“Exquisite and Amazing Dormy House!”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

Just returned after an overnight stay at the amazing Dormy House in the beautiful Cotswolds. This hotel is the most relaxing place to stay you could ever wish for. The bedrooms are amazing from the extremely comfortable bed to the exquisite contemporary bathroom with the delightful Temple Spa toiletries. We opted to eat in the Barn Owl which was fabulous particularly the baked Camembert infused with rosemary and garlic, the delicious crime brûlée with fruit cake flavoured icecream yummy! all served by caring and attentive staff all of whom are professional and a credit to the management team. After a peaceful night's sleep you are greeted with a delightful breakfast in the relaxing dining room. Decided to take up the opportunity of following one of the Dormy House Walks which was fab and then on our return opted to have an afternoon cream tea which was a sheer delight, as we were served with the best carrot cake we had ever tasted and then the fresh fruit tart and light warm scones with lashings of clotted cream and organic jam. This hotel is one of the best and may it continue to rank as such for ever more. Thank you all for a fabulous weekend, we will most definitely return soon, saving as we speak. Do not hesitate book today.....

Having just looked at the Dormy House for a possible stay with my wife,I decided that I'd review my stays here.

I have stayed on numerous occasions over the years,always for corporate dinners and overnight stays.

I can recommend the Dormy House as a hotel for special ocassions,or just a treat.Their food has always been worthy of special mention,Michelin starred it isn't,but could never understand how their ratings work anyway?because the Dormy is long overdue this sort of recognition.
Their rooms are always smart ,well furnished,and comfortable.

Certainly one of the best hotels in this area,I would say?not particularly cheap but good things never are.You still get what you pay for.
And if you like quality,high standards and great food and wine then you won't be disapointed with this hotel.
Other reviewers echo my opinion to a T.

That's really not an understatement - we have stayed there 3 times now and I just wish she could go more often! We have stayed in a room with a Four Poster bed - which made me laugh as it was so high I needed a little step stool to get onto it and also in the Suite - both of which are beautiful. The food is out of this world and the best we have ever had within a hotel environment. We've booked the Romantic break - with champagne and home made chocolates and also the Great Escape rate - which includes Dinner, Bed and Breakfast. We always eat in the restaurant, rather than the Barn Owl "pub" type area. The staff are all friendly, efficient and extremely helpful - they actually seem to enjoy working at Dormy House. All in all, a great experience, try their afternoon tea by the roaring fire for an extra-special treat!

We have stayed at the Dormy House Hotel on countless occasions now, and the moment we pull into the car park, it feels as though we've escaped the rat race. I'm almost loathe to write this review for fear of the hotel being discovered by even more folk and being fuill when we want to come and relax!

From the elegant, contemporary but comfortable decor and furnishings to the welcoming staff and the beautiful bedrooms, this hotel is a slice of heaven for us, two semi-frazzled working parents. During our various stays, we've eaten in the Dining Room as well as the Barn Owl Bar, but prefer the latter as, although the atomosphere is more informal, the food is of the same superb quality as the more formal restaurant. Breakfast is always delicious, in fact, breakfast at the Dormy is among the best we've ever tasted.

The hotel isn't cheap, but our recommendation would be to take advantage of the Great Escape rate, which includes dinner, bed and breakfast. As we've visited a few times, when we call to check on availability, we always ask if it's the best rate and sometimes, you can bag yourself a bargain as they'd much rather have people staying than a empty room, even if it's cheaper than the rate they advertise.

We wouldn't class ourselves as particularly picky, but we've discovered that most hotels and B&Bs tend to have their faults, even if you're not looking for them - whether it's a faulty plug socket, a TV that doesn't work, a leaking sink or the odd member of snotty staff, but in all our visits to the Dormy (probably 5 or 6 now), we've never come across anything that's been substandard in any of the rooms we've stayed in.

As our family is due a new addition in the coming months, I suspect it will be a while before we can get back, but I'm already looking forward to our next stay.

This was our second visit to Dormy Hotel and once again we enjoyed a lovely restful break in the English countryside. We ate dinner in the a la carte restaurant which serves some really special meals. Their staff are perfectly attentive without being over bearing allowing you to relax and enjoy the experience. The beds are so comfortable and rooms have everything you need.

a beautiful hotel in a fabulous location, rooms and guest cottages were well appointed and well presented. the rooms are modern and stylish, although only 2 channels worked on TV, when i asked if this could be looked, i was told twice it would be but it didnt. Food was OK, not great, what concerns me most about this hotel was the really rather uninterested and unfriendly staff. For a country house hotel to work really well, it should always be about the staff, how they welcome you, how they interact and of course the overall service. I am afraid that all were, in my view, lacking.
