“Couldn't Serve Us”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

we dropped in for an afternoon cream tea - nice garden and not very busy. Went t find waiting staff and was told in reception that there was nobody else available and they were 'too busy'! Unbelievable!

I had never been to the Cotswolds, and this hotel (which I would classify more as a B&B) was exactly what I wanted. My room was very comfortable with a great view of the front garden and the town square beyond. The place is old but well-kept, with the right balance of uneven floors and low thresholds with good water pressure and Internet access to please a traveler looking for a quaint Cotswolds experience while retaining certain luxuries. I enjoyed easy access to the town's shops while leaving my car unused in the hotel's parking lot conveniently tucked out of sight behind the property. I was glad for the town's convenient location for exploring the area. I found myself visiting the neighboring church and cemetery daily during my stay, it was so beautiful! The lilacs were blooming in the hotel's garden and I had the impression there would be something beautiful to see during any season. The staff was very quirky, but I liked everyone I met. I have to agree with a prior reviewer that the staff, however, was completely not helpful when it came to recommending alternative places to eat in the community... this to me is a poor policy, and is the only thing about my stay that leaves me unhappy with my experience there. The hotel's restaurant was very good, but I preferred eating in the hotel's bar and the bar menu to that of the restaurant. Breakfast was very nice, and the choices were varied. During the colder months, I imagine the fireplace in the lounge must be quite nice. Definitely consider staying here!

For £150 for a double room for one night I expected more. Having stayed in many hotels and B&B's I think this was very expensive for what you got. The room was perfectly adequate but was at the top of the house with a very small window which meant you had to have the light on even though it was sunshine outside.

The hotel is slightly old fashioned with sheets and blankets on the bed rather than duvets, they seem to cater more for the mature guest, we are in our mid forties and were the youngest there by some way.

However the grounds and location are lovely and the breakfast was good.

We've been here several times and just LOVE it. It's perfectly located to explore the Cotswolds, right in the middle of Stow but set back from the town square in beautifully kept gardens which make it so peaceful. All of the staff are friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. It has a comfy lounge with a lovely open fire, a cosy bar area and a pleasant restaurant with delicious breakfasts. The bedrooms are roomy and comfortable and the huge white fluffy bath towels are a treat. The whole hotel is spotlessly clean. If you don't want to eat in the hotel - the food is great btw - Stow has several great pubs and restaurants to choose from. A fabulous hotel in a lovely market town. Totally recommend this hotel.

Just back from a 2 night break at the Stow Lodge, and had a wonderful time. We stayed in the Chalet Suite, a little bungalow in the gorgeous hotel gardens. Very comfortable beds, 2 leather recliners, a large flat screen TV, separate dressing room, large bathroom and an outside area with our own garden table and chairs. The staff were friendly and helpful, and breakfast was very good. Very sad to leave!

Room Tip: Room 30 (the Chalet Suite) was lovely. Separate from the rest of the hotel, overlooking the garden...

We have been using this hotel for 28 years and have always been completely satisfied with our stays. If u want modern and boutique hotels stay away! It is olde worlde cosy and comfortable. Spotlessly clean. Ee stayed in a room in the coach house it was lovely. The bathrooms were clean and have been updated since our last visit . The food was lovely freshly cooked nicely presented english food. Theres only one place for us to stay when visiting Stow and thats Stow Lodge!!!
