My boyfriend and I booked 2 nights at the Burford for a wedding. We were given a warm welcome on arrival and we were shown to the Taynton room, which is up a narrow staircase, and located to the side of the building. We loved the room, with its low exposed beam (which my boyfriend kept walking into - not... More

Stayed last May and it was lovely. Quirky, tastefully decorated room. Attentive owner. Great breakfast choices. Delightful shops and restaurants close by. Would have stayed again this year but you were full.

First thing we noticed was there being a musty smell. Could not fault the staff during the stay all were very friendly. Had high expectations of this hotel but was sadly disappointed. The room was okay but looks like it has been neglected for a while and could do with a re-vamp. Such a shame as this hotel could be... More

Everything and more you would want from a hotel in the Cotswolds. Very charming and traditional with all modern conveniences. Delicious breakfast, very comfortable bed, great atmosphere and extremely helpful manager/owner, Ian. Highly recommend.

I've stayed at Burford House on numerous occasions now and it's never failed to impress. Tasteful, quaint and authentic Cotswolds surroundings - each room has its own unique character and lovely little touches, in particular the delicious home made cookies! The food is outstanding - I mean REALLY outstanding - all locally sourced ingredients. But the main reason I love... More

Stayed at the Burford House Hotel this weekend and have to say, I was very happy with the choice of doing so . Good welcoming and excellent room despite the fact that I think, it needs a bit of a refurbishment when it comes to the bathroom. Maybe because of the location of the hotel, there was a bit of...

We spent one night at the Burford House hotel and thought it was wonderful! Beautiful suite with really comfortable beds, lovely breakfast with white linen tablecloths. Everything was beautifully presented. We couldn't fault it and will be back!

We stayed in April and really enjoyed the surroundings. Lovely high street, the hotel was quaint and full of charm and the breakfast was amazing, really delicious. The only downside would be the shower, it was in need of redecorating; the shower head needed replacing as it wasn't very powerful at all and the toilet could do with some updating... More

Stayed here over Valentines weekend and had a most amazing stay. Initial impression was that it was very homely and very cosy. The Wychwood room we stayed in was lovely and very comfortable, staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Ian the manager and simon were fantastic. Valentines dinner was one of the nicest meals we have... More

What a real shame, such a promising start with a beautiful building and welcoming staff but what let the afternoon down was the standard of food. The sandwiches were ok but the scones and the cakes were dreadful. I have never eaten a scone that was so dry they almost turned to dust and how can you get every cake... More

Dear Suzanne We were very disappointed to read your review on the afternoon tea you had here at Burford House yesterday afternoon. We were even more disappointed that you did not feel that you could express your disappointment to any of our members of staff and requesting a box to take home your remaining cakes and scones certainly did not...
