property is. Mixed reviews left us with a felling of apprehension and even some locals we spoke to left us very unsure of what we were getting into. We were wrong. You pull up to a building and entrance that is a throw back to another era. Stately and regal. The grounds are magnificent. Well manicured , vast and green. The inside has a grandeur that i have only seen on television.. The place is spotless. We were a large group at a wedding so we had over 20 rooms in total. The larger ones are very well appointed with very modern bathrooms. The small ones also quite comfortable with new bathrooms. There is one drawback. We were there right after it was hot and the guest rooms never recovered. Being a historic building the windows for some reason did not open much, many sealed shut. Heat was not unbearable but for Americans it was warm in a lot of the rooms. The staff did EVERYTHING they could to help, running fans, changing rooms and showing patience of the staff you would expect to find in some large convention hotel in a city.
De vere Tortworth was a very pleasant surprise and should not be missed if you are staying in the Cotswalds. Its definitely worth the road not taken.

We stayed as a family of five and booked three rooms. I felt it was good value to have the double rooms in such a nice hotel at just over £100 a night given I booked with just a week's notice after our Wales holiday had to be cancelled due to Covid. The rooms were very clean and the check-in staff were very attentive. There were even face masks and santising gel in a handy bag left on the bed.

Tip for future travellers - book your breakfast and spa visits before you arrive! We only had the choice of breakfast at 10:30 or 07:30! That is because of Covid and social distancing. Thankfully, we were on a relaxed weekend and choose 10:30, but had we had places to be, we might have had to forego breakfast. The swimming pool is also limited to 10 people per half hour sessions and I ended up having to go on my own as there weren't enough spaces - annoyingly, people then didn't turn up to their booked time so I could have taken my mother had I known. Not the hotel's fault, just more covid frustration.

The building is old, so expect noises. The windows on my mother's room rattled, and she could hear loud footsteps whenever anyone walked around above.

The breakfast was a little disappointing. I know that changes have been made for covid, but there wasn't a lot of choice. There is no cooking of special requests (only scrambled egg, no fried for example) and the pastries etc were all sealed in plastic, cash and carry style. I'm hoping this is just while covid is ongoing and that the hotel can return to better breakfasts after the pandemic is over. I was also a little annoyed that we were booked in to the 10:30 slot for breakfast, but that breakfast started to be cleared away by 10:40. This meant that after having a starter of fruit, when we returned to the buffet, the pastries and cooked food was already being cleared away. The food should have been kept out until 11:00 if you're taking bookings for 10:30. Once again, not our choice to have it that late, it was the only available slot.

Overall the hotel was very clean and covid safe and the grounds are lovely. We enjoyed our stay and I would recommend, though maybe after the pandemic has passed.

Dear vforbes. Thank you for taking the time to review De Vere Tortworth Court. The hotel re-opened in July with operational restrictions some of which have been reviewed, the introduction of time slots for breakfast was to enable us to return to our popular buffet breakfast, at the present time we are unable to offer any extras, hopefully this will change in the future. I have taken note of your comment and will discuss this with the restaurant manager. Our reservations team are sending a pre-arrival e-mail advising our guests of all the things that are in place to enable you make the most of your stay, I can only apologise if this was not the case. Once again, thank you for your feedback and I'm pleased that you had an enjoyable time. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kind Regards. Raphael Herzog. General Manager.

This hotel is a stunningly decorated and presented hotel in a picturesque location.

The room was spotlessly clean, and room service is now done via an app (with no extra room service fees) to reduce contact due to COVID 19. Or you can eat in the restaurants which have been socially distanced, or even better the terrace which is an outdoor area overlooking the gardens (if you have nice weather)

Rooms do vary a lot, however mine was a suite in the original Manor House overlooking the gardens at one side and the front of the hotel at the other, with beautiful tall ceilings and windows.

I think the difference with some of the reviews here are whether you are in the renovated Manor House or not. And this is shown by the room class you book and the example photos on the website, so it should be fairly clear.

The reception staff were excellent, including Alex who was extremely professional but also friendly, helping me out when I had a small issue with my room, to the extent that I was impressed enough that I’ve booked a stay for my parents to come and visit after I’ve left, so they can have a break in this excellent location too.

Additionally, all staff members are working hard on precautions for COVID 19, wearing masks and keeping distanced, wearing gloves when delivering food etc. There were some negative comments on other reviews about the new breakfast arrangements (where a continental breakfast bag is left outside your room each morning then you go and collect a hot breakfast sandwich) however I can absolutely see why the hotel is doing this to reduce crowding, and I also really liked having the bag delivered each morning. The fruit and yoghurt in it was really nice and fresh.

Everyone I’ve shown the photos to have wanted to come and visit themselves. If possible, I would recommend coming on the first Sunday of the month, when the owners of the nearby Tortworth Lake (the lake originally for the Manor House) open it up to the public.

The place looks amazing however they have gone covid crazy and really makes you feel uncomfortable. We booked a junior suite, really it was just a large double room, there was an odd smell coming in the bathroom which smelt like drains, tried to book for dinner but was told fully booked and would have to order in the room, menu was limited and basic i.e. chicken, pizza or burgers and food came in brown box with wooden cutlery. Wasn't allowed wine glasses in the room, only plastic glasses, even a whisky came in plastic glass ordered from rooms service. Breakfast a disaster delivered in a brown bag by your door in the morning which consisted of fruit, soggy granola, long life pain Au chocolate, banana, water and orange, you can go down to get either or sausage or bacon bap from the restaurant to eat back in your room but really tasteless, even the cups for coffee in the room where disposable. Wouldn't have expected this at this hotel from the price we paid for one night being £230. Would not return, De Vere group needs to look at their covid model for this hotel, other hotels are able to do a cooked breakfast in a restaurant.

thank for your review , it is very disheartening for the team to see such poor score as they are trying their hardest in such a difficult and restricted time, it has been very challenging to manage expectations as offering and procedures are unfortunately different in hotels , bars and restaurants now with Covid when we follow government guidelines. I'm sorry that we did let you down and I can assure you that the team is trying very hard in such an unexpected busy time for us and with so many Covid restrictions to comply to which has made it much harder for us to cope with larger number with dinner and breakfast offering, time slot for swimming, no daily room cleaning and so on. I can only apologize f we could not meet your expectations on this occasion and if you felt let down. We would love to offer breakfast plated in the restaurant but we are unable to do so as with social distancing the restaurant can only seat 65/70 people compare to 150 before and with 250 to 300 guests in house, we are just unable to open the restaurant for breakfast in a safe way which I'm Sure you will understand. We have opted for the breakfast bag like many other hotels with similar amount of guests as us. I fully appreciate some hotels would do it as they might have 50 breakfasts and not over 300. Unfortunately with covid restrictions there are many things that are different in hotels, restaurants ... and we try our hardest to make it safe and still offer a great experience . I would like to assure you that we welcome your feedback and as we are a learning organisation we appreciate all feedback and find it very valuable in moving forward and improving the service that we provide to our guests. We take great pride in the individual, friendly and courteous service that we provide to all our guests, ensuring that their comfort and care are at the forefront of what we do. Im happy to discuss this further so please email me directly on Tortworth.GM@Devere.com Kind Regards, Raphael Herzog

We stayed here in a junior suite which was quite possibly the best room we have ever stayed in. It was spacious, modern and clean with a huge bed. The way the hotel is dealing with coronavirus is excellent, the room had a seal on when we arrived and there was a pack in the room with hand sanitiser, masks and gloves. An app is also available to minimise contact when ordering. The pool is open however you need to prebook this.

On the evening of our stay we had dinner in the 1853 restaurant which was reasonably priced with good quality food, portion sizes were spot on. The chocolate and orange tart is much recommended for dessert. Breakfast was a buffet with a full english served by a chef with cereal and fruit available. The only thing we would have liked to have seen is pancakes.

Overall we had a superb stay and we look forward to returning in the future.

Me and my boyfriend decided to take our staycation at Cotswold for 7 days and we picked De Vere Tortworth Court with their amazing location and arboretum.

The junior suite facing the garden (Paxton suite we stayed in) is totally worth paying for as it's so spacious with super high ceiling. The ensuite bathroom comes with two basins, a bath and a shower.

Staff are friendly and helpful. My boyfriend loved the bar and their good selection of cocktails. We spent every evening there throughout our stay :)

They did well with the European/British cuisines and we were most impressed with their afternoon tea, steak sandwiches, buttermilk chicken and pizza. Their tikka masala reminds of boarding school meal which left something to be desired for.

The disappointing part is their breakfast. Their filtered coffee is bad and sub-standard. Residents were also limited with the number of hot food they could pick. The cold breakfast they brought to each room were wrapped in paperbag and they should explore the option of recycling the empty juice/water bottles and cutlery.

Stayed whilst visiting family. Good price but rooms in annex very worn and shabby and ours was a good walk from the main part of the hotel. Bathroom was very old and taps and toilet needed replacing. Toiletries were basic in room large bottles of shampoo and bath gel fixed to wall

Staff very pleasant and helpful. Main reception rooms were impressive but as it was in school holidays extremely busy. Food was standard hotel fare
Leaf Spa and pool busy and not well staffed, phone often not answered when we called to book

In relation to your room which is in the courtyard area, we are looking at this area for refurbishment in the near future, which will address some of the areas you have raised. The spa can also become busy especially during half term or school holidays and especially during the spa children access times. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. Sincerely, Raphael Herzog General Manager

After having 3 oversees holidays cancelled due to COVID-19 we decided to book a few nights away in the U.K. for our wedding anniversary instead and we were over the moon with our decision when we arrived at Tortworth Court.
(We found the best price was by booking direct & we also joined their Applause Loyalty programme).

The grounds and building looked beautiful (we were lucky to have a warm sunny day in October) and as soon as we walked in we could see that the appropriate measures had been put in place - hand sanitiser stations, one way systems etc.
The reception team were welcoming & even upgraded us to a junior suite for our anniversary which was a lovely gesture.
The room & bathroom were spotless and even included a COVID-19 kit of disinfectant wipes, hand sanitiser & face masks.

We explored the grounds & nearby areas over 2 days (lovely walks at Purton Canal & ship graveyard, Thornbury & Dursley) and ate both evenings in the restaurant.
For both breakfast & dinner we could not fault the options on offer at the restaurant or the prices/service. Equally when we were sat in the main bar, the bar staff were working incredibly hard, especially considering it is table service only at the moment. The Atrium is a beautiful spot to enjoy your drink in too.

We used the pool facilities during our stay & this was well managed by booking in a time slot, as per meals. Spa/pool staff were friendly & helpful.

We can honestly say that this is one of the best properties we have stayed in which also has very high standards of customer service. For the price we paid, it was exceptional!

Well done to the whole team!

We really enjoyed our stay & would not hesitate to book again.

This hotel has the potential to be a truly wonderful place to stay but unfortunately it still has some work to do.
Firstly, check-in is at 3pm and not a second before. Consequently, there was a queue pretty much out the door to check in at 3pm, something I have never experienced anywhere before.
Secondly, the restaurant. We booked a table when we checked in and were told they could only offer us a table at 8.30. As it was late in the day and the hotel was clearly very busy we didn't think much of it. However, we booked again the following day after breakfast and were again told they could only do 8.30. We could see from the adjacent bar in the evening that the restaurant was pretty empty at around 7pm so couldn't understand why we couldn't get a table until so late. Further, because service was pretty slow we were still there at gone 10pm and the staff had begun setting up for breakfast whilst we were still eating. The restaurant is extremely expensive for what it is, and the menu is very limited. They offer one vegan and one vegetarian option. If you are staying for a week you will have exhausted the entire menu by the end of your stay.
Finally, the spa facilities. I would imagine most people booking to stay here are booking on the premise that this is a spa hotel. However, if you are hoping to have any treatments make sure you book well in advance. When we arrived we were told they were fully booked up for the next week and a half. As for the pool and sauna, they have a limit of 30 guests at any one time (a mere tenth of the number rooms in the hotel). Therefore you will more than likely have to queue to get in, especially at peak times when kids are allowed in as well. I cannot speak for the men's changing rooms but in the ladies there are only 3 separate changing cubicles and again, if you queued to get in you are unlikely to get a locker. I had to leave my clothes and personal belongings on the bench by the lockers and lost my room key as a result.
In general, I don't think the facilities are up to scratch and certainly don't cater for the potential number of guests.
The staff, however, were always welcoming, polite and friendly.

We did a last minute booking for a night away and chose Tortworth Court as we had been here a few years ago and very much enjoyed it.
We were a little concerned how things might work in a COVID setting but have to say De Vere have organised things brilliantly. From checking in to wining and dining the staff and planning ensured that we felt safe throughout our stay. We were lucky with the weather so were able to sit on the terrace, both for afternoon drinks and breakfast, but the room we were allocated was beautifully appointed and it wouldn’t have been a hardship to breakfast there.
We were upgraded from a Junior Suite to de luxe and the room and facilities were spotless and well thought out.
We had prebooked a table in the restaurant for dinner, and again the way it was organised meant we were safely distanced from other diners.
Lots of sanitisers throughout the venue and even a little safety pack each ensured we had gel available at all times.
The pluses - lovely, spacious room with super comfy bed; beautiful gardens and plenty of outdoor seating; polite and helpful staff; and a great location.
Downside was the limited dining menu (though we understand why) and the continental breakfast pack - again a necessity in the current environment. Neither of these detracted from what was a great break away and we’d recommend this hotel to anyone feeling nervous about staying away in the middle of this pandemic.

Hi there -a room in the house could mean you are closer to their main wedding venue at the front of the hotel. The main house is the older part and courtyard rooms are newer buildings but would possibly be quieter. It didn’t bother us to be honest but best to ask when booking or add a note to ask for a room further away from any parties?

Hi , we had a really nice stay at Totworth Court. It was busy whilst we were there , as there was a wedding in the glass conservatory . Parking was plentiful as there are several car parks onsite. Did you ask reception about parking ? It is a shame you weren’t happy with your stay .
