“A lovely stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

We stayed at the Dial House after booking that morning through Booking.com.
It is in the centre of Boughton on the Water close to everything so a perfect location. Check in was easy and our room was ready on arrival. We were complimentary upgraded to room 16 which was very quaint and full of character on the top floor.
In the evening we had a few drinks at the bar and the service was very good. We hadn't realised they had a hot tub outdoors so didn't have swimwear to use it but we took a look and it appears spacious and well worth a try. The garden is lovely too and appears well kept.
We slept very well and found the room to be clean and comfortable. There wasn't a bath in our room but the shower worked well.
Breakfast was good with smoked salmon on the menu. Check out was easy and staff were friendly and polite.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This hotel is in a great location for exploring. The bedroom was clean and comfortable although starting to show it's age and in need of a re fresh in a few areas.
Garden was great to sit out in, there is also a hot tub you can use and towel, robe and slippers are provided in your room.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
Overall a pleasant stay.

This is a very pleasant small hotel, in an excellent situation just back from the main street of Bourton-on-the Water, the core of which is an attractive and historic building. Our room was well equipped and comfortable, the bed particularly so. It was only on arrival that we found the hotel's restaurant was closed for dinner for the week, an error on the part of the booking agency and not on the part of the hotel. The front of house manager, Simon, could not have gone to more trouble to ensure alternative arrangements were made for us at a nearby establishment at very short notice. And indeed throughout our stay the staff were friendly and efficient. We look forward to returning on another occasion.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the garden at the back are wonderfully quiet.

My daughter and I had two nights stay here. Beautiful setting, lovely gardens, excellent staff, Room small but comfortable with modern bath, shower etc. Tea and coffee in room. Large bed, wide window into garden. Lounge for tea or reading a book, sitting area in bar very comfy. Breakfast delicious and lots of it. We couldn't have picked a better place to enjoy our stay in the Cotswolds and the village on the river is wonderful.

We had a inclusive night away at The Dial House with afternoon tea and biscuits, dinner, bed and breakfast. The food was spectacular very tasty and beautifully presented. The service was pleasant but the room was very small and a bit disappointing but as it was only one night is was adequate. Great not to have to drive home after dinner!

We were two couples both celebrating our Ruby Wedding Anniversary and retracing our Honeymoon in the Cotswolds.
The Dial House was a perfect place to stay two nights with professional staff and excellent food. Ideally placed in the heart of the village yet away from the tourists. We spent a whole day in the village and still did not see everything. The glorious weather helped but the places are amazing, such as Birdland, Motor Museum, Model Railway and the pubs including the Mousetrap.
