We stayed 2 nights at The Highway Inn in Burford and thoroughly recommend it. The owners are relatively new there but definitely know already how to make guests welcome. The rooms were nicely appointed and the quality of food was excellent. Burford is ideal for exploring the Cotswolds and the Highway Inn situated in this small town's historic street is... More

The Highway is a really nice small hotel on the Main Street in what is among the nicest of those small towns in the Cotswolds. We had a lovely friendly welcome and the bedroom, whilst quirky and full of character, has pretty much everything you need. OK - the pipes might rattle a bit and water pressure goes up and... More

We have stayed here before and enjoyed our stay then so re-booked. We had a bit of difficulty when we first arrived as we had booked (by accident, but it was an easy mistake to make on their website) a room with a separate bathroom down the corridor. The owners are new since we stayed last time - it would... More

This was an offer I took advantage of from Amazon. The hotel is on the main street in Burford which is handy. We had to search to find anyone to check us in and were not pleased to find that our bathroom was separate from our bedroom. Not good for night time visits. We were alos a bit disconcerted when...

We stopped in Burford, which we know well, en route between overnights at friends. The Highway Inn was one of the most inviting places on the High Street. We wanted a light lunch before a ramble around the shops. Nice ambience, comfortable, imaginative quality menu stating that everything was cooked by the chef. Sandwiches and soup available as well as... More

We had a voucher break here and I have to say the staff were very friendly. The room clean warm and comfortable with all the quirks you would expect from a 15th century building. The food was first class both dinner and breakfast and Burford is well worth a visit. Great trip.

We booked our stay at the Highway Inn using an Amazon local voucher - an absolute bargain! We stayed in Widford room and found it quite old fashioned compared to the photos on the website that make the rooms look more modern. However, it was beautifully clean with an extremely comfortable bed: everything we needed for a good half-term rest.... More

Many thanks for your kind review, it is always lovely to get positive feedback and we do take note of comments in our quest to improve the facilities as much as is possible in a 1480 building. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Highway - hopefully with a more powerful shower restored! More

Booked this due to good reviews - photos on website also looked good and showed nice rooms. Maybe we just had a bad room but the widiford was very disappointing! Food was good but the service we experienced was not great and not very attentive. Overall had a nice stay and burford was lovely but disappointed with quality of room!... More

Its a fact of life that one person's idea of lovely is not another's as you will see from the review above where the couple liked Widford room very much. We have a lot of guests who comment that the rooms are well represented on our website but its always difficult to reflect everything in a totally true fashion with... More

Excellent- Booked online the day before arrival as researched and recommended in the GPG 14 and not disappointed. Slightly chaotic check in but welcome,atmosphere, sherry in room,dinner, breakfast couldn't be faulted. Would book again as Burford good for a browse after breakfast before we moved on.

This is a very authentic Cotswold accommodation. When checking out the inn's website pre-trip, I looked at the photos and descriptions of available rooms, and based on what I read there and on Trip Advisor, we chose the Taynton Room. My husband and I had quite a bit of luggage, as we had come over on the Queen Mary 2,... More

i am sorry you were disappointed with your stay, many people request Taynton because it is quirky and it has its own separate floor. Unfortunately in 1480 the population were a great deal shorter than we all are today, and we do have notices warning people of the lack of height in that room - we also do tell people... More
