We booked a night in this small (4 bedroom) country inn at short notice just for a quick break in the Cotswolds. We were in 'Earth Summit' , the superior room and it did not disappoint particularly for the rate we paid. The room was large, clean, warm and best of all comfortable.
Just before we were going down for our evening meal we had a visit to our room from a staff member informing us that a large winning party were due in from Newbury races and if we thought we may be disturbed we could be moved to an alternative hotel in Cheltenham totally at the cost of the management.
We opted to stay and are glad we did. The food (albeit a little more expensive than we would expect in a country pub) and particularly the service were first class. By way of a good will gesture we were also given a bottle of complimentary wine with our dinner.
Yes, the enthusiasm of the winning party was rather loud but in no way troublesome or rowdy, and actually added some atmosphere to the evening !
Would we return ? yes. Would we recommend to others ? yes. I regularly stay in big branded hotels throughout the UK (through no choice of my own), The Hollow Bottom is however somewhere I would stay through choice and the breakfast was great.
I have only marked down the room as there was no bath, an excellent shower, but I do like a soak !
Again I only marked the location down as it is a little bit isolated, meaning I had to drive a bit more than I had planned.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hollow Bottom is a beautiful, traditional 17th Century Inn. Recently refurbished to blend the rustic with the contemporary. We have 4 letting rooms, 3 above the bar area and 1 outside near the rear garden. The Hollow Bottom is a bustling, busy country pub and restaurant and therefore noise can be heard in all the bedrooms on occasions despite the heavy acoustic underlay. It is a great place to visit for a unique atmosphere in the most beautiful village in the world. Come and see for yourselves! ... more less
