“A wonderful stay. Again!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2011

My wife and I stayed at The Rising Sun Hotel from 28th to 30th October 2011 and it is the second time that we have stayed here.
The staff are the most friendly hotel staff i have ever come across. The restaurant waiters and waitresses are unbelievably friendly and attentive without being over-the-top.
The hotel food is fabulous and is amazing value.
Rooms are cosy without feeling small. Beds are very comfortable. Large clean bath with plenty of hot water for that relaxing soak.
Superb views and we will definitely go for a 3rd, 4th, 5th 6th......... visit!!
I cannot recommend this hotel enough.
It is also a perfect base for exploring the Cotswold villages as we did.
Cannot wait to go back.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 16. Wonderful. Overlooks the garden and out over the valley. Quite close to the ro...

Our whole brass band stayed at this hotel and enjoyed two nights of bed, breakfast and evening meals - the staff were attentive, smiling and very welcoming. Excellent value, super choice of meals for both evening meals and breakfast. None of our party had a single complaint - thank you very much for all your help even with finding a village hall to rehearse in. We would not hesitate in recommending this hotel and hope to return soon

Room Tip: Beautiful views from the rooms at the front of the hotel

Overall a great two night stay. We complained about the smell in our spacious family room and were moved next day to another family room with no excessive room-deodorizing smell. Food was more than adequate in quality and presentation and the service from the staff, overall,from manager to bar staff,excellent. Go for room 17 or 18..family rooms with a great view.

Room Tip: Room 17 or 18!

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and would highly recommend it. Superb 3 star hotel. Stunning views, Exceptional Service, Good Food. Breakfast is well above average. Nicer than many 4 star hotels we have stayed in. Also maximum 5 of 5 for environmental food hygiene rating. Will definitely re-visit.

The first thing that hits you about this place is the beautiful views - stunning!
I thought the actual pub itself was laid out a bit like a whetherspoons but the food was most definitely better than that! The Sunday roast was gorgeous (as was the apple pie!), the burgers looked yummy too.
I hope we can go back!

Arrived in the middle of the hottest October Sunday since records began so the place was very busy. Excellent customer service from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Everyone... reception staff, bar staff, waiting staff, housekeeping staff... all very friendly and welcoming. Although very busy, we didn't have to wait ages to be served in the bar, or in the restaurant that evening. Only minor let-down was the food as the kitchen appeared to have been caught out by the extra demand due to the hot weather and there were a lot of items off the menu. Other than that, a very enjoyable stay. The room, although in the newer part of the hotel, had a beautiful view down the hillside to open countryside and was clean and comfortable. Got a good price through the Old English Inns website. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for room with a view to the front of the hotel.

Having stayed in other more high brow hotels during my travels, not many can hold a candle to this gem, with spectacular views and helpful friendly staff. The hotel is evidently well cared for by the owners with the exterior being painted during my latest visit.

One word of warning ensure you put your handbrake on and leave your car in gear or like myself you are liable to have find that your car has rolled down the car park (great barriers)
