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.

Can't think of much positive to say... parking is a pain. Rooms were dirty and in need of a total overhaul. Plumbing was on the verge of a total breakdown. First room, dirty and noisy, bedroom door wouldn't close. Changed room which looked like no housekeeping had taken place, no soap or shampoo or toilet roll. Nobody seemed bothered the only good thing was that nobody else was staying and it was quiet. Way too expensive (£165 a night!) for the state of the place. Don't waste your money.

Very small and quaint but comfortable. Small bar and was empty on a Sunday as did not serve food. Got busier over the hour or so we were there. Overall friendly and inviting environment. The food served is classed as a Italian Bistro but had Beef bourguignon so a real mix

Only book a stay at Burford House if you absolutely have to, and even then, I would highly recommend sleeping in your car. The room we stayed in was priced at £200 for the night, which is completely abysmal given its condition. The mattress didn’t have a mattress protector, and the mattress underneath this (yes, very odd) was completely yellow. The bedding itself was stained in parts; needless to say, it wasn’t an appealing place to sleep. It was evident the room hadn’t been cleaned properly in a while, a good few weeks worth of dust was visible on the surfaces and the carpet was in dire need of a good hoover - or just removing all together. The bathroom - where to start? It wasn’t fit to function as a bathroom as it was wholly unhygienic. When we flushed the toilet, the plumbing would gurgle, water would come up through the plug, and a pungent smell (only to be described as sewage-like) would fill the room. Delightful. The shower was incredibly grim: black mould lined the tray and caked the shower head. It was so bad, we didn’t shower, in fear of actually feeling dirtier following use of the facilities. It’s such a shame that this is the state of Burford House. As a town, Burford is a must to visit, but this definitely is not the place to stay. It’s a stain on what is a stunning gem of a Cotswold location and downright appalling that the company are allowed to charge what they do, for such a terrible service.

This is not an hotel. It is a glorified boarding house and incredibly overpriced. The road outside our bedroom was the equivalent to a 20 mph motorway. It never stopped. You can't sleep. The noise just echos down the road forever. The bed mattress was seemingly made of hardened straw as were the pillows. Very old scratchy bed linen. Abysmal. The toilet leaked all night. Every night. One morning we were all sent down the road to another establishment for breakfast because the chef didn't turn up. There were no staff in the place from approximately 5pm onwards. How is that an hotel? There is no parking. Burford is one giant car park and you have to move your vehicle around whenever you can for the parking. Worst place I have ever stayed in by far. Incredibly uncomfortable place.

Bar area is great the staff professional. But I booked a 5 star accommodation so when going to my room I don’t expect the following. Bathroom ceiling having cracks and mould on it, shower tiles and ceiling mould on it. The shower was warm at most. Bedroom door looked like it was kicked in. Unfortunately I will not be staying at this hotel again.see photos

We booked the Burford House hotel at a rate of £150 per night through Booking .com and it was diabolical. Boasting a 5 star- rating-which it is not! Definitely closer to 2 Star as it had a bed and running water. I wonder at the vetting process and checks and balances in place currently as both of your companies need to update your processes pronto! The reason that potential patrons use your company is for an unbiased report to ensure peace of mind. Otherwise, confidence in any of your ratings will be ridiculed and therefore not trusted. Burford House Hotel, notably the Windrush Room, that my wife and I unfortunately stayed in, was without doubt an appallingly unkempt and unclean hostel like accommodation. I did not expect to pay a week’s salary for mould in the bathroom, and on the window sill, and the curtains. there was grot in the tile grouting in and out of the shower area, cracked cistern tiles and pan, stained mattress and divan, and both windows had not been cleaned for weeks, with similar conditioned carpets, and one two inch soap for the duration of our stay. I felt cleaner going in the bathroom that I felt when I exited. Even the toilet paper was substandard and so narrow that you would need the accuracy of personal geographical co-ordinates of one’s derriere to avoid any mishaps -and then you’d definitely need more than the miniscule dollop of carbolic to help you out of the mire!!! Your business really needs to up its game as many loyal customers who trust and rely on your advice and reviews, will soon disappear. I trusted your opinions and found them to be completely opposite to reality. To a degree, you as a company must bear some responsibility for not diligently making checks on the details printed on your site. Many people, in fact all, that use these facilities currently, will be more than disgusted and would have a valid right to expect a refund from the proprietor. If one has an allergy to mould, this room could be detrimental to one’s health. To say that I am repulsed by the uncleanliness of the accommodation and the bathroom facilities, would be more than an understatement. The initial welcome was poor as the reception was closed (noted in the fine print to be fair) and the bar was closed, and dark and any accompanying facilities were not available to weary travellers. Breakfast was, to be fair acceptable enough, though the general debris behind the near by radiator did not radiate a sense of cleanliness or high levels of hygiene -further emphasised by the sticky tables and I found that glasses, cups and cutlery inexplicably, adhered to the surface. The outside escape route looked uncared for and possibly slippery due to lack of maintenance and the outside garden area looked uninviting and I could see that the tables and chairs needed a scrub as what seemed like moss had gathered and made the option to sit outside, generally unappealing. The area is beautiful without a doubt and I could see a similar description could have been, some time ago mind, attributed to Burford House. We will always return to Burford, but unfortunately, not to stay at this particular establishment.

Arrived at hotel checked in all good, then went to visit family got back at 10pm. Then on closer look around the room I'm sorry to say it was terrible. Not what we expected, I didn't want to stay. The room was terribly dusty, in need of a very good clean, dirty mattress under bed, hard mattress and pillows on the bed hardly slept, shockingly dirty windows and frames, the curtains even felt horrible to draw, black grout all in tiles bottom of shower and mould all on ceiling, don't know when skirting boards and bed moved to hoover, never I think. Nobody there at night to speak to about room, its all locked up and closed, we were given a key to get in with so couldn't even ask to change room. Even at breakfast which was not good, everything in that room was thick with dust, would definitely not recommend it. Paid £165 !!!

Lovely gardens, adjacent to burford house, and garden centre. Thought it might be just gardens that are dog friendly, but were told allowed in garden centre as well 👍 Small entrance fee for garden. Would definitely recommend for an hours wander, and the garden centre looks well stocked
