Be warned - although the website states that breakfast must be purchased directly, we opted not to have breakfast as we had early starts each morning. However, we were made to pay for breakfast for both days - £40. To pay for something we did not have, nor were we advised at check-in that we would be charged regardless, completely... More

It is a nice, quaint bed and breakfast. To be fair, it is what you would expect from an old style house, and certainly has plenty charm. Breakfast was very tasty. Staff are a bit eccentric but nice. Overall a positive experience. There is no parking.

Firstly, it might just be our room that has led me to leave this review - it seems other people have enjoyed their stay in different rooms, but I can only base this on our experience. Painswick / Stroud / Minchinhampton is an area we know well and have visited often, staying in a number of B&Bs in the area... More

Painswick is a lovely little town and this hotel is very well located right in the centre, although parking is tricky i the narrow streets as there is no car park. We had a perfectly decent night's sleep - and probably would have been very happy in any other room, but we were not happy in room 8, Arabian Nights.... More

We booked the pool room - with the premium it commands - to have a private and comfortable place for a weekend overnight stay. The pool is not directly accessible from the room but via an outside path. That was not too much trouble, but for the price we paid we didn't quite expect to have to roll off the... More

We stayed in the Highlands Room for three nights this month. We found the room dark, dreary and stuffy with one window that barely opened. I saw the owner briefly (two minutes!) during our stay and mentioned our impression of the room. His comment was something like, "That's the way rooms were centuries ago". Maybe so, but dark carpet and... More

This B&B is run by a New Zealander who is quite welcoming and talkative. The building dates from the 1400's. We stayed in the old Tuscan room while friends stayed in the Palm Beach room. Each room is themed. Great shower, comfy 4 poster bed. Watch your head on the way in. Rooms are upstairs on two to three levels.... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at this BB we would not call it a hotel as there are very few facilities. The house is very small a tiny reception area that you have to drop down two high steps a lounge just settee and chairs no TV. Or bar. We stayed in the old Tuscany room.... More

We decided to experience the UK through a road trip which meant a new hotel or B&B each evening. The Cardynham House was easily our favorite of the variety of places we stayed. Since we were traveling with our two nieces, we opted for the Dovecote Room which had a four-poster double bed and two singles. The room was spacious... More

We managed to get a room for our family of four. It was a real treat. The room was huge with 3 beds. Very clean and updated in a 500 year building--plus our third story views gave us a good overview of the city center. A great value and a fun experience. The included breakfast was tasty.
