After reading some of the reviews I thought 'Oh dear, what have I booked'. Had a special offer deal at £79.90 per std double room DBB + free bottle champagne per first night. Arrived at the hotel, and thought the quiet country setting was just what I wanted. The receptionist who booked us in was efficient and gave us instructions to our room. Our room was OK, it was of good size, the decor was dated but bed linen and towels were clean. The radiator was on, so the room was nice and warm ready for our arrival. Tea and coffee facilities with biscuits free of charge. Bottled mineral water free of charge. Foxes mints free of charge.Trouser press, iron and board, hairdryer, TV and DVD in room. DVD's were chargable. Our bathroom yet again dated but clean, basic toiletries for our use. Our inclusive evening meal was good - menu was restricted but changed for the following night. There were 4 of us and all plates were clean. The waiting staff were attentative. Breakfast was also good - no complaints.
This is a 3 star hotel - dont expect 4* at these prices. They are trying to get things right and doing their best to provide little extras such as fresh fruit at reception, hand cream and mineral water in the washrooms. All the staff were courtious all the time. If you are looking for a small country hotel for a quiet getaway try this hotel. We were not disappointed. Their new manager Mr Ian Spanswick is doing a great job!
- 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
