We stayed here for three nights, and to say the staff and service was "second to none" would be an understatement. they do actually make this B&B what it is. We only ate there one evening and the food was excellent, as was the breakfasts. Unfortunately a couple of things let things down, otherwise our stay would have been superb:... More

Three of us ate last night & can't fault the experience. The staff & the service were great & the meals, well, they were absolutely superb. We will be back very soon & will most certainly be singing your praises to everyone we know... thank you !

We booked to stay here on New Years Eve with friends. We have 4 children between us ranging from 2 to 10. We both had family rooms which we both said wow to as we walked into the room. It was very clean and well maintained with a powerful shower and comfortable beds. We didn't stay for the special New... More

Booked a table for 10 of us. On arrival table was laid out ready for us, Lovely atmosphere with log fire. Took a while for waitress to take our food order. Once taken we were told no Fishcakes left, so 2 of us choose something else. 10 minutes later waitress came back and told us only 2 beefburgers left -... More

Having stayed here previously, we decided to drop in for some lunch. The place is a rugby player's dream with all sorts of Welsh rugby union memorabilia on the walls. It is also very much a country pub too with lots of exposed brick and wooden beams. The food was superb, freshly cooked and great taste. As it was lunchtime... More

We recently stayed at this hotel. We've stayed there a few years previously and it was fine but standards seem to have slipped. The room we had was very tired. There was wallpaper peeling off and damp which was not ideal when my toddler suffers with asthma. The chest of drawers had 2 tubs of mini pies in one of... More

Really looking forward to staying here as the web-photo's were fab, bright modern rooms. Unfortunately on entering the room no. 4 I was disappointed, almost had a sulk, was looking forward to a night away and a bit of luxury, the room was very hot, the carpet very tired, very dark and the bathroom circa 1980 ish, horrible looking bath...

My partner and I stayed for just one night whilst touring the Cotswolds. Our room was excellent (plenty of room, very clean, comfortable bed & quiet). The food in the restaurant at dinner was superb (I can recommend the shoulder of lamb) and we were served a delightful breakfast (we had the scrambled egg & smoked salmon). Difficult to find...
