This is a lovely, quaint hotel in an equally lovely and quaint village. We were here for a wedding, three of us and although the room wasn't excessively large, we weren't cramped either. The room had so much character, low beams, four poster beds, and very tastefully decorated. The bathroom was very small but again, just added to the character... More

We spent two nights at Cardynham House during a two week trip through the UK and it was far and away the best two nights we spent on the entire trip. Cardnyham House is not a hotel - its an historic structure in a charming Cotswold village. We stayed on the top floor in a large room well suited for... More

Having read some of the reviews we weren't sure what to expect. However, this is our experience. We had a buyagift voucher and before contacting the hotel had already read the information relating to this hotel regarding which rooms and days it was valid for. With this is mind we contacted the hotel via email to enquire about availability, and... More

The hotel is quaint, but does look a little run down from outside. We stayed here using a voucher which was an xmas present. Like a previous reviewer the person I booked with spent more time talking about t & c's of the voucher rather than enthusing about the hotel. Having said that we spent an enjoyable night there. The... More

This B & B is located in a small village in the Cotswolds..Parking was available off-site for an added fee. The room we were allocated was quite small, the bathroom was tiny and very poorly lit. Breakfast was in an on-site restaurant run by individuals managing the operation for an absentee owner. Breakfast was very good, and a small supper... More

Thank you for your comments. The room this guest chose is our smallest room and the lowest priced - this is a reflection of the room size. All images shown on our very recently (April 2014) updated website have been shot in 2014 and are current. We are currently in the process of fully refurbishing this room - expected to... More

Great location right in the middle of this lovely unspoilt village. We had a very romantic old room in the roof of this venerable building, with views over the roofs to the countryside. The room was a superior, good size fitted between the beams and rafters, and well-equipped. We packed on the street right opposite but you might have to... More

The person who took our booking (with a gift voucher) was a bit grumpy - pointing to the small print of the voucher conditions rather than making us feel he'd like to host us. The room (New England) had old-fashioned character. Comfortable bed and adequate shower-and-wash room - only adequate as squeezed into existing room, and small. The room was... More

Thank you for your review. It is correct that there was a problem with our heating on one of the nights of your stay. As soon as we knew that the heating was not working we got our engineer in the following morning and the problem was rectified by 10AM. I was away at the time and my staff should... More

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely guest house. It is very well looked after, with great people doing that great job. The room we had, New England was very nice and well maintained. The location was beautiful, with such beautiful views. This is a place that we would love to visit again.
