The hotel is very dark inside with almost black walls. The food is nouveau cuisine and there is not much of it after waiting a considerable time between courses. The English breakfast was over cooked and half a slice of the smallest black pudding was a joke. The room however was good but the mirror on the wall was too... More

Last year we stopped en-route in Tetbury, and had coffee at The Close, where we sat in the garden, a lovely relaxing area. This year again en-route we ordered a sandwich lunch and again sat in the garden. We were not disappointed, what a wonderful hotel, beautiful seating and dining areas. The lunch was great, service excellent and staff very... More

A great hotel in the small market town of Tetbury. Although on the Main Street it was very quiet with a nice garden to the rear. We stayed for three nights and had a wonderful room (The Spire).Meals in the Dining Room are for fine dining, while the brasserie was simpler fare. Both excellent meals and service. Redecorating still going... More

How lovely when a hotel turns out to be like the Close. Lovely room, beautiful décor, excellent staff and a glorious garden - and a bed so comfortable that only the Close breakfast could have lured us away. Recently renovated, the Close is the perfect place to stay if, like us, you are on your way to a garden tour... More
