My wife and I stayed here mid week in September 2013. We had been on the phone previously enquiring about facilities to store our bikes etc. The staff member Kelly on the phone was so helpful. Not only did she offer the use of the boiler room to store our bikes securely, she allowed us when we requested her to keep my precious and very expensive road bike in the room with us (Yup, I really love my bike!). She did warn us that the room we had booked was not very big and that it would have been a squeeze to keep the bike in the room.

We didn't end up taking the bikes, but Kelly the receptionist unbeknownst to us had upgraded us to a bigger room so we could keep the bike in comfort with us in the room. The property is on the high street but chipping Camden high street is lovely and not very busy. The room was very spacious and bathroom was done up beautifully.

The ventilation for this room is not great and in the summer months it could get a bit hot. They do have a portable fan, but the sun streaming into this south facing room can still make it hot. We stayed in room 28 and there is a store room adjacent to this that can be a bit noisy. On our first morning we woke up to the sounds of beer kegs being delivered etc. When we later spoke to the management they were so gracious and apologetic. They offered us another room, but we decided to stay in the same room. The next day it was a lot quieter. Think they may have had a word with the staff.

The food was superb and there is an award winning chef known for his curries. There is also an amazing cake shop in the reception area. We had an autumn deal which entitled us to a free Main meal every night we stayed. We also used Spa facilities at their sister hotel across the street which was amazing. We will definitely stay here again although I would recommend if you wanted the quietest rooms and a loooong sleep in then don't get the ones facing the courtyard on the conservatory side. Although the noise is only on delivery days and that too after 8am.

I stayed here for just one night but loved it. We had room 26 which is on the ground floor and over looks the car park. The chef is Sri Lankan and has excellent curries on the menu as well as the usual fare. He evens does a Sri Lankan breakfast curry. The staff were brilliant . Alex on reception was a delightful lady who showed us to our room . Can't recall that ever happening before! Chipping Camden is a beautiful Cotswold village and a good base to explore from . If I have to nit pick here are mine.
1. No wi fi in the rooms
2. Small television
3. Rooms a bit dark

This is a very old hotel, but that is part of the charm. Bathroom was updated, restaurant was good, and the staff was very helpful. Well located in the center of Chipping Campden. Nice to have a pub and restaurant, and even a small coffee shop. Would have been nice to have WiFi in the rooms, but it was accessible in the common areas.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the car park, but was not a problem. Very quiet little village at night.

Had a weekend break, room was small, tired and chinzy décor, mouldy bathroom and over all the room was so DARK! lit with 20 watt bulbs. V disappointing this hotel needs an overhaul it's theme was confusing odd plates on the wall and then the bathroom had been attempted to be modern with a new shower but the mould and mastic from the previous was still left on the tiles, the bathroom floor times were yellow and horrid. Really hope the owner invests in this place it could be lovely and cust service needs too be looked at too. I haven't mentioned breakfast such minute portions, a table with 3 croissants in basket and a coffee in a pump for self selections get your act together just basic stuff.

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel!

Second stay here. And the first was in 1972, so this was a nostalgic trip back, having found our same bed on the Noel Arms website. We slept in the same honeymoon bed, the old four poster in room four. Our room, #4, was second floor, on the main street, but quiet, the one double-hung window open the whole visit. Room was smaller then I remember, 16x16, plus bathroom and non-functioning fireplace in the corner. Staff was friendly. Restaurant was good and probably as big as any in town, but oddly not named and not rated on Tripadvisor.

The best part of this stay was Chipping Camden. The Camden Way starts by the hotel, and a one mile walk up it rewards with super view and good choice for picnic. Knees now don't permit longer walk to Broadway. Our visit here this time was by taxi, excellent service and reasonable price by chippingcamdencars. Three nights here. Tuesday had a free walking tour by volunteer town wardens.

The old inn and town were fine, but one might miss these creature comforts: Elevator, air conditioning, room safe, adequate lighting. Well, our room did have free Wifi.

Room Tip: Room 4 is not over the bar. It's on the front, but no traffic noise until a bit after 7am. The...

Great hotel manager, think his name was Andrew. We recently had a 2 night stay (10 of us) ,and although we had a couple of issues. with service on the Friday evening everything was very good. Unfortunately the room we were allocated (no7) was boiling hot and we were unable to sleep even when we decided that 2 people on the bed was too much so I lay on the floor it was just to hot and uncomfortable, it appears to be the only room that doesn't have sash windows and there is no ventilation in the corridor of that wing. At 5am we called the duty manager and he was very understanding, and eventually on the Saturday morning they were able to swap us over into a room at cotswold house. I think a mobile air con unit would do the trick and save people a lot of bother. Anyway the staff and management deserve a THANKYOU. Also enjoyed the spa facilities , and would recomend the food. Would definitely stay again, and can also recommend cotswold house across the road..Thankyou again

Room Tip: Room 7 gets very hot as it has no sash windows and the corridor on that wing has no ventilation, I a...
