I have to stay in various types of hotels for both personel and business reasons. i have stayed at the savoy , dorchester and even to holiday inn express over the years.
recently due to our son being in oxford univ my wife and i have been staying in various hotels in and around oxford and all i can say is the Cotswold is 1 of the nicest hotels i have stayed in.
i found the sevice and the attitude of all the staff to be exceptional, especially the manager of the restaurant who was woking late into the evening but also there 1st thing on the sunday morning, cheerful as ever.
the bedroom was old fashioned but my wife loves that. the courtyard was beautiful (maybe an issue in the summer nights!) but the room was very clean and bed comfortable. i would say the only down side was the noise from a function on sat night was still heard in the room but that was over by 11.
we found the meal in the restaurant to be excellent on the sat. night (the chef even made a stater for us not on menu!)
the breakfast was excellent and the staff were very accomodating on sunday morning making our stay most pleasurable.
i would have no hesitation in reccomending this hotel and i would even have a small conference at this venue
never mind a 3 star hotel i class this as 5 star
