Stayed in one of the specialty rooms. Large bedroom with beautiful beams on the ceiling. Was delighted at how charming it was! The bathroom was spacious and very clean. Breakfast was also good. I was very impressed!

The location of this hotel is perfect for a weekend. The room we stayed in was great. The bath in the bedroom was a novelty, the bathroom itself was spacious and modern. Loved the tea and coffee making facilities. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet despite being situated above the bar.

Turned up here unannounced without my usual TA research but guessed by the happy throng that it was half-decent, and, so it turned out to be much more than that. Nicely sympathetic decor to what is obviously a very old building. Compact menu but good variation, good specials. Food was all excellent and service efficient. Pleased with our choice and... More

Our first impression was fabulous. Full of historic charm we were transported back in time. We were met with a warm welcome and were so lucky to have been upgraded to room 1 (because we left the dog at home, although the other rooms look lovely too) Stunning, spacious, clean and luxurious. Soft white fluffy towels, roll top bath with... More

We ENJOYED our first visit to the Porch House, particularly Room number 1, which is of one of the feature rooms of the pub/hotel. There was a broken tap the first time we visited last year but we ignored that, as its was such a great room. However this year the tap was still bust, the light bulb didn't work... More

Genuinely 'oldy-worldy' with very comfortable and immaculate rooms, excellent food and staff. We had a great stay and will return in the near future. You must book in advance as we spoke to many disappointed customers who tried to book too late.

We stayed in one of the "Feature" rooms - so we were expecting soemthing special but we were left slightly disappointed. The room was spectacular - particularly the bed but there were details which could have been improved: bulbs out (critically in the desk lamp) alarm clock not working; the carpet was grubby and could have done with vacuuming more...

Very welcoming staff. Its really a pub with a fine dine restaurant and rooms. Car park has only spaces for four cars! The room (no 12) was small, even though we had a double bed room, only one chair could fit in - that small. The bathroom was nearly microscopic, the shower area was bigger than the rest of the...

Came for one night and enjoyed it so much we asked if we could have our room for an additional night Fortunately it was free so we stayed to enjoy the lovely atmosphere, comfortable room, good food at breakfast and dinner and attentive staff. Excellent location in the centre of Stow for exploring locally and travelling out to other villages... More
