Needed a break and it was the wife's birthday, saw this deal in the Daily Telegraph, and it was a good find. The hotel is in the middle of Tetbury, and to get to the car park it from the rear and when you arrive the view of the gardens and the hotel is stunning, reception it simple desk in... More

When making telephone booking we asked for a room with a walk in shower for which we agreed to pay an extra £20. It was not mentioned that the room was up several flights of stairs, way beyond my husband's capabilities. We were moved to a standard room up just a few stairs which was absolutely charming. The staff were... More

The Close Hotel is rather quirky with its rambling structure and different levels so be prepared to negotiate various sets of stairs. The restaurant is rather like a gentleman's club with period furniture and art showing various country pursuits adorning the walls. The garden is in a peaceful setting and offers a number of tables but there are not enough... More

I had the very real pleasure of visiting The Close for a second time yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My friend and I were charmed by the gentle elegance of the garden and lounge area. Service was swift and uncomplicated. I can't wait to go again.

Stayed here with my husband for 3 nights to include a tour of Highgrove. Wonderful! The service, the breakfast, the surroundings, the room, the cleanliness and the delicious food are of very high standard. We stayed in the Tudor room (2 flights of stairs up but worth it), which is beautifully decorated and overlooks the pretty garden area, which again... More

We stayed for one night and were very pleasantly surprised with the standard of accommodation and excellent cuisine. We stayed in an excellent room - Nightingale. I would recommend the hotel- the staff were professional and very helpful. We will return!

We spent three nights here from the 2nd August and were amazed from the off at how welcoming everyone at The Close was. We stayed in the Spire room which was one of their "Good" rooms.

After having stayed at this hotel several times previously, I failed to secure accommodation here for the date required; however, knowing how good the cuisine had been previously, I booked for dinner. The food was as exceptional as previously, a varied and extensive menu was complimented by friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and attentive staff whom made the whole experience extremely enjoyable....

Stayed at the Close Hotel whilst visiting the area to do a cycling sportive in nearby Didmarton. From arriving, after a unusually pain free journey on the M4 from London, our first impressions were very good. Tetbury is a lovely historic market down with the hotel in a very good central location. Being able to park in their car park... More
