My 'double room for single occupancy' was fine for one, but would have been very cramped for two. The age of the building is reflected in the gradient of the floor. To say you need a rope and crampons for a trip to the bathroom is a slight exaggeration, but I would certainly not recommend it for anyone a little... More

This is not a hotel. It's a bunch of rooms over a noisy pub. Unfriendly, no warmth, horrible furniture, not very clean. Had to change pillows due to stains. Very poor breakfast. One of the worst hotels we've ever been in.

We booked The Kings Arms Hotel at the last minute to give us a room for the night after a family wedding in nearby Tetbury. We requested an early check-in so that we could change for the wedding and were impressed by the way in which staff helped to accommodate us. We were a little unsure of what we were... More

We recently visited The Kings Arms for somewhere to stay for a wedding. We were initially attracted by the price and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation and the service we received. Great quality food also.

. An extremely well situated hotel, on the High Street and within spitting distance of the main sights of the pretty little town. It is an old coaching inn, full of charm, and must be very attractive to tourists, especially those from abroad. Haven't been here for a dozen years, but was pleasantly surprised by how they have made a... More

I stayed there on Friday 16th May 2014 for my birthday. It was fantastic. The dinner was gorgeous, the room was lovely and the breakfast was fantastic. We complimented the chef on the food as it was so nice. For £39 for the night (room) you couldn't fault it. The lady we had who looked after us was really friendly... More

What a breath of fresh air. Steve and Hannah have certainly made changes for the better. Although they have only been here a week the whole atmosphere has changed and I was made to feel very welcome. Steve produced some great food. I will stay here next time I'm in the area.
