We stayed on Friday 27th July, a family of 4, (twin boys aged 12), in a family room overlooking the garden. We would definitely stay again. We found the hotel at the last min via Expedia (who take their cut) so would book direct in future. Firstly, the photo doesn't do it justice, it's set further back than it looks, in this beautiful Cotswold village, its a quiet hotel, with much going for it. The new owner had only bought it a few hours before we arrived! He was a very welcoming Welshman, who couldn't do enough, or be more welcoming. Bar and restaurant staff efficient and professional. The hotel has a lovely atmosphere, and many old charm features. We had an evening meal in the bar area, which was v good, and a large screen on which to watch the opening of the Olympics ceremony. Our room was large and clean, with long balcony walkway outside overlooking the garden. Our breakfast was prompt and well cooked, we lacked for nothing, and sat overlooking the front garden (much longer than the photo indicates). We all slept well. The hotel is very well situated for visiting Lacock, which we did, and then later Stonehenge. We found the route through Wiltshire, to our Devon holiday, v good and quick, avoiding the motorway route Bristol, Exeter. The hotel is a little tired in places, but nothing that cannot be fixed easily, with a little TLC by the experienced the new owner. We wish him well, and would stay again!
