We popped in for a family lunch during a sunny day. The setting is beautiful, the building stunning, the staff ok but no upselling or over assisting anyone. However, everything else goes downhill from there. The place is dirty, uncared for and generally falling apart. I know they are going for the rustic, country, old charm but there are ways... More

I have travelled the country, frequently staying in many a hotel, pub, farm and B&B accommodation in the UK over the last 40 years. I am a senior contributor with Trip Advisor and always try to be fair with my reviews of places. My visit to this establishment brought me to the sad conclusion the the Wild Duck Inn must... More

We stayed at this hotel on a Wowcher deal this last weekend, to celebrate my birthday.On arriving we were pleased to see the outside of the building living up to its reputation. Unfortunately, on going inside we were left a little disappointed. It took quite a while to find a member of staff to check us in, and when we... More

Just had a lovely night at this beautiful inn. The food is lovely and good value, the bar is (too!) cosy and our room - the Chinese Suite- was fabulous. Service was great - perhaps a little slow in the restaurant but, as my companion said, we had no pressure on our time so we could roll with it. But... More

We booked a 1 night B&B stay on a voucher deal. We eventually found a date ourselves and the hotel could agree on. It was easy to find despite being in the middle of nowhere. Upon arrival we waited at the bar to be shown to our room, this appeared to be an inconvenience to the member of staff on... More

I bought this weekend from Wowcher back in December and I must admit that after reading the negatives regarding this old inn I was quite concerned to the point where I almost cancelled. I over packed for two nights as on e of the reviews said it was freezing, and the heating did not work. I was very pleasantly surprised... More

I felt like I had to write a review for this hotel because I feel like people are so unfair. We stayed here on the last Friday of February for my birthday. We were blessed with beautiful weather for out weekend in the Cotswolds but this place is beautiful. Our room was perfect, tea and coffee making facilities, four poster... More

We stayed here as a family of four for one night, But it encompassed a bigger family party on the Saturday lunchtime, we had a light evening meal and breakfast the following morning. The rooms we had were comfortable and clean. the bathroom had a wobbly tap, but otherwise functioned perfectly well. The staff were really helpful and polite, sometimes... More

Having visited previously 3 years ago we continued to hear warm reports about how lovely The Wild Duck was. So we booked in for dinner and an overnight. I am sorry to say the accomodation was a big dissappointment, indeed the whole establishment is now full of chat about how lovely "it was". Dinner was well presented with an interesting... More
