I took the Evensong Music Class over a weekend during a longer visit to Britain. I was the only American. It was a wonderful experience musically and a great cultural immersion experience getting to know my fellow singers. The instructor was fantastic and the class culminated with performing the Evensong in a Medieval Cotswold Church. No typical tourist activity can... More

My husband and I stayed here with our 13month old. After we eventually found the place the receptionist was polite and checked us in. Room was fine but the double bed was more like a single and a half- it was rather small. The location was nice and quiet, and the breakfast was lovely the next morning. The are numerous... More

Dear Mrs Gallagher Thank you for your review, I've had a look at your reservation and it would appear that a small double room was booked. We have decided tor review our room categories following guest feedback and this will coincide with a new booking system which will be live in early 2015. I am pleased to see that you... More

Although we have visited Broadway for many years this was our first stay at Farncombe Estate and cant think how we have never discovered it before! Our room was small but clean and well equipped with everything we needed at a very reasonable price which included a substantial buffet breakfast. The grounds of the estate are superb with breathtaking views... More

Exactly what I expected. We will return. One couple had been here 3 times this year. Like a upmarket Campus. ROOMS: You get a good quality room with all facilities but without the corridors of a stuffy hotel. Big en suite bathrooms. Very modern and well thought out. Quiet. Loads of car parking nearby. And those views are fabulous! Lots... More

I booked my hotel room through Hotels.com and paid for the room at the time of booking. Unfortunately, the receiptionist could not find my payment and wanted to charge me twice. It was really disorganised at the receiption. I had to dig out my email confirmation for the booking and approval of the payment. Finally I was allowed to leave... More

perhaps the weather was slightly off putting, but the location outside of Broadway and the estate itself are excellent. This is a typical convention hotel and lacks charm. The room was comfortable and spacious, clean and reasonably well appointed. Bathroom modern and clean. The reception service leaves a good deal to be desired, though not unfriendly, it was very matter... More

As you drive out of Broadway and climb the hill the views of the Cotswolds are fabulous turn off and drive towards Farncombe and you will love the setting for this establishment.

Room was very clean and neat. Bed was extremely comfortable. Quietness ensured good night's sleep. Staff very pleasant. Thought we might be disturbed by other people here for conferences, but all was good. Great value for money with a good breakfast included.

Nothing too bad to say, nothing too good to say. Standard room was small, I hate to think was a small double was like. Ate from the bar menu, steak wasn't great, and I would have expected hand cut/double cooked type chips, rather than McDonalds type fries. Grounds are fantastic, pity I didn't get to use them.
