“Best B & B”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

We have cause to visit relatives in the area because my wife comes from Gloucestershire. Unfortunately we live about four hours away in East Sussex and need to stay somewhere warm and comfortable when we visit. It has all been said by previous reviewers - Pretoria Villa and Glynis's breakfasts set the standard for others. We are always assured of a warm welcome and homely, unfussy attention to detail which makes for a delightful stay. This is unique B&B in a truly beautiful spot on th edge of a Cotswold village - go for it!

Room Tip: Room 2 is a twin, but could be a double if you ask Glynis!

I was on a half-work half-relaxing trip with my husband in the Stroud area. We were recommended Pretoria Villa by another B & B owner in the Cotswolds and we were not disappointed. The house and village are truly lovely. Glynis makes these extraordinary breakfasts and everything is kept beautifully. Dennis is a retired builder, so all the rooms are finished to a high standard. As they are both locals born and brought up, we were directed to scenic walks down a valley and around a lake. This was just what was needed after a really stressful period at work. Indeed - when I needed to do something work-wise, Glynis was really helpful, even though she had a lot to do. We had such a lovely time - I can't think of a single bad thing to say!

We stayed in England for 5 weeks, staying a week in 5 different B & B's. This B & B was the best of all. What made it so enjoyable was Glynis Solomon, the owner. There were 4 of us and we were in need of doing washing. She generously offered us use of her washing machine. We put our wine and beer in her fridge. She tried to meet our every need. The house is lovely, bedrooms all have ensuites. Everything is spotless. Chocolates and biscuits in your room. Every couple of days she changed our bedding, not just the sheets. We had our 83 year old mother with us and she offered to drive to and from the pub so mum would not have to walk. The only downside is finding it. Once you have found it you will enjoy your stay.

We were given a lovely bedroom with lots of cupboard areas and a large ensuite. Glynis provided us with biscuits and chocolates, as well as tea and coffee making facilities. Towels were warmed in the ensuite, and we were able to do our washing there. Glynis was a very friendly, obliging host. Breakfasts were excellent too. We were able to sit in the garden area, and there was also a guest sitting room. The only drawback was locating the house down a very narrow lane.

Room Tip: All of the rooms were lovely.

We stayed 2 nights at Pretoria Villa in September 2013. It is in a part of Eastcombe that has retained much of its rural charm with its stone cottages and narrow lanes. Although we arrived more or less unexpectedly, Glynis made us most welcome. We had the double bedroom which was bright with two windows, one onto the small parking area and one onto the garden. The en-suite shower and WC were spotless.

The breakfast was one of the best we have had. Glynis had prepared a marvellous selection of various fruits as well as cereals and a generous Full English.

This is our second visit to Pretoria Villa. Run by Mrs. Glynis Solomon it is by far the best B & B in which I have ever stayed. The rooms, all en suite, furnishings and attention to detail is all first class. nothing is too much trouble and the atmosphere extremely friendly.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent.
