Nestled in the heart of the vibrant Cotswold town of Tetbury stands The Close Hotel, a contemporary take on country-house style, this former town house dating back to the 16th century oozes charm and sophistication.
No two rooms at The Close are alike. Each of the eighteen bedrooms are individually styled to reflect its character and charm, some with views over the peaceful garden or historic Tetbury high street all stocked with luxury toiletries and quality bedding - promising a wonderful nights sleep!
Throughout the day The Brasserie, overlooking the walled garden and terrace, serves a relaxed and unpretentious menu of British dishes with a modern twist. In the evenings, the lights are dimmed, the candles lit and the atmosphere is intimate and relaxed, where you can choose from the extensive Brasserie menu or the sophisticated Dining Room dinner menu which showcases Head Chef David Brown’s flair and imagination.

My wife & I wanted to return to the National Arboretum at Westonbirt to see the magical autumn colours. We made a weekend of it and decided to stay at The Close Hotel in Tetbury for a couple of nights. What a gem ! Friendly staff, good food & a beautiful room overlooking the secluded garden. A sizeable bedroom complete with a four poster bed & the most fabulous en suite. Their cream tea served in the garden on a sunny Saturday afternoon is a treat not to be missed. An absolute must if you want to treat yourself in the Cotswolds. Collapse

As a professional chef I’m not easily impressed when I dine out, but the Sunday lunch menu, presentation and tasty food served at The Close Hotel was of a surprisingly high standard and exceptional value at £23.95 pp for 3 courses. I enjoyed a succulent ballotine of ham hock, my husband opted for mackerel, which far from boring, came with what appeared to be lemon caviar (involving molecular gastronomy - a nod to chef's fine dining capabilities) and was crisp skinned and unctuous. After a suitably short wait, two large plates brimming with Sunday roast appeared, consisting of three generous slices of slightly pink, tender sirloin, an array of perfect al dente vegetables, plus puffy Yorkshire pudding. If I’m being really picky, the roasties were a slight let down, lacking flavour and could have been crunchier – Wilja would’ve been a better choice. The gravy, though plentiful was a bit institutional.. We both chose cheese over dessert, but from what I could see the puddings certainly wouldn’t disappoint either. Our lunch took place in the elegant, dark walled dining room complete with high ornate ceiling and large sash windows where light streamed in from the charming south facing garden. It is without doubt a beautiful room in which to dine. Not surprisingly Sunday lunch here is popular with both hotel guests and locals alike so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment. I certainly look forward to returning again very soon. Collapse
Wonderful staff but the dog friendly room is not very people friendly.

On the plus side the staff, food and service were excellent but this was all offset by the fact that our room was drearily decorated and dark as a cave. The bathroom had to have the blinds pulled in order that we were not observed doing our ablutions and and window looked straight out onto another building. The lighting was that cold low energy lighting which did nothing to raise the emotional temperature of the navy blue room and was either too bright or too dark depending on whether you wanted the overhead lights on on not. One other concern was the bath with the shower over. It was so deep that getting in and out of it - especially when slippery- was a health and safety challenge and it would certainly not be suitable for anyone unsteady on their feet. Lastly, the noise from the private dining room below was irritating on our first night (although the staff were helpful in trying to have the diners leave by 11pm) and the footsteps of the people above are very evident too - no chance of sleeping late! We were also disappointed not to be asked how our stay had been, on check out - especially as we decided not to complete our stay. We would have welcomed the opportunity to applaud the staff and the service but also to give feedback about the room. All in all a disappointing stay. Collapse

First of all get good instructions for finding the hotel's carpark which has no access from its frontage on the main street - or you could find yourselves in a bad mood before you arrive. Once parked you will be delighted. Our room was large, decorated tastefully (modern British) and beautifully furnished (traditionally). The bathroom too! There was even a handrail and a chrome 'tidy' for your soap etc.in the bath/shower area. Desirable, if not vital but not as common as you might think - one hotelier once said "We don't want it to seem like an old people's home"! We are not tight-fisted but we chose to eat in the brasserie because we prefer small portions and two starters each is fine. One reservation - the management, perhaps emulating some of the most eminent London restaurants and most Oriental ones - believe that atmospheric means pitch-black. When you have to use a torch to read the menu or see what is on your plate, neither of which is doing the chef de cuisine any favours, you realise that something is awry and may not be put right anytime soon. "No-one else has mentioned this, sir" perhaps. Happily, there are two tables (but each only for two) where there is intimate but effective lighting. Oh, and perhaps plain rocket (with too much vinaigrette in the French style) was not the best accompaniment to smoked salmon. Nevertheless, this is an excellent hotel with loads of character, first class breakfasts and charming staff of whom I can only mention two (because I asked their names). These were receptionists Sabina from Lithuania and Sonia from Spain who reminded me how much Britain owes to the Continent where the hospitality industry is considered a profession and not just a job. When I asked to book out Sonia said "Aer you sure you want to ?" A great line and if we hadn't such a tight schedule we may well have stayed another night.i ut the same price as a main-line dish.

Good place for afternoon tea and Sunday lunch. We recently went here and it was pretty good. Really reasonable price for good quality food in a beautiful location especially if you're lucky enough to go on a clear day and have the pleasure of eating in the garden. Will more than likely be back. Collapse
