“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

We stayed twice in the spring last year and thought that the Methuen Arms hit perfection for a weekend stay. Lovely fresh bedrooms decorated in a simple country style and excellent modern bathrooms. Clearly the hotel has recently been refurbished so I hope that the owners can maintain the quality of the finishes. Both dinner and breakfast were excellent but as others have mentioned the service was a little erratic when busy. The front bar is clearly a hit, with a good election of interesting Gin but its a shame that not all the beers shown were on. The staff were all very pleasant and the manager (Felix) did a particularly good job. Only thing I am a bit surprised by is that the owners, who were around, didn't interact with guests a bit more; but maybe that's why they have Felix?

We stayed 1 night in a luxury room for a birthday celebration. The hotel has a lovely feel - all the staff are very warm and welcoming. The food was delicious - lunch, evening and breakfast. Our room had a lovely, large bed and the bathroom was huge with a roll top bath and a powerful shower. I would happily recommend the Methuen Arms to anyone for a meal, an overnight stay or a mini-break.

We use this establishment for business and private functions. Ongoing restoration to a high standard. Restaurant, food and service has always been excellent. Atmosphere in bars and restaurant has a good ambiance. Our overseas visitors request to stay here in favour of other local hotels.

Our second visit - just as good as the first. This time we went with friends so we really wanted it to live up to how we remembered it, but there was no need to worry, if anything it was better. Rooms still lovely crisp and clean, food still excellent and plentiful. Service probably better - nothing really wrong previously, it just seemed slicker this time. Would still recommend!

If you should wish to be holed up in a cozy little cottage-like inn while traveling in the Cotswalds and exploring the region around Bath I can't think of a better place to be than this little hotel. While not all the rooms are as nice as mine (see photos) those that I've seen are all beautifully appointed, and my business associate, who has stayed here many times before, assures me all are nice. My room, number 7, with its irregular walls and ceiling, exposed beams, oversized fireplace and red terra cotta colored walls with white ceiling was a virtual painting come to life. Well appointed with lovely furniture and a excellent amenities, I couldn't have asked for much more. Bed linens as luxuriant a cotton as I've ever slept on. (Wish I could take some home!)

Meanwhile, the staff too, at the front desk, in the restaurant--itself worthy of a separate five star review--and at the bar, were all first rate. Poised, attentive without being intrusive, and pleasant to talk to, all were a pleasure to deal with.

I don't know where in the UK I've had a better experience. Well worth a visit!

I use this hotel regularly and especially when I have business clients to impress. These guys always go the extra mile for me and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms, people and food is all top class and I will always put my guests up here. It is a great place to stay
