“Nice Hotel in a typical Cotswold village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

On a day of touring the area we recognosed this area from our research and called in to the Maytime to see if they had a room available. Helpful staff allowed us to look at the rooms and we chose the Tack room and retuned here at around 4pm to check in. All went very smoothly and we adjourned to the bar for drinks. Seems to attract a few locals but there was only one other guest there at this time. Booked for dinner, which was ok, menu was unusual for this area, my wife enjoyed a duck dish but I had a Beef and Ale pie which left a lot to be desired, overcooked, dry and fatty meat. Waitress mentioned this was her last night working here and the hotel was looking for new staff, but her service was fine. Breakfast was again acceptable without being brilliant and the service a little haphazard. At this point I would put this down to teething problems associated with a newer establishment. Its a great old building that has been well preserved and matched to the newer parts of the building out the back. The rooms are great and the outside courtyard would have been great to relax in had the weather been better. Overall we would return here should our travels retuns us to this area, we would like to walk along the river as it is a charming part of the world.

Room Tip: All rooms are of an excellent level and fitted out to a high standard

Situated in a lovely quiet village, this is a charming Inn. Lovely walks nearby. The room in which we stayed was clean and modern. Dinner food is good but the shortish choice on the menu did not change during our three night stay; not a major matter. Friendly staff. There is an attractive outdoor patio.

We stayed for 1 night, and had a very relaxed time. The 2 staff members on duty were fantastic. Tim, was a very knowledgeable lad about where products in the bar were sorced from and making you feel generally attended to. The food was lovely, the room was lovely (farriers room) and the grounds spot on. Would definitely stay again, if I'm ever in the Cotswolds. Thanks guys.

Stayed for just one night and wished in every way that it had been for a week. Lovely room, excellent staff, great food. You won't be disappointed. Even the small details are catered for like providing a small thermos with your milk for teas and coffees. No more UHT here!

Room Tip: Book early. We was a very late booking and didn't get a choice of rooms but the one we had was r...

Visited last week to experience dinner. Physically the Maytime is post card Cotswold valley wonderful (in the summer at least). Staff were helpful and most friendly although the waitress appeared to be learning and somewhat nervous. The food was interesting and extremely well prepared and presented. Wine was not cheap but value for money.

Went here a couple of weeks ago for an evening meal. The service was really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The food was quite different, with Balinese influences, and everything we had was delicious. The wine was also excellent. Would definitely visit here again!

Just spent a weekend at the Maytime Inn at Asthall Oxfordshire. What a lovely Inn located in a wonderful village. Excellent accommodation and very helpful and friendly staff. A fine selection of ales with a very satisfying menu Would be delighted to return for further exploration of surroundings.
