Thank you for this lovely critique. It was a delight to meet you and we are so pleased we have been able to make your days in the Cotswold and the UK pleasant. We do try hard, may not succeed on all occasions, but when guests write on the web or send us a thank you card it really does make all the difference. Thank you. if you’re in Broadway again please do call.

Arrived to find the room we had booked with a king sized bed through Laterooms unavailable. Given Stretton which was small and had a very low main beam and anyone above 5’4” would struggle in this room. Also in this room the walls are paper thin and we were subjected to noise

We thank these guests for the opportunity to comment on these items some of which are completely wrong. The guest spoke of their concern on bed size only, after their first night stay and we tried to explain the difficulties that a small guest house like Cowley has when using a national booking service designed for hotels with many, many rooms 1. We do not make a charge for the use of cards, as that is now illegal, and we never said that we did. The guests are confused with a discussion we had about additional charges levied upon us by Laterooms. 2. The owner did not say that all our rooms were Luxury or Superior, and if you look on Laterooms we have four groups. Cowley House is a mixture of 4 houses that have morphed into one over 400 years. All our rooms are very different in size, height décor etc, yet Laterooms requires the end user to place rooms into a Superior, Luxury, Standard or 4 Post categories. With each room being very different we tried to group them around size of room and en-suit facilities, not around bed size. This couple booked a superior room for which we have three in that group and we allocated them a superior room. We would have offered them an alternative room had they made their concerns known to us straight away, but the next day we had filled, and we only had a standard room left which would not have been appropriate. 3. Stretton does have a low beam, and we have now tried to make that more apparent to Laterooms 4. Our rear carpark can accommodate 8 standard family cars, but only 6 range rovers or people carriers. Our front car park can also be used by guests which can park a further 4 cars. The problems arise if guests park without consideration of other guests. Further our confirmation sheet shows the best ways to park that maximize space. 5. Our breakfast dining room can seat 16 people, if everyone arrives at the same time there can be a wait at the breakfast bar. 6. The rooms to which this couple refer have solid Cotswold stone walls up to 2’ thick on three walls. The fourth wall when the room was extended to make a larger bedroom and bathroom 4 years ago was approved by the Building Regulations to the current standard for sound and heat insulation and 60 minutes fire resistance. Finally, we are proud of our 4* guest house that has won several awards including AA Best Breakfast, and we try hard to ensure that our guests enjoy a relaxing stay. We offer tea, coffee and cakes on arrival and sherry is available in the lounge. We pride ourselves on a personal service and are saddened that the guest feels we were ‘dismissive’. We feel the exact opposite is the case. The owner sat with them in the lounge listened to their concerns about the bed size. and tried to explain how rooms are allocated through Laterooms. They did not express any other concern to us yet, chose instead to write a missive to Trip Advisor because we did not offer a discount. Just in the month of June around when these guests stayed, 32 guests wrote to us complimenting and thanking us for an enjoyable stay. When guests come to a 400-year-old Cotswold house, that sits on the corner of a village green and meets and exceeds the current safety standards it is the oak and elm beams and less than vertical walls that creates the atmosphere of the Cotswold's. Perhaps on reflection they would be more content to stay in a modern motel.

Just home from a wonderfully relaxing stay at Cowley House. The bed and breakfast is ideally located just off the village green, so everything is on hand. We spent time in our beautifully appointed family room and in the tranquil rear garden. The breakfast was locally sourced,
