We spent a Sunday night at the Colesbourne Inn on our way back from seeing family. Drawing up outside the Inn our reaction was positive. Very Cotswold in appearance, a typical English country Inn, an old rough stone building, everything we hoped for and more.
Parking is easy, either at the front or around the back. It is on a main road but the traffic noise wasn't intrusive when we stayed but it was a Sunday so I can't speak for a week day. Entering the Inn and our spirits lifted. A roaring log fire, comfy sofas and arm chairs, a good bar, what appeared to be a comprehensive menu, helpful staff, things were definitely on the up.
Our room was number 4. It faced the road as does every room. First impressions, very good. Very well decorated, co-ordinated soft furnishings, well furnished, tv, well equipped hostess tray (not just the two small cartons of milk), easy chair, plenty of storage, quality fittings, a very pleasant room. The bathroom was spotlessly clean, white fittings, shower over the bath, plenty of storage space, electric towel rail, good quality towels, complimentary toiletries.
After a shower we walked back to the bar and enjoyed a couple of glasses of red wine seated in front of a roaring fire, wonderful. As we had eaten lunch time we were only looking for a snack. Two smoked salmon sandwiches served with a complimentary portion of chips was more than adequate. Several hours later we went back to our room.
Breakfast was included in our rate. Very good with a buffet of cold items including yogurts, fruit juices, cereals etc our cooked order was taken immediately as was our choice of hot drink and toast. Service was exceptional and attentive. It is obvious the staff at the Colesbourne are keen to ensure their guests have a comfortable stay.
Our only negative would be the quality of the bed which wasn't great it let down a superb room.
The Inn is very well placed for Cheltenham, Cirencester and the Cotswolds. Would we stay again, without hesitation.
