The White Hart Stow
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Lovely room, recommend the Stag with its deep bath in the corner of the room. Very comfy bed asleep within minutes! Great view over the square, great shops! Perfect location for other visits to neighbouring towns. The pub itself very tastefully decorated, wonderfully relaxing. Good breakfast, great service. Would be good to have small chest of drawers in the room beside the wardrobe as storage limited for two over 4 nights, otherwise a perfect break! We hope to come back soon!

Room Tip: Largest room is the Stag

We stayed in the "Fallow" room which I believe is the smallest of the 5/6 rooms the White Hart have. Despite this, the room isn't "cheap" so we did have expectations. The room is above a pub and overlooks the market square in Stow. There was no noise from the pub at all but there was a town festival the next day so we were woken very early with a lot of noise. There is obviously no double glazing as we heard everything. Unsure how loud this would be on a normal day - I doubt that level of noise happens often and the hotel couldn't have avoided it. There was certainly no street noise on the Sunday night.

The room was indeed quite small. However, it was really well designed. The bed was comfortable and the tv was positioned on the wall so it didn't take any space. The bed side table, rug and window seat were all of good quality and looked lovely. Lovely rug and small fireplace in the room.

The only real negative I have is the bathroom didn't feel very well thought out. It is obviously a small space, but it really didn't make the most of it. There was very little shelving/storage in there which made it a bit of an awkward space.

We were checked in early, and by a friendly man who I believe was possibly the manager. Breakfast was swift, hot and tasted lovely. The lady who did worked at breakfast was very effiicient and obviously experienced.

Overall a good experience of the hotel itself and would stay again if I was passing through.

Room Tip: Although the Fallow room is small, it is really well designed and comfortable. Would reocmend it if...

We stayed two nights in the Roe room at this quaint little pub. The bed was extremely comfortable (being only a double was a wee bit snug for us two 'chubbies'). The place and our room was very clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom was good size and very clean, the Roe is a good size and, being a very old building, had a steep slope which was entertaining in walking up hill to the bathroom also items on the table kept sliding down it. Two steep steps to bathroom so if you have very bad knees you'll struggle. Great breakfast choices and the chef does perfect poached eggs! We didn't need to use the pub's carpark, found spaces out front no problem. Need to keep curtain closed as people use the fire exit (directly outside) as normal access to rear courtyard

We visited on a very hottest of days .... and enjoyed a well kept ale by the Arkell's Brewery. The place has a lot of character and atmosphere ... the staff were very friendly. We sat outside initially and then it became too hot so we went indoors. The building has very thick walls that was keeping the inside cool and, I would imagine, they would keep the place warm in winter. Certainly happy to visit again, if we ever return to Stow.

We stayed one night, bed and breakfast, as we were elsewhere for dinner. Comfortable room, good shower, very good breakfast! Friendly and helpful staff. Old biuldings like this are very difficult to maintain, and I'm glad it's not my responsibility!
Excellent location on the square, although parking might be challenging.

Room Tip: Old pubs/hotels like this have small rooms, and stairs. If you adaptable, fine. It is not a modern h...

Stayed at the White Hart for two nights on 28th & 29th June. Stow is a beautiful village with stunning countryside, but if I was returning, I would not recommend this hotel. When we arrived we were kept waiting, but the staff member was friendly enough. The hotel itself is very old so you expect a few creaky floorboards, but we felt the decor was quite tired and a there was a dangerous loose carpet in the hallway. Also, to get into the en suite there were two steep steps, which may be an issue for a less able person. The room was quite dirty in places although Berliner and towels were fine. We had breakfast the first morning, which was very poor quality and both our eggs were under-cooked. We did not eat here in the evening as we thought if they couldn't cook an egg, what would a main meal be like! The manager was present a few times while we were in the bar, but he did not make us feel welcome. On the second night, well after midnight as we were trying to sleep, the manager returned from a night out with a group of his friends who continued their party downstairs making a huge noise. It was so loud that it sounded as though they were right outside our door. In the end my partner banged on the floor and the noise stopped, but I really felt this was unprofessional. We left early the next day as we didn't mind missing breakfast.

We stayed here to celebrate my husbands birthday for one night only. We opted for the best room, the stag suite costing £125 for the night but including breakfast and boasting a king size bed and roll top bath big enough for two to share. We had very much been looking forward to our mini getaway and so decided to push the boat out!!! The room was lovely and spacious and did house said bath - although not really big enough for two average sized people! The fact that there was no tap end does not mean its big enough for two!!

In terms of cleanliness, it was, it was a lovely layout with loads of character, the selection of drinks good and the food was really lovely, worth the price indeed. All in all, great location, great venue, great food and reasonable price.

Sadly I would never stay here again as we felt most unwelcome!! The customers service really lets this down massively. If you like to be made to feel that your not welcome then stay here, I couldn't wait to leave. I didn't even want to ask if we could leave our car in the car park they have round the back as I didn't want to put them out too much. Don't ask for extra butter with your breakfast, I got a huge sigh for that request, and when you say to the guy running the bar at nighttime, when do you close the bar, instead of "when the residents have retired", what he actually means is when he's had enough and wants to go home, which was aprox 12.30pm. Also when you want another drink, you have to go and find him down the back in the restaurant somewhere, and again you are greeted with a huge sigh for daring to ask for a top up. I felt judged and unwelcome. If the customer service was improved, this would be a knockout venue, I'd rather stay in a shed and have top notch service then the white hart and be made to feel like an inconvenience!
