A family group of 8 stayed here for the weekend, to attend a wedding in Calcot.
Our hosts, Trevor & Jane, & all their staff were so friendly, helpful & very welcoming.
We had Room 10 & it is a lovely big double room (or family room, as it also had an extra single available in a separate area, if needed). Magnificent views over the valley. We thought the road in front might be noisy, but we honestly didn't even notice it. Slept like logs in very comfy bed, lovely linens & fluffy towels in the en suite bathroom. Trevor - New loo seat needed in this bathroom - it didn't stay up ! Also hot tap on wash basin needs new washer, but otherwise all good. "White Company toiletries" in Bathroom (& all Cloakrooms). Plenty of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, Horlicks, biscuits, etc., in room & decent sized kettle, which is always good! TV in room. Could perhaps have a very slightly larger tv as difficult to see the screen from the bed. There was a wee "blip" on Friday afternoon/ evening when the central heating boiler went on the blink, but the engineer came, & in order to warm the building up again, the heating was left on full blast all night. We were provided with an electric heater, too, if we needed it.
Bars are cosy. Lovely log fires. The boys enjoyed the local beers. Excellent Bar Food. Good menu variety. Enjoyed Bar lunches, great sandwiches, & Suppers over the weekend. Between the 8 of us, we tried most dishes. Venison steaks superb! Sweets great. Excellent spicy Apple Tart. nice local Ice Creams. The Restaurant for Dinner lacks a wee bit of "atmosphere". Breakfast service was a tad chaotic at times, but nevertheless, it was always friendly & nothing was ever too much trouble for the staff. Just ask & you get! Plenty of choice on Breakfast menu. Between us, we tried everything! As with any business, new owners need a wee bit of time to get things absolutely right, so a few little "tweaks" here & there may be required, but Trevor & Jane are certainly going in the right direction. Would definitely recommend this beautiful old historic Inn as a lovely place to stay & enjoy a relaxing break in beautiful Gloucestershire countryside. Try a walk up the hill behind, on the lovely old Common. Just a small slope then flat for walking, so easy to do.
We're going to have an "Amberley Inn" reunion in the autumn! Thanks to Trevor, Jane, & ALL the lads 'n' lasses there - we had a great weekend!
