4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Located immediately opposite the famous churchyard in the centre of Painswick this inn is more of a restaurant than a pub or hotel. Space in this large old Cotswold stone building has been well laid out to provide a number of different dining areas and has a 18th/19th century style with a modern twist. There is a sensible menu that... More

We met our son and daughter in law here for lunch as a catch up. Situated in a real lovely village a few miles out of Stroud, we sat outside and had a drink because we were early, nicey but pricey. Two drinks cost £9 odd. They are dog friendly which is why we booked. We put ours in his... More

We visited the Falcon Hotel or Inn recently and we were very disappointed with the overall condition of the hotel and the quality of the food . The rooms are in need of major upgrading as they are old and the furniture is shabby and the TV is so small it is difficult to see properly and our bathroom was... More

Dear Sean T Many thanks for spending the time reviewing The Falcon, we have a rolling program of refurbishment where we do 2-3 rooms and bathrooms per year, which we continue to do, I don't know if you mentioned this to staff at the time of your stay, we may have been able to move you to another room.

We were travelling as a part of a group. At first glance our room looked fine - spacious and with a beautiful view. Bed was nicely made and very good. But that's just about it. When we went into the bathroom there were used cotton pads lying on the floor - probably used for eye makeup - and there were... More

I was so looking forward to coming to this place, but unfortunately I left disappointed. The food was much more average than what I was expecting. It was also expensive considering what they produced in front of us. Also, when my partner asked for an espresso, the waitress said they didn't have a coffee machine and only had cafetières. This...

Dear Injeta Many thanks for taking the time to review The Falcon, sorry you were disappointed and that we didn't meet your expectations, there are measures in place to improve the quality of food served. With regards to coffee, we offer a very good product from a local supplier in Cafetieres, the main reason is personally I find that establishments... More

People wanting to stay at the Falcon Inn should book online and not by phone. Unfortunately three of our four room party could not stay because the Inn had lost the bookings which were made over the phone. The only booking honoured was that made online. The only place that the Inn was able to offer having lost our bookings... More

This is a beautiful hotel right across the street from the church in lovely Painswick. Our meals were delicious, the service was great, and I loved the gin menu! We liked our dinner so much we came back for breakfast the next day. The lovely hostess/manager (?) made it a most pleasant experience, and I would definitely go back.

The Falcon Inn is historic and with that comes the quirkiness of uneven floors, no lift but lots of character. There is a friendly welcome & they even found us a table on a busy Saturday; so glad as the food was very good. There is parking at the rear, our room was in the eaves (no 4), it had... More

Our English friends had booked 2 rooms at the Falcon 13 months before we were due to visit and received confirmation of this. However, 6 weeks beforehand a call was made to confirm our arrival only to be told by the proprietor that he had subsequently booked a wedding party and so had 'bumped' us. He informed our enquirer that... More

Having asked for more information to clarify the situation further, the guest was non committal, however they did mention that the enquire was made by a 3rd party agent, I would suggest that maybe the agent was unable to make a reservation due to a wedding taking place, and therefore blamed the hotel for the error. I have checked our... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Falcon Inn sits opposite a quintessential English village church with its famous 99 clipped yew trees sitting in its grounds. The Falcon was first opened as a coaching inn in the 16th century and carries out the aims of the coaching inn to this day, the transport to it is just a little bit different. Great food, service and hospitality are provided at value for money prices. Painswick is not to be missed and the Falcon is the place to stay. ... more   less
