I was originally getting married at Cotswold 88 (pre the painswick) they shut down n messed us about. Then the company that run the (now) painswick took over and gave us the most wonderful, personal service. We got married at their sister hotel in the end but had such a fantastic experience that we now regularly go to the painswick....

We love the Calcott Manor group of hotels so we're keen to try this one. We certainly weren't disappointed. In fact I'd go so far as to say this was one of the best weekends away in a long time. The staff were fantastic - nothing was too much, the food wonderful and the hotel itself gorgeous. The only teeny...

What a fantastic hotel! Warm, welcoming and with great staff who managed to be all of professional, responsive and attentive - delivered with a real sense of humour, enthusiasm and all-round good hosting. We stayed for a weekend but felt so rested and looked after it was like we'd been there for a week. Front of house (F) looked after...

Sunday lunch was very expensive although very tasty! Cocktails £13, wine by the glass the same as many places. Service was friendly and good atmosphere, very comfortable and warm. Wine by the bottle seemed expensive!

We took advantage of a special midweek "George's Hygge" promotional offer to have a night B&B at The Painswick, a first visit, albeit have been to sister properties in the Cotswolds. What a great experience. The room we had was on the second floor, double aspect corner room (Hawkers) - spacious, comfortable (great bed) well appointed in contemporary muted tones,...

I was only at The Painswick for one night but it was an absolute dream. The hotel is beautiful and my room was beyond comfortable. The staff was incredibly accommodating, the food delicious, and the scenery unbeatable. I enjoyed my time exploring gorgeous Painswick and the hiking trails then retreating to my oasis at The Painswick. I had such a...

This is a really gorgeous hotel in a great location and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We paid for a "Big" room (which was actually quite small but very beautiful) because we wanted a separate shower but much to our frustration we were unable to get hot water for the entire weekend. Each time we mentioned this to reception or...

We popped in for drinks at The Painswick whilst waiting to check in to a nearby hotel and I loved the place immediately. Fantastic, friendly staff who were very helpful and attentive. Beautifully decorated bar and lounge, with a roaring fire and gorgeous little touches such as the prints by a local artist over the fireplace and in the lobby....

We visited for lunch on December 23rd but there was little festive on the menu, Much of the food was served cold and I would expect a soup. My pate came several minutes after the others. I would hesitate to return

We had a two night break before Christmas and we loved the hotel; my wife felt it was the best UK contemporary boutique hotel she has stayed in. We would certainly recommend letting the train take the strain; Stroud is the nearest station and the hotel will pick you up in their silent electric car and you don't need a...
