My husband and I stayed here recently as a night away after spending the day in burford. We found that the room was a bit over priced for the size, the double bed was made up of two single beds. The shower couldn't be used if the sink was being used. There was a funny smell up the stairs going... More

This hotel is literally at the gateway to the Cotswolds. Easy driving distance of Oxford, Cheltenham too. Great location in Burford. Don't be put off by the fact it's on a roundabout and busy road. Once inside the hotel you would never know. Friendly clean and comfortable . We had a four poster room which was lovely. Spacious and spotless.... More

Superb food. My evening meal was one of the best meals I've had for years. Our room was very comfortable and included a four poster bed. All the staff were very friendly and helpful at all times and there was a generally friendly ambience about both the hotel and the town.

The lunch was very freshly cooked, tasty and a nice menu. The manager spoilt us with an advance serving of an amazing chocolate, hazelnut torte with... More

We arrived on Sunday afternoon and were booked in at Burford Lodge for two nights. As Burford Lodge don't do evening meals, we took a walk into Burford to check out the pubs/restaurants to have an evening meal. After reviewing all the menus we decided on the Gateway Hotel - what a great decision! The food, service and ambience was... More

We had already eaten in the Pub/Restaurant to this hotel on a number of occasions when visiting the COTSWOLDS and always thoroughly enjoyed the food - excellent size portions and a good choice on the menu. Children's menu also available. We arranged a 1 night stay for a family of 6 during the CHRISTMAS period but unfortunately due to illness... More

My family and I meet here every year for our annual Christmas dinner and are never disappointed. The food is always stunning, and we are always treated to our own little room. Can't wait for Christmas 2015!

This is a really welcoming hotel with great staff who provided excellent service There is lots of on site parking and it is in an excellent position for exploring the Cotswolds. The bedrooms are very clean, comfortable and well appointed. but the whole place seemed to be very over-heated. If you like the bedroom window open there is a lot... More
