“Welcome improvements”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

We have visited the mill house on several occasions over the last few years. At first it was very good, then it seemed to go off the boil a bit, was getting rather dated and tired looking. We gave a miss for a while. Then last October we decided to give it another go as it's in an area of the country we like very much, and we'd had an e mail telling us that it was under new ownership. We were delighted to find how much work had been done and how much was going to be done. The bar and lounge areas have swapped places and been given a makeover, and the entrance has been transformed, all very tastefully done.The new owner was very friendly and we had a lovely meal on both evenings,well presented and served. The breakfasts too were excellent. We are looking forward to returning soon to see what progress has been made!

Room Tip: As the bedrooms are all undergoing a makeover they should all be good

Have just returned from a wonderful few days in The Mill[our 3rd stay],in a beautiful room overlooking the Cornwell Brook,the grounds really are beautiful.Every request we made was answered with a 'yes'...we had breakfast in the room[as I am disabled,and ill in the mornings],we sometimes exchanged the evening meal for lunch,we ate in the comfy lounge,an extra mattress topper was provided to help with my back problems etc etc.Maria,the owner is very hands on and I must also mention James her son,Kayley,Sophie and all the staff who are courteous and helpful.
We had a long power cut one night which did not phase Maria and Co........in fact it was a little adventure!....no-one went hungry and t lights and little torches were handed out.
The only thing that was missing was our green woodpeckers,but we have already booked to return with my mother in law in the summer so we'll see them then!........can't wait to return!!

Room Tip: overlooking the Cornwell Brook is very relaxing

We have just returned from a fabulous 2 night break, and felt immediately at home, and thoroughly spoilt, the owners and staff could not have done more to make us feel welcome, the food was exceptional and we loved the surroundings, had the weather been more amenable then we would have explored more.
It is so refreshing to find a hotel that readily accepts well behaved dogs without putting them and their owners in the worst room they have, as has been our experience in the past, we specifically requested a room near an exit door for those quick doggie needs, without having to disturb other residents and our request was fully met. Our room was lovely and over looked the gardens, on arriving we had the cream tea which was heavenly, taken in front of the roaring log fire, with the dogs at our feet.
We would highly recommend this hotel, and are looking forward to a return visit.

Room Tip: If travelling with dog's rooms 16 and 17 are the best for access to the outside, without disturb...

Had a great couple of days here with a group of friends. It's a lovely hotel and in a very good location for exploring the Cotswolds.
The food was delicious and the staff at the hotel without exception were really friendly and helpful. We were made to feel very welcome.
I'm really looking forward to returning!

We booked the new year break with our friends as group of 6 couples. The hosts and staff of the Mill House good not have been more friendly and helpful toward us. We were warmly greeted and the needs for two individuals of the group who have mobility issues were more than met, the wheelchair access to the upper level did require a quick external tour of the garden to reach the upper level via the bar door. The food served over the two day period was first class. The property is a converted watermill with some additional room extensions added, some of the bed rooms bathroom facilities were a bit tired, but the new owners have already devised a plan to their refresh the bedrooms and bathroom facilities, which has already commenced. I will be recommending this hotel to all friends as a must place to stay.

Room Tip: Ground Floor rooms are better

Many thanks for your fabulous review of the Mill House. I'm delighted to hear that your group enjoyed their stay with us over the New Year period.
As you mention, work is now underway on the bathroom refurbishments and 2 have been completed already. We hope it won't be too long until they are all up to a high standard.

We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

Maria and Paul have worked so hard to make this hotel a very friendly and welcoming place. The staff are pleasant, helpful and approachable, nothing is to much trouble for them. We stayed for three nights over New Years Eve, which was excellent. The food is always superb, and as I have problem with eating, the Chef managed to always find an alternative for me. The whole ambience of New Years Eve was really great, the dining room looked lovely, and the whole effort on everybodys part to make it a wonderful and happy occasion worked. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, so we will be back again . Look forward to seeing you soon.
Thank you. Rita and David

Room Tip: We had a room facing the garden lovely views
