We first stayed here last October when we gave it an excellent rating. Sadly our return visit didn't live up to the last one. We arrived on one of the hottest days of the year and so were able to spend a pleasant couple of hours by the pool.after changing for dinner, my husband went ahead to the pub over... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the trip, despite the crummy weather. The hotel is quirky and beautifully designed which gives it all its charm. The number of rooms and the lay out mean it's never chaotic and you can escape upstairs to the large room and feel like you're the only people in the hotel, except... More

A great small hotel in a fantastic setting. "Shabby chic" has been used to describe the Rectory in previous reviews and I think it sums it up perfectly, although no criticism is intended! Our room 'Belas Knap' was comfortable and there was plenty of room for a travel cot and our small dog! Special mention has to go to the... More

Beautiful property, excellent staff, excellent service. Lovely restaurant or they will book sister pub across the road (where we had great food) and was added to our hotel bill. No fuss, peaceful and quiett, great location for Westonbirt Arboretum. Lovely breakfast. Check comment below re mattress.

Rectory Hotel is like staying in someone's very lovely and very large house. The whole place has a homely feel, from the friendly welcome through to the comfy lounge complete with fireside games and fantastic rooms (amazing bath too!) The hotel was very quiet when we stayed - we were in fact the only people eating dinner one night. We... More

This is not the place to stay if you want high attention to detail, staff that will sort everything out for you in an instance, and gushing, sycophantic service. However, if you want to chill, eat some very decent food, and go for some lovely walks in the Cotswold countryside and get out of London for a weekend - and... More

My wife and I spent two nights here recently and had a lovely, relaxing break. The hotel has a lot of character and has been decorated in a shabby-chic style, which is much nicer and less fussy than many more traditional Cotswold hotels. We ate in the hotel the first evening, although were told on arrival that we would have... More

My wife surprised me with a stay at the Rectory for my birthday. We had a wonderful time. The staff are welcoming and very helpful. The rooms are quirky while being incredibly comfortable. My only regret is that we visited in the winter and could not take advantage of the pool. Highly recommend for a romantic getaway.

If you are looking for a super laid back escape this is the place for you. Don't expect attentive service, do expect happy smiley, laid back staff. We stayed for a Saturday night with our 2.5 year old daughter (who loved the place). The exterior of the building and the grounds are lovely and I would love to visit again... More
