Glasgow, United Kingdom
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Rooms are nicely decorated, spacious and well furnished. Comfy king size bed, excellent shower and large screen TVs. Restaurand food is good for both dinner and breakfast and the staff are friendly and efficient. On a down side whilst this hotel offers parking it is a reasonable distance if you walk to / from the city centre.

Location of this hotel is great, 30 minute walk into the city, 20 minute drive from the Gondola. It has good parking. Rooms are large, but basic, with little finesse, but mainly clean and tidy ( apart from the huge spiders web above the window). Design of the hotel is "tudor" based, which includes "cobbled"paths, which are very noisy when...

Worst hotel in our stay in New Zealand. Very tired room and restaurant was basic. Staff did not appear interested in issues pointed out in room. Noisy coach arrived for separate party at 6.15 a.m. in morning and parked straight outside our room!

This hotel has an old building and furniture style , no slippers provided , still using the old door key too. Some corner rooms position might be a bit spooky as too dark in the night. Also smell molds when entering the unit for first time

Dear AChen88, Thank you for your recent stay at the Heartland Cotswold Hotel and for taking the time to review this. Whilst our hotel is an older 'Tudor' style building, we are different than your average hotel that is high rise, with old world charm that appeals to a majority of our hotel guests but equally not so. We understand...

I have to agree with a few other reviewers that the room smelled moldy. The room also smelt of cigarette smoke and I found a cigarette butt at the base of the couch. The bath/shower was a bit of a death trap. If you don't put the anti-slip mat in the bath tub before taking a shower you're going to...

This motel had quaint decor, excellent room service (food was exceptional) but the beds left a lot to be desired. The Queen bed was extremely uncomfortable with no support. The pillows were like lying on tissue paper. Our backs were sore for a couple of days. A shame seeing as everything else was quite good - including the massive bathroom.

Cotswold is quiet. Big rooms with all facilities you want. Nice view. Buildings are little German style. Close to the airport. Professional staff. No elevator to second floor. Enough free parking places.

Sparse and old decor in dire need of an entire estate gutting to rebuild from the ground up. Felt unsafe as a solo female. Something out of a 1950s time warp. Those with mold and mildew allergies should steer clear.
