“Our wonderful 'home from home' break.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2013

We are fortunate enough to have stayed here almost 10 times over the last few years. Why do we keep coming back? It is simply wonderful. The rooms are spacious, stylish and very comfortable. The public rooms are relaxing with views over the lovely grounds.

The food in the Beaufort restaurant is fine dining, and although the portions are not huge there are so many 'extras' that we have always left the table feeling very well fed and having enjoyed the superb food. The breakfasts are always delicious and cooked to order.

One of the hotel's great strengths is the service and quality of the staff. Nothing is too much trouble and they are professional yet warm and friendly. Restaurant service is smooth, attentive and efficient.

We enjoy all aspects of our visits and hope to return many more times. We have recommended the hotel to several friends who have been equally impressed.

We just spent one night there in July 2013, and it really is a fantastic hotel, the staff are all very friendly and the food is very good too. Lovely place to escape the rat race and unwind and explore the lovely Cotswolds. Its nice to see a hotel provide quality products and attention to detail, the bread and toast at breakfast was delish!

We wish we could have stayed longer....

This was our 3rd visit to the Hare & Hounds and we had another amazing stay. The hotel itself is beautiful, set in a fantastic location. Service is always exceptional from reception to bar staff! We had a fabulous meal in the evening, service was slower than usual but there was a wedding on as well which explains why. Food was delicious! Room was spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished as they always are. Complimentary turn down service was a nice touch! Treat yourself and book in!

What can I say, if you are looking for a great hotel, with fab service, out of this world food in a fantastic location then this is the place to stay.

i went with three friends for the May bank holiday on the secret escapes deal which was exceptional value for money! On our arrival we were all upgraded (complimentary) to junior suites which were fantastic, huge and beautifully furnished!! We ate at the Jack's bar the first evening as the place we identified in tetbury were not taking bookings that evening as they had a concert. The hotel accommodated our last minute booking with ease and we had four huge burgers washed down with three bottles of wine!! For a simple bar the food was great and the atmosphere was just as a good!!

The second night we had a booking in the restaurant for a 4 course meal which was part of the secret escapes deal and it far exceeded any of our expectations!! The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and the service could not have been better!! The staff were all friendly and simply could not do enough. As for the food, i have to say the main meal (i had the beef) was one of the best meals I have ever had!!! it really was an experience!!

As for breakfast it was tasty and a good size, there was plenty of choice. The hotel itself and the grounds are beautiful and typically english in style!!! The area of tetbury itself is also very picturesque and there is plenty do especially with it being so close to bath which we also visited during our stay.

Overall we had a fantastic experience at a really outstanding place and I cannot wait to return in the future :)

Visited the Hare and Hounds on business trip for 5 days, beautiful location and grounds. All the expected touches you would want from a quality hotel. But 2 things need special mention - I needed some sun cream one day for an outside event (yes, the sun was shining!) and the receptionist that day went "above and beyond" to find some for me. Very appreciated. But the star of the hotel was Lenko, one of the waitresses. She was just outstanding in every aspect - attentive but not overbearing, social but not imposing, personable but not over familiar. Her welcome, smile and general attitude was exemplary. Of course, you expect the certain touches of a hotel like this, after all, that is what you are paying for, but no matter how good the management is it's the "front of house" that makes the difference and these 2 factors make the place for me. A bit annoying is the "walkin wi-fi" service, poor speed and the constant disconnects became frustrating. I could find many of the same touches elsewhere, but it would be for the "Lenko" factor I would return.

Room Tip: I was in room 34 main location and the shower was very slow and noisy - maybe check for a lower/diff...

Thank you very much for taking time out of your busy schedule to write a review of your recent stay with us at the Hare and Hounds. It is always so good for individual members of the team to get a 'mention', though they are all stars in their own way. Lenka is absolutely delighted that she was able to make such a big contribution to the quality of your experience, and you won't be surprised to hear that she was also the owner of the owner of the sun cream.
We all hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the hotel again in the future.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of the Hare and Hounds. It is good to know that our popular small hotel group is sriking the right notes with you. I apologise if you found the food less than excellent upon your last visit. The kitchen team has not changed so I am disappointed to hear that, but appreciate your feedback.

Excellent stay, comfortable rooms, good facilities, outstanding restaurant and service, and only one complaint. Box mattress on the bed very uncomfortable, and could benefit from a "topper". Otherwise outstanding. Very convenient location for Highgrove visits; 2 minutes away.
