We recently stayed at the Burford House hotel on a driving tour around the Cotswolds. It was conveniently located on Burford‘s High Street (ie. the town’s much photographed street) and was easy to find. We booked through the hotel’s website at a rate which also included a full cooked breakfast. Here are the highlights of our stay:
1. Location- If you are looking for a cozy, historic hotel in a Cotswolds town that has good shops and restaurants, the Burford House is your place!
2. Décor- I loved the elegant English interior. It was well furnished and charming. We chose our room from the hotel’s website photos and went for the “Sherbourne” room which had a 4-poster bed. While we appreciated the room’s Tudor atmosphere, it was located at the very top of three flights of stairs (ie. something to note if you have heavy bags since there is no elevator).
3. Toiletries- I love upscale toiletries and was extremely happy with Burford House's choice of Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet shampoo, lotion, bath gel, etc...
4. Service- We were well looked after by Sarah who gave us a variety of restaurant recommendations, brought ice and advised about parking.
5. Food- Our breakfast at the Burford House was excellent and featured bacon, sausages, grilled tomatoes, eggs and toast. In addition, there was a buffet with yogurt, fruit and cereal.
6. Wifi- There was complimentary internet access.
7. Parking- We were there in late Nov. and were able to park on the street across the street from the hotel without charge.
The only real drawback to our night at the Burford House was the street noise. Although we had a room at the very top of the hotel and there were double windows, our room faced the main thoroughfare through Burford. It was busy and loud regardless of the hour with trucks, cars, and motorcycles roaring past. I would really recommend booking a room that does not face the High Street!
