Stow-on-the-Wold is a wonderful location and a must to visit. This was a last minute booking for an overnight stay on our way back to the South West. The building itself was wonderful and I could not fault our accommodation. My only negative was in such an old building the bar area was very disappointing and not in keeping with... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay in a Cottage at the King's Arms Hotel. It was clean and warm but a lot of little things that annoyed me. The pressure in the shower was poor, the lighting in the cottage was very poor - made it difficult to apply make up. I hated the pillows but the bed itself... More

I can understand why people think this place is so good but to be honest I thought it was a bit average. The room, which was one of the outside cottages, looks great when you turn up; all exposed beams and gallery sleeping. But at 6am we realised that the walls must be made of paper. Our neighbour started a... More

Went for a meal with my other half today food was brilliant,service was great!! A young chap was serving us he was so cheerful, put smiles on people's faces. The pub is lovely country side feeling with a toasty log fire for the winter days. Will decently be visiting again soon.

We were staying at The Kings Arms for our anniversary and the venue and staff were great. Unfortunately not long after we and another couple were seated in the restaurant a young family were allowed to seat in front of the fire but were not eating. They played card games all evening and were very loud and disturbed the atmosphere... More

Called at this establishment on Boxing Day when Wooster places in Stow were closed. Received very good service and a very acceptable meal. We would go again. This is atypical old fashioned country pub with open log fires. The staff were very helpful

Arrived for lunch. Sat down at a table in the middle of the bar area. 4 other tables of customers arriving after us were acknowledged and served, We appeared to be invisible as we were completely ignored. After several attempts failing to attract the waiting staff's attention and being ignored for 15 mins, we became thoroughly fed up and left.... More

The room photos on line attracted us to book and the reality did not disappoint. Stayed in room 4 - spacious with a great little sitting area (such comfy chairs). Very nice room - up the "drunken staircase" which must be one of the oldest features in the Kings Arms. The breakfast room/ restaurant is rather different, but in a... More

We spent the night at the Kings Arms. The staff were so very attentive and accommodating. We stayed in Cottage Rake, which is one of the 3 converted cottages in an old stable block. Lovely private space of our own with our own lounge, bathroom and bedroom which was spotlessly clean throughout. We went to the restaurant for dinner in... More

Stayed overnight, room at the top of some steep stairs which just added to the atmosphere as far as I was concerned. Walls very thin as with all old accommodation in England but very comfortable room and breakfast was excellent.
