Had 4 nights here and I must say it is everything everyone says - the standard of the rooms are extremely high and the bed was probably the most comfortable we have slept in at a b&b. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff had great local knowledge. The small attentions to detail like the flasks of fresh milk... More

The attention to detail was first class , the food (both dinner and Breakfast) was fantastic. The beer was served at the correct temperature , and the wine was excellent and... More

Stayed for one night and must say was taken aback how lovely this hotel was. Set in a little village it was Very peaceful, excellent service and lovely weekend away without the kids! The breakfast was lovely and would definitely recommend a visit.

I have never been so disappointed at arriving late at a hotel as I was with this Cotswold nugget of isolated loveliness. Snuggled in the depths of a village I have never been to and one you'd never just 'land up' in, the Maytime is a contemporary conversion of what seems to have been a stables or barn back in... More

I took my wife, son & grandson for Sunday lunch yesterday after having received glowing reports only to find that the Maytime does not live up to expectations. We were welcomed & offered a choice of tables and given the menus. 3 of us chose the beef & one pork. The meals arrived fully plated & the portions were on... More

Tucked away in the perfect little village of Astill, this inn is great! Lovely room, good bed, fabulous shower and beautifully furnished, what more could you want? How about excellent service, great food and plenty of parking? One of the best.

We stayed at the maytime on fri 23rd May and it is truly our little piece of heaven. We Have been coming to The Cotswolds for 30 years and believe we have found the most Idyllic spot there. The Maytime is quite simply the most wonderful place to stay, the staff are very Friendly and always have time for a... More

We found this hotel by mistake and what a great place to stay. Very quiet and peaceful and excellent rooms and meals. I stayed in the Hunter Room that was as good as any hotel room I have stayed in.Excellent Wi-Fi great food and service in a beautiful small English village. Will be back again when next in the UK.

Although a little off the beaten track a lovely relaxing, tranquil place to stay with very easy access to Burford, if you have a car. Beautiful decor, spotlessly clean and the bed was so comfortable. We stayed in the Boot Room and although not huge, best use has been made of the space and there are lots of nooks and... More

Stayed in the yard & groom room which was rather small but not too bad as we were only there for two nights but my daughter was in The Boot room next door and was quite a bit bigger. Food and service superb. nothing was too much trouble. It was a couple of miles outside Burford but if you have... More
