“Excellent Everytime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2011

We had previously enjoyed many meals at this hotel and every time it was of a high standard with a great atmosphere. We decided on this occasion to stay at the Hotel and booked a two night stay and we were not disappointed. We stayed in room 7 which was a spacious four poster room and very beautifully decorated. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable and we slept really well.
We ate in the restaurant on the Saturday night and my husband enjoyed the best steak you could ever find in the area and as I am vegetarian I enjoyed a superb pasta dish served with garlic bread and side salad.
The restaurant and bar were busy but the service was attentive and seamless. The staff all appear to enjoy looking after their customers and this shows in every area.
Andy and Julia work very hard to ensure this high standard is maintained and their team is a credit to them.
Cant wait to stay again.

The Cotswold Gateway offers the best sort of welcome in an English family run hotel. The service is superb and they Management cannot do enough for their guests. The food is very good especially the dinner menu in the comfortable bar. Only slight criticism is that some of the rooms are on the small side.

My family and I had a wonderful weekend at The Gateway Hotel. Eight of us had dinner on the Saturday and eleven of us had Sunday Lunch. From the moment we arrived we were treated superbly. All the staff were helpful, polite and thoroughly professional. The food was excellent, the service fantastic. All in all we were delighted to stay at the Gateway it made for a most memorable, wonderful stay.

Enjoyed a lovely relaxing weekend stay at the Cotswold Gateway. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The short walk down into Burford takes only a few minutes. However, its harder work going back uphill, as its quite a steep pull up. The staff were all pleasant and helpful, the atmosphere laid back and friendly. No complaints at all.

We were staying in Burford and needed somewhere to eat and we came accross this place which was within walking distance. We didnt stay here, only eat but it was so good on the first night, we decided to return on the second night during our stay in Burford. On the first evening we arrived quite early 6.30pm and we were greeted by 3 very friendly staff behind the bar who asked if we wanted a table for dinner. There is one large round table right in the window which they let us have and it was really comfortable. The menu is huge and normally it puts me off when the chef has too many continents to worry about! There was typical British pub grub, Thai, Indian, Italian.....the menu just went on and on. We initially thought the starters were slightly overpriced at between £6 - £8 each but when you see the size of them, then you realise why. Most mains ranged from £15 - £22 which sounds quite a lot but presentation, quality of the food and taste was very very good. None of the portions are small and the plates are gigantic!!! The food was hot, delicious and presented really well and there was absolutely nothing we could fault. The staff were superb, they smiled, they were friendly and continously took plenty of drinks orders from us and kept us hydrated with lots of wine! We had such a lovely evening, we book the same table for the next night and although the menu had changed very slightly we had another brilliant evening and possibly spent far too much again but it was worth it. I have no idea what the rooms were like but the restaurant was packed on both evenings which speaks volumes. If you are driving past its well worth a stop.
