“Good Wedding Venue - Terrible Room Experience.”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Firstly, it's worth noting that as a wedding venue, this was great and everything went smoothly. This review is regarding the room we had for the stay.

Room 37 has been mentioned on another post, which I wish I'd read before booking. The room is supposed to be attached to the next room, via a door they close when the bookings are separate. This might as well be made of tissue paper as it didn't block any noise, despite them rolling a towel under the door and putting a 'do not disturb' sign on it - clearly they know it's an issue.

When the neighbouring room returned later in the evening, just them talking at a standard volume felt like they were talking right in our ears. In no way were they shouting, and we could hear every word.

In the morning I raised this with reception who did little more than shrug and say 'we can't help that' (despite clearly knowing it was an issue). They offered a £10 discount which was a tiny fraction of the room amount, which I turned down on principle.

Let the lesson be; 'Go to a wedding here, but stay somewhere else.'

Room Tip: Avoid Room 37 like the plague.

I must say that some people really want something for nothing these days (previous comments). This hotel is great and the people are all fantastic, right from the moment we entered up to the exit out the door. The staff could not have been more accomodating,from letting my husband virtually choose his own room to ensuring our breakfast was exactly what we wanted. I can't praise this place enough. A place is only as good as it's staff and these exceeded over and over again. I was so amazed at their energy and fortiture dispite the hot weather that I emailed Classic hotels to tell them what a wonderful job these people were doing. Makes a change from brick bats that are usually slung about. When you have a good price deal and get somewhere like this be grateful as there are many, many places out there that are very bad indeed and should expect critisism but certainly not this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 6 has a great view, and I don't care what others say the traffic is very light and even wit...

As this was a last minute deal I am sure we got stuck in a below average room. Very, very small & could have been much cleaner. That said, all the staff were nice, ate there in the evening and it was good food. We only stayed one night and the weather was so nice - good job because it would have been very claustrophobic hemmed up in that small room too long!

We stayed at Fosse Manor Hotel for 1 night on Thurdays, we received a pleasant and professional welcome, we were taken to our room which was large with sofas and plenty of storage, when we asked for a fan it arrived within 5 minutes, the bathroom was large with a big roll top bath and a seperate shower and plenty of hot water.
The only drawback was when entering the annex to our room the carpet is very stained and the decore could do with some attention.
The breakfast was delicious there was a good selection on the buffett and the full english was filling and had locally sourced produce and the waitress was more than accomodating, we will stay there again.

We stayed for 3 nights, using the Fosse Manor as a base for exploring the Cotswolds, for which it was ideally suited. Our room (in the Coach House annexe) was first class, with a large, comfortable bed, flat-screen TV, and a well-equipped bathroom (with plenty of piping hot water) - the private patio looking over pleasant countryside was an added bonus and just put the icing on the cake! Only three potential criticisms - (1) the shower had a tendency to drip, even when turned 'off', (2) the unusually hot weather meant that we suffered from a lack of air conditioning, and (3) the walk across to the main hotel for breakfast would have been more of a challenge if our stay hadn't coincided with that spell of good weather.

Breakfasts consisted of a good selection of cereals, fruit juices, yoghurts, croissants, pain au chocolat and fresh fruit with a range of cooked options available to order from the kitchen. The dining room was bright and never over-crowded, and the serving staff were friendly and efficient. We didn't take dinner in the hotel, so can't comment in that area.

Value for money was excellent as we had booked a discount deal through the Classic British Hotels website, giving us B&B for under £50 per night - a real bargain for such a comfortable hotel. We'd have no hesitation in recommending the Fosse Manor to anyone looking for a base in the area.

Room Tip: Rooms to the back face away from the main road (the Fosse Way) and will be quieter. The Coach House...

Stayed 2 nights on business,on arrival the reception was very friendly and helpful. Room was spacious and well equipped. The free wifi was very welcome as was the facility of a bath or a shower. Food was well prepared and had a good choice. The only issue was my room was opposite a cold store which staff opened by the noise around 0545. As it was a very hot and humid night I had to have the window open so I did get an unexpected early morning call also traffic noise was noticeable, To be fair the window did have secondary glazing and heavy curtains so I do not expect this will be an ongoing issue. Overall a very good hotel,good staff and for the Cotswolds good value.

I stayed at Fosse Manor, in a twin room with a large en-suite bathroom, for two nights to attend a wedding in The Hyde Barn. The Hyde Barn is in the hotel grounds and the wedding itself was absolutely lovely. The hotel is decorated and fitted in a modern, but very attractive and relaxing way - not too 'old world' and not too 'ultra modern' It's a beautiful stone building with large sash windows and the views over the surrounding countryside were lovely. The food at the hotel and at the wedding was excellent, but what makes this hotel stand out above others I have stayed in was the staff. They were a pleasure to be with - really friendly, but not overpowering. They were very attentive in a non-intrusive way and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is in a beautiful area and I didn't notice any traffic noise from my room which was number 5 on the first floor. One of the lovely staff was more than willing to help me up the stairs with my luggage. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
