This weekend was a special birthday weekend for my husband and from the moment we stepped foot into the hotel our impression was bad. The receptionist seemed very new and didn’t seem to know what to do, she took forever to confirm our dinner reservation in the restaurant and when we were led to our room it was so disappointing....

We stopped off at Cotswold 88, after a heavy duty day travelling for business.The staff that we saw were absolutely lovely Kelly,Nadia and Greshan Naidoo the duty manager, but that was all we saw throughout our stay and it soon became apparent that they were run off their feet. This obviously impacted on the stay somewhat in terms of service... More

We stayed here after purchasing a deal through Living Social. Upon arrival at reception we were met by a very pleasant young lady who showed us to our room and she seemed really pleased/proud to show us around. First impressions were excellent. The room was really funky (room 9). The weather was lovely so we sat outside with some wine... More

Lovely hotel but staff in the kitchen must be taking a nap... over an hour for starters to be brought out. Overall 3 hours for 3 courses... far too long. Food service overall could be better. Staff didn't ask if everything was okay throughout the courses and staff seemed very nervous. There was 3 members of staff serving which caused... More

Enjoyed afternoon tea with the family great value great selection and all so yummy.The decor is unique and stunning Downside is not pushchair friendly not a chance with a wheelchair. The staff were thin on the ground and not what you would expect from a high class hotel.
