I booked this for two nights reading that it was convenient for exploring the Cotswolds but in fact it's a long drive to the triangle from Stow to Broadway or Chipping Campden and coming back to the hotel you get caught in bad traffic in the afternoon between 4.30 and 5.30. It all looks close on a map, but you are on cute little winding back roads all the way. Part of the charm I suppose!
Next thing, the bed was the most comfortable I have had travelling around the UK for the past 2 weeks, and king size not these little English queen beds which I would call a double and the breakfast is excellent. But beware of the dinner in the bar. We didn't want the 3 course set dinner in the dining room having already had a big lunch and had already been to the pub in the next village, Painwick, for dinner the previous night. So we opted for dinner in the bar. The beef burger was served with a couple of slices of tomato but not even a lettuce leaf, just lots of chips. The sausages and mashed potatoes were just that. It wasn't expensive, but not cheap either.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- ‘Contemporary country house with the Cotswolds warmest welcome’ Set high on an escarpment overlooking the Severn Vale this 45 bedroom country house hotel lies between the Cathedral City of Gloucester and Regency Cheltenham. Hatton Court provides the right balance between traditional hotel service and all the benefits you would expect from a contemporary hotel. The Tara Restaurant is renowned locally. It is an ideal place from which to explore the Cotswolds. Hatton Court is a reassuring size; not large and impersonal, nor too small. As a former splendid Cotswold home the feeling is of being eminently comfortable as opposed to grand. Nothing is hurried. The reception is very much a lounge, with leather sofas, magazines and an open fireplace for those chillier days. Next door the bar is more a place to relax, take tea, read and talk than to rush. The care taken to prepare the food, combined with a smiling service, is complemented by the thought that has gone into creating the Tara Restaurant. Fully refurbished in late 2009 the natural colours and soft lighting make a relaxing environment for friends and relations to enjoy each other’s company. Private dining facilities are available in the equally well appointed Cotswold Room. The peace of the surrounding countryside and comfortable bedrooms, some with whirlpool baths, make for a good night’s sleep ready for another day exploring the Cotswolds. ... more less
