Burford is a picture postcard village & makes a lovely place to stay & visit the Cotswolds. Bay Tree Hotel is stunning from outside with wisteria covering the walls. This was my 2nd visit to this hotel. Stayed in the Tanfield which has it's own entrance. Not sure the room
Had been hoovered!
A suite with front room featuring an open fire which was really cozy. Stone floor and real old charm character. Great for the dogs but can imagine in the winter could be cold as in August it was a bit nippy. Lovely garden. Staff here are just fantastic. Friendly, helpful and really make the stay enjoyable. Dog friendly in the bar and drawing room. Breakfast offers a large selection and is good however it came out cold. They say wifi in hotel but was very difficult to get a service. Overall wonderful place and would
Recommend.

Stayed for a wedding and had a lovely time, my room (Asthall) was fairly small but well set out and felt cosy rather than cramped, all very comfortable and quiet. Very friendly and helpful staff and absolutely lovely in the garden in the summer. Ideal for a quiet weekend. Only ate there for breakfast but was all very good - give the full english a go.

We had our wedding here on the 19th of July and had the most wonderful day! The staff could not do enough for us and worked non-stop throughout the day to make sure everyone was happy. Poor Mark even stayed up until nearly 5am to accommodate the people who wanted to keep the party going, which was quite a few of us! All of the little details were taken care of meaning we had very little to worry about except enjoy our day! We have had non-stop compliments since then from our guests saying the day was perfect with special compliments regarding Mark and the food! If you are considering this hotel for your wedding just do it, you wont be sorry! To give you an idea I heard a few days ago that the day after our wedding one of my guests came across a couple who were considering this hotel for their wedding and she spent time telling them about how great the day before had been!! Thank you Mark, Maureen and the rest of the staff at the Bay Tree for a day we will never forget!

We booked 2 suites at this old world hotel in the lovely village of Burford. We had "Old Justice" and "Tanfield", both ground level external to the main hotel building. The in-laws were delighted with the large living area and old world fireplace in Tanfield. The hotel has a lovely garden below the dining room. If you are looking for new world accommodation this is not for you. However if you want something old world with irregular shaped rooms, creaking floor boards and with nooks and crannies, character and on a complex with rooms internal and external to the main building this is a great place to stay. For any Inspector Morse fans there was even a death opposite the hotel, the episode A Remorseful Day if my memory serves me correctly. Downside to the old world charm is that anyone with a mobility problem may find the split levels, ever present steps and external slopes a little difficult to cope with. I walk with a stick and managed the two steps down into Old Justice. Reception also has a narrow, stepped entrance. The dining room into the garden via a patio has the same impediment if you have mobility difficulties. Something to think about if that affects you. Our stay was very enjoyable. Staff were attentive and thankfully the bar had real ale on. I'd happily use this hotel again.

Room Tip: Tanfield had a much bigger bed than the very old quaint four poster in Old Justice.

The hotel is a lovely 16th century structure on a quiet street in the charming Cotswold village of Burford, The staff were very courteous, efficient, and eager to make your stay at the hotel a delightful experience. The food and service were outstanding, and the bedroom was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The dining room overlooks a well-tended garden, which provides a nice setting for cocktails on a fine day. The bar area was very comfortable and yet still maintained its old world charm. Overall our stay at this hotel was a celightful experience and will return for another visit the next time we return to the Cotswolds.

We held our wedding here on 15th June. We have used this hotel many times so we knew how good it was. Cannot praise the staff enough they made the day run very smoothly. All our guests loved the day, the food and their stayover. We had the best wedding day that we could imagine and thanks to Maureen, Mark & Luke for all their help at the hotel.

we held the wediing for our daughter here last weekend and i can't praise the hotel staff enough. The day was majical and i couldn't fault anything. The sun smiled on us, the staff were helpful and friendly , all ran smoothly, food great and nothing was too much hassle .The bride and groom and i were all very chilled and our guests all loved it. we stayed the night before the wedding as well and sat in the lovely garden drinking lots of Pimms. We were allowed candles, sparkles and a fire bowl and games in the garden . There was another wedding the next day but no one made us feel like we had to rush to leave . Absolutely 5 star .
every one said their room was good and the bed was comfy, nice pillows and big fluffy towels. Very quaint and full of character and we had a lot of american guests who absolutely loved it.

Room Tip: we stayed in the Tanfield which was very cute, overlooks the road but quiet with a separate sitting...
