We (me, husband, 2 yr old & 6month old) stayed earlier this month. Second time, staff very helpful and friendly, especially in the restaurant and at breakfast. On the whole our stay was good but I did have concerns considering it was a family room: 1 - The sofa bed mattress might as well have been non-existent as you could... More

I have stayed in quite a few village hotels around uk and I must say this is one of the best, nice location, helpful staff, the look and feel of all the hotel areas are very nice. The bedroom are more or less the same across the group but this one feels bigger and more modern. Only complaint and I... More

Recently attended a two day corporate training in the hotel and we were booked in one of the rooms too. First impression of the hotel was - looked a bit dark in the lobby/reception. I felt like I entered a dark pub and on arrival (got there just after 9am), there was no staff on the desk which made it... More

We spent Saturday night here and had a superb stay, can't wait to return. The hotel had so many amenities, plus sky tv in bedrooms which was unusual. The price we paid was a bargain. The leisure facilities were superb; lovely swimming pool, sauna and steam room plus a gym. Our room was lovely and comfortable and very spacious.

We stayed at the DeVere with our daughter, her wife and parents-in-law who were from Long Island USA. We were very impressed with the hotel and all it's facilities. The breakfast, in particular, was excellent. The decor most impressive, especially the light fittings in the breakfast area !! The bedroom a tad on the dark side but very smart and... More

My first stay here and had high expectations! Great location for what we needed. Communal areas great and room looked lovely too. Only when it came to going to bed it was a nightmare - no air con (room was unbearably hot even with the fan on all night!). We had a room by the bar area so had to... More

My wife and I stayed there with a group from Belgium (coach trip to the Cotswolds) for three nights. Although the hotel isn't located in an all too nice environment (outside the city centre surrounded by the usual out-of-town coterie e.g. cinema, sports centre, take-away) no complaints about our stay. Large, nicely decorated clean room with most mod cons (no... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night over Aug BH. On arrival we were told we were eligible for an upgrade and were allocated a Family Plus room, which was enormous. We'd booked a 'deal' - breakfast and 3 course evening meal. Excellent value at £79. Breakfast was good, but dinner was exceptional. My husband's calamari starter was cooked to... More
