The house is potentially a beautiful spot but let down by poor upkeep, sub-standard facilities and not being clean. My wife thought she had booked a room with a shower but there was no shower. The plumbing was clearly old and noisy. The bed was hard - we both woke with aching backs. The telephone in the room did not... More

Was very disappointing. The room was in need of a complete refit. The round granite sink was would never look clean as there were natural blotches of dark granite all over it and whoever chose the taps!!!! the spout of the tap was so close to the bottom of the sink you couldn't get your hands under it and to...

we were very disappointed with the main course choice on the menu, steak steak or steak, or fish and chips, burger etc (the extras list on a torn piece of paper). the wild duck used to be a lovely restaurant with wider choice, but we had not been for a while so decided to make the best of it. anyway...

We arrived mid Friday for a weekend stay with friends to see the Air Tattoo at Fairford. The room was dark, small & needed updating; the bathroom grout darker & darker as it got lower, a round stained wash basin with a tap too low to fill kettle - get in the chipped/stained bath for that job. I've seen better... More

In a quiet Cotswold village just outside Cirencester this quirky Pub/Restaurant/Inn has plenty of parking and a pretty beer garden. The restaurant and bar area is lovely and we had a very nice meal in the evening with pleasant and helpful staff (mostly!). However, this venue should stick to what they do best and that is not providing good, clean,... More

My family and I visited here several times back in 2006/7, then it was a bustling pub and restaurant with a great vibe and lovely menu, particularly the Sunday carvery., Sadly we visited again with much anticipation about the whole experience. We had not even looked at Trip Advisor, as were so upbeat about it because of our last trips.... More

went with friends for a celebration. Very disappointed, mix up on our booking and we had to sit In the very uncomfortable bar area, food over priced with very little accompaniment. Having said that the setting is lovely and maybe if we had sat in the restaurant...where we were meant to have sat....and had a bit more on our plates... More

I had read plenty of reviews after we had booked and thought I had made a mistake. We booked a two night deal through Amazon. The staff were very helpful. Some of the areas could do with a bit of tlc but it is a 16th century building so you should expect it to be quirky. Wifi in the bar... More

We visited Wild Duck Inn from 9-11. July 2015. It is a fascinating old Inn which in our opinion needs some improvements to live up to the fees charged for the room and our expectations. The people were hospitable and nice, and the food fine, but the standard of the rooms, the quality of the madras, the toiletseat and especially... More

Oh what a shame...... an old building in a great location which could have so much potential. We stayed with an Amazon Deal for two nights, like others we struggled to know where to book in. Everything looks like it could do with a good clean. Our bath in the bathroom was so rusty it had corroded all the way... More
