The decor is just wonderful and the staff are exceptionally friendly. We had a three course meal and there was plenty of food BUT it was only warm. I feel that it had been pre-plated and much too early. It lacked the real Christmas touch. The pork did not have crackle, there was no stuffing and the meat was all... More

I cannot give you a review on value for money as this was a gift from a family member. But our voucher included 1 nights accommodation, breakfast and dinner for two in their Manor at Cotswold Gardens Restaurant. Our dinner in the restaurant was fantastic, we could not fault anything. The service was friendly, quick and the food was outstanding.... More

Had booked into a hotel locally to the BW Cotswold but due to a total botch-up by Expedia my room was not available when I arrived. The guy at the hotel reception pointed me towards the BW Cotswold and was greeted by what I can only say was one of the most friendly welcomes by a reception staff member I... More

Booked last minute due to job in Armidale. Arrived late at 2145 and found that the reception was still open and was met with a friendly smile and good service. Rooms are clean and comfortable and overall was a good stay. Great breakfast that kept me going all day. Have booked two nights for a trip there next year.

We stayed recently at this motel (Room 23) in Armidale. We were there for a wedding for which we received a discount. The room we had was small. The bed/mattress needed replacing. As we had friends staying across the road at The Powerhouse it was easy to compare. For an extra $40 (on the web there is only a $10... More

Nice clean rooms with good showers and very comfy bed. Short walk fom town centre. Wifi was poor, however, very slow and intermittent. We could really only use it in the hotel lobby or sitting outside, not in room. However the manager gave us a discount, even before we asked, because of this. Would recommend
