What a wonderful place to stay. We were well looked after right from our arrival to our departure. We almost felt like it was our own home, without having to do the chores. We arrived on a grey day, to a warm welcome with lovely Cheddar Valley scrumpy and Fiona even worked at getting my netbook connected to the wi-fi... More

I was looking for somewhere special in the Cotswolds to take the wife for her birthday, and also somewhere dog friendly that combined food and the chance for me to have a few shandies. This place seemed to fit the bill. There are some reviews on here that make much mention of the noise from the bar, and staying in... More

The Hollow Bottom is less like a Public House B&B, more like a homely hotel! We loved it so much, we stayed an extra night. We were shown to our room 'Earth Summit' at the front of the house and it certainly had the wow factor! (ignore the flowery bedrooms on Expedia as all have been refurbished) A huge room... More

Just an overnight stay. Very friendly staff and owner. Great food and a good pint of Donningtons. Breakfast outstanding. If you are into horse racing look no further!

Guiting Power is in the middle of nowhere with a very interesting drive to get there - if you love beautiful remote villages with stunning scenery then this is the place. We had a wonderful welcome from the staff and were shown to our room straight away. This is a proper local pub and has a great atmosphere - the... More

Not knowing what to expect at a place situated in a remote postion such as Guiting Power in the lovely Coltswolds we must say that it is one of the best places to put our heads down we have ever encountered.

We stayed at the Hollow Bottom one night during our 50 mile walk through the Cotswolds. Guiting Power is such a charming little village and this place was a real find. We were lodged in the Bindaree bungalow behind the Inn which was huge compared to other places we stayed along the way. It was very nicely decorated and furnished,... More

I stayed several nights here and even the spectacular countryside round about could not put me a good mood. The room was ordinary but a very bright light shone on to the bed all night long and no amount of adjusting furniture and re-arranging curtains could overcome this extremely annoying problem. The bathroom was a disaster: an overly large room... More
