Chestnuts Bed and Breakfast
Reviewed June 23, 2013

This is the third time I have stayed at Chestnuts and each time I have been more than happy with the whole experience. Both Janet & Bob are freindly and offer an exelent service, nothing is too much trouble. Great breakfast and a choice. This visit I took my Pearents brothers an partners and they too had a really enjoyable stay. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Some rooms are smaller than others but are still comfortable and clean. It depends what you expect...

A quirky 300 year old property so don't expect luxury accommodation. We found it to be be beautifully located, well hosted, clean but basic yet adequate, although the room was quite a squeeze. However, it did represent value for money.

We were made very welcome in this 300 year old B&B. Jan & Bob served us a delicious breakfast (bacon,scrambled eggs and toast) and we slept soundly in room 6 looking out from the side of the building. The shower was wonderfully hot and the bed cosy. As you would expect in a house of this age the floors are sloping and squeaky, and the doors uneven, but his just added to the charm and for us was really not a problem. We had a parking spot out the back, quite close by, and the house is situated right in the village centre. We ate at The Croft as recommended by Jan, and had a really good meal. On the whole The Chestnuts is highly recommended for your stay in the incredibly pretty Bourton-on-the-Water.

If I start by making it known, I am not a lover of BB usually and prefer hotels, I was plesantly surprised at how welcoming the experience was and what a couple of great nights sleep we all had. Was a bit ricky to find initially, but it is in the "chestnuts" area of the high street. We had room 1 and 3. One tiny detail, was the fact I took my unsteady elderly mother, so the stairs were a challenge but not insurmountable by any means. The rooms were clean, shower hot in my room and pleasantly powerful. Tea making facilities available, lots of supplies, a rest room to relax, tasteful furnishings and extremely comfortable beds. BB was clean and building full of character as promised. Breakfast was fine, no grease,tasty and suitable sized portions. Nice eating area too. What makes this BB are your hosts, warm reception, not in your face but relaxed couple. Bob very friendly but his wife working in the background, make the perfect hosts. They supply wifi, best used in the rest area, not because of any fault of the BB, but signals in this part of the world, both phone and tinternet are rare. Luckily I took my own dongle. But suspect wifi and phone signals poor in the cotswolds generally. Would I stay again? Yes probably would for a relaxing break even though not a BB lover/user. But if I was, these are the couple I want running it.

Recently back from a family break in the Cotswold's where we had an enjoyable stay at Chestnuts B&B.

The Chestnuts is located in the heart of picturesque Bourton-on-the-Water and was an excellent base for our trip. There's no doubt that the hotel has plenty of character, being originally built in the 18th century, it made a nice change from the faceless standardized corporate chain hotels of nowadays.

As for our stay, myself, girlfriend and her 2 boys had the family room. It was a good size with a decent double and 2 singles (no makeshift beds or anything), the bathroom also being a reasonable size too. My mum and girlfriends parents were also with us and they too had good comments about their respective rooms.

A nice touch was having the family room right next door to a tv lounge area, meaning we could put the boys to bed and still have an opportunity to all relax with a well earned glass of wine and chat.

Breakfasts were good, decent choice of cereals, well cooked full English and plenty of toast to follow.

Niggles, the car park was small but you do get a designated spot, although it did mean parking just off the main road. There also seemed to be a milk strike on, because the milk jug on the breakfast table was the smallest i've seen, meaning we were always requesting more milk, there was never enough for cereals, teas etc. which was a tad annoying.

However, the positives far outweigh any negatives and i'd certainly have no hesitation in recommending The Chestnuts if you're planning a visit to this neck of the woods.

The Chestnuts, we were told by the owner is over 300 years old, it is quaint and quirky with sloping floors and old beams, and a delight to stay there. The owners are most welcoming and gave us many ideas on where to visit on our trip, there is also car parking provided. We recently spent 3 nights in this delightful Bed & Breakfast, it was clean and very comfortable, a good breakfast consisting of fresh fruits, cereals the traditional bacon and egg, beautifully cooked, toast, tea and coffee, and a superb location for visiting many of the Cotswold villages. For anyone wishing to visit the area we highly recommend this wonderful, character filled B&B

Spent 3 nights in a good-sized family room (room 5) with 2 full-sized singles and a double bed and plenty of space around them. Room was quiet, clean and comfortable and exactly what we needed as a base for our walking break. In spite of the arctic outside temperature (in early April!) the room was very cosy. The breakfast was excellent with everything you could want (and thankfully not a croissant in sight). There was even a guest fridge and wine glasses available. Jan and Bob were very friendly hosts, it was good value for money, a great central location with lots of good places to eat nearby and even an allocated parked space.
