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.

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...

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

I have to say I was a bit sceptical when I heard this is a conference centre but it is a delightful place to stay set in the Cotswolds. It's a bit of a trek through the countryside, but that is the reason we went, to Broadway which is a great little village. Friendly, very clean. They are going through... More

Spend a wonderful Valentine's weekend here and it was perfect to explore the Cotswolds by car. Entrance to the Estate is beautiful with a view across the valley. Didn't know beforehand that renovations to the dining area took place so a disappointment. Had two lovely cooked breakfasts at main reception.
