Nicely located in a quiet side street in Burford, this hotel is simply outstanding. The buildings all oozed character and are beautifully finished. The staff are all superb, welcoming, charming and always attentive to the customer's needs, but in a friendly and non-pretentious way, which many hotels would do well to copy. The garden room was comfortable, spacious and well furnished. The only very minor gripe we had with it was that it would benefit from having hooks to hang your coats on if the weather is wet. The restaurant is excellent, ad the breakfasts were beautifully cooked and delicious. We ate in the bar in the evenings. The choice of food is very good and again, all of it is well prepared and very tasty. We will now make this our hotel of choice whenever we are anywhere near the area! Collapse

Burford is conveniently located for us and our friends about half way, about 45mins, between where we each live and The Bay Tree has been our lunch venue of choice for a number of years. We tend to eat in the bar and while the food was generally well cooked, on this occasion there were some aspects we found lacking. One starter was a duck crepe, it looked very nice and the proportion appeared generous but the salad had not been washed and was quite dirty. A fork was missing from the table and had to be requested and the extraneous noise from behind the bar made conversation difficult at times. Having said that, the soup, celeriac and artichoke was excellent as was the loin of cod and the beef burgers. We understand there have been some recent staff and management changes, let's hope they soon rise to the previous high standards we have come to expect in the past Collapse

My partner and I stayed here for one night a few weeks ago under the spoil yourselves package. We opted for the excellent double room and the room matched it's description, it was spacious and clean. The package included a box of chocolates and half a bottle of champagne which was on ice when we arrived. We also has afternoon tea which came with a selection of cakes, sandwiches and a scone each. I have no complaints, the cakes were great! The dinner was also of a high standard. Although service was slow, the options we chose tasted good. The decor of the hotel was great, we sat in the bar after dinner for a drink next to the fire which was a nice touch. I cannot comment on breakfast as we didn't go. Unfortunately it rained on our visit so we quickly explored the high street before retreating to a pub! All in all we enjoyed our stay and we would recommend this hotel to anyone considering to book.

We stayed here for one night a few weeks ago as we were attending a food tasting at our wedding venue nearby. The hotel is nicely furnished and we were very happy with our room. As we were out for the evening we didn't spend much time in the hotel but we did have a nice drink in the bar next to the fire before we went out. When we checked in we asked the staff to book us taxis to and from our tasting that evening because we knew the location was quite remote. The man who checked us in was happy to do so and called up to our room a short while later to confirm that they'd been book. Unfortunately, the taxi booked to pick us up and return us to the hotel after our tasting failed to show up, which is obviously not the hotel's fault. However, when we called the hotel to ask which taxi company had been used so that we/they could find out where it was, the girl on reception had absolutely no idea which company had been used. We decided to wait another ten minutes to see if the taxi was just running late but when they still hadn't shown up ten minutes later we called the hotel again to ask if they could book us another taxi (we had no internet or phone data to look up a company ourselves). The girl on the desk told us yes of course she'd book us another taxi. After we'd waited another fifteen minutes, it occurred to us that there might be a delay (it being a Friday night) so we called the hotel again to ask ask if the taxi company had given an eta. We were then informed that no taxi had been booked - the girl working at the desk told us that she wasn't local so she didn't know any taxi numbers? Luckily, the staff at the tasting venue were able to give us access to wifi and we managed to look up a taxi company ourselves (the first one that came up on google) and book one but we had to wait another 20 mins for it to arrive. Suffice to say, we went to bed feeling distinctly unimpressed. Neither of us slept well due to the extreme heating and we were woken early the next morning by other guests talking on the stairwell outside our room. Nor did the hotel redeem itself with breakfast the next morning - I ordered the "runny" eggs and soldiers but received hard-boiled eggs and a few cold sticks of buttered toast. Collapse

What a beautiful setting in the village of Burford in the Cotswolds. We stayed over for two nights and were pleasantly surprised. The wedding went off with out any hitches even though the wedding planner was not much use over the preceding months. The food on the wedding day was of a high quality and the service was at the same level. We danced into the late night and enjoyed the fire and drinks in the pub seeing it was ice cold outside. Worth a visit for a weekend away to enjoy the country side. It is worth another visit. Collapse
