“50th Birthday Celebrations”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

I drove to the Cotswolds (in 2012) to find a lovely venue for my 'special' 50th Birthday celebrations (in January 2013), & out of all the property I viewed I chose The Hare & Hounds, near Tetbury.

& Suffice to say, it was an absolutely fantastic & special occasion.

Not only was the Hotel stunning (inside & out), but it had just snowed (on 18th January), so the scenery was covered in a blanket of snow, & it was so cosy inside with all the open roaring fires + log burners burning away.

& The Food was excellent, both on the Friday Night in the Hotel Pub, but also on the Saturday Night for my actual 50th Birthday 'fine dining experience'.

& The Hotel Staff were so accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. & They were so efficient, but also very kind & helpful. (I cannot praise the Staff enough!).

They very kindly offered me the private use of their Drawing Room (with open roaring fire) & the attached Library, which was perfect for a private 'sit-down' fine dining experience for a group of peope. (e,g, Cosy & intimate & private + 'special').

The entire weekend was brilliant & I would definitely recommend The Hare & Hounds Hotel for a quiet romantic break, as well as for a special occasion.

Sigrid

Met some friends here for dinner last week and the food and service was fantastic.
Unfortunately there was no atmosphere as it was so quiet but it was a lovely evening.
It is quite expensive but would be lovely for special occasions.

This was our second visit to Hare & Hounds and we had a really lovely time once again. We booked for the Sublime Sunday offer which is a great price for what you get! The Sunday lunch we had was so yummy, and plenty of food!! The staff are all very friendly and do what they can to make your stay a good one. Our room was located in the main hotel and was a very nice room lovely and big, however there were just a few small details that slightly let it down... in the bathroom i felt it hadn't been cleaned properly there were a few hairs in the bath, and the boxing behind the toilet was dusty and had a few 'nasty' hairs. I should have really mentioned this to reception to give them a chance to change our room or have it cleaned again. Also one of the lights in the bedroom ceiling was not working and a light on the bedside table. The little pot in our room that held coffees/teas etc was quite mucky covered in old coffee and milk stains it looked like. These points are only minor and didn't effect how much we enjoyed our stay! Breakfast was really really good!! Think best breakfast we've had anywhere!

We stayed here for 2 nights, using the hotel website's 2 nights for the price of one offer. The hotel was lovely, we were in a large room in a cottage. The decor was lovely, there was very large bed and the Molton Brown toiletries were a nice touch. The breakfast was really yummy and there was lots of choice. The communal areas were also very nice, log fires in the lounge and looked after gardens.

The only reasons I didn't give it 5 stars are that the room we had was located close to a delivery bay and the road into the hotel and so was a little noisy in the mornings, there were a few scuffs on the walls and the food in the hotel bar we were not that impressed with.

My wife and I took advantage of a Tesco Rewards deal and stayed for 2 nights at the Hare and Hounds. The room was excellent and the food in the bar of an evening was good quality and reasonably priced. The breakfasts were top quality and the service first class. We had really good weather and will return. I recommend it.

We have just returned from spending a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend in this lovely hotel.
I can not praise the staff enough, the standard of service was spot on in every department. The fact that our room was upgraded to a suite made our stay even better; we felt very spoilt!
The main hotel is an old building with plenty of character and real log fires. We stayed in the newer building which is set in the grounds and beautifully decorated.
We enjoyed a particularly fine dinner in the restaurant on Saturday night and I can not recommend the fillet steak enough; thank you chef.
Breakfast was also very good although it would be nicer if it was served later than 10.00am at the weekend but that is a minor quibble from a non morning person!
I would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to return again one day.

Thank you for recognizing our staff in your review, they are our greatest asset and all nice people as well. Chef is very pleased that you enjoyed dinner in the Beaufort Restaurant, his team put a lot of hard work and care into their food so it really helps morale when guests are good enough to let us know when they have great experiences.
