“Christmas at this inn”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We went here as a family of 5 Christmas Eve to Boxing Day. Admittedly our room, no.15, was very small but the service, hospitality and food was excellent. We had three meals here and the standard was exceptionally good. Would highly recommend this Inn for a short stay whilst exploring the Cotswolds.

Room Tip: Not number fifteen in the old part of the Inn, there are newer rooms in the extension

My boyfriend and I were staying in Northleach and visited the Wheatsheaf on two occassions. The first time we were sat in a building to the rear of the main restaurant that was cold and I would not recommend being placed there or accepting a table if offered it. We had a lovely second visit sat at the main bar by the fire and staff were very helpful with excellent bar snacks.

Thanks a lot - very professional staff without feeling formal at all. Good beer, good food, lovely bedrooms - free standing bath. Can't fault the village or anything really. One of the best country pub/hotels we've stayed at.

We stayed for one night in the hotels largest room, room 14. I was told over the phone at the time of booking that room 14 was the largest and most luxurious of the available bedrooms, unfortunately, although the room was large it did not have a wardrobe or anywhere to store ones items of clothing...perhaps without them, the room felt spacious.

The roll top bath in the separate bathroom was lovely however, this was over shadowed by the noisy toilet when flushed. Unfortunately, the noise lasted for approximately 20 seconds and we were sure could be heard throughout the bedrooms above.

We enquirer about the towel radiator in the bedroom and we're informed that they would heat during the night as they were awaiting an oil delivery, the heaters did not turn on during the night, meaning the towels were still damp and it was a little chilly when we woke up.

That said, the staff and food were brilliant. The bar and restaurant is very popular and even though the restaurant was busy, we were made to feel that any member of staff could assist or advise with any questions. The bar holds an extensive amount of gins and wines, the bartender was most helpful when letting us try the wine for the evening and the log fires kept the place warm with a cosy feel.

Overall. I would recommend this hotel as a hidden getaway in a quaint village. I would highlight that the building is very old and could do with a little extra money spent here and there however, the food and ambiance makes up for any repairs / restoration.

Thankyou for a lovely night at The Wheatsheaf. As teachers we always look to go somewhere relaxing on the day we break up. Now we've found the perfect place! Located in a sweet little village, The Wheatsheaf Inn is cosy, relaxing and a little bit of luxury at an affordable price.
The room was gorgeous (with a bath in the room) and the ambience in the restaurant/bar/hotel lovely. The bath bubbles and bath salts were a fab treat. Food was gorgeous and I can honestly say breakfast was THE best breakfast I've had: Fresh orange juice, loose leaf tea or fresh coffee, amazing bread to toast and the eggs royale was amazing! We left feeling very refreshed.
The only reason I haven't given it five stars was because the room was a little cool early in the evening. Having said this I would prefer that to somewhere stuffy and hot.
Will definitely return. Great value for such luxury.

Spent 2 lovely nights here over Christmas with my family. Whilst our room was small, it was lovely. We received a gorgeous Christmas Hamper on full of goodies, along with all the other guests. The thing that stands out about this boutique hotel is the food - we couldn't fault it. On Christmas day evening, they set up a buffet for all the guests which was better than the actual lunch we had at another hotel. The staff were very attentive and made us feel very welcome.

Room Tip: Be specific on the rooms. Room 6 has an open shower, no bath.

We had a pleasant enough stay here but the room was exceptionally small and the water for the shower is, at best, intermittent in the mornings. There is nowhere to hang any clothes nor store a suitcase in the room. The staff were attentive during our stay and the breakfast was good.
However, on checkout we were presented with a bill for our stay despite it being a gift. We were shocked to see the cost of the room given its size and facilities. We were given a flyer upon departure showing a much lower price for our room so we called the hotel to query it. We were assured of a response in five to ten minutes as they thought it might have been an error. No call. Rather than write an extended review I shall summarise as follows:-
4 phone calls that were not returned and 3 e mails ignored over the space of six weeks including a promise from the Manager that he would get back to us in a few days. The question that I was asking was incredibly simple. "Had we been charged the correct room rate?" After six weeks it took a further insistent call to the hotel to finally be told that the price was correct but the Manager, who had recently joined The Wheatsheaf, admitted on two occasions that the rooms were very expensive for what was on offer!
A bottle of wine was offered by way of compensation for our six week wait for an answer but as this involved visiting the hotel again we kindly declined. We will not be returning to the hotel for two reasons. It is grossly overpriced and we prefer to deal with establishments that care about their customers after they have checked out and not just during your stay.
