For £150 for a double room for one night I expected more. Having stayed in many hotels and B&B's I think this was very expensive for what you got. The room was perfectly adequate but was at the top of the house with a very small window which meant you had to have the light on even though it was sunshine outside.

The hotel is slightly old fashioned with sheets and blankets on the bed rather than duvets, they seem to cater more for the mature guest, we are in our mid forties and were the youngest there by some way.

However the grounds and location are lovely and the breakfast was good.

We've been here several times and just LOVE it. It's perfectly located to explore the Cotswolds, right in the middle of Stow but set back from the town square in beautifully kept gardens which make it so peaceful. All of the staff are friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. It has a comfy lounge with a lovely open fire, a cosy bar area and a pleasant restaurant with delicious breakfasts. The bedrooms are roomy and comfortable and the huge white fluffy bath towels are a treat. The whole hotel is spotlessly clean. If you don't want to eat in the hotel - the food is great btw - Stow has several great pubs and restaurants to choose from. A fabulous hotel in a lovely market town. Totally recommend this hotel.

Just back from a 2 night break at the Stow Lodge, and had a wonderful time. We stayed in the Chalet Suite, a little bungalow in the gorgeous hotel gardens. Very comfortable beds, 2 leather recliners, a large flat screen TV, separate dressing room, large bathroom and an outside area with our own garden table and chairs. The staff were friendly and helpful, and breakfast was very good. Very sad to leave!

Room Tip: Room 30 (the Chalet Suite) was lovely. Separate from the rest of the hotel, overlooking the garden...

We have been using this hotel for 28 years and have always been completely satisfied with our stays. If u want modern and boutique hotels stay away! It is olde worlde cosy and comfortable. Spotlessly clean. Ee stayed in a room in the coach house it was lovely. The bathrooms were clean and have been updated since our last visit . The food was lovely freshly cooked nicely presented english food. Theres only one place for us to stay when visiting Stow and thats Stow Lodge!!!

We always prefer to stay in privately owned hotels as you nearly always get better personal service. This was definitely the case here. We booked for B/B and Evening Dinner and it certainly surpassed our expectations. We could not fault the food. It was so nice to be served individually even for breakfast rather than buffet style which many of the chains of hotels provide. The hotel has great character and warmth. It was just the place to go with its welcoming log fires. A sign of a good hotel is retaining its staff. Many of the staff here had worked for the owner's for many years and spoke highly of them. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. We stayed in a four poster bedded room. It was extremely comfortable. We shall definitely return.

I had booked this hotel with such high expectations...maybe that was my fault. I liked the idea of it being a former rectory, a historical building and gardens. It seemed so charming on paper, and from the outside it was. But it is a bit-run down and shows it age and not in a good historical sense either. It might seem trivial,but our bed was too soft...I mean like marshmallow soft. But they did have large fluffy towels. I think they cater to an older clientele (and we are in our 50's and were the youngest ones there by decades). When we asked for restaurant recommendations (after being told that their restaurant was full that evening) we were told that they couldn't recommend any place else in Stow on the Wold. They could tell us other restaurant names, but they all had mixed reviews from other guests. We did eat in their restaurant another night of our 3 night stay. And the food was good. I had the chicken curry and my husband had the haddock. I think our interaction with the staff just seemed so impersonal, that it affected our stay. I think we will look for another village in the Cotswold to stay in next time.
