Reading some comments on Trip Advisor before going to The Porch House somewhat concerned me. I wish in hindsight I had not read them as they could not be further from the truth. The Porch House is seriously impressive. There is no formal reception as noted by Muddy Stilettos review (go to bar on right), thereafter you are in the... More

We picked The Porch House for a much needed 24 hour break - and I knew it ticked all the boxes as soon as I set foot in the door. Firstly, the management obviously understand that the key to making guests happy is warmth - both in temperature and welcome - and excellent lighting (i.e dim enough to hide all... More

Recently stayed overnight in this charming inn, room was quirky but very comfortable, service was welcoming and very good. Atmosphere in the bar area was buzzy, the place has a really good feel. Dinner in the main restaurant was first class, good choice and locally sourced produce. I will certainly stay here again.

Just stayed at the Porch House. Stayed over on business on my way to Campden and booked on the internet. The place has been re-sculptured to an exceptionally high standard. The decor perfectly matches the historic building and the town of Stow. My greeting was pleasant and hospitable, with the bar man taking me to my room. The room, although... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Porch House last night and it was fantastic. We stayed in a suite which was beautifully appointed in a countrified style. We both had the flat iron steak in the restaurant which again was excellent and the service very good too! We would highly recommend it!

We stopped here for lunch and will be back to stay. Fabulous building and friendly attentive staff. The ' lunch club' menu is such good a deal, it's rude to walk by. The food lives up to expectations and the atmosphere was very relaxing too.

Just returned from a 2 night stay at the Porch House, which was disappointing. Whilst the attention to detail from an ascetic perspective was good, employing the eclectic Farrar & Ball look to maximum effect, the practicalities were poorly serviced. Other reviews have commented on the small double rooms, which we felt lacked basic comforts such as facial tissues, shower... More

Stayed here for 2 nights end of October in a standard room. The room was decorated to a good standard and so was the shower room, although the room was on the small side as was the sink in the shower room you quickly get used to it for a couple of nights. Also maybe the cleaners could hoover around... More

On arrival we didn't feel overly welcomed having to hang about with our bags whilst a slight problem was sorted out via iPad by someone that seemed to want to be elsewhere. The standard double room was furnished well but was very small; brushing your teeth at the miniature sink caused a few contortions. The dining room was lovely -... More
