Just stayed two nights at The Wild Duck in Ewen . Lovely location and good value for money - £89 with voucher. Our room was fine with a four poster bed which was extremely comfortable . We both had a good nights sleep. Had a meal in the restaurant which happened to be steak night. Two steaks for £25 and... More

We booked a two night stay which ended up to be very disappointing we paid for "The best room" in the hotel but on looking around the blinds where broken and just hanging off the sky lights the TV ancient and there where steel pipes stored under the bed the carpet was dirty by the fire door, we thought ok...

My first attempt to spend a night at this inn was hit by a double booking snag, as their system had allowed two sets of guests to turn up on the same day for the same room. Unfortunately, we were second, but accidents happen and we were offered another night on another date for free. I took them up on... More

We arrived and was given an "upgrade". We had what we thought a nice room. On closer inspection there were broken tiles, light bulbs missing and generally a very tired room. It had the oldest TV known to man and when using the kettle it was still 1/2 full of water used by the previous users of the room. On... More

Having paid £89 for a standard double room inc 2 continental breakfasts x 2 we were more than happy with value for money. Very comfortable bed, quiet and clean room. Breakfast was juice, coffee, toast, jams, rolls, croissants, cheese and home cooked ham. Ample. Bar service ok and patio very rustic. Great wifi service. Young staff predominantly keen and attentive,... More

A lovely setting perfect for a beer but DON'T EAT HERE! On the menu they advise that 10% service will be added. To me that guarantees poor service as the staff expect their tip. Indeed we waited 2 hours for our meal, our cutlery was chucked on the table as if we were in a transport cafe by the teenage... More

Booked 2 nights through Laterooms and received email confirmation of this. Was then called the next day by the Wild Duck Inn and told that they had since received a booking through their own website booking system and so they wouldn't honour the Laterooms confirmation. Despite arguing that my booking had been made first and that I had confirmation of... More

A very old and pretty inn should have been delightful but the condition of the rooms and the lack of cleanliness ruined our stay. The toilet did not flush properly, there was no hot water at all either evening or morning. The kettle could not be filled in the sink and there was a glass screen on the bath, so... More

I sent my daughter and her husband to this Hotel (Vowcher Offer) for a quiet, peaceful two night break. Their experience was to be believed.!!! My daughter had difficulty in telling me of their stay at the Hotel due to the fact that it was a present. Once I was told of this, I rang and spoke to a lady... More

We arrived to find a charming building in a lovely setting. That was as good as it got. Our room was very disappointing. We weren't concerned that it was small but we did expect it to be clean, (thick dust on the lamp shades, dirty marks all over the welcome brochure), kettle was on the floor, incorrect remote in room...

The Wild Duck Inn is a mellow cotswold stone 16 century Elizabethan inn set in the heart of the cotswold village of Ewen and only a stones throw from the river Thames.With a wealth of oak beams ancestral portraits and open log fires make this a welcoming destination for all.The pretty court yard garden makes for a lovely setting for dining alfresco.We pride ourselves on sourcing local suppliers of the highest standards, from Highgrove lamb to podges vegetables.We are perfectly placed for the cotswold waterpark and its extensive activities which include sailing, wakeboarding, fishing, shooting and riding.Our geographical position places us conveniently also for badminton and Gatcombe horse trials.Cirencester is well know for its polo club from which we are 3 miles distance.We are also 25mins from cheltenham race course. ... more   less
