We were looking for somewhere to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary and had never been to the area around Bath and the Cotswolds and so found the Blunsdon house hotel that seemed nicely positioned and looked a nice hotel as well. We checked in mid afternoon with no problem at all to find we had been upgraded to a room in the pavilion and in the room was a bottle of wine and chocolates for our anniversary. There was a small balcony for the room and from this there was a fabulous view of the Cotswolds while we sat and drank our wine. The room was nice, clean and spacious and the bathroom has both a bath and walk in shower. What a good start to our stay.
As it was a Saturday there was a wedding going on so the bar was busy before their meal so we made use of the pool facilities with the only strange thing being that the saunas were in the changing rooms instead of a communal one in the pool area so I had to sit and sauna away from the wife which normally would be a chance for some peace and quiet but it was our anniversary!!.
By the time we had finished the bar had cleared as the wedding party were in the private room having their wedding meal so we had a quiet drink to end the afternoon.
We had booked a table in Nichols the a la carte dining room in the evening and had a very nice meal in pleasant surroundings with attentive staff.
Bed was very comfortable and had a good nights sleep.
Breakfast on Sunday had a very good choice and quality and prompt service.
We set off to Bath for the day and got back mid afternoon and had a quick swim in the pool and then ordered a large jug of pimms and sat out on the terrace area reading the Sunday papers in the late afternoon sunshine.
Nichols is not open on a Sunday so we dined in the more informal restaurant Christopher’s. It was a carvery buffet service with the Chef serving your meat and you helping yourself to the veg etc. food was again very nice and included a starter and dessert.
Had no problems checking out on Monday morning and had a very enjoyable stay and would definitely stay there again.
