My husband and I travel up to the Cotswolds on a regular basis to see several friends who live in the area. We probably come up 6 times a year. Over the last 2 years, we have stayed in over 7 different hotels but now choose to stay only at the Rectory. We feel like it is a second home. The staff know us by name, our daughter acts like she owns the place (!) It is small enough to feel homely but big enough that you get the benefits of a hotel - swimming pool (which is heated and I have to say not many outdoor pools are nowadays), fantastic food which is all organic and freshly prepared. When others do stay without wanting to sound snobby it does attract nice clientele. The rooms are excellent value compared to many Cotswolds hotels and in my book you get more here for your money than anywhere else. We can afford more expensive hotels but have just got fed up with getting ripped and coming from London we have pretty high standards and this place seems to get the balance right. We've stayed there 4 times now and every time it gets better as the hotel manager seems to be doing ongoing refubishments and upgrading. I would strongly recommend this place - but not too much as we don't want to miss out on a room!
