“Quaint old hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

I was a bit apprehensive about staying here after reading the bad reviews, but I need not have worried because the hotel was very comfortable, the staff are very friendly, the breakfast was very nice (apart from the cheap sausages) room was nice & warm bed was a bit lumpy but I still had a good nights sleep our room was at the very top in the attic not good if you are not good with stairs because there is no lift. The hotel is situated right in the middle of town very convenient for restuarants & looking round the qaint little shops, I would stay here again & would like to come back in the summer.

we had great trepidation having read the reviews about this hotel prior to our arrival on Friday evening 15th February last but all I can say is that the higher management must have followed the advise and complaints issued previous to our visit as the entire atmosphere of the hotel must have changed considerably. The receptionist on arrival was professional pleasant and most helpful., the bar staff again could not do enough for us., The room was clean warm and really comfortable and cosy. We ate out friday night awaiting the outcome of Breakfast but after being served ample well cooked and hot breakfast within minutes of arriving in the dining room we quickly booked the evening Valentine dinner. We were not disappointed. Although the dining room was busy this did not effect the excellant service of the young waiter and waitress., the food itself was incredible and whole some and very good value for money. I was a little disappointed with the breakfast this morning which whilst on the "help yourself" basis the warmer did not do its job terribly well and the food was tepid as apposed to hot., however this did not spoil our lovely weekend in the cotswolds. The town itself we found really friendly and buzzy with the locals turning up for the little flea market in the town hall and the farmers market was of the highest quality with selections of all sorts of goodies and very nice people to talk to., All in all hats off to the Crown and Cushion its staff and all in the town., we have had a really lovely weekend and certainly will be going back again.,

Room Tip: worth going for the slightly larger room which holds a small sofa dressing table etc., and also bein...

On arriving at this very tired Hotel, there was no staff on reception, when a young lady did arrive, she was away with the fairies and did not offer any help with our luggage or directions to our room, which seemed miles away. The room was cold and there was no soap in the bathroom, I `phoned down and informed them, the same girl said there was no soap in the Hotel (one wonders what the chef did when nature called) No soap during our 2 day stay, luckily Boots the chemist was next door, perhaps the hotel didnt know it was there!!! no lead on kettle, had to be put on floor, Room 25 small generator running all night, Valentines menu ran for 3 days, with no a la carte available,Chicken supreme, pan fried steak, how innovative!!! Breakfast was a buffet, where everything was overcooked and cold, the eggs were as hard as biscuits, the locals park in the small car park and go shopping, the receptionist(remember her!) did not have a list of hotel guests car registrations, she said they forget them. I ordered papers on both days, these were left at reception to be collected, as they did not place them outside ones room. Aviod this place until they have bucked their ideas up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was a lovely hotel, the room was very clean and comfortable. The town was small but charming and very pleasant to wander around, though it was snowing during my visit, I think it just added to the charm. What put this hotel over the top for me was the outstanding staff, especially in the hotel pub. As the weather was not the best, the hotel might have been a bit slower than normal. However it gave us a chance to get to know the staff in the pub, as we ended up there every evening. The food was excellent and a good price, again we couldn't have asked for a nicer staff to take care of us. I would highly recommend a visit. The only negative which actually ended up giving us a laugh every time...the hallway to our room was freezing!!! The room was fine....just that blast hallway!!

The hotel itself was lovely, polite staff (mostly) and a good breakfast. The one major disapointment was the freezing cold bedroom. We arrived to find the radiators had not been turned on for our arrival despite the heavy snow. The duvets were extrodinarily thin for this time of year (February), we asked for more blankets and the girl even gave us an extra heater. Clearly they had extra ones to hand because of all the complaints of their glacial rooms. We had infact read reviews and toom hot water bottles but to no avail, we were still shivering all night long.
Another worry was the smoke alarm had been covered up, later we found out it had not even been connected. When we queried this at reception the woman gave a throw away comment about 'the builders were drilling and must have forgotton to take it off' and so we were brushed aside.
Unfortunatly these two matters clouded our view of the hotel which is a great shame as it is set in the idylic Chipping Norton. For these reasons i would not recommend nor would ipI stay in the hotel again.

Room Tip: Take hot water bottles!

Room 21 was classed a superior, superior to what ?.It was badly decorated and tired.A32inch tv was plonked on the dressing table blocking the mirrors,no plug anwhere near the kettle and the courtyard lights beaming in the room all night long despite closing the badly hung curtain . The bathroom had mould on the walls and ceiling,loose tiolet seat and sink taps.The switches for the overhead vanity light ,main room light and extractor fan housing were filthy.Visualy the whole room and bathroom was visually disappointing .
The restaurant and bar however were very good, all the staff were ,friendly ,helpful and polite. I could only recommend this hotel for food and drink ,i do not recommend staying overnight.

Room Tip: Check you room 1st if you have to stay here

Having made a very late booking at a great price, we were very happy with our lovely Four poster room. Yes the corridor was cold but room was warm enough. The lunch we had in the bar was excellent, as was the drink & staff. The breakfast was the finest cooked to order breakfast I have had in any hotel in recent times. Again staff were delightful & very helpful. I have to admit having seen some of the reviews I wondered whether we might regret our last minute decision, but the opposite was definitely true. Will be staying again.
Just one point that is worth mentioning.The hotel is on the High Street close to the Town clock which chimed throughout the night - not so good if you are a light sleeper.
