We spent 3 1/2 weeks in the UK, starting with Stow-In-The-Wold at the Stow Lodge Hotel. The staff is friendly, kind and extremely helpful. The hotel is right on the village square.
I always like it when reviewers tell what rooms they had. We had room 8 and our friends had room 10. Both were in the original part of the hotel on the second floor over looking the church and the old grave yard. (In most of Europe this would be considered the first floor, but being from the states, we call it the second floor). The rooms and the entire hotel are clean and well cared for.
We were skeptical about dinner so we planned on only the first night. Everything was so good and the presentation so perfect, we changed to the Dinner, Bed and Breakfast plan and ate in the hotel dining room all four nights we were there. (Although I would not order the steak again. Way over done for my tastes). Breakfasts were unbelievably hearty and very good.
We especially enjoyed the lounge before dinner and coffee in the lounge after dinner. All the other guests were friendly and talkative, not like so many other B&Bs. I believe this is because they all felt the same as we, the experience could not be beat.
The only problem the oldest member of our party had was getting in and out of the tub/shower. A note to the hotel: Add additional hand holds for us "older folks".
Would we go back? Absolutely. Would we recommend the hotel to others? Without question.
