“Quiet location in the South Cotswolds, with Malmesbury and Tetbury nearby. Beautifully appointed rooms and bathroom. Cleanliness excellent. Comfy bed, good cooked breakfast. Excellent ales in the bar and very friendly and professional staff. Would you want anything more? I liked the quiet bar, with no music in the evening or at breakfast, perfect.

Everything we aspire to be and given extra weight by great guests who we really enjoyed hosting. We always try to emphasise the peace and quiet of our location for those looking to get away from it all. We could not have asked for higher praise from better guests. Thank you from the whole Horse Guards team.

We spent three nights at the horse guards in October in the blue room. It's very spacious and has everything you need. It's conveniently located from the pub with a separate entrance.

Loved the location - it feels like it's in the middle of nowhere because I suppose it is. But around five minutes in the car gets you to Malmesbury if you're after a town. Great rooms. They feel spacious and modern but still have a lot of character. Especially the one we stayed in (with the nice wooden beams). Decent...

Sums up our location perfectly, guaranteed peace and quiet but all the south Cotswolds has to offer on your doorstep. In addition to receive such positive feedback about their actual stay with us (Notwithstanding the lack of high chairs for which we have absolutely no storage space) is real icing on the cake. Thank you from a very appreciative Horse...

It was our pleasure hosting these guests and I am sure that had we seen more of them we would have enjoyed their company more.
