This is a real gem on the edge of the Cotswolds with fabulous views over the vale of Evesham; on a summer's night you can't beat the sunset view from the roomy garden, restaurant or bar. Add to that a great standard of service and a good variety of decent food and drinks... why stay anywhere else? OK, the room... More

Stayed one night at thus hotel. Staff is young, international ans super friendly. Everything gets sorted. The hotel is just a bit of the Cotswold way at a busy road. The rooms are a bit old and next to the road. Was not a problem though for us. Had a good night's sleep. Kitchen is very good, gave us also... More

This is my favourite place in the world. I've done a fair bit of travelling, too. Always a friendly welcome, delicious and good-value food, and - here's what I pay the taxi driver for - a knock-out view. I now live away from Cheltenham but always try and fit in a visit to The Rising Sun whenever I return. It's... More

The rooms are in need of an overhaul otherwise I would give this an excellent review It is always a busy hotel but still manages to cater for everyone; the food is... More

Lovely views from their gardens once you have negotiated the steeply sloping car park that always seems to attract bad / selfish parking from some people. Food is good and fair value with a menu to suit all appetites and budgets I think. As I have my dog we always sit in the garden but the staff are happy to... More

I visited yesterday with my partner for a last minute dinner in the sun and overall it was lovely. Waiting staff could have been more friendly and smiled more and also served cutlery at the table... Unfortunately when our food was brought out, there wasn't any cutlery and it took ages for the waitress to return with cutlery which left... More

We are sad to hear that you had to wait for cutlery, although on busier days we endeavour to provide the best service as possible, sometimes we are strained and we offer our apologies if this affected your experience. We have two stations with cutlery stands, one inside and one outside, so we will take feedback and attempt to keep... More

We met friends for lunch here. The service was good & the only negative about the food was the fish & chips were quite greasy. All other meals were fine though. We had a table with a lovely view & we will return.

This is a review on behalf of my grandparents who stayed there in February 2015. We all went for a meal there together though as well. The food was excellent and my grandparents said that the breakfast was too. The decor was a little dated but very clean and the staff were extremely helpful (I have a very tedious nut... More
