We loved the character and charm of the hotel but it is in need of a little TLC. We booked the Burford four poster room as it was a special occasion. The room was lovely and spacious with a very comfortable bed but was let down by the musty smell, missing handles on the wardrobe doors and drawers and a... More

First impressions were poor, as we hadn't realised how busy the High St would be or how difficult to get parked. There is a two hour restriction during the day on the Highway Inn side of the street, and in any case parking is much in demand. The room was smaller than we expected, with a window facing directly on... More

We were hesitant to book this hotel as we were coming from London and were looking for somewhere a little more central in the cotswolds. That being said, if you have a car the actual area is only around an hour or 2 from one side to the other so it worked out perfectly!! The rooms were so quaint and... More

This place is on a very picturesque high street and benefits from being in the centre of the village. There is parking right outside of you're luck enough to get a space. The accommodation is what I would describe as simple, adequate, clean, slightly rustic and would possibly benefit from a little investment here and there. There is a hanging... More

We stayed in this lovely Inn in the centre of Burford to meet friends for the weekend. We reserved a table for the evening for 4, just in case we couldn't get in anywhere else? So pleased we did, as it was busy but the food & service was great. Staff attentive, food fabulous and the morning breakfast was plentiful... More

Burford is an excellent location for touring the Cotswolds. The Highway Inn is located on the High Street within walking distances of all the town has to offer besides being very close to restaurants, shops and bars. The Inn, built in 1480, is full of character. The food was top class, both dinner and breakfast and the staff were brilliant.... More

A friend and I stayed here for a couple of nights recently and we were not disappointed. We requested a twin room upon booking and were accommodated in the family room which was a good size, with a double and a single bed, two chairs, a little table and an en suite bathroom with a shower over the bath.

I've been a regular at The Highway for several years. I've always liked it, but the food has just got better and better, without getting more expensive. I took my extended family there last night and we couldn't stop ooh-ing and aah-ing about how great the food was. It's modern without being 'trendy'. Plus friendly staff who are not too... More

Perfect place to go for a nice dinner in Burford. Staff were great and food was outstanding, as well as being very well priced! We visited on a Saturday night and service was extremely quick, the Cotswolds beer was also very tasty! Would definitely return.
