Lovely furnished cottage with a boutique feel. However part of me feels perhaps style over substance. The sofa and armchair in the sitting room do not lend themselves for a relaxing evening in front of the TV (the sofa is a little small for two to sit comfortably and the armchair is too upright). Just my opinion mind as all furnishings are of a high quality. The super king size bed and pillows were especially comfy, a real treat!
Despite being provided with a small welcome hamper another small disappoint was the lack of a few basics such as cooking oil and enough tea for two over a four night stay. Also cleaning products provided to mop up the odd spillage.
The rear garden is a bonus to sit out in the evening and to let the dog out before bed, however as it backs on to the rear/kitchen area of the Broadway hotel they need to remind their staff when taking a break out the back in the evening to watch their language. Afterall they are ambassadors of the hotel and when it is quiet you can't avoid hearing and some of the words were not what I really wanted to hear!
Overall it wouldn't take much to make this a 5 star cottage, just not there yet.
The cottage is absolutely beautiful, location couldn't be better we're just around the corner from the Green & Broadway Hotel. Food & staff are lovely. We also have a private garden which is well kept, great for us as we took our two dogs. Great walks around the village. Will definitely be back. Thank you The Broadway Hotel
This beautifully equipped cottage was a delight. Very comfy bed, lovely private garden and all in walking distance of the shops, cafes and restaurants. The little additional luxuries of bathrobes and hamper make this a top rental
We are finishing up an almost ten-day stay here at this cottage around the corner from the Broadway's High Street and city center. There were just the two of us, but the cottage felt like a full-sized home. It is beautifully decorated,with contemporary furnishings that do not diminish the Cotswold cottage "feel." The private back garden was beautiful; it was just too cold for us to sit out there much. Plenty of hot water and a luxurious king-sized bed. Broadway is the perfect base from which to explore all the other Cotswold villages, public footpaths, and Stratford-upon-Avon, to name just a few attractions nearby. It IS just around the corner from High Street, on a major two-laned road heading out of town, so there is the noise of traffic especially if you like to have the windows open. So if you want total peace and quiet and silence, find somewhere else. If you value the feel of living in the city center, this is a beautiful cottage. It is managed by the Broadway Hotel, whose manager Richard, could not have been more knowledgeable, friendly, professional AND available. We are sad to leave!
We love Broadway, and knew this cottage would be special.
its gorgeous, everything has been decorated to such an amazing spec.
the kitchen is fully stocked with all the equipment you need, and the benefit of the garden was great for our four legged friend.
My husband and I didn't want to leave, it was perfect & such a great location. Great way to see in the New Year.
Have been visiting Broadway for a number of years due to family connection and we usually stay at The Broadway Hotel. This year when we enquired about a stay between Christmas/New Year, Bumble Bee Cottage was mentioned as it had been recently added to the hotels portfolio. It is a perfect base for Broadway and surrounding area and just behind hotel, so if you want breakfast/evening meals, just a very short walk away. Cottage has everything you could possible need for a very comfortable stay, they really have put a great deal of thought into making it a perfect getaway from it all for two with furnishings and fittings to a high standard, along with a small garden/patio also. Grateful thanks to Debbie on reception at The Broadway for suggesting Bumble Bee Cottage to us and look forward to seeing you all at Easter.
What an amazing little cottage, beautifully furnished and so well equipped. Very comfortable stay with our four legged friend! Lovely enclosed garden with patio and bbq. Enjoyed a delicious dinner in the adjacent Broadway Hotel, breakfast was delivered to the cottage in the morning! Beautiful village. Found some great walks with dog. Recommend highly. Thanks.
