“Lovely weekend break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Very comfortable. Delicious food, excellent chef. You need to have dinner there more than once as great choice, varied menu and all very good. Wines good too. It is evident how much personal investment, care and attention to detail the owners have put into this hotel.
Only slight problem was breakfast ends at 10am which can be a bit of pressure at weekend. However, well worth getting up for!

Room Tip: Only tried one room. Ours had twin mattresses rather than double mattress which was not a problem fo...

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary by dining at Number Four for the first time even though we live locally. Number Four and it's staff made out evening memorable from the time we arrived until the time we left. We were greeted as if we were long lost friends annd felt very much at home. The Staff were helpful, friendly and courteous. The Menu was varied and well thought out. The food was out of this world, a gastronomic experience to be sure ! Brian, the Chef, is indeed passionate about his cusine and this refected in the presentation and preparation of our meal. We shall be returning again -- SOON !!!

From the moment we entered the hotel we were made to feel that nothing was too much trouble. we booked a suite and it was a super room, very comfy bed and huge deep relaxing bath. We also booked our evening meal in the restaurant and the food was superb.

In the morning the breakfast was also more than we could have hoped and set us up perfectly for our day.

Many thanks to all the people that made my 1st wedding anniversary perfect for my very particular wife!

We stayed at Number Four on Saturday night to celebrate my husband's birthday. We had a lovely time; the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. Our room was spotless and the decor was very nice and restful. Our room (104) was on the ground floor and had a lovely view over the hills. The bathroom was small and functional but again spotlessly clean and had great towels. We could hear a little traffic noise but not enough to disturb us.

We ate dinner at their restaurant Cutlers and the food was fantastic. My husband and I are pretty hard to please with food (keen cooks and eaters) but were very impressed by the food at Cutlers. The food was beautifully cooked and presented and truly delicious. My John Dory with pan fried gnocci in an orange butter sauce was a particular highlight although all three courses were top notch, no complaints, even the bread was wonderful. One of the best meals we had had in a while. Breakfast was also delicious and cooked to order.

Number Four is a little way out of Stow and is on a busy road but is surprisingly good once you step inside and the quality of service is next to none. We hope to return and will recommend it to friends.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back - the view is great and you are a little further away from the road.

We had a wonderful stay at No.4@Stow! Our room was beautifully appointed and perfectly spotless. Our lasting impression will be the warm welcome, the professionalism of ALL the staff, and the fantastic dinner and breakfast. The dining room has a very relaxing atmosphere, with log burning stove and tranquil decor. We will most definitely be recommending this boutique hotel to our friends and family. Thank you for a memorable time.

Drove through the snow to this enchanted place, enjoyed an excellent dinner prepared with talent out of fresh local products.
All was perfect, extremely warm welcome and friendly staff.
Clear and nice room, with a very comfortable bed. Loved the place and will definitely be back soon!
