“Lovely Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2007

Having seen the reviews on Trip Advisor I thought the Fosse Manor would be a great place to take mum to celebrate her birthday..... and we weren't dissappointed.

We didn't necessarily want to stay in the most luxurious hotel or the most expensive but we did want the best service; not simpering but warm and friendly, which is exactly what we received.

A lovely country hotel, spacious room and lovely bathroon (we did book the superior) and fantastic views. We ate both nights in the restaurant and the food was excellent - the option of a few fresh crispy vegetables would have been good to go with the gourmet dishes.

Altogether a wonderful weekend and the hotel was just what we wanted.

We decided to spend an evening with close friends in the Cotswolds and chose the Fosse Manor, having driven past this imposing Manor house just prior to entering the picturesque village of Stow on the Wold, on many ocassions.

We booked in to stay last weekend, to enjoy a relaxing evening, without anyone having to do the driving home after the meal.

Our experience from start to finish was exceptional, with a room looking out onto the cotswold hills , well furnished and creating a relaxing atmosphere.

The evening meal was perfect across all three courses, with locally sourced produce, and the recently refurbished restaurant created a very relaxing environment , without unnecessary formality

We will certainly be going back again for some more of this , as it is the perfect antidote to the stressful life we lead during the working week.

we arrived at fosse manor and thought that we would be staying in the hotel itself but to our disapointment we were led next door into the old converted coach house our faces dropped as we were led to this other building as from the outside it looked terrible we were then taken to the room and it was nice but very dark and for a superior room i did not expect 2 single beds to be pushed together we arrived at 3.15pm the heating was not on and this day it was very windy and cold there was a draught in patio doors and curtains were blowing about our plans were to bath and get changed and go out for a meal we phoned reception at 4.pm and asked for heating to be turned on in room at 4.30 we had a phoione call back and was asked are you warmer we said no as no heating had come on the reception came over and gave us a small heater to place in our room. we then waited until 6pm for heating to come on the radiator in our room was hot at top but cold all at bottom hardly any heat at all. also all through the night we had a banging sound from extractor fan in bathroom the room was large a superior room but not worth the money as cold, not cleaned well either the bathroom floor was dirty. . if you book fosse manor ask if you will be staying in the main hotel as if you expect this you may not get it and from where we were no views at all the only view we saw was at breakfast which was lovely and the diding area had nice views

We booked a two night stay at Fosse Manor to celebrate our 24th wedding Anniversary. We were specifically looking for a privately run hotel(which are few & far between these days). The Fosse Manor was absolutely fantastic, the food was lovely and to be served by friendly courteous staff was a pleasure. The breakfast is cooked to order which is so rare these days. We booked a double room in the courtyard which has its own patio area (very handy if you are a smoker) The room could be furnished a little more luxurious but we had no complaints. We had a lovely free standing bath and nice fluffy bathrobes to relax in.The Hotel is quiet & peaceful with lovely views of the countryside, it is also centrally located to Burton-on-the-water(about 4 miles) Slaughters and Stow with its wonderful little shops.I would recommend this Hotel to anyone and I am a bit fussy to say the least!!

  • Liked — Spacious bedroom with patio area
  • Disliked — bedroom furniture

Stayed here for 1 night in the coach house not in the main manor. The room was disappointing. I expected it to be more luxurious but instead it was furnished a bit like an upmarket IKEA bedroom. The breakfast was a full english breakfast and the staff were friendly

The room was excellent, spacious, clean and very good value for money. The food however was a little disappointing. There is no table d'hote menu and the a la carte menu is brief to say the least. Some main courses include vegetables but some don't with an apparently random distribution to this. We'd booked B&B only through a website but we'd originally planned to eat in the hotel for all three nights of our stay. After a disappointing dinner on the first night we chose to eat elsewhere on the other nights. Breakfast is fine, plentiful and cooked to order, not a buffet.

  • Liked — Great room, large bed
  • Disliked — Indifferent dinner menu

We booked to stay at Fosse Manor at the last minute on a whim after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. From start to finish our stay was most enjoyable! We were checked in quickly and efficiently and shown to our room by the lady who checked us in. We were not disappointed by our room, we had booked a standard room and were allocated an attic room which was at the front of the main building overlooking the gardens and the car park; the room was tastefully decorated and the bathroom a decent size. The bed was very comfy! All of the staff we came across were extremely polite and friendly! Breakfast was a real treat and the bar was very pleasant to relax in in the evening. We didn't take advantage of the hotel restaurant for an evening meal as we preferred to take advantage of the vast choice of local eateries in nearby Stow-on-the-Wold. Fosse Manor is a great choice for a relaxing break and provides a great base from which to explore the Cotswolds!
