We stayed in room 1. Which is a superior room overlooking the road. I was worried that it would be noisy; but at the time of booking Donna assured me that it wouldn't be and it wasn't. This is a characterful room with some exposed Cotswold stone. Plenty of storage and an Iron and ironing board in the wardrobe. There was tea and coffee making faciltites, bottled water and a small selection of fresh fruit in the fridge. The bathroom was a decent size and had a bath with a shower over. There was a fully enclosed shower screen, so there were no leaks. Shower pressure was typical of many hotels, by that I mean that it was acceptable but no full power shower pressure. Everything was spotlessly clean. If I was being super critcal I would have to say that the bed sagged a little and the extractor fan didn't work in the bathroom.
The breakfast was very good and the selection of fresh fruit truly impressive. Lots of choice of fruit juice.
The service was pleasant but unobstrusive. I would definitely stay here again.
We stayed for a weekend. For a small place, there are lots of places to eat in Chipping Campden but be warned, it is London prices. On the first night we ate at Michael's and is cost around £75 for 2. This consisted of a bottle of wine, water, the meze for 2 (at £25 each) and Greek coffee. Very nice meal, the meze would easily have served 3, we didn't finish it and I have probably never felt so full. There is a very pretty garden/patio where you can eat outside.
On the second night we ate at Caminetto. My seabass was good but we waited a very long time (1 hour and 15 mins) to be shown to our table. This place was full of locals who praised the food highly and didn't seem to mind the wait.
