“A mixed bag”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is a beautiful little hotel on lovely grounds. Our room (#3) was spacious and comfortable, if a bit warm. Too late, I realized it overlooked the patio where people were dining outside. Since it was mid-afternoon, the noise was minimal and I thought little of it. We enjoyed a delightful cream tea outside ourselves. We returned to the room to rest before dinner and woke to a totally different scene. Our peaceful country inn was full of people on the patio and in the yard. So many people and screaming children that we could not enjoy a dinner outside and had to eat in a warm and stuffy dining room. Unfortunately, the partying outside went on until quite late in the evening and we needed earplugs to sleep. Hotel staff never inquired or apologized for our experience. Food was good, staff was okay, property is beautiful but not the idyllic stay in the country I was hoping for.

Room Tip: Avoid room 3!

Very many thanks for taking the time to leave a review about the Mill House. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us in most part.
I'm very sorry to hear of the disturbance you had from people outside on our patio area in he evening.
It is fairly rare to have such a long period of beautiful summer weather, therefore, people have certainly been making the most of Al Fresco Dining this summer.
We are grateful for you pointing this out as it is something that we are taking very seriously and looking into how we can prevent this happening in the future. Room 3 is a lovely room so it would be a shame if people started to avoid it for this reason.
We certainly want guests to feel well rested after a stay at the Mill House, so please accept my apologies that this wasn't the case for your stay.

A lovely little hotel in a beautiful location. Food was first class. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Our room was comfortable and quiet but got very hot in the evening due to it being west facing. However, the hotel provided us with a couple of fans which helped.

Many thanks for your lovely review of the Mill House. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, this hot weather is certainly a shock to the system. I'm glad that providing the fans helped to cool your room down a little for you.

I stayed on business for 2 nights at this beautiful country hotel and found every aspect of Mill House to be excellent. My room was very pleasant; the public rooms very attractive, the grounds superb and the food excellent but what made it for me was the excellent, friendly and motivated staff all ably managed by the owners Paul and Maria. I understand from local people that Paul and Maria have transformed what was a second rate experience to a first-class one - well done and many thanks for making my stay so comfortable.

Paul and Maria have worked incredibly hard since taking control, and have managed to bring out the potential of The Mill House to great effect - the outside looks so much more inviting, the staff have smiles on their faces and presentaion of food is top class!

A gem of a hotel, quiet and peaceful in a lovely setting. The staff were polite and the service was exceptional. The food was delicious and they happily catered for my fussy eating. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.

We attended a wedding at the Mill House Hotel, last weekend. The room we stayed in, (19), was lovely - really clean & tidy with gorgeous bedding... The Hotel was brilliant, staff really friendly. Would recommend to people looking to stay in a quiet little village in the Cotswolds. We live fairly local, so the views/scenery come naturally to us - but it's really gorgeous!

Room Tip: Room 19 was very hot, but had very large windows you can open to a blast of fresh air.
