Reviewed 21 November 2009

We booked the Ormand in preference to the neighbouring hotel which clearly lives up to its name !
By contrast the hotel made our group very welcome; valet parking the cars whilst we unloaded our luggage into reception following our early arrival. Later that day we returned to find all luggage transfered to our rooms and that upon departure, the next day, the same luggage management was applied in reverse.
The rooms were very nicely furnished with comtempoary art and pictures amd flat screen TVs.
Dinner was excellent, compiled of fresh local produce and breakfast too.
We had two dogs as part of the party which were made welcome and for which the hotel applied a small charge.
A credit to British Tourism well done
Oh by the way we paid nearly half of the rate offered by the "other" hotel !!

Good location right in the centre of Tetbury - handy for Westonbirt, Badminton etc.
Pets were genuinely welcome - well behaved, of course, and were allowed everywhere except the restaurant. I took my dog as I was on a walking tour with a group of friends.
My room was very comfortable and adequately sized, but the bathroom could have used a few improvements - another towel rail and the shower screen leaked, making the floor wet.
No parking at the hotel, but staff were very helpful in finding parking for cars - even offering a valet service !
Food was excellent - good choice and good value, and has recently won several awards.
The hotel was still undergoing some minor renovation, but this did not interfere with the enjoyment of our stay.
Lively bar frequented by locals and visitors alike, made especially busy at lunch time by an "Express Lunch" offer of 2 courses for £10.
Would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good base in the area without having to take out a second mortgage.

we stayed here with our two children to visit Westonbirt Arboretum . The hotel is right in the centre of the town which is great and we were welcomed by the owner who couldn't have been more charming, he really went out of his way to settle us in and they had put a box of toys out for the youngest. The room was large with a gorgeous sleigh bed and fantastic wallpaper with flamingoes! All very tastefully decorated with big tv and very generous modern bathroom. Great biscuits too.

We ate on both nights and really enjoyed the food, the menu changed on the second night which we liked, the kids menu wasn't very extensive but the homemade cottage pie was delicious. The very friendly waitress Slyvia was fantastic , so helpful and attentive, she told us that they had just won another award for their food and I can certainly see why. We also had a cream tea which came as part of our package, I wouldn't normally order that but what a treat it was.

Overall I would certainly recommend this place to other travellers, they were so attentive and it's obviously popular as it was busy all through our stay.

Hotel room badly in need of redecoration. No towel rail in one! Noisy party outside in courtyard keeping us awake until 1am which ruined our whole weekend.
Definitely would not return and not worth the money.

This was our first visit to the Cotswolds and finding 'The Ormond at Tetbury' was an truly wonderful experience. Its location for exploring the area is unequalled, so close to the home of Prince Charles we half expected to see him. Our room was as good as any 4 star plus we have ever stayed in. The dining room is a 'must' - we could understand why it has won awards. The hotel has buckets of charm. The biggest surprise were the room rates - seriously good value for money. It is easy to see this is a privately owned and managed hotel, it has that added ingredient to make a stay perfect! The Cotswolds plus The Ormond - England at its very best!

Stayed at The ormond after reading good reviews, but very disappointed. Booked a stable room althoughbathroom smart and large tv, room had been renovated on the cheap smealt damp and had a broken lampshade. Asked for a different room was told could come down to executive room but would not get a refund. Room was mix of tatty furniture and new, corridors were dark, shabby and carpet were soiled and very unpleasant. Spare mattress and beds stored on landing. Staff unpleasant and unhelpful. The one redeeming feature was the linens and towels were wonderfully white and towels fluffy. Not sure if they are doing a refubishment but need some help perhaps taking on board a designed.
