Hidden away high on a hill overlooking the beautiful Cotswolds, this estate is simply marvellous! The accommodation was located in various blocks around the property - our room in Brooke House, overloooked the sweeping rear fields - terrific. The room itself was very comfortable and clean with everything we needed. The dining area and lounge were superb, and pre-dinner drinks... More

We stayed here as a participant of a classic car rally with 70 cars. The weather helped but it is a stunning location on a Cotswold hillside with excellent comfortable rooms and very pleasant helpful well trained staff. Relaxed but professional atmosphere was appreciated. Our accommodation was in various blocks around the hillside site so a bit of exercise necessary... More

Bed, location, facilities, staff, breakfast, cleanliness all pretty much on the spot! Meals at dinner time could have been better with the set price. But all in all our stay was superb on a long weekend holiday. Breakfast in particular was absolutely incredible. Susie is delightful and refreshing to see in the morning, very polite and classy lady!

Stopped here this past weekend and really enjoyed it. The location was fantastic with a great view and it was not far to drive to all the surrounding villages and towns. It didn't feel like a conference centre, which was the impression I had got from different websites and felt more like a hotel. I wouldn't say it was overly... More

Thank you for your lovely review, I'm so sorry that one of our team seemed abrupt when you tried to check in early. Wherever possible we do try to get people straight into their rooms when they arrive. We're really happy that you feel we are more like a hotel then a conference centre because that's one of our primary... More

Just a heads up, this isnt a small little B&B by the side of the road as it might seem from the photos, its a larger spread out complex of buildings which is a sort of conference centre with some other hotel too. The setting is lovley, high up in the hills, very secluded. The room was clean and bed... More

Just back from a 1 night stay. Stunning location. Definitely felt more like a hotel than a conference centre. We were in the building closest to reception, Dales Court, and the rooms were lovely. The bed was soooo comfortable and views were beautiful. The breakfast was delicious and there was so much choice! Bar area lovely and really friendly barman.... More

They are focusing on the estate as a leisure complex.Not everyone may like the self service styled restaurant but we found it relaxing and plenty of staff on hand should you need anything. We actually like the food for dinner and breakfast. This stay was extremely good value and I expect the prices to rise. Our room was in Fox?... More

I stayed here once before with work on a conference and was very impressed. My boyfriend and I wanted to go and stay in the Cotswolds and found that the rates where a lot more competitive than many local hotels so we booked in for 3 nights. On arrival we were told we had been upgraded to a superior room... More
