“fantastic experience”
Reviewed 7 November 2011

We were looking for accommodation for 5 Mums who were "getting away from it all" for the weekend. We certainly felt we had made a great choice as we had a dinner, bed and breakfast package which was excellent value. The food was delicious, the staff were unfailingly helpful and polite and the service was excellent. Would definitely visit again.

Wow what an experience. Our first trip to the Cotswolds and as soon as we arrived at number four we were greeted with a big smile and warm greeting. Our room was immaculate well equipped and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Situated between stow on the wold and bourton on the water it was an ideal location. Had a meal in the restaraunt and wow it was fine dining at its best and very well priced. The chef chatted to us after the meal which was a great touch. If your going to the cotswolds stay here the staff will make you feel so welcome and you ll be amazed at the high standards they set which is reflected in the restaraunt with high quality fine food. Thanks to you all see you again soon! Andy and Kate

We chose Number Four to stay for our anniversary and my wife's birthday. We were not disappointed, from the moment we walked in to the moment we walked out the extremely professional and attentive staff made our stay a wonderful experience. To mark our celebrations our room was upgraded to a suite room 201 (highly recommended). The decor and attention to detail throughout the whole hotel was a credit to the owners. We chose to eat in the restaurant (Cutlers) and that too was a very high class experience. From the very polite and experienced staff to the chef's delicious and inventive dishes. Located a mile from the town centre leaves a short walk or an even shorter drive into town. We looked around in Stow but saw nothing to compare to the standards at number Four. You would need to be very very picky not to like this place. Thank you sister's and staff for a great stay. Rog and Kym Devon. PS perhaps it should be renamed Number ONE !!

Room Tip: Room 201 was quiet and spacious.

The reviews on this site led us to book a night here for our Anniversary and we were not dissappointed. From the minute you walk through the door you feel well looked after and the food is fantastic - dinner and breakfast. Luxury without the usual pretentiousness that accompanies it. Well done!!

We arrived late on a Friday evening and the staff were very friendly, polite and welcoming. The room was spotless and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was cooked to order with a buffet of fresh fruit and ham/cheeses. The cooked breakfast was very nice - not as spectacular as it could have been (down to personal preference more than anything), but very nice all the same. Service was impeccable. Would stay again.

After reading rave reviews about this hotel. I decided to book dinner bed and breakfast for our break away.

We arrived early for check in, just on the off chance room being ready. The receptionist checked to see if house keeping had done our room..yes they had. Receptionist said she would get her supervisor to check the room before we went in (impressed by the professionalism of the staff, or so I thought).

Our room smelt of damp or something had leaked on the carpets. Went and complained and got given another room. The lady who owned it said she didnt know what had happened??? Surley it is her job to know!

We had a walk a around stow and decided to go back for a beer and ordered a pint on draft selection. We were told they had ran out and instead gave us 2 bottles of perioni for £3.50 each. The bar man said he had arrived this morning and found they had ran out, but a 4pm still didnt have any. I found this to be disorganised that the staff didnt know when they were low on stock and not borrow from another nearby establishment as I am aware happens.

The double rooms are small, beds nice and comfortable.

The dinner was lovely and made up for the short comings of the hotel, but I would class it as a bed and breakfast.

I would recommend to eat here but its overpriced for an overnight stay.

This hotel is a superb place to stay to explore the Cotswold area. The owners of the hotel are very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are immaculate and the fridge in the room is a nice touch.
Breakfast was delicious and the evening meal in the restaurant was scrumptious.
Would definitely stay there again.
