Stayed here recently for one night at the start of the Cotswold Way, not a good start as could not find any staff but walked to the rear and found one working in the Cycle Hire and he helped us check in etc.Rooms are situated to the side of the Inn and the Indian restaurant. 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.

Another wonderful stay at the Volunteer Inn. Was so happy to find that nothing had changed and it's still the charming little inn I remembered ;-) I have nothing but praise for the hotel. Welcoming owners, and our bedroom (number 8) was spacious and bright. Beds very comfy. The adjoining restaurant serves superb Indian cuisine that everyone in the village... More

We stayed there for 2 nights and we had a very spacious family room with ensuite bathroom. Being a pub as well it was a bit noisy at night but nothing too bad. It is centrally located in town with shops and restaurants nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, Breakfast was good as well.

We were going to a wedding and found the Volunteer Inn to be almost half the price of the wedding venue. The room was clean and a good size, with tea and coffee making facilities and a comfortable bed. The bathroom was very clean and modern. The pub part of the inn was frequented by locals and was very friendly.... More

We were looking for a good value place to stay in Chipping Campden for a fleeting visit before starting upon the Cotswolds Way. The Volunteer ticked all the boxes. The staff were overwhelmingly accomodating - they arrange for breakfast (cereal/toast) for 6am and let us store provisions in the fridge for our lunch the next day. The Indian restaurant which...

We stayed here for a night in March. The rooms were lovely and the location is brilliant. The one thing that really lets the place down is the noise. The soundproofing is terrible and all the noise from the pub can we heard in the room. Music started at about 11pm. When I went speak to the staff the lady... More

"There can be some noise from the pub during busy times" quote unquote... this is stated on our web site and also on our web page with Booking.com. You booked via Booking.com and therefore either did not read the information provided or read it and chose to ignore it or cannot read. More
