Visited the Bay Tree on a 2 for 1 offer staying in a master suite, £275 for 2 nights B&B which included dinner one evening. Check in is at 2pm but on arrival at 2.30pm our room wasn't ready. It would have been nice to have been offered complimentary coffee but this was not to be! On check in we were taken to the 'Oak' suite. This was extremely spacious with seating area and TV in the main bedroom and then a separate lounge area with TV. For the size of the room it is a real shame to see a standard double four poster inside - a king size or super kingsize would be so much better and the space would certainly allow for this. Good range of rea/coffee making facilities including Nespresso machine. Nice bathroom with whirlpool bath.
Our meal in the restaurant was very nice and staff attentive throughout. Although we have seen reviews reporting poor breakfast quality ours were very good with no complaints. Our second night we sampled food in the bar and again this was very good.
Sleep quality, or the distinct lack if it, is the reason we would definitely not return to this hotel. The bed, whilst quaint, creaks to high heaven. It is quite obvious that no one from the hotel has ever sat on or laid on this bed. Also, as a previous reviewer has mentioned the floorboards are appalling. We thought it may have been staff rooms above ours given the constant creaking of floorboards throughout the night and the sound of the TV from 6.30am but it was another guest room!
Overall a nice break in the Cotswolds but we certainly didn't leave The Bay Tree feeling rested. It could be so good with just a few tweaks. Sadly we left more than a little disappointed!!
