We decided to book this hotel based on the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor, and we weren't disappointed. We went for the 'Summer Sparkle' deal, which includes breakfast, evening meal and a free glass of prosecco. We paid £89pp for midweek, which is very reasonable for a top quality hotel in this location.

We arrived a little early, parked up nearby and wandered around this charming village (I recommend the snug bar at The White Hart if you have a bit of time to kill.) We found the car park, which is at the rear of the hotel off East Street. I would advise setting the SatNav for East Street, not the hotel, as the streets are narrow and very busy (cars and pedestrians) and not the kind of place you want to be driving round searching for the car park.

We checked in and were given a tour of the hotel by the friendly receptionist, which was a very nice introduction to the hotel, and then shown to our room. The hotel is a bit of a rabbit run, which I would imagine isn't so good if you have mobility difficulties or small children (although there are ground floor apartments available), but for me it just adds to the charm and unique character of the hotel. (Some advice if you are taller than 6ft like me - you may need to practice your limbo to go up and down stairs to avoid hitting your head!) We requested an iron, which was bought up to the room immediately and politely. The room was very clean and had lots of nice touches, such as the teddy bear that you can 'adopt' and the Molten Brown toiletries. We had a couple of drinks from the bar, which were reasonably priced (£5.30 for a pint of Krusovice and a glass of rose) and relaxed into the deck chairs in the garden, which can only be described as a quintessential charming English country garden.

We ate in The Mulberry Restaurant, which despite being nearly empty (it was a Tuesday), struck the perfect tone. The staff were very professional and called us by our names, which was a nice personal touch. I had the Scallops to start, which I have to say were disappointing - they were tasteless and the black pudding that accompanied them had a gritty texture. My partner had the Stinking Bishop, which was much nicer, although it did have a small bit of plastic wrapping in, which the waitress apologised for and informed the chef. If you like strong cheese, which we do, I highly recommend this starter. For the mains we had the lamb and the beef, both of which were cooked to perfection with perfectly balanced flavours. The desserts (malt and rhubarb) again were excellent and a perfect finish to the meal.

We retired to the bar, which again has a very pleasant and relaxed atmosphere, and sampled the cocktails. These were exceptional and definitely worth a try - they were very fruity and not too 'boozy'. Again they were served with a smile and pleasantries, which really makes you feel comfortable.

We were worried that we might not get much sleep, as we were located at the front of the hotel overlooking the main road, which gets very busy during the day, but I was glad to find that it was much quieter at night and didn't present a problem at all. The only slight problem was that it was a very hot day and there was no way of cooling the room down apart from opening the window. A fan or cooler would have been appreciated. The room has free Wi-Fi, although this was difficult to connect to and you had to log back in every time you wanted to use it.

The breakfast room was relaxed, with the same excellent level of service that we had come to expect by this point. There is an excellent range of cold and hot breakfasts, with toast, tea, coffee, juice etc on demand. The restaurant manager immediately recognised us from the night before and welcomed us, again using our names. We had the full english, which was just what the doctor ordered to cure our slight hangovers from the cocktails!

Our overall impression is that this is a unique hotel, set in beautiful grounds with a 'local' charm and character. The staff were very professional, well-trained and friendly. If you are looking for a relaxing escape for a few days you need look no further.

My only slight criticism is that the starters didn't live up to the other courses, although I'm confident this was just a blip, and certainly not enough to put us off this fantastic hotel.

We are already planning our next visit and are also hoping to sample The Hare and Hounds, which is owned by the same group.

Room Tip: If you have mobility problems or small children I would recommend phoning the hotel first to check which rooms would be suitable, as the hotel is a bit of a rabbit run, with a lot of stairs and narrow corridors.

We like small and charming hotels and this fit the bill.We had a charmingly appointed room over looking a quiet corner of a park.The room was furnished with great snacks and a very good selection of teas and hot chocolate.There were several sitting rooms to read or hob nob with other visitors...they hotel attracted a nice crowd of friendly people.
The location in town and to other areas was ideal.
The restaurant had excellent food, wine selection and very attentive and professional staff,it was great to have the oppt'y. to meet such an interesting team of employees.
Would definately book here again.

Enjoyed our stay here while my partner was at the fire college. Got upgraded twice just by asking! Junior suite was lovely. First room was far too small.
Breakfast was lovely, bar and lounge very nicely decorated.

We stayed in the hotel for two nights and it was wonderful. The staff were very friendly, customer focused and attentive but not in your face. Only ate in the restaurant one night, and the food was amazing. I would highly recommend the cheese board! The exterior of the house is beautiful, and it was lovely to sit outside and have lunch. Would certainly go back again.

Business trip down to the Cotswolds again! Don't get me wrong it is a beautiful place & a joy to visit. Room 40 was clean and well presented though coffee pot broke as soon as I used it. Business dinner in private dining room with colleagues was good though the tuna starter was remarkably salty, beef main was beautiful. Cheese and biscuits a little disproportionate, too many biscuits and not enough cheese! Bed lovely and comfortable but was woken several times in the night by noises neighbours and creaking floor boards. Breakfast good with delicious scrambled eggs. Business faculties were excellent and so were the cream scones provided at our afternoon coffee break. Staff very helpful and friendly. Would I stay again, yes as it is beautiful and accommodating but I would ask for a different room!
