Just visited Bella Dorma this weekend and found it warm and welcome! It is ideally located with a 2min walk to the town. The room was very cheerful and cozy. The breakfasts were great and bespoke to our needs! Jacqui made the extra effort and helped us with finding the surrounding towns! Wouldn't consider staying anywhere else on our return!

A delightful, family run B&b in glorious Bourton-on-the Water. Great size room and bathroom. Lovely range of breakfast choices, all fresh and well presented. Relaxing garden, and all of the Cotswolds on the doorstep. What more could you want?

The Bella Dorma is a beautiful B&B ideally located for exploring Bourton on the Water and the surrounding Cotswold villages. The B&B owner's son and daughter-in-law were very friendly and helpful on arrival. The attractions of Bourton are all within walking distance of the B&B so we were able to leave our car parked there while we did some sightseeing.... More

We stayed here for three nights and found it to be a perfect base to explore the Cotswolds for our cycling holiday. Jacque simply couldn't have been more helpful. Our room was Room 3 and was fabulous, clean, spacious and peaceful. Breakfast was plentiful and freshly prepared. We will be staying here again. This is great place to stay.

I am surprised to read so many reviews that laud Jacqui's manners and customer service. I have never encountered such rudeness and lack of customer service before in my life! Having arrived at Bella Dorma B & B during the check-in window, and after driving around to find some food, I returned back to the B & B to have... More

Just back from a relaxing few days in the Cotswolds. Stayed at the lovely little B&B. Jacqui is very welcoming & friendly. Room was clean & neat. Breakfast was good & plenty of it cooked while we enjoyed the cereal. If we had an criticism it would be the bedding. Much needed to make the place a good 4 star... More

This is the third time we stayed with Jacqui and it is totally consistent in the high standard of rooms and terrific breakfast! Jacqui was a great host, very knowledgable and helpful. This last time we took our kids and granddaughter and we all were catered for well as they are vegetarian.

Just returned from a lovely weekend stay at bella dorma. It is an ideal place to stay as its a 5min walk to the river and shops. Jacqui is lovely and cooks a fab breakfast, all freshly cooked. The cottage is lovely and warm, I stayed in room 3 and had a lovely nights sleep in the king size bed.... More

It was our first visit to this part of the Cotswolds and Jacqui was the perfect host. From the moment we stepped through the door, she made us feel at home. She recommended great places, restaurants to visit and has an immaculate home. The B&B is only a few minutes walk from the main street and it is the perfect... More
