We stayed here for one night as a birthday treat. Food was delicious, drinks were superb and the staff were fantastic. This is a modern, chic boutique hotel in the middle of the countryside. I would recommend a visit.

Beautiful setting, gorgeous food and a very inspiring and relaxed environment. Everything you would want out of a boutique hotel. Highly recommend the cream tea! We went for a lovely stroll round the local village which really added to the chocolate box setting. Upgrade to one of the larger rooms recommended to make this a perfect stay.

This property is situated in a beautiful village but that is the only positive that can be said about it. It's clear the property is struggling financially. There is a lack of staff both in the reception area and in the bar/restaurant. A handful of staff run around doing multiple chores. We waited a very long time to be served... More

This hotel is top class for comfort and location. Some strange décor going on the room though (mix of old and new - Andy Warhol style). Breakfast was good and dinner of excellent quality (although check the actual menu wording as we had two different versions of the same dish - one with garlic, the other without).... Good close connections... More

Stayed with friends, on a Travelzoo deal, so value was very good. Last time we had a room with modernistic scary wallpaper, but this time we had the room next door which was much more sedate. The staff here are very friendly, both at reception and at breakfast service. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, with good bathroom facilities and... More

As a surprise for my wife on our Ruby Wedding Anniversary I thought that I would take her back to where we had held our wedding reception in 1975. The hotel then wasn't the Cotswold 88 as it is today, and certainly the interior design was totally different. However, the location was the reason we chose it 40 years ago... More

Have done quite a few travelzoo deals and this hotel fares very well. ON arrival (very tight narrow streets) took a while to check in as the lady was doing other things but we were not in a hurry. Check in was so easy and the lady took us to our room rather than just direct us. (nice touch). Room... More

I attended a morning seminar of five people. We occupied a room which purported to be the hotel's 'Conference Room'. When I arrived the lecturer was attempting to link her computer with the hotel's system. She had already asked for assistance but received none. I went to Reception and asked to see the manager but was told that she was... More

I have recently stayed at Cotswold88 hotel in Painswick with some friends over race week. I had never been before but friends of mine recommended me to the hotel. On arrival I was gobsmacked! The hotel was perfectly finished with modern decor and very clean with a homely feel to finish. I was shown to my room which was spacious... More

Fairly average Cotswold hotel located in a beautiful village. Apparently the hotel was the vicarage in a previous life before being a hotel in different guises. Now it is aspiring to be something that frankly it is not. Whoever was the interior designer needs sacking as the decor is rather unusual to say the least. Very basic room with a... More
