An added bonus was coming back to cake every afternoon it seemed very rude not to eat it!!. John and Emma are both lovely and friendly and breakfast... More

Lovely room (westcote) with very comfortable bed and plenty of space. Good helpful hosts and a very convenient location near the town, but away from the busy main road. Disappointing, almost non existent wifi in the room and at breakfast the fruit salad did not eventuate even after 8.45. (we had booked for 8.15am). All else was up to standard... More

Good Morning Peter, I must say when I read this review I was ever so slightly shocked and disappointed (especially as both Emma and myself went out of our way especially for you) to make sure we could accommodate you as much as possible. We don't normally take one night bookings in the high season (like most other places within... More

Set just a short walk away from the main street of Bourton On the Water this B & B was superb. Run by young family members who were so welcoming it was a pleasant bonus and they couldn't have been more helpful. Even down to the home made cake left in the room every afternoon! We stayed in the annex... More

John and Emma were the most perfect of hosts. They went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. The whole place is newly decorated to the highest standard and the bed was luxuriously comfortable. Breakfast was an indulgent joy. I could not recommend more highly. Jamie

They have the knack of being friendly and informative but not intrusive. We were in the Annex, so it felt like we had the place to ourselves (the 2nd bedroom in the annex was unoccupied at the time). Wonderful, spacious rain shower. Good free wifi. Delicious breakfast with all ingredients of high quality, especially the fruit salad and homemade muesli.... More

We have just arrived home from spending 2 nights at this beautiful place. The hosts John and Emma couldn't make you more welcome. We had the downstairs room just off the conservatory and were informed that it was the largest room. Beautiful furniture and nice finishing touches. Loved the little cakes left in our room for when we returned late... More

Everything you read about this Hotel and how good it is is true. John & Emma are perfect hosts. Great rooms great hosts and a fabulous weekend was had by us all. Breakfast was really good and the sun was enjoyed in the garden on more than one occasion. Not just a luxurious property but hosts who cared. Great cake.
