We had our Christmas meal last week and the food was fantastic. The staff are polite and hardworking. The rooms are spotlessly clean and we even take our puppy to stay and she is allowed in the bar. This hotel is worth every penny and a must for all travelers we wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Didn't stay here, but ate in the bar twice during our stay in Burford. Friendly staff and service. Excellent food. Would reccomend as a place to stay or for eating. Very convenient to walk into town if staying here.

I am a regular guest at the Gateway and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Andy and Julia , the owners, have created a very relaxed, warm welcoming establishment. The bar staff are very attentive and will cater for your every whim. You will not be disappointed with your stay at the Burford Gateway

This is a hotel that exceeds expectations. They have a new(ish) chef who has a wonderfully light touch with a very diverse menu, and who has presentation down to a fine art, that of food which is for eating, not meeting some visual benchmark from the Royal Academy! The bar area is warm and comfortable, amongst the many offerings we... More

A wonderful friendly and warm atmosphere hotel in a superb location. Great food, bar and parking facilities too. Dog friendly. Burford, where the hotel is located, is quaint, lovely shops and pubs. There are good walks from the hotel too, including a good 5.3 mile circular walk.

The room was so out of date it was like stepping into the 1960's. The bedrooms and bathrooms desperately need updating. We couldn't shut our very inferior built in wardrobe folding door. I caught my trousers on a nail on the inside of the bathroom door and the tiling and fittings in our bathroom were extremely tiried. However, the staff... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night, on the way back home from a trip to the north of England. The hotel was very nice with a very busy bar area. The room we had was in the annex, as the main building was fully booked. It was warm and clean with all the things you need, and the... More

I had a 3-night stay here and was very comfortable. It's a lovely hotel - full of Cotswold charm. It's independently run, so you don't get the feeling of "corporate policies" at all. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, if a tad on the small side - I do think two people might... More

Take a lovely Cotswold village. Add a characterful hotel, with modern room conveniences. Add a comfortable bed that invited sleep. Add a good evening meal, with quality and quantity. Add a great choice of breakfast buffet. Add a staff who were friendly, respectful and utterly efficient. Result. Perfection. OK, so the bath and shower pressure were a bit low -... More
