My Daughter had her wedding here. Lovely venue for a wedding. Rooms were really nice, clean and well decorated not matter which room you were in, but being a listed building it is not very "disabled friendly" as there are steps everywhere. I struggled all day to get my Mother around the place as she uses walking sticks. This was... More

To us, the Bear at Rodborough is fairly local, but not a place we have visited for years. Attending a wedding reception there on Friday showed us what we had been missing. An absolutely charming venue - perfect for the occasion.Beautifully presented in all respects. Friendly helpful staff, fabulous food and splendid evening buffet . Many guests stayed overnight and...

Lovely hotel in the cotswolds, beautiful location. The staff can't do enough for you and make you extremely welcome. We regularly eat in the bar area but it really is time you changed your menu, same thing every time. The steaks are hit and miss, we last ordered the sirloin and it was raw as anything so it had to... More

Very comfortable pub/restaurant, menu limited, but I chose not to eat in hotel restaurant as I did not want formal dining. Service excellent, sausages excellent, steak not good so be careful what you choose.

This is a lovely hotel with great reception rooms in a nice environment. On the hotel side, the rooms in the old part of the building are full of character (note that the ones facing the front get quite a bit of traffic noise, moreso during the day) while the ones in the annexe are more 'standard' and quiet but...

Stayed here September for four days for a combined wedding guest/ holiday break. Hotel is definitely 3 star plus. The check in was very easy and friendly with the room being in the annexe at the back of the main building as I had asked for a quiet room. View from room was a nice one over the valley to... More

I love it here, slap bang in the middle of Rodborough Common in the rolling Cotswolds this is neither fine dining or pretentious. It's a 3 star hotel with broadly 4 or sometimes 5 star service, it's rustic and imperfect, the log fires might be lit, the 'local' staff do not profess to be Five star either, but they are... More

We had our wedding here on friday 22nd august. As a bride i stayed here the night before with my sister and my 9mth baby. We were made so welcome and the room was fantastic. On the wedding day itself we had a lovely day, although our meal ran over an hour late we were very pleased with our meals... More

Could be an excellent hotel, but doesn't yet make that grade. Billed as a 'Heritage Hotel' and indeed it is. Full of character, helped by the cows wandering around on the road outside. Dinner was pretty good, breakfast was excellent. Rooms overlooking the road can be noisy, those looking inwards grand. The hotel would benefit from employing some professionals. All... More
