We had a lovely weekend at Cotswold. Our room was large and couldn't be faulted for maintenance or cleanliness. Our bathroom had a large shower and spa bath. Heaters and blankets ensured we weren't cold. Little extras like complimentary chocolates and darker towels for ladies with make-up were really appreciated. Breakfast was delicious. Both of us liked our first breakfast... More

We stayed for two nights in Cotswold on our roadtrip in New Zealand. The room was nice and clean, with a beautyful view. Our hosts was very friendly and they were two alive guidebooks for the aria. They even let us borrow shovels, when we went to Hot Water Beach. So, don´t hesitate, if you are having a stop in... More

We booked here last minute after a long day of driving on winding roads, feeling weary and just needing a decent night's rest.
