I was given a voucher for an overnight stay at this hotel as a gift and my husband and I stayed one Thursday night in March 2007. We upgraded the room to a cottage suite with garden and hot tub.

We were met by Christa who showed us to our room at the back of the hotel set in gorgeous gardens.

Our suite had it's own front door and was very welcoming. Huge bed with beautiful linen, fully stocked complimentary mini bar and stone fireplace with gas fire, which we instantly switched on as it was a rather cold day. Everything in the room was of top quality, including the Bang and Olfsen phone! The bathroom had a separate double power shower and the bath had a TV screen at the end, which you could change chanels with your toes!

We had dinner that evening in the restaurant. Excellent food, beautifully presented and very good service. After a celebratory bottle of champagne we staggared back to our suite, changed into our cossy's and jumped in the hut tub - perfect!!

The hotel is built out of the honey-coloured cotswold stone, but inside it has been given a very moden decor, which really works. Even the lighting everywhere are works of art.

Is it worth the money? We had a very special stay to celebrate the end of my treatment for breast cancer and we really did have a wonder ful time. However, we felt the suite, although very luxurious, was not value for money - the cost for 1night, dinner & bottle of champagne & breakfast came to £550. If we go back, and I think we would, we would probably book into one of the rooms in the main hotel which aren't quite so pricey.

We stayed for two nights, mid-week in January & got a good deal, atlhough it was still way over-priced. We were upgraded to a suite, and the room & bathroom were fab. However it had so many high-tech gizmos in it & zero explanation on how to use them (ie. even how to play a CD!). We spoke to the manageress/owner and we felt we virtually had to apologise for being so stupid. She couldn't care less & offered no help, but just suggested our CD was too old. Similarly when we asked how to work the under floor heating - her reply was "I can move you back to a small room if you prefer without any of the accessorizes".... We were stunned and felt we had to creep around the hotel like naughty children. This cold reception was mirrored by most of the other staff, so the place completely lacked any atmosphere. We had just come from Whatley Manor which was amazing - and the friendliness of the staff was incomparable. There is no need for such arrogance, or such high prices. The best bit of our stay were the long, well detailed walks that took us away from the hotel into the lovely countryside.

Due to a last minute cancellation, we managed to get the last room in the hotel at very short notice.
Whilst the room was tiny, we had a spectacular view over the nearby houses and hills from the bed....
The garden was lovely - a true oasis and escape from the legions of tour buses on the main street - great sunloungers, chilled glass of white wine, plenty of newspapers..... bliss.
Highlight of our short stay was a fantastic breakfast in bed (for no additional cost - even better!)
There are definitely flaws here: the main one being the cost of the rooms - at Barnsley House nearby, £350 gets you a pretty spectacular room - what I saw of the more expensive rooms at Cotswold House didn't really seem worth the money. Also, I agree with previous comments about the inattentive nature of the staff (except the manager of the bistro, who couldn't have been more helpful).

couldn't afford to stay there for more than one night, but wanted to at least stay at one of the most up-and-coming, buzzed about hotels in england. the staff was not exceptionally welcoming and seemed a bit confused and distracted. room was small, dark, nothing amazing. however, i ordered room service and... maybe i was just tired and hungry, but... it was LITERALLY the BEST meal i've had in my life. hands down. pork medallions with a cream sauce -- even the vegetables were seasoned just right! check out was even more impersonal, rushed, and disinterested as check-in. next time i go to Chipping Campden i will stay at the Kings Arms pub. that looks WAY nicer for 1/3 the price!

We stayed at Cotswold House last August for the first 3 nights of our honeymoon. We were not greeted on arrival by the owner as she checked us in and not once were we offered any congratulations, which would have been nice as we were only married 2 days. The room was pefectly clean and food was fine. The location is good for Stratford, Oxford etc but overall the hotel is unexceptional, really just one step up from an average tourist hotel. We continued our honeymoon in Ireland where we were treated exceptionally well and which made our honeymoon very special and memorable. Little gestures and some friendly remarks can leave very happy memories.
