We booked into a standard room and were pleasantly surprised by how nice it was, full of character with a view of the courtyard garden and most importantly a really comfortable bed. The bar area, library and dining room have all been finished to a high standard and show off the buildings historic features. Breakfast was one of the best... More

We made our reservation after reading other reviews online and looking at the hotel website. We were not disappointed. The hotel is steeped in history and located in a charming Cotswolds village.

From the moment we walked into the hotel it was obvious our stay was going to be good. We were welcomed by our hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The lunch and breakfasts were delicious with locally sourced ingredients. The 14th century building has been refurbished to a very high standard whilst retaining its character.

Great food and atmosphere, Surprisingly quiet considering how great the food was. The food was certainly aimed at foodies, not a normal Sunday lunch (which was perfect for us) 3 courses well priced at £20 ish Would certainly recommended to friends

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Packed with character and the food was absolutely excellent. The bedroom was large and very comfortable. Only slight thing would be that the bathroom could do with a working extractor fan. We would thoroughly recommend staying here!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
DELIGHTED TO ANOUNCE THE WINDRUSH & EVENLODE ROOMS ARE NOW FULLY REFURBISHED AND HAVE BEEN UPRATED TO STANDARD DOUBLES. The Shaven Crown Hotel, which is situated in the heart of the Cotswolds, re-opened September 2014 after extensive refurbishment. The Hotel is one of the oldest inns in England and oozes character and atmosphere as well as lashings of Cotswolds charm. You will usually find a roaring log fire to welcome you in the Grand Hall and can guarantee an equally warm welcome from the staff. We have a an excellent restaurant, serving the highest quality locally sourced produce, a bar, which is open all day, and seven beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms. Our basic room, The Crown Room, has new furnishings, however the en-suite and carpet are yet to be updated, we hope to do this in early 2017. We look forward to seeing you soon! ... more   less
