My wife had a short Cotswold break, with a night in Woodstock and a night in Broadway. The hotel is quite pretty looking in a great setting. The room number 26 which we were given was not quite up to scratch. It was very cramped with twin beds when really there was only enough room for one, it was also very tatty and tired, even a torn curtain. The plumbing was was more than suspect with a blocked sink and faulty toilet and even worse scalding hot water one other thing we stayed when the weather was quite warm, but still the radiators were on full bore during the night which of coarse was quite uncomfortable.
The restaurat was generally ok and the staff were very attentive trouble was i had what was probably the smallest rib eye in the world and it had to be sent back as it was totally over cooked.
The night before we stayed at the Bear Woodstock which was fabulous and only put the Broadway in a much lower league.
One last point the advertised photographs were slighty misleading.

The hotel is a beautiful old building with many of its original features - low ceilings, squeeky floorboards etc. The village was also very beautiful - and has enough there for you to mosey around for a day or two.

The only complaint we had was the bathroom - unfortunately it was not very clean and was very tired. Lovely to see accessories such as Molton Brown - however money would be better spent on a re-fit. Other than that - was lovely

We spent a lovely one night break at this hotel via their £150 deal for DBB for two for one night.
Because it was sunny they gave us half a bottle of Moet and Chandon which we enjoyed outside at about 5pm on the front terrace. As the lovely waiter joked this was better than the "if it was raining" deal of an umbrella!
The meal at night was really good with scallops and sea bass being my favourite.The cheese and biscuits option was the best presented I have ever come across.
The breakfast was so good with the berry compote really scoring top points and mitigated against our indulgence in the cooked breakfast.
The room was perfectly formed and a real quiet sleep.

My wife and I recently spent 2 nights at the Broadway Hotel for a relaxing weekend break, just the 2 of us.

We visit the Cotswolds annually and this was our first time at the hotel and the town, both matched our hopes and expectations.

Our reception when we arrived was pleasant and courteous and we were quickly shown to our room ; Room 6, which was a double, in the original building, overlooking the courtyard. Very comfortable, not huge but big enough and with a lot of character. One quirky feature was the sink was in the bedroom while the bathroom housed the bath/shower and toilet.

A couple of hours were enough to amble around the town, there are many small shops to browse around, a pub at the top end of town and one at the bottom end, although some of the restaurants and hotels (including the Broadway itself) served food and alcohol some with seating outside.

Early evening was spent sat outside our own hotel, watching the town pass by. Service at the bar was relaxed, but that’s what we wanted, we were escaping from the rat race for a chilled weekend so we were in no hurry.

An evening meal at the local Indian didn’t rate highly but a couple of nightcaps in the cozy hotel bar rounded off a pleasant start to a quiet weekend.

Breakfast was plentiful and again the service was courteous, without being overbearing.

We enjoy a walk and the hotel loaned us a copy of their guide book which took us from the town up to the Broadway Tower. As expected the countryside was beautiful and the Tower itself was worth the climb. This walk was relatively short at 5 miles and we were back in the town by lunchtime. Another wander around the shops before lunch at the Crown and Trumpet, a typically old world charm Cotswold Inn.

We ate dinner at the hotel, the food was great, the service was very good and we enjoyed a very pleasant evening. A return trip to the Crown and Trumpet which had live music was an unexpected surprise with the whole pub enjoying a sing-along, maybe not everyone’s cup of tea but we certainly joined in. Great evening which certainly capped a thoroughly enjoyable, short break.

We would definitely return to the hotel and Broadway. The hotel is picture postcard, comfortable and value for money. The staff were young, local and very courteous, during our stay and they were a credit to the hotel. The town might be on the smaller side for us but we enjoyed it none the less.

Just enjoyed a stay at the picturesque Broadway Hotel, nicely located in a beautiful little village.
Plenty of parking spaces available in the hotel's car park.
We stayed in Room 21, a superior room with four poster bed.
Spacious room, with everything you needed and has a lovely view to the rear of hotel, overlooking garden and church, very pretty.
Nicely decorated but if I wanted to be picky, it could do with a touch up lick of paint here and there as you'd generally find with most hotel rooms. It was clean though and the bed and pillows very comfortable.
Powerful shower, with plenty of hot water. Nice big bottles of Molton Brown toiletries to use.
Staff were all very polite, attentive and nothing too much trouble for any of them. They were very friendly and pleasant at check-in and out . I found the staff very helpful when I made the booking direct and response via email was excellent.
Restaurant food was good and nicely presented. I felt the restaurant itself was a bit quiet and needed some soft background music really. Large wine list with reasonable prices .

My husband and I have just returned from a four night stay at the Broadway Hotel. Wanting a last-minute get-away, we found the hotel in a magazine and contacted staff directly to see if they could offer any last minute deals. We were offered a superior double room for £90 per night incl. breakfast. The hotel looked picture-perfect from the outside and we couldn't wait to get inside. We had to wait about 5 minutes before anybody noticed we were at reception but when we were dealt with, staff were welcoming and friendly. We were given the Abbots room on the first floor, which is at the front of the hotel, overlooking the green and village street. The room itself was a very good size and clean. It had its own hallway which led off into a separate bathroom and the bedroom. Yes, the decor was traditional and old fashioned, but all in keeping with the style of the hotel and made it very cosy. If you are looking for somewhere ultra modern with plasma TVs and the minimalist approach etc, then I suggest you look somewhere else. However, it did have a 20" LCD TV in the bedroom.
The Molton Brown toiletries in the bathroom were a very welcome addition to our stay. You could use them free of charge and were also available to buy from the hotel if you wanted to take some home with you. A major letdown, however, was the electric shower. The pressure and water flow was dreadful...more like a piddle! We had to spend twice as long in there than we normally would. Breakfast each morning was very good and service was excellent. A plentiful supply of cereals, fruit juices, pastries and a menu offering cooked food. My husband had the cooked breakfast every morning and said it was excellent, the portion size being well judged. We also sampled the food in the Jockey Bar one eveing. I had gammon and my husband had the chicken and leek pie. Again, it was very delicious and very reasonably priced compared to a lot of places we tried. Another slight issue we found was the hotel car park to the rear. It is quite a big, secure car park with a barrier that you are given the code for. On our arrival, it appeared a bit of a god send, as parking in Broadway village is not very good. However, one day we returned from a daytrip to find the hotel car park was completely full. I don't think the hotel was full with residents and can only presume that the space was taken by local drinkers who frequented the bar at the hotel. And finally...the Abbots room was directly above the hotel's small Jockey Bar. The noise from downstairs travelled quite easily and was quite loud one particular evening when there were local drinkers in who were obviously quite merry. This didn't bother us too much as we don't tend to go to sleep until gone midnight and the noise stopped at around 11-11.30pm. But if you like an early night and are a light sleeper, I wouldn't recommend this room. All in all we had a very pleasant stay at the Broadway and I would recommend it.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights. We had booked the 'Abbots room' which is a large 'feature' room on the front overlooking the green and high street. The room was wonderful and the the view great. Breakfast was good and local produce used. Would have tried the bar/restaurant meals but put off by the wine list starting at £17 a bottle. Went across the road to the ‘Broadway Brasserie' just past the grocers shop on the corner, and down the side street. We had two wonderful meals here. Its smart, friendly and a reasonable price. The village is so typically English with wonderful architecture; it would be difficult to beat.
Plenty of places to eat and drink. It was fine now, no queues,(Feb) but I would be cautious visiting in the summer. Yes a wonderful hotel, lovely room and would recommend Broadway as a location without hesitation.
