Positives: Lovely views, staff and food. Weather and company was good. On the not so good rooms are very tired looking, decor and furnishing throughout need an overhaul! Bathrooms, I don't wish to think about, but please please in general teach your 'cleaners' how to clean, dusting would be start.

Stayed here last weekend as we attended a wedding at Ellenborough Park. It is a great location for doing this as it is about half a mile down/up the hill and alot cheaper !! but only 5 mins away in the car or taxi. The hotel was easy to find and the lady on reception was very welcoming. We were... More

Nice pub with a view to die for. Food is ok, but you'll enjoy the view more to be honest. We ordered 6 meals between us, and at least half were very (very) marginal. The prices suggest to you that it's going to be a lot more desirable than the reality. Good deserts though, if you like that sort of... More

We have just enjoyed two comfortable nights here and a family lunch party. The service is brilliant. The food is very good. No hesitation in recommending this honest and unpretentious hotel. The hanging baskets are outstanding at this time of year and frame the magnificent views.

Stayed for one night at a cost of £110 not including breakfast - definately not worth it. Good points are the amazing view and large bedroom. Minus points are that bedroom needed refurbishment, windowsill was very sticky, bathroom was grotty with broken towel rail lying on the floor. We saw the lunch and evening meals - looked to be of...

The Rising Sun is a wonderfully located hotel and restaurant with views forever. To the rear of the hotel parking lot is a walking trail - with a boatload of sheep hanging out - giving a cozy vibe to the whole scene. I believe this trail hooks up with the Cotswolds Trail which allows people to walk from village to... More
