The hotel itself is amazing, quirky and has a real old world charm, the room had lovely old windows and four poster bed with some lovely finishing touches plus it was very quiet even though it was above the bistro and the first room at the top of the stairs. The staff were all friendly and helpful but..... I booked... More

My Fiancée and I stayed for two nights at Cardynham House between the 27th - 29th November. We arrived late on the Friday evening but were able to check in as planned despite the check in advice stating 10pm. We got a cab ride from Gloucester Station which cost £20 - its nearer to get off the train at Stroud... More

We stayed 2 nights at Cardynham House this week, lovely atmosphere, delightful room with 4 poster bed. The staff extremely helpful, good breakfast each morning. Evening meal taken in the pub next door as the bistro is closed on a Monday. Painswick is a delightful place to stay. We would certainly stay at Cardynham House again.

We stayed at this hotel for one night and found it to be absolutely charming. The room was lovely just as the website showed. We had dinner in the onsite Bistro which was lovely and the staff were great. We had a wonderful nights sleep and looked forward to breakfast. What a disappointment. The breakfast was undercooked and very greasy.... More

Visited Cardynham House for a weekend break with my husband. We booked using a 'Unique places to stay' voucher. We booked a couple of months ahead and had no trouble booking. It was a simple process and the person who answered the phone (the owner) was really helpful. We had room 2, which was the Palm Beach room. Lovely cream... More

I stayed for two nights on a business trip. The owner was helpful and friendly over the phone. My room was well furnished and very homely! The village of Painswick provides a stunning location and makes a business trip feel very homely. The only pain is the wifi doesn't reach the bedrooms and there is no 3G coverage. It's also... More

After reading conflicting views on trip advisor about voucher customers I must say what a very warm welcome we received. Very impressed with our room it was warm,clean and inviting. Not a lot to do in Painswick apart from admire the local architecture and enjoy some refreshments in the RoyalOak which is located right next door, Perfect! If your thinking... More

We booked here when the Falcon Inn failed to respond to an email and were glad we did. Cardynham House is on a quiet corner in the most picturesque part of the village with a bistro on the ground floor and 11 bedrooms on the first and second floors. All the rooms are individually designed and full of character -... More

My husband and I stayed here. Painswick is a nice quiet Cotswolds village with narrow streets so parking can be a challenge. We parked near the b & b but had to move the car at 9 the following day. The room was quirky, cosy, warm and a decent size. You could hear noise from outside (next door pub?) and... More
