Stow Lodge Hotel

Reviewed November 19, 2012

We travel to the Cotswolds quite often always stopping, during our visits to various places, at the Stow Lodge Hotel for Sunday lunch. Well seen this is a family run hotel. The staff remember us are always pleased to see us and make us feel most welcome. The food is beautifully presented, there is certainly plenty of it and delicious. Take coffee in the comfortable lounge after with its log fire and comfy sofas.

The Cotswolds is such a pretty place and this hotel fits in beautifully. Situated in the town square you barely have to walk a few yards before coming across the delightful little shops and tea rooms. With a wonderful log fire and very friendly staff and great food we will be back for more next year.
Our room was generous and overlooked the church. The only downside were the church bells that ring every quarter of an hour. This was solved by closing the window and secondary glazing which cut the noise out completely. I now know why there was a fan in the wardrobe as in hot weather you would need it.
All in all a perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries.

We only booked for a meal at the restaurant after being briefed by a friend. The food was very traditional English. I could barely finish everything but it was absolutely delicious. The staff was very nice and very helpful.

This is by far the best hotel I've stayed in! When I booked I wanted to stay in the main hotel, but was told it was fully booked, and was offered a room in the coach house, I wasn't keen but agreed. I expected it to be noisy from the road, what a surprise case we never heard a single vehicle. It was really quiet. The room was large, spotlessly clean and warm. The food at both evening and breakfast was delicious, and the Irish coffees are to die for. We will be back soon. Thank you x

We've just returned from a three night break and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had room eight which overlooks the church; it is a very comfortable room with four poster bed, large bath with shower over it. Very comforting to hear the church bells chime every fifteen minutes. Comprehensive menu, food is excellent with generous portions, fillet steak on Saturday night was great. Good choice of wines including St Hallet and also Chateau Musar at only £40 a bottle. Service is very good and staff very friendly. The downside? Can't think of anything. Looking forward to visiting again next year. This was our fifth time and would highly recommend.

My husband and I spent only one night here of the two we had booked because our rental car had a flat tire that partially derailed our trip (don't ever rent from Hertz in this area, they're well-known for flat tires and leaving people stranded -- which we only discovered after it happened to us). However, we would have liked to have stayed longer. The hotel is charming in an old-fashioned, very traditional sort of way, and the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. We were very grateful to them, under the circumstances.

The entrance and grounds of the hotel are really beautiful and it abuts a lovely churchyard with an atmospheric old church. You can see the famous church door, framed by its yew trees, from the windows of the hotel bar. Even on a cold, rainy night, we enjoyed walking around the very charming town of Stow, which has many beautiful shops and restaurants and is within handy reach of the train connections in Moreton-in-Marsh (which, since we had lost our car, we used to go to Oxford).

The hotel has a lovely, cozy, welcoming bar as well as a very beautiful, more formal stone-walled restaurant. We originally booked dinner in the dining room, but once we got settled in the bar we found we were too comfortable to move and we had a very enjoyable dinner there. I'm a vegetarian and it was nice to have so many vegetarian options. My husband and I both agreed that the food was excellent and it's served in very generous portions.

Our room was #2, upstairs in the main house. It was old-fashioned and perhaps even rather stodgy in terms of the decor, but it was spacious and comfortable and had a large, very functional (though perhaps not terribly chic) bathroom. The view over the front gardens was lovely.

I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel as a charming, comfortable, hospitable base for touring the Cotswolds.

Room Tip: Room #2 is quiet, comfortable, and spacious, and has a nice view over the front gardens.

We happened upon the Lodge by chance and were attracted by the vegetarian dishes on the menu. We enjoyed both very much and for under £10 thought it was excellent value. Portions were generous and vegetables cooked to perfection.
The hotel is traditional in its decor but spotlessly clean. Most diners were over 70 and i would guess that reflects the style of the hotel and most dishes on the menu aim at that age group. But they had really thought about the vegetarian dishes and made an efort to try something different.
Service in was excellent.
