The location was excellent, right on the main street in reach of shops and restaurants. The staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was basic but good. The room itself was also basic but with some rustic charm, a lovely fireplace etc...

We stayed hear last night and found it to be fine. The staff were lovely and friendly and kindly let us in the room early which was much appreciated. We love the area. Only thorn in our side is the taxi situation, they are very very very expensive, we were charged £30 for a seven mile journey and £50 to... More

Old-fashioned pub in Burford's High Street, with old fashioned (but perfectly adequate) rooms to match. The room itself was clean, quiet and boasted a comfortable bed and flat screen television. The bathroom was next door rather than ensuite, and was distinctly old fashioned and a little musty, with a shower attachment designed for "finishing off" rather than standing under, but... More

This is a lovely hotel in the centre of Burford. We stayed here one night on bed and breakfast basis. We arrived early as we had a wedding to attend and the staff were very kind enough to let us into our room early. Our room was comfortable and we also had a separate private bathroom. Staff were very friendly... More

Dear Sirs Myself, my wife and her parents travelled to the Cotswolds on 31st May, specifically to visit the Cotswold Wildlife Park. I had been there before with my wife about 3 years ago and we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience and as her parents had not been before they asked us to take them the next time we went.... More

I was disappointed to read your review, especially as I was the person that took your original booking. At the time of booking, I did inform your wife that we did not have two quiet rooms available and that we would have live music playing. She said "dont worry we like a bit of live music, in fact we will... More

This is a charming, typically English pub in the heart of the Cotswolds. Downstairs it is the local, main street pub with a rich customer base of local people. Upstairs the old rooms have been done up nicely in keeping with the constraints that apply to ancient buildings. The staff are friendly and service oriented and the food is excellent.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed a couple of nights spent here. The room (courtyard) was clean, comfortable and very quiet. Location is great for exploring al the little shops on the high street. Every member of staff was friendly and courteous and they even went out of their way to do a dessert for us that wasn't on the menu. Sports on... More

Nobody on reception when I arrived and staff did not look 'happy to help'. The room smelled stale as if dogs had been in there. The (four poster) bed was the worst I've ever experienced - I think the springs must have gone - I just sunk when I got in it and felt lumps and bumps. You think hotels... More

We are a small Coaching Inn. As such we do not man the reception desk continually. The bar is just 20 feet from the reception desk and I would suggest almost permanently manned. Our staff our continually praised on all review sites as to their friendliness so I am surprised you did not find them accommodating. We do not ever... More

We stayed on an Amazon Local deal and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. There were special offers on the pizzas which were huge and delicious and the lamb I had the first evening was the best flavoured I have ever tasted. My partner's fish and chips was also first class. Even the desserts were home made... More
