Due to cancelled flights we thought we'd spent a few nights away in the Cotswold, Stow being one of our favourite place. Now due to new virus events were changing very rapidly. We stayed in room 6 then returned the following night re booked and stayed in room 10. Both rooms were spotless and with decor that you'd expect from this beautiful hotel. (6 being the larger room) The manager that evening was Polish and to be quite honest couldn't do enough for us. An excellent member of the hotel team. With staff like this we'll defiantly return later in the season.
Not sure about the claim of the oldest Inn as in Nottingham we have The Trip to Jerusalem! We stayed just for the Friday night on our way back from Devon, it isn’t easy to have one night at the weekend but we were fortunate when we booked months ago. Room 11 standard double I would have said cosy double! It’s dog friendly but we didn’t have the dog with us, however no smell of dogs at all! Bed really comfortable and loved the feather duvet. Shower room spotless no complaints! Bar really busy, staff extremely helpful the only downside maybe the lack of choice on the menu, but my husband enjoyed Lamb and the chicken Kiev I had was very tasty. Breakfast excellent we will return!
We came here on a Saturday for one night and stayed in room eight which was stunning! So we'll finished with all the little details that makes the difference. The room was spotless and clean. The bathroom was beautiful, great big rainfall shower, huge freestanding bath, both were so luxurious and delightful. The bed was very comfy minus feather pillows which we just can't get on with. But personal preference. The room was very warm so we had to have the fan on as the window didn't open. The hotel has WiFi but it's pretty poor, it throws you out every hour and as a guest that's not great, I think separate WiFi for guests would be better. Parking is tricky! We managed to get a space out on one of the side roads as they have 3 allocated at the back and out the front but are always taken so just be aware you will have a walk to the pub/hotel. Check-in could do with being clearer, we arrived told to sit in the bar and wait and we were three and saw people keep getting checked in before us and there is one gentleman doing check ins which seems so silly and so unclear what to do or where to wait, bit frustrating. But room, location and Vibe was great.…
I did not eat or stay here, but am leaving a review of the staff. I tried to get Sunday lunch which was fully booked, no problem. However, the way the restaurant staff dealt with us was rude, unpolite and unhelpful. You should care as much about potential customers as actual customers.
We tried most of the pubs in Stow on the Wold and this was the best. What a lovely atmosphere in the oldest pub in the country. Great decor and lots of books and crannies and side rooms. A good choice of beer and friendly staff so I would recommend a visit.
