Our second time staying here, since our last visit there is a new chef and the food is a little different than our previous visit, more experimental and less run of he mill items on the menu,although still excellent . We had the same room as before and the standards have been kept up, although a bulb had blown in... More

My wife and I needed a little break away, and stumbled across this hotel from the Mr & Mrs site. Considering the source this was surprisingly reasonable price. The village is beautiful, the hotel entrance and exterior is stunning. The inside is very modern and very different to the exterior. However it is done very well and beings quirky boutique... More

This hotel is all about the food. It is just exceptional. Breath-taking. We spent most of our dinner (in the main restaurant) making moreish noises and squealing with delight. It's not just good hotel food - it's an entire experience. From the moment the hors d'oeurves came, extraordinary home-made scotch eggs, we knew we were in for something special. And... More

On the outside this hotel is beautiful, in a very stunning Cotswold village. Sadly the decor inside is gashtly. I assume it is trying to be trendy but it doesn't quite work. It has the look of a budget amateur "makeover show". The rooms look very cheap, the mattress was definitely very cheep and uncomfortable. Nasty plastic mirror things on... More

Excellent hotel, excellent location, excellent food, excellent-unique rooms. Stayed here on a romantic weekend in the Cotswolds and it fit the bill perfectly. The hotel has some stunning views across the valley. It was also very competitive on price considering the Cotswolds!

We decided to spoil ourselves with a top-notch luxury weekend away in the Cotswolds at the well-reviewed Cotswold88 hotel in Painswick. We booked the suite on a dinner, bed & breakfast deal that came in at around five hundred quid. When you are spending that kind of money for a single night my view is that you are at the... More

Many parts of the hotel were fine- with the evening menu and the bar the plus points- few negatives were (i) spa was full and no effort was made to fit us in (ii) cleaners were chatting noisily from 8am and when we mentioned this is was brushed off (iii) service was pretty average and at times hard to find...

Went for one night with some trepidatoin having read the reviews but we found it a great place to relax. The decor is a touch dated in some areas but the majority of the hotel still manages to pull it off - must have been quite out there 5 years ago when it was designed! Just to clarify; dated not...

I loved the hotel but the decor is to modern for my taste. So its just my opinion. The staff very friendly and the service was very good. Had a good nights sleep and the breakfast was good. The evening meal was good if not a little overstated. If you like very modern in a lovely location then this is... More

Stayed here for a family get together and birthday celebration. The rooms are beautifully decorated, wacky but tasteful absolutely loved it! the food was great and the staff all very helpful, we had a private room for dining one evening and it all went seamlessly well. The hotel was a lovely base for our weekend activities. Great for a weekend... More
