Loved this hotel/Inn! Stayed on a Saturday night in November for my boyfriends birthday and we was really impressed with the style of the hotel and all the attention to detail to make sure the hotel was traditional but without trying too hard. Loved all the furniture, decoration and accessories - wanted to take them all home with me! Our... More

Our room was rather on the small side, with a hand wash sink rather than a basin however that was pointed out on the booking system so fair play. The inn is beautifully renovated and full of quirky touches. All-in-all a good experience. Food good and great atmosphere.

Quaint little place in the middle of Stow. Excellent service and food! It's a really old building but super well maintained and with all the facilities inside. Once again - service was impeccable! Would love to go back.

Throughout our stay we received first class service from all staff working in the hotel. There was 8 in our party and we had... More

We have just returned from a one night stay at the wonderful Porch House. We stayed in room 5 - up in the rafters, the room was perfect. Big comfy double bed, deliciously warm and cosy, perfect lighting and gorgeous rainfall shower in the spacious bathroom. The food is fantastic, from the a la carte menu in the restaurant to... More

Lovely old hotel. Lots of charm and so quaint. Great room and luxuriously comfortable bed. Good breakfast too. Would come again.

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.
