We approached Bibury across country and were almost run off the road by an enormous lorry as we drove down a delightful county lane. I would advise arriving via Cirencester. Feeling a bit cross and hot under the collar when we reached the hotel any anti feelings were soon disipated by the warmth of the welcome and the lovely setting in which the hotel sits. We stayed in "Dragonfly", one of the larger rooms with a four poster bed - super room but the bathroom was something really special. A jackuzzi bath big enough for two, a proper shower in its own cubicle and two handbasins that were big enough to bath the kids!
The staff are helpful, efficient and friendly (also understanding when yours truly enjoyed a little more champagne than was sensible for an old geezer). The food is outstanding and, for the quality, very reasonably priced - 3 courses for £32.50 with a discount if you book in advance on the net.
Bibury itself is beautiful and this hotel is recommended for a romantic break. We intend to return before the weather turns in the autumn.
