Got this as a KGB deals (who will be getting a complaint from me) and it is just as bad as they say. Yes the hotel is very old and the rooms are very tired and in need of redecorating but the main issue is cleanliness, its all very dirty especially the bathrooms that actually really could do with ripping...

We checked into room 13 for 1 night with our 2 large dogs as we wanted to extend our short break in the Cotswolds and there was no availability where we had been staying. The owner was very casual and laid back when we arrived but the large room was definitely clean and the bed linen and towels were crisp... More

We recently enjoyed a night at this hotel, wonderful entrance lobby but I do agree, the place did lack atmosphere. On arrival the gentleman who gave us our key seemed somewhat glum, equally so at breakfast time too. I note there was a stereo in situ in the breakfast room.......this could've done with being tuned into a radio station, as... More

Spent an absolutely brilliant weekend at the Shaven Crown for my 30th birthday over Easter weekend. Phil couldn’t have been more accommodating and for £45 a night for dinner, bed and breakfast it was an absolute steal. We booked up all the rooms so had the run of the place – would thoroughly recommend this place for a New Years... More

Yes, there are parts of the building that are in some need of a little TLC but for the money this place is fantastic. The building is a trip back in time, the entrance lobby room feels like you are on the set of a medieval film and the staff are absolutely fantastic. We had the run of the place... More

Room 8 - avoid at all costs. Dirty walls, black grouting all over the shower, stained bed sheets. It is the coldest room possible due to it being over a walkway. It is such a shame, the hotel could be so much better due to its age and history, but it fails at so many levels, To get any service... More

This is an amazing old building with a great deal of atmosphere. Many of the comments made by others are true - the rooms do need to be cleaned more thoroughly, it is difficult to find any staff to attend to you and there is a bit of a 'take us as you find us' attitude (although they were not...
