A lovely building and the staff and customer service was excellent. Breakfast experience was particularly memorable with the fresh honeycomb! I would definitely recommend this place for a quiet weekend away.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay and it was amazing, from checking in to checking out. The most helpful and friendly staff were always really attentive. Room 7 was really spacious and comfortable with a lovely window seat. Breakfast was excellent with a choice of amazing locally sourced produce. We only ate one night in the bar... More

We stayed for the second time at this Lovely b&b! Very quirky with special touches throughout. The rooms slightly small... But cosy! We had food on a Saturday night in the restaurant, venison was to die for... Compliments to the chef, my only criticism being... When we visited a couple of months back the menu was very exciting and we... More

Hi we have just returned home from a 2 night break in the Cotswolds at the Porch House Hotel in Stow on the Wold. The Oldest Inn in England. It has undergone a recent refurbishment program so our expectations were quite high. The Hotel is owned by Brakspear Brewers of good ale which is on tap in the bar. Real... More

Just been to stay on a Sunday night: - The dining room was closed which was not mentioned when booking, so the menu was extremely limited and the food was cold. - Stayed in room 1, the extractor fan for the kitchen was outside the room and it sounded like a jet was landing, so asked for it to be...

We have just returned from a family 3 day stay here, a delayed 70th celebration for my f-i-l. Having searched the review websites for the area and also read the Telegraph review for The Porch House, expectations were high. As noted, parking on arrival can be a slight problem, but we never had to park more than 100 metres from... More

Had an early dinner here with my sister, food was really lovely. My sister has a wheat intolerance but the chef easily accommodated her chosen meal of cod, which we both had and I can easily say it was totally delicious and cooked to perfection. All the food was beautifully presented and the waitress was friendly and attentive.

We arrived at the Porch House after a 7 hour drive from Scotland and were escorted to our room by a very charming young man. The room ( no 14 ) was tiny and despite our escort attempting to brighten the room by failing to switch on two lights he beat a hasty retreat leaving my wife and I the... More

We stayed at The Porch House on Sunday night (21st September 2014). The building is beautiful, renovated to a high standard with lots of original features. The staff were friendly and the service was good. Our room (14) was out the back, small but very nicely done with quality fixtures and fittings. The bed was comfy and we had a... More
