The 1 out of 5 review can safely be disregarded. One wonders how the author would score a genuinely grim establishment. The William Morris is a perfectly nice little B&B with comfortable rooms (and beds) and helpful, amiable hosts. The building is clearly very old with authentically uneven and creaky floors, low doors, tiny windows, etc. This is character and the place is all the better for it. The décor is pretty much what you'd expect from the name of the place - floral patterns were a William Morris speciality - and the furniture is in the usual cottage style. Breakfast was absolutely fine, in fact the smoked Bibury trout and the cheese board were delicious, but there's no denying the option of a cooked 'full English' would have been welcome. If you absolutely must have sausages and bacon for breakfast you'll need to look elsewhere.
My only real criticism would be that it is slightly overpriced compared to the other B&Bs in the village. This however doesn't seem to stop most people enjoying their stay there, as the comments book full of praise from contented guests showed.
