This place is a real jewel in the middle of Tetbury. Everything about this hotel was fabulous. The eight course tasting menu with wine was fantastic. I cannot believe it is only rated a three star hotel..... The nightingale room was spacious with a garden view and the biggest bathroom I have ever seen. Well worth every penny.

We stayed at The Close for one evening while attending Paloma Faith at the Arboretum and after a brief but concise checking in process and intro to our delightful room, The Nightingale, we decided to take a cream tea out on the rear terrace. This proved to be an excellent choice as the selection of sandwiches and cakes was superb... More

We stayed for just one night, but loved our experience. You would not guess from the street side of the hotel what is behind. The garden is peaceful, sunny and tranquil. The staff are excellent and attentive. We had a second floor room facing the garden, which was spacious and light. We only had a bar snack in the evening,... More

We spent one night here in order to visit Highgrove Garden. Our room was on the top floor, with a beautiful sitting area, high quality rain shower bath, and extremely comfortable bed. The staff were delightful--very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our breakfast and wished we could have stayed longer in this charming town. Top marks for the Close Hotel!

Visited this hotel a few weeks ago for a celebration weekend. Lots of very positive things to say - the staff were very friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble.

Just stayed in this fantastic hotel. We were given the Dove room and couldn't have been more impressed with it. A beautiful roll top bath in the bathroom that faced a huge window, a huge shower and a full range of Molton Brown toiletries were just the start of the delights that awaited us.

My sister and I stayed at this hotel for two nights recently. We had a dog friendly room which was lovely, clean and had everything we needed. The hotel receptionist thought that we had not brought a dogs bed with us and offered us one which was most thoughtful. The room was smart and comfortable. Breakfast was very very good... More

The Close Hotel in Tetbury is a lovely place to stay. It is an old atmospheric building with pleasant staff and somewhere I would certainly stay again. Our room was very comfortable with a view of the gardens at the rear of the hotel. There is a library and bar where drinks and snacks are served with a dining room... More

Stayed here recently and had a nice stay overall. On the first night (Friday) we chose to eat in the Brasserie, not very busy with only 2 other tables sat at 8.30. We shared a Duck Confit hash brown with haricot beans and a fried egg for starters which was dreadful, the hash brown being encased in a hard breadcrumb... More
