“A glorious weekend.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

We celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary this past weekend at Dormy House. It lived up to all the wonderful reviews and then some. We booked through Mr and Mrs Smith and afternoon tea was included in our package which was both delicious and beautifully served. My husband had a double portion of scones!! Our only slight disappointment was that our room had a shower but no bath but the manager very kindly gave us a bottle of champagne with our dinner in the Potting Shed to compensate. The staff are superb - helpful and caring. Our bedroom - number 17 - was more like a Junior suite. They've thought of everything from supplying glossy magazines to a room spray which arrives at turndown. We will definitely return. Loved it , loved it, loved it!!

Stayed at The Dormy with friends recently. All I can say is, everything was exceptional. The rooms were amazing with comfortable beds, great showers and some fantastic little touches that made all the difference. Food and service were also exceptional, the hot chocolate is a must for chocoholics!
Beautiful lounges with warm fires were very welcome on a cold day.
It will be even better once the spa is finished, early next year I believe. After staying at some of the top hotels in the UK, I am confident in saying, The Dormy is going to leave many of them in its wake, can't wait to return.
Check out the remote controlled gadgets in the gents toilets! Inspirational!

Room Tip: All the rooms we saw were great but there is one called The Loft, I think, which will leave you spee...

I took my husband here as a surprise trip and I couldn't have been more pleased with my choice.

On arrival, it was clear we were going to have a very relaxing break and we felt more like guests at someone's home rather than hotel guests.

The communal areas are extremely comfortable, with lots of areas to feel cosy and not intruded upon (although there was always a member of staff to offer you a drink!). The toilets near reception are the nicest toilets I have EVER visited (including Harrods!) and made me feel very glamorous!

The bedroom we booked (intimate room) was gorgeous - and didn't feel intimate (small!) at all. There was obviously no expense spared with the furnishings and the en suite was to die for (I can see some DIY in our house soon!).

We ate dinner in the Potting Shed which was perfect and would recommend to anybody.

Breakfast was delicious - a range of pastries etc, followed by a high quality breakfast which went down a treat (only quibble is that I'd have liked beans on my breakfast - but it didn't spoil my weekend!).

Can't wait to visit again to test the spa once it's complete - if the rest of the hotel is anything to go by, then it will be spectacular...........

Right - when can we go back?

We recently stayed for a weekend and feel both the hotel and staff are worthy of compliment.

We were warmly welcomed upon arrival and well looked after during our short stay.The room was exceptional, it felt more a like a very well furnished studio flat with everything from bathrobes to an ipad at our disposal.
Even the rather inclement weather did not dampen our spirits and enjoyed a nice long walk through the Vale of Evesham down to very picturesque Broadway.

We enjoyed the cuisine in both The Garden Room & Potting Shed and The Full Dormy breakfast help set us up for the day.

If the chance presents itself, will gladly return.

My wife and I recently stay at Dormy House for our wedding anniversary.

Having stayed at many country house hotels such as Cowath Park, Pennyhill Park, The Grove and Chewton Glen expectations were high for Dormy House.

From the moment we arrived Dormy House exceeded expectations and provided an experience far ahead of the previous named hotels.

There were so many high points from the delightful doorman who came to help us from our car in the rain to the helpful and attentive staff.

The hotel managed to do something I've not experienced often which is provide a wonderful designed hotel, great staff and service yet as a guest you felt relaxed as like you belonged there. So many 5* country hotels I've stayed at still have a sense of stuffiness about then which Dormy certainly didn't.

The location is amazing high in the Cotswold hills. There are some amazing walks and the nearest town, Broadway, is a picture perfect village.

Rooms are fresh, light and beautifully appointed. We stayed in Rose Cottage which I would highly recommend.

Food wise we eat lunch in one of the three lounges, all with open fires, and dinner in the potting shed. All great quality and homely food in keeping with the setting.

We are already planning out next visit.

This was the second time we have stayed in this hotel and it gets better each time. We will be back again. The service is was simply amazing, second to none, the food was great one of the best deserts we have ever eaten and the hotel rooms stunning.

I can not recommend this place enough.
