As you can see from my profile we travel a lot to different cities/types of hotels/holidays and I give honest reviews. It is difficult for me to write badly about places but I would avoid this place at all costs. We booked this hotel as we are foodies and we were travelling up to the cotswolds and thought this looked ideal. I noticed mixed reviews but thought we'd give it a go, big mistake. We walked through to check in were there is slightly inappropriate art on the walls for such an open area. We were early so weren't expecting our rooms to be ready we just wanted to leave our luggage as we were going into bath and didn't want the luggage in the car. As we were waiting people were checking out and complaining. I asked to leave our luggage and it was left just in the hall for all to see, not very secure. On our return I had to ask for help with the luggage and we were shown to a building separate from the main building. This building is calling out for attention. It could be nice but it looks like someone has forgotten to finish the outside area, as there are doors leading to the outside area from the ground floor rooms it would be nice to use these to their advantage. The rooms are filthy. My husbands insulin pen rolled off the bedside table under the bed, I wish I hadn't had to move the furniture to retrieve it. The light shades are the ones that are closed in, only use these if you are going to clean them, they were disgusting. The bathroom shower had an empty shampoo bottle placed on the door ledge, not even the shampoo that they supply, god knows how long it had been there. We booked dinner with big expectations because on the name associated with this hotel. We sat in the bar for a drink before hand which was pleasant our son loved the pool tables! We went to check in for dinner to be told go to the bar I will collect you from there, I explained we had just come from there but she was insistent that our table wasn't ready. The menu was not very imaginative and if you were staying for more that one night it would be boring. My jacket had to go over my chair as no one offered to take it, I didn't notice until I was packing my jacket away that the cuff on one side was filthy from where it had been touching the floor! Food was ok, limited wine list and the one we wanted they didn't have. Breakfast was ok. We were pleased to check out.
