This hotel was booked by my boyfriend for 2 nights (21-23 July) We arrived at 8pm after spending the day in Cheltenham. Did not struggle with parking, although I can see how it can be a problem. We checked in very easily and were told about breakfast times. Our room was Imperial Call which was located at the top of... More

We arrived in the evening when we were greeted by a female member of staff, she was extremely helpful and given my height offered to move myself and my partner into a room which would be more accommodating. We were moved into the Cottage suite which was absolutely amazing, the layout was greatly planned with the bed being upstairs on... More

We have stayed here before in one of the three garden rooms - never the main building. The hotel is old and the literature warns you to be careful moving about the place but nothing prepares you for the precipitous stairs that lead to rooms 8-11 located on the third floor. Parking is very tight at the rear of the... More

We stayed at The Kings Arms Hotel for three nights, I had contacted them prior to ask for room with shower instead of bath and this is what we received. The Kings Arms is a very old building and access with a car does appear difficult at first, we finally parked in a restricted 2 hour spot. Check in was... More

We arrived without a booking frantically looking for a suitable b&b for one night in Stow on the Wold. Were feeling quite discouraged till we chanced upon the Kings Arms around almost 7pm.
