“Great!”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Great hotel in walking distance to Burford town centre. Clean, tidy and well situated. Lovely staff, warm welcome, nothing too much trouble. Great restaurant with good menu choice and excellent food. Rooms clean and quaint, modern and adequate. Best breakfast we've had in any restaurant! Would recommend for couples and families and definitely be staying again!

Room Tip: Some rooms don't have great views - but it really didn't matter as the service was second to...

A great get away with incredibly friendly service.

The food was fantastic, the room lovely.

We were looked after really well, as a seasoned traveller this made such a difference.

We have stayed at dog friendly hotels before, but the attention she received was also spectacular.

Will stay again when the opportunity arises

Had a amazing stay here. Really nice rooms, good food but what really set this hotel above the standard was the fantastic service.
They were more than happy to help with any request. Dropping us off at the wedding to save us a taxis fare, making us breakfast rolls to eat in bed. Thank you, great stay. :)

It is wonderful after a long day traveling to turn up at a hotel and get a warm welcome, like you would get fro your own family. This is the way I was welcomed at the Cotswold Gateway, this time and every time I have stayed here before. All the staff are very friendly, the accommodation very clean and food is fantastic. This is a great hotel for holidays, business or a meal and a few drinks.

Just back from a lovely weekend in the Cotswolds. We were a family of 7 celebrating my Dads 70th Birthday. We stayed 1 night at the Gateway and had an excellent time. The staff were really helpful from the moment we called to book the rooms right through till the end of our stay. This included some special arrangements which were all sorted out just as we had asked for. On Saturday evening we dined there and the food and service were exemplary. The choice on the menu is extensive but not too daunting and we each had different main courses and all were delicious. It seemed to me that this type of service would not be possible in a chain which is one of the advantages of staying at a privately owned hotel.

As soon as we walked through the door for our short weekend break in the Cotswolds we received a warm and friendly welcome at the characterful Gateway. The room was clean , well appointed and of a very good size. Despite the A40 traffic passing close by , traffic noise was minimal and no problem due to the efficient double glazing and thick walls . Food was very good and service was friendly and efficient . The hotel had a really good atmosphere . One of few remaining family run hotels of this size it really showed in the no fuss, friendly service provided by management and staff at all levels. Criticism? Maybe the wifi could be a little better outside public area but we were aware of this when booking and wouldn't complain. Would definitely recommend and hope to return . Well done management and staff and long may you keep your independence !

My husband arranged a week away at this hotel as part of my 50th birthday present.
I was not disappointed, this hotel is a real Gem.
The staff are amazing, they are polite and courteous and the level of service is far superior to many of the 5* hotels we have stayed in.
Dinner on both nights was to an extremely high standard, excellent and varied menu and reasonably priced.
Breakfast is buffet style and again has an excellence choice and all cooked to perfection.
Our room was on the second floor and was very spacious and beautifully decorated.
The cleanliness of this hotel was second to none. not a speck of dust anywhere.
A very relaxing break, in excellent surroundings. The perfect getaway.
We will definitely be returning to this hotel.
Any one looking for a short weekend break this hotel is a must.
