Stayed here before commencing the 100 mile Cotswold Way. Room had all the required amenities and was comfortable enough but had to listen to someone else's TV till very late and then their alarm went off around 5am. Clearly the walls were paper thin. Good hearty breakfast to get us on our way.

Friendly service from Mark and the staff at the Pub, above and beyond assistance from Mark with a drop off for our walking tour and the Indian blokes in the night time restaurant... More

We spent the night here before starting the 100 mile Cotswold Way walk to Bath. Room large, airy, clean and comfortable. Unfortunately our room had paper thin walls and the whole night was noisy. Not from traffic but other people's TVs, snoring, phones, and doors banging. Not sure I slept till the early hours. Breakfast was good. Staff e trembly... More

This is a picture perfect, real life English Country Inn. Mark, the owner, lives down the street, pours the beers in his pub and moves your luggage to your next spot if your walking "The Way". He is a fount of knowledge of the area..besides being eternally cheerful. Our room was clean and rather large. It opened up to a... More

I stayed one night before starting the Cotswold Way walk, clean and tidy rooms, great restaurant (Indian), helpful staff. A little noisy as it was a Friday night and the rooms are not far from the main hotel, a little smoky with proximity of smoking areas, but I'd stay again.

Our room overlooked the garden... More

As a hotel OK. The smoking area is underneath the guest rooms. If you want to open your window expect smoke. Mainly it is the staff smoking through the day at night it is smokers who come to the restaurant. Swearing is a problem here. Both nights several of the smokers use the 'F' as a comma. Walking holidays are... More

The room was large and clean, but with no heating the room was very cold. I ended up sleeping with two duvets over me! Staff were pleasant but far from welcoming. The bar is pretty but a bit of a white van man hang out. The attached Indian restaurant however is excellent.. Though I wouldn't stay here again I would... More

We have used the Volunteer Inn luggage transfer service on 4 occasions for walking holidays in The Cotswolds, the most recent being The Donnington Way. Very efficient and great value for money and makes light work of walking.

Inn keeper was accommodating and friendly as we had no reservations. Centrally located on main street; rooms are in the back and quiet. Pub and restaurant on site. Would have stayed longer if we had not been expected elsewhere.
