“Lovely comfortable relaxing hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Just back from a one night stay at this hotel via a travel zoo offer. Had great ease of booking and several emails before from reception to check for reservation time of evening dinner. On arrival at the car park you know you have booked somewhere rather lovely and relaxing. Gardens, big car park with loads of space and huge big windows overlooking the view. Public spaces took the form of cosy bar area with lovely big open fire, a big bright casual sitting room and beautifully laid restaurant with starched table coths and napkins. The food was excellent although I would say not a huge choice, about 5 choices for each course but even for me as a fussy eater I was happy. Portions for main course may disappoint the large eater (I was expecting a dish of vegetables) but the quality makes up for it. You can also have food in the bar but I didn't look at the menu as had dinner included. Breakfast was cooked to order and arrived piping hot, again giving you that feeling of real luxury.
Bedroom great size plenty of space, large windows overlooking the view, tea and coffee facilities even biscuits! A very lovely night away and came home feeling very relaxed. A special mention has to go to the guy in the bar and the waitress in the restaurnant so friendly and warm yet so professional.

This is an excellent place to stay. The staff are particularly welcoming, the location excellent, and the restaurant and bar are fantastic! I'd recommend staying in this hotel if you want to experience Kingham. The view out of the window in my room was especially beautiful. I was really pleased with this hotel.

We stayed here a couple of nights in late January. Bad weather, thick snow, but that didn't spoil our enjoyment of the hotel and walking in the surrounding countryside. Staff really helpful and friendly. Food was very good and the service excellent: as well as breakfast we had dinner in the hotel both nights. Cream tea on arrival, lovely scones. Lovely log fire in the bar area. Some refurbishment/building work in progress but no impact on our stay.

Many thanks for taking the time to write such a lovely review of the Mill House. I'm so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that the building works were not disturbing for you. This is very nice to hear as these have always been our intentions to have little disruption to guests. The work is actually almost finished so I do hope you will come back to see our new bar area.

We had an excellent weekend break at the Mill via Travel Zoo. Accommodation was relaxing and cosy, for me the real fire was definitely a bonus. Staff couldn't do enough for you. Food excellent. Atmosphere was wonderful. What more can I say.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the first floor to avoid noise of people in rooms above.

This was our first visit to the Mill House and we were not disappointed. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel welcome, we enjoyed a scrumptious cream tea with champagne. Our room was spacious and delightful. We ate both evenings in the restaurant and our meals were superb. Its an excellent location for all the main areas around Stow. The staff in the restaurant were fun and friendly and always with a helpful attitude. We'll be happy to return for another visit.

My husband and I stayed here on January 3rd 2013,along with my cousin and her husband. From the moment I booked this hotel on a Travelzoo deal to the moment we left, we were not disappointed. On arrival we were welcomed by a lovely pleasant young lady who directed us to our rooms ( Superior Rooms - 21 and 22). Our rooms were lovely and spacious with a large bathroom. The bathroom was clean and had a towel rail and radiator. The current new owners are in the process of updating the premises and looking at what they have done so far, this place will be amazing. We had a drink at the bar before dinner and enjoyed the open fire. All the staff and current owners are so pleasant and helpful. We ordered a bottle of Prosecco but since they ran out, the manager offered us a bottle of champagne at a discounted rate - naturally we were very delightedl. Dinner was a three course alcarte menu which was excellent. In the morning we had a great breakfast too. This is a hotel which is full of character and a lot of potential. We will return!

We stayed at The Mill House Hotel between Christmas and New Year on a "Twix" break. This was our 6th visit to the Hotel and we found that the food was as good as ever (excellent!) The new owners, Mr & Mrs Drinkwater and their family were friendly and welcoming. They have improved the Hotel with the addition of the "personal touch" and we look forward to returning to this "find".
Do not be put off by other negative reviews. Highly recommended for food, accommodation, welcoming staff - in an excellent location. Well done!
