The hotel is in a great location in the main square of Stow with parking directly outside. We received a warm welcome and were initially very happy with our room (which the receptionist said was her favourite). However, we returned from our dinner out to a high level of noise coming from the bar below. We weren't too worried as... More

We stayed at this hotel overnight recently and only wish we could have stayed longer! We had our dog with us and were accommodated in a garden room which was extremely comfortable and scrupulously clean. We had dinner at the hotel and this proved to be very enjoyable. The food was well cooked and well presented. Breakfast the following morning... More

We had such a great stay in your beautiful hotel. Very friendly staff, great food and a homely feel. Based right in the town centre it was convinient for us(We don't drive). We could browse shops, visit the local pubs and try out other restaurants in the town. Looking forwards to my next visit to the Cotswolds and staying at... More

I visited this restaurant with family and thought the service was generally very good, one small hiccup noted by the president of the bar tenders guild uk. The bar staff served a gin and tonic incorrectly and the G&T was undrinkable. Apart from this hiccup, very happy with service. The food was excellent across all courses, I especially recommend the...

It's been a while since I could actually say I'm proud to be English from our poor culture towards food and attitude to service...this management are golden, the food divine, fresh and well executed- trust me the menu reflects this as it is succinct and beautifully devised. I've worked in microwave kitchens and I can assure you with every bite... More

We arrived for our 2 day stay to be told by a very off hand male receptionist that the heating wasn't working in our room. He said 'but the sun has been shining in the room so it should be OK'. No offer of a heater..extra blankets etc. Unfortunately the sun may have been shining but the broken window catches... More

I have stayed here in the past and enjoyed the hotel, it's food, the staff and found it to be good value. Earlier this year it changed ownership. The first thing that happened was that room rates increased substantially putting it in a similar bracket to better hotels in the area. The restaurant menu has also had a price hike.... More

An excellently run, friendly hotel with a very good restaurant menu, There is private parking which is a bonus. The hotel is centrally located right in the main square and near to places of interest. There are good shopping facilities available.

We did not stay at this hotel, but visited their restaurant while on a tour. It is so full of historic charm. The meal was quick and was delicious. Had fish and chips, and mushy peas...very tasty. The service was excellent and the restaurant was spotless. If we are ever in the area again, we will definitely dine there again.

Turning up unannounced is always a gamble at any hotel. As it turned out that they were fully booked. But....what I wasn't expecting was one of the most helpful staff members that I've met, Leanne, who probably phoned over 20 places to get us a room locally. Amazingly helpful and succeeded in getting us something. Whilst we'd love to have... More
