This area is a massive tourist destination so being on a business trip is a little different. The hotel is in an old building and overall very nice. I had a room opposite the bar area, #28, so in the evenings could not open my blinds as the patio was just across the drive. I visited in July 2013 though when the weather was so hot that the blinds were never opened to try and keep the room cool. Saying that though I never heard any noise from the patio area in the evenings, even during the BBQ night. The food is fantastic and the employees are all very friendly and helpful. I ate a couple of breakfast, lunches and dinners in the restaurant / bar and was impressed with them. Shower in the room was very good. There is parking and they allow dogs when up up charge is paid - my parents stayed with their dogs and also really enjoyed their stay. Two issues, no ac, but then Britain never gets this type of weather, and the Internet is intermittent and does not reach the rooms - this needs some resolution. I marked sleep quality as average due to the heat vs the bed - the bed itself was very comfortable.

Room Tip: I liked being in the separate area across the drive, 28 / 29 and I think there are a few cottages av...

We arrived at noon on a Saturday and this market town was filled with people and vehicles. It is without a doubt a popular destination especially on weekends. We managed to find a parking spot on site and were infomed by the front desk that it does get crowded on weekends as the inhouse restaurant is very popular among the locals. It did not help that it was the Father's Day weekend too!
We were shown to our room which overlooked the conservatory and open dining deck, via the long route .... through a long corridor and up and down stairs. Most interesting my husband noted. Luckily we had just a couple of hand carry luggage with us! The receptionist however did point out to us a shorter more convenient route to get to the car park and dinng area from our room. The room, which was large enough, was decorated in a classical style with an armoire, a double bed, a dressing table, a tv propped on a small table (looked out of place) and a low table with coffe/tea facility. The bathroom was spacious and modern. The armoire door creaked everytime you opened or closed it and so did the floorboards in the room and corridor. A touch of authenticity I guess. We noted that the staff room was below and it gets noisy when the staff gather during their break time. We were also worried that late night revellers on the open deck may keep us up all night but the weather put an end to it. Furthermore we noted a sign at the door fo the pub which informed that guests/customers were not permitted to sit outside after 10pm. We were unable to secure a dinner reservation on our first night and so made sure we made one for the next evening.
The hotel entrance is small and the lobby is quite dim. Opposite the front desk is a small cafe re and a few steps down is a lounge where one could relax with a cuppa, have a chat or just read the papers. A fireplace dominates this area. Walking past the cafe is the the entrance to the pub and you can also enter the conservatory and restaurant through the pub.
Breakfast is served in the restaurant and the usual variety of fruits, cereals and juices are available. The cooked breakfast also has the usual variety plus an Indian breakfast dish which I ordered. The curry was good but unfortunately the flat bread was undercooked. Service and staff were excellent.
When we presented ourselves at the dinning room for dinner that evening, the staff apologised that we would have to wait another half hour even though we had a reservation. It was Father;s Day and the restaurant was full. We decided to have a drink at the pub whilst waiting for our table. Half hour later the bartender told us that it will be much longer than anticipated and said we could order our meal and have it in the pub. We did.
Overall the hotel was good although pricey (weekend rate) and the service and staff excellent. Located across the road from the old market hall, this property is very much in demand and the restaurant is well known for its Indian dining experience. I would definetly recommend this place to my friends....the old world decor and limestone building just adds to the experience and its easy walking distance to many of the attractions is a plus.

Stayed in this hotel with a group of friends.
Very nice rooms, friendly service, excellent food, great beer.
Reception was very firndly and we were even shown to our room. Makes a change form the usual practice of simply being handed a key and given directions.
We ate in the bar rather than the restaurant. The food was very good for pub style food - the fish and chips is highly recommended.
Small selection of excellent local ales.
Would definitely stay here again if i was looking for somewhere in the area.

My husband and I dined at the Noel Arms hotel on a Sunday evening. On arriving we were shown immediately to our table.
We were limited to the menu as booked using a deal meal for an Indian 3 course dinner. However, we could not fault the meal from starter to dessert. We both had the platters for starters. I opted for the Sri Lankan black lamb curry and my husband order non-Indian and went for the pork medallions. We both had the banana fritters for dessert - all very good and beautifully presented.
Our waitress was very welcoming and service was excellent.
The only downfall is the restaurant is at the back of the hotel and when we went outside for coffee and Sunday was gorgeous weather 28 degrees - the patio area is in a courtyard with houses and the small road leading to the houses - not much traffic but not a pretty view and overlooked by the hotel rooms on the oppposite site of the seating area.

Room Tip: We did not stay only dined in the Restaurant

Being recently retired, my wife and I have embarked on our mission to discover Britain. The Cotswolds were our first port of call, specifically the Noel Arms Hotel for a long weekend 29/30th June. A wonderful start to what we hope to be a few years of pleasant experiences. Our accommodation was everything one would require with the friendliest and most convivial staff. We dined here two nights and thoroughly enjoyed the varied menu. Adequate car parking on site was a bonus. As good a location for discovering the Cotswolds as you would wish to find.

Room Tip: No lifts so avoid upper floors if mobility a problem.

I would not advise any one to stay in room 28 great bathroom, average room very clean, but no privacy what so ever had to keep the blinds closed the whole of the time we stayed, this room is directly opposite the conservatory and a walk way through the car park to ajoining properties at the rear of the hotel, extremely hot as this room is south facing, a small fan is in the room which had to be left on 24/7 so the hotel must be aware of the problem.
Staff and food 10/10

Room Tip: do not stay in rooms opposite the conservatory no privacy what so ever
