Good Points - fantastic customer service (the receptionist was brilliant in helping sort us out and when no taxis were available for many hours and it looked liked we would miss our wedding that we were in the Cotswolds for, one of the receptionist drove us to the venue!) - nice location - room has nice touches (a doodle pad,...

We stayed here recently for our 1st wedding anniversary, after hunting around the Cotswolds for somewhere a bit more special to stay. We stayed in The Fish which for some reason isn't listed on TripAdviser, which was at the bottom of the estate. The place itself is beautiful and set in several hundred acres of land. We chose The Fish... More

Farncombe Estate Conference Centre & B&B hotel (recently renamed The Fish) sitting in 400 acres off the brow of Fish Hill overlooking Broadway is a really nice looking place and it must have one of the longest driveways from the road of any hotel in the UK. If you check the place out on Google Maps don’t believe Google’s location... More

Gorgeous hotel could not recommend staying here enough! Staff so friendly and helpful right from enquiring to book a room to check out!!!! Particularly the staff on breakfast with a child who was very curious they couldn't do enough and nothing was too much bother! Lovely breakfast selection aswell (particularly for a vegetarian!) The room we had (71) very spacious... More

We stayed in The Dormy House for our first night and it would be unfair to compare our second night on the estate with that but what Farncombe provides is something completely different. We were at a 2 day conference but it felt less like a conference centre than any I've been too. It was very relaxed and calming with... 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

Dear Stephanie Thanks for sharing your review on TripAdvisor, we are you say in the middle of a private 400 acre estate offering great views over the vale of Evesham. I noticed that you stayed in April and we hadn't finished our bedroom refurbishment at that time, we have listened to our guests' feedback and have been upgrading bedrooms so... 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

As regular visitors to the Cotswolds - we came across a great deal for this centre for b & b via Twitter. It is currently being launched as the new 'Fish Hotel' (in June I believe) so were the first guests on Friday to see the fabulous new decor/restaurant etc. All very stylish, and welcoming - the fire was especially...
