The hotel is a lovely 16th century structure on a quiet street in the charming Cotswold village of Burford, The staff were very courteous, efficient, and eager to make your stay at the hotel a delightful experience. The food and service were outstanding, and the bedroom was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The dining room overlooks a well-tended garden, which... More

Had lunch there today outside in the garden. Beautiful gardens, good food and good service. Burford can be a bustling place and this a haven. Plenty of parking too. We had our daughters wedding there in 2008 and it was lovely to return for a brief visit.

What a lovely hotel. Just up the road from the high street, with car park and lovely and quiet. It has a delightful garden with deck chairs for finishing off the last rays of the sun. You can sit out on the terrace for food from the bar menu. We arrived around 1pm and while waiting for our room to... More

I was not staying at the hotel but a friend and I ate in the bar area of the hotel. The menu sounded interesting with a good choice of food. It was shame that the quality of the food was so disappointing. I think the kitchen was trying to be too clever but did not live up to expectations. I... More

Having seen some previous reviews, we were slightly anxious about taking our 2 children (2 and4) to dinner. Happily our fears were unfounded. The staff were amazing with the children and really helpful and attentive. We really enjoyed our stay; beautiful location, comfortable rooms and good food. Without exception, we found the service to be excellent.

As an occasional visitor to Burford I always jump at the opportunity to stay at The Lamb next door. Unfortunately next door was full so I booked The Bay Tree as the hotel belongs to the same parent company and from the exterior, looked similar but sadly there the similarity ends. I was promised a pleasant room, as I explained... More

We stayed at the Bay Tree for one night as we had a wedding nearby. With a 2.5 year old we are always wary of room sizes for his travel cot and how child friendly places are, plus the mrs likes somewhere nice to stay. After looking at all the websites for hotels in the area we decided to go... More
