We decided to stay here after visiting the village for the day. When I enquired about a room I was offered a look at the last available one, which was the Swinbrook at the top of the Inn. It was lovely with a huge soft bed and a characteristic sloping floor! There was also complimentary sherry, very English. We ate... More

We have just had a few days break in Burford, staying at The Highway Inn. The stay was excellent from the start to finish, with the bar man taking our luggage up to the room and then presenting us with a couple of glasses of bubbly at dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. The food was excellent, and I can... More

Great place to stay-lovely staff. Stayed for 2 nights here on our way to Wales. Great restaurants around. Burford lovely place to stay. Plus perfect poached eggs which is very important ;) the only thing I will fault is the shower-wasn't very strong at all. But that's the only thing I would fault. Many thanks :)

We've just returned from a short break - 2 nights, 3 days - in the Cotswolds, staying at the Highway Inn. We were looking for a comfortable and dog-friendly hotel as a base for exploring the area. I'm glad to say we got everything we hoped for and more. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Our room (Fulford) was... More

The highway inn is in the high street and was the best pub we ate in while we were there (ate in 3 pubs). The staff were attentive and made sure we had a nice evening. We ended up with a bay window which was nice to watch the world go by. We had the breads to start which is... More

The three of us were looking for a great place to lunch and a local shopkeeper suggested the Highway Inn in the Main Street. It is an amazing 15th century pub. The dining area was small but homely. We ordered pies with mash which seemed to be taking awhile. Just as we discussed this the meals appeared with the waitress... More

A great hotel, good service and friendly staff. Food way really good. Burford 4 poster room was large. Would recommend .Great location on the high street. The only problem is not parking at the hotel. But can park on the street. Park across the road from the hotel and there is no time limit.

The burger I had there was excellent in all is part. Perfectly cooked and very tasty, it made me a very satisfied customer. Chips were good, but the quantity wasn’t quite enough, potatoes sure aren’t that expensive and the food a tad pricey, so it would be nice to see the quantity double. Dessert as well are on the small... More

I am delighted you enjoyed your burger. I have been told on many occassions that it is the best burger the diner has ever had. I am sorry you felt there was not enouigh chips with your meal, I can honestly say no one has ever said to me that the portion could be bigger, it is usually the opposite... More

A beautiful, historic building, with friendly, helpful staff, wonderful food and quirky, character filled rooms, but the traffic noise overnight is undeniably bad. During our 2 night stay there, large lorries thundered past at speed all night, the shops opposite had lots of noisy deliveries at 3am, large bins were emptied into bin lorries right under our window first thing....

Stayed for one night on business in the area, lovely and welcoming place to stay in the heart of Burford Top floor room with own bathroom was quirky and comfortable. Truly rustic/antique style hotel. Would definitely return for a longer leisurely stay. Yummy breakfast and very friendly staff.
