Burleigh Court Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Minchinhampton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 August 2013

We came to Burleigh Court for the weekend because we were attending a wedding in a nearby town. What struck us most forcefully was the contrast between the service offered at Burleigh Court and the way we were treated at the wedding venue. The staff at the wedding venue were offhand, sullen, careless. Guests at the reception were repeatedly asked to move on, get out of the way so that tables could be set up, drinks laid out..The person sitting next to me at dinner had more wine poured on the tablecloth than into her glass; nobody came to mop up. And so on. So bad, it was funny - but then I wasn't the father of the bride coughing up for this treatment.

Whereas at Burleigh Court the manager deserves great credit for building an excellent team: they all were all knowledgeable and keen to go the extra mile to help us, without being intrusive or over-familiar.

We stayed in a Superior Twin (Room Number Two). It was spacious, comfortable and with a pleasing outlook onto the rear garden. The bathroom was very large and had the advantage of a separate washbasin at each end.

The reception rooms, bar area and dining rooms are airy and well furnished. The food was excellent and the restaurant service very smooth. Although we stayed for two nights we only had dinner at Burleigh Court on the first evening because we were away at the wedding event on the second. Dinner starters are around £10 and main courses about £20. There were concessions on these prices if one had dinner on more than one night. Our rate £170 a night for two nights' bed and breakfast was very good value for what was on offer.

The grounds of the hotel are charming, with plenty of outside seating for good weather. High marks also for the cleanliness and state of repair of the place.

All in all, like staying in a friend's very well kept country house. We'll be back.

My darter and I travelled to Minchinhampton to see Giffords Circus, which is a must must do! This lovely b and b provided a wonderful experience outside of the big hotel in London. The gardens are spectacular. We had the best tea experience here on our entire trip. The breakfast is smashing. Our room was small but impeccable wanting for nothing.

We were looking for a country hotel for our visit to Highgrove and this had good reviews on trip adviser. We were not disappointed as I thought the whole hotel experience was excellent. We had room 5 on the first floor, a corner room overlooking the fantastic view at the front. The room was large with an enormous bed, bigger than our king size at home.
We had perfect weather, unusual for a trip in England, and we sat outside to admire the view as soon as we arrived. The gardens at the rear of the hotel are just as good as the front, again with plenty of seating areas. You can have a meal from the bar menu or a proper sit down meal in the restaurant. We opted for a bar meal, about £10, half the price of a restaurant meal but we could have eaten the bar meal in the restaurant had we wanted. A couple of G&Ts were £11 and a pint was £4.25, but I thought the hotel was worth it and I would recommend it to friends.
It's quite, out of the way and has 18 bedrooms I think, so quite small. Some rooms are in the adjoining coach house. There is a Victorian plunge pool, which is not a swimming pool as we would know it, if a pool is important to you then perhaps this is not the hotel for you. If you want undisturbed peace and quiet, with a touch of luxury thrown in then go for it.

Room Tip: Front rooms have a fantastic view over Golden vally

We went to Burleigh Court for a long birthday weekend and once again it hit the spot. I can't fault this little oasis of peace, perfect peace, near Minchinhampton in the lovely Cotswolds. The view from the hotel is beautiful and being slightly "off the beaten track" is SO quiet. Mm-hm. The accommodation is spotless, the staff couldn't be more courteous and the food is fabulous - and no ghastly muzak! Perfect! Long may it last...

Generally very good (also stayed last year) and had a better family room last time. Swimming pool sadly let's this hotel down as it is always very dirty and very cold.

Staff are discreet and only there when you need them. Two lovely terraces allow you to sit in the sun no matter what time of day you arrive.

Such a fabulous place to . Stayed one night. Wished it had have been longer. The quality of service and attitude of the staff is a credit to them; they have a great balance of politeness and friendliness which was just perfect.The view from the Terrance was stunning. As was our evening meal and breakfast. This is top os my list for another visit.
