“We love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2006

My husband and I travel up to the Cotswolds on a regular basis to see several friends who live in the area. We probably come up 6 times a year. Over the last 2 years, we have stayed in over 7 different hotels but now choose to stay only at the Rectory. We feel like it is a second home. The staff know us by name, our daughter acts like she owns the place (!) It is small enough to feel homely but big enough that you get the benefits of a hotel - swimming pool (which is heated and I have to say not many outdoor pools are nowadays), fantastic food which is all organic and freshly prepared. When others do stay without wanting to sound snobby it does attract nice clientele. The rooms are excellent value compared to many Cotswolds hotels and in my book you get more here for your money than anywhere else. We can afford more expensive hotels but have just got fed up with getting ripped and coming from London we have pretty high standards and this place seems to get the balance right. We've stayed there 4 times now and every time it gets better as the hotel manager seems to be doing ongoing refubishments and upgrading. I would strongly recommend this place - but not too much as we don't want to miss out on a room!

On arriving at the Rectory for a surprise birthday celebration, we encountered our first problems. Being greeted by the general manager, we were told that there was a problem with our room and we were to be downgraded. Without taking our bags up we decided to check the room. having climbed up three flights of stairs we were shown to the attic room which was far from anything like the rooms shown in the brochure and which was booked. we know the weather can not be helped but the room was so hot and we had our dog with us and there was know way he could have stayed there. There was no shower in the room just a bath with telephone handle shower. We could not stand in the bath because of the ceiling. On returning to reception we asked for a room change. We were offered a further down grade to a much smaller room. after discussion with my partner we decided this was not what we ordered and decided to leave. we collected our dead flowers that had been sent by friends and left in the heat of the room and we left. we were offered a cheap bottle of champagne which we declined. it is such a shame that the day was ruined. even more so when we were then told that someone had booked our room and four others, so were more lucrative than our business. We could have been told this by phone and saved us a journey
