“Worth travelling those extra few miles..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2012

A stopover one night stay, there was a family party when I arrived, but still managed to make sure I was 'seen to'.Nice lawned grounds to the property. Lovely room with a nice flatscreen telly (only problem for me was the flat pillows - a few cobwebs, bit of dust/spiders, just marked down a little for that). The decor matches the pub, and is absolutely 'in keeping with the place'. Great hosts and lovely bar staff. Great menu and meals with a packed restaurant. Clearly a very popular local 'eaterie'. The lasagne I had was probably the best I've tasted even better than in the best Italian Restaurants! Breakfast also was one of the best I've had anywhere else in the country in recent times, and served with a smile too by the lady owner! Very friendly, very welcoming, very, good value. When in the area again, I would definately go back there.

Lovely, comfortable and clean rooms- but best of all was the service from the family who run the Houndshill- welcoming, generous and friendly. The delicious home made food just topped it off. A traditional English pub in a beautiful setting- would recommend to anyone!

We stayed two nights last weekend, received a warm welcome, and shown to our clean room, but probably last decorated when woodchip wallpaper was the vogue. We had a light but good breakfast both days but had the dinner only on the first night. The food was good but items claimed to be home made, were perhaps merely home cooked, i.e steak and kidney pie. It is a budget hotel at a budget price. Bar prices average and selection good. Top shelf excellent. There was a private party on the Saturday, quite noisy, but in room 1 we heard nothing. These old buildings are much more soundproof.Overall I would reccomend this hotel for a short stay.

Room Tip: if you want a twin ask for room 1

I would definitely recommend this hotel. About 4 miles from Stratford-on-Avon. The setting is beautiful, absolute bliss. Andy & Elaine are great hosts & very welcoming. Our room was lovely & clean, great view across the garden. Relaxing and peaceful. Varied menu & the food was cooked to perfection. Looking forward to a return visit.

We recently went with friends to the Houndshill Restaurant, it was excellent. We have eaten there before and the food is always fantastic. The Staff, especially the owner, Andy is fun and always attentive making sure the food is to a very high standard. I recommend the curry by the way, its wonderful.
We have never stayed there but if the rooms are as good as the food I'm sure it wouldn't disappoint. The setting is wonderful, in the open countryside with lovely views.
Well done Andy and Elaine for making this a lovely place to spend an evening.

We have used the Hounds Hill Hotel over many years when we have been in the area on business as well as several family visits. We have have always found this a very friendly family run hotel, bar and restaurant that offer excellent traditional food and specials menu with good local beers all in a relaxed atmosphere.

A good traditional hotel that represents great value for money ,

Room Tip: Most rooms overlook the woods and you can see some wildlife deer etc early morning

The Houndshill is an excellent place to stop off for a meal. With 'specials' a.on offer together with the more traditional, all are freshly served by the friendly owners.
