“What a find!”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

We found the Egypt Mill purely by chance, but what a find.
The staff are absolutely excellent to start off with. The location is great - it is quite literally just off the A46 which is a main road - and it's well signposted.
We booked in advance, and we received an email saying that there was a charity ball organised for ther night of our stay and there would be excessive noise. We decided to continue with the stay anyway and it was well worth it. The building itself is an old mill that has been restored sympathetically, to an exceptionally high standard, and it retains a lot of the original features - including a mill pond with insatiable ducks. Our room was was well appointed, scrupulously clean and very comfortable.
We chose to eat at the Egypt Mill and were rewarded with a true, restaurant quality meal. It is well priced considering the quality of food (£60 for two people including wine) and I could find nothing wrong with it. The breakfast is excellent too, offering a wide selection from kippers, to full English, to eggs royals.
I will be going back. I am quite fussy and don't often go to the same place twice - but in this instance, I will be making an exception.

Room Tip: Room 16 has a window which is about twenty feet from a public foot path. Worth keeping in mind for t...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Hotel is very attractive and full of character. Food and service were very good as were the room facilities. Staff were friendly and attentive. Cotswolds is a beautiful area.

What can I say wow!! On the 1st November 2013 I became a Mrs :)

From the moment we had decided to have the reception meal at the Egypt Mill the staff had been nothing but helpful. When I first contacted them to ask about having a reception meal for 25 people they said we could have the upstairs room (approx £300 off the top of my head), or we could have the wheel room in the restaurant for free. As the whole day was on a budget we when for the wheel room. To be honest I thought that we wouldn't get the best service as I had gone from the cheap option but how wrong was I!!

From table arrangements, to the cake stand; to the service on the day, to allowing us to have the upstairs after the meal. They were amazing!!

We got to the Egypt Mill at around 3pm and we had some lovely photographs taken outside in by the beautiful mill, and then went inside for food. As I have completed the pre-order form the food came out quickly and was cooked to perfection. They were so attentive and thoughtful in the way they treated us. We were able to do speeches and the closed off the wheel room to the restaurant so we have privacy which was so thoughtful.

When we had finished and went upstairs to the lounge area, they took all the flowers and cake up for us and also allowed us to play some music in the background while people have coffees and cake.

My HUSBAND and I then stayed the night at the mill and slept in the lovely large room and comfy bed. All in all we couldn't of wished for a better place to have out reception meal. We would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff (especially the man working the restaurant and bar he may have been the manager or assistant manager I want to say Matt?) for making our day even more special.

We've already said that we will make it an anniversary tradition to come and stay at the Egypt Mill.

Thank you!!

Room Tip: We had the bridal suite which is amazing!!

What a gem! We found the Egypt Mill online and thought it would be an ideal central point at which to meet up with our friends for a weekend. Friendly, helpful reception staff ensured that we were all in the same building ( there are three accommodation areas ). We stayed in the Mill House, comfortable well appointed rooms with beds so comfortable that it was a hardship to get up in time for breakfast. We were so glad we did - the choice was excellent. Our meals all arrived at the same time, beautifully cooked and piping hot. Proper coffee too!
The gardens and surroundings are super - the water garden and the 'iron works' are a pleasure to sit in. Recommend the 'iron works' open fire on a chilly damp evening although look out for the ducks!

First time at the Egypt Mill. Friendly staff on arrival and through out our stay. We up graded to a garden room which was a lovely room but a little far. I think it would be better in summer as it was dark and the path quite slippery. But the room was nice and warm as was the restaurant. Food and service in the restaurant was very good as well as the breakfast the next morning. The bar area is not very welcoming and feels quite cold and bare. But outside there is a lovely wood burner where we sat having our drinks after our meal. I was so glad that this was there as otherwise I think we would have gone to the Britannia pub in the village for a drink. Would recommend this hotel and we will stay there again maybe in summer.

Staff very friendly from reception to waitress. Had room 16 which was very spacious however our friends room 12 was quite cramped. Room was quite close to man road but was not bothered by noise. When booking ask where room is as we were in main building lots of stairs. Breakfast excellent Saturday choice, although would recommend getting down early Sunday we ate later and portions smaller, fruit almost gone and service slower as very busy. Restaurant meals very good and no rush book in advance to ensure table. Sat round fire outside even on damp day quaint. Visited Westonbirt Arboretum and Tetbury.

We took my mother in law to Egypt Mill restaurant on Sunday to celebrate her 70th birthday and had an unforgettable experience for all the wrong reasons. The starters were fine, some actually quite good, but we then waited 40 minutes for the main course. The very inexperienced waitress mixed up the plates so was one meal short. We all waited, someone else came out of the kitchen and swapped a couple of meals around and we waited again. Finally we were told that we all had the correct food (it was roast meat with gravy so hard to distinguish lamb from pork, apparently) but once we began eating we realised that two meals were still wrong. Rather than wait again and spoil the meal we decided to accept what we had been given! My daughter then discovered that her chicken was virtually raw (still red and could not be separated from the bone) so had to leave her food. 'Roast' potatoes were white and undercooked and our meals were almost cold. Not what you expect when a main course is at least £14.
We optimistically ordered puddings but once again the standard of the food was appalling. The 'Eton Mess' was never more aptly named, it consisted of a liquid mix of frozen fruit, large pieces of meringue and nothing else. Really revolting and inedible. I took it over to the waitresses, the chef took a look and shook his head but said nothing!
Although we did not pay for the raw chicken or the inedible puddings, the whole day was thoroughly spoiled by the extremely substandard food, not what you expect when your bill comes to £260! I was embarrassed by my choice of restaurant and certainly will not go again. There are so many excellent places to eat in Nailsworth and the surrounding villages, please don't waste your money here.

Egyptmill, General Manager at Egypt Mill Hotel & Restaurant, responded to this review, 19 October 2013
I have looked into the circumstances of your visit having spoken to the team who looked after you. Our staff did make every effort to put things right and whilst I realise it’s not much of a consolation to you, we made a substantial adjustment to your bill. I understand the rest of your guests were happy with their meal, indeed, thank you, a generous gratuity was left for our staff. We can only apologise for the events that took place and assure you that this was isolated occasion when things just set to conspire against us.
