“Lovely stay”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

We stayed one night at the Lamb Inn and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We had the dinner bed and breakfast package. Dinner was great although if you prefer something less formal I suggest the bar area, which is nice and cosy.

Breakfast was revelation, probably one of best breakfast we've had in years.

Our room, the stable, was small but quite adequate, don't expect modern luxury, it was quaint and quirky. But nice and quiet.

Service was very good.

Nice old inn, simply decorated with many thoughtful amenities. The location is quiet and within walking distance of the main street in town. I love beautifully decorated spaces, and though this inn was very pleasant, it fell a little bit short.

The lamb is a stunning quaint building with a beautiful terrace garden. The staff really are very good and I cannot fault the service we received. We stayed in Rosie room which was dog friendly. The room was lovely however it was compact when I say compact I mean tiny. This didn't bother us as we had our own entrance and a small private garden which was great for the dogs and meant we didn't feel trapped in the compact room As had door open. However if this was winter and the door was shut would have felt claustrophobic. We had mini dogs which was fine but the room would have been to small For larger breed. The garden is lovely. We ate in the bar I had omelette and salad which was fine. Partner had steak which was bit overcooked. Bar is lovely setting to sit and enjoy a drink. Cooked breakfast was lovely but stone cold didn't complain as they had set up
A table in the drawing room so we could eat with dogs. We moved after 1st night as felt £169 was to much for the compact room & whoever was above us liked to walk heavily lol overall a
Lovely place would return but ask
For a larger room and hot breakfast.

Please let us know when you next visit and it will be a pleasure to show you a few of our bedrooms. All are individual and traditional but lavished with Molton Brown, Nespresso machines, Cotswold Lavender and our Chef’s homemade flapjacks! Please stop by again soon.

Great little place, we had an amazing room with a huge bathroom which was very quiet and not facing the road. Beautiful cream tea in the gorgeous gardens followed by a fantastic dinner, wonderful steak! We love Burford and feel this place is a superbly quaint old fashioned property. If you are the type that wants to be fussed over and enjoy bling or a contemporary style, it may not be for you, but we loved the very good service and friendly staff. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here with dinner and it is a great place from which to explore the beautiful Cotswolds.

Thank you. I will keep the title of this review in my head and keep repeating! We will continue to make sure that “bling” is kept away from the Lamb and keep our concentration on the genuinely natural product that is the Lamb Inn.

We found this up a quiet side-street. Staff were extremely polite and service was excellent. The atmosphere inside is friendly and old-fashioned with stone floors and lots of charm. The food was very good: we had mixed platters and everything was fresh and full of flavour. I would highly recommend this pub.

We had a nice nights stay in a suite at the Lamb inn and overall the hotel is very nice. I didn't think the standard of the bathroom overall though was at all upto what you would expect for the money. The bathroom has been fitted in to an old building but even so the shower pressure was poor and the general condition of the tiles and towels wasn't great.
Nice meal in the bar thoigh and Burford itself is very quant and the hoel does have a lovely garden and tables outside.
The other negative experience was that we bought an ornamental elephant for £55.00 from the charity "elephants parade" collection in a shop in the high street called the Oxford Picture Company and when I got home I decided to order another one and discovered that they where in fact only £29.95 if you bought them direct from the chairty website so we were properly ripped off as "tourists". Awful when you think that these items are being sold for a good cause and so that is what you think you are paying a premium for. If you want to buy one buy direct from the charities website.

Thank you for your kind review. I am not pleased to hear that your bathroom had a negative impact on your visit and I have taken your comments on board. I hope that in the future we can organise “Allium” for you as this is our senior room and the bathroom does not disappoint. Please note that the room you stayed in is not a suite and is graded as a four-poster bedroom where the bed itself is the main feature.
