Booked a one night super Sunday package stay for my partner and I. Burford itself is the quintessential Cotswold town. Steeped in history and charming Cotswold architecture. On arrival at the Bay Tree the welcome was not as warm and friendly as we would expect. At the front desk, the receptionist said, quite curtly, 'May I help you'? I said... More

Stopped here recently for lunch and immediately felt at home .Decided on the festive 2 course lunch at £13.95 which seemed good value and proved to be one of the best i've eaten .Smoked salmon starter followed by a turkey main with succulent turkey and delicious cranberry sauce.,served in a classical dining room experience.. The staff were efficient and attentive... More

We couldn't be happier with our wedding at The Bay Tree Hotel in Burford. In the lead up to the day, Maureen, the wedding planner, was professional and we found her help and support invaluable. With the wedding being booked in a hotel, we expected the content to be relatively rigid, but we were delighted to find that there was... More

Stayed at the Bay Tree Hotel for two nights with friends and had a lovely time. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food absolutely delicious. It has a cosy bar, and some attractive little side rooms with log fires where you can sit and have a coffee or drink when you come in from the cold. The bedrooms... More

Two character hotels under the same ownership just a few yards from each other - so which one to choose for your stay in Burford? Well, having stayed in both, I would definitely recommend The Lamb Inn. They are of a similar size; the prices and the facilities are pretty much the same in both, although The Bay Tree has... More

I have been lucky enough to visit the Baytree on various occasions during the last 15 years or so and it is a delightful hidden gem with lovely rooms, character and warm bar/restaurant. I was very disappointed on this occasion and feel compelled to write a review (not what I normally do). Upon checking in, my key could not be... More

I love the Bay Tree. The open fires, the little nooks and crannies, the original rooms. And I still love all of that despite coming away from the last visit a bit disapointed. All the good things are still there but the service in the bar and the restaurant is not as good. A number of the staff at dinner... More

We had a very good stay in one of the junior suites and the staff were very good generally except for one female member of the reception staff, of the longest tenure, who would benefit from having her hospitality skills refreshed.

Stayed for a wedding last month in one of the garden rooms of this beautiful old hotel. Old, but completely renovated to an extremely high standard! The room was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and luxurious. Everything from the well kept beer to the fantastic food and service made this a very memorable stay. I would thoroughly recommend staying here if... More

Stayed at the Bay Tree for my niece's wedding, what can I say, wow, everything was excellent. My room was lovely with a very big comfy bed and the Molton Brown toiletries were a very nice touch. The food and service were outstanding, what lovely staff, nothing too much trouble, the waiters were attentive without being intrusive. I love Burford... More
