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.

Wow! The Close really does know how hospitality should be done. A stunning building within beautiful grounds, it really is idyllic Cotswolds. We booked through Mr & Mrs Smith and therefore received a free glass of bubbles each, and their recommendation to book the Dove room was spot-on; we had a massive stunning room, with a 4-poster bed and roll-top bath. Each room is very different so it's definitely worth doing your research and requesting the room you want. The reception staff were lovely and helpful and really couldn't do enough to help. The hotel itself is steeped in history and we wish we could have stayed longer to make the most of it. We would highly recommend the hotel brasserie for dinner - great atmosphere, excellent service and probably one of the best restaurant meals I've ever had. The breakfast the next day was equally delicious and it was lovely having it delivered to our room so that we could enjoy it at our leisure. We cannot recommend this enough - thank you for such a wonderful stay. Collapse

My wife and I just spent the most perfect night in The Dove room of The Close in Tetbury having dinner and breakfast also. The dining room, bar, bedroom (even the corridors!) look absolutely stunning. I just love the interior decor and the ambience of the whole place, we will be trying to replicate a few areas at home. Traditional Cotswold with a contemporary twist. The staff were above and beyond pleasant, outgoing and helpful. There is a real sense of the whole place running like clockwork behind the scenes. The location in central Tetbury can't be faulted and they welcome dogs too. Plus the food was superb, my Duck was absolutely delicious. The Close is 'close' to perfection! Collapse

Have just returned from a two-night stay in the Close Hotel. On walking through the door, you imagine how this could possibly only be a three star hotel. The place looks immaculate and exudes luxury and history, right down to the wonderful aroma of what seems like the smoke from centuries of fires. Looking lost and in search of reception (if you enter from the main street, you come in to the back of the hotel, with reception situated toward the rear), we ambled through the bar and met with a member of staff who looked, but didn't acknowledge us. The very friendly receptionist gave us directions for the car park and showed us where everything was, before showing us up to the room. The room we stayed in (Nightingale) was excellent. Unbelievably massive with bathroom to match. The bedroom room was sumptuous with views over the garden and had a massive bed with wonderful bedding and large screen TV on the wall, somehow not dominating the room. As for the bathroom, I've never seen anything so big! It had room for a troupe of dancers to tap their way around a slipper bath, armchair and side-by-side rain showers - all without banging into the mirror on the wall that transformed into a flat screen tv! It came with a nice array of Molton Brown toiletries and towels to see you through the stay. After settling into the room, we ventured back down to the bar for a drink and met the same staff member who'd not acknowledged us earlier. Perhaps he was having an off night, or wanted to get home to his own bed, but our order seemed an inconvenience to him, so we had the one drink and went back upstairs. Breakfast the following morning was a bit of a mixed bag. There didn't seem to be enough staff to cope with what wasn't a particularly busy room, to the point that when we moved table, we ended up moving our tea and drinks over ourselves. I ordered the full English and asked, as always, for a fried egg with runny yolk, whilst DP opted for salmon and eggs. When they came, the full English was on a narrow rectangular plate with an egg that had been cooked to within an inch of its life. Everything else, however, was really nicely cooked and quite tasty. Again, it was the interaction with the staff that took the shine off the experience. We returned for afternoon tea later and once again whilst not particularly busy, it did seem like another member of staff wouldn't have gone amiss. The one who did serve us wasn't able to tell us what the sandwich selection was and went off to ask. Before she returned, a colleague had dropped off the serving tear with a groaning section of cakes and scones, but only 3 finger sandwiches. I consider myself from the stable of the not-wanting-to-make-a-fuss type customer, but even I had to ask if they seriously thought that was a portion for two people. The serving tier was whipped away and she was off to check with the chef. Soon after, back it came with her carrying another plate with 3 sandwiches on... I couldn't quite get over the three sandwiches and, worse still, as a non meat eater, DP was presented with a couple of thick slices of tomato and a mini gherkin as an option. (I've never heard of a gherkin and tomato sandwich before and would avoid at all costs if I did see it on a menu). I felt my sandwiches were a bit on the bland side; they were all on the same bread, so just seemed like a collection of uninspiring cold fillings. The sweet section was less abstemious, with an array of cakes and scones to make up for the stingy savoury section. (Go for the champagne tea and you'll get a very nice glass of Chandon Rosé). We were meant to dine in the hotel that night, but couldn't quite bring ourselves to, the food at the previous two meals being just about ok. Sunday's breakfast was a revelation. A totally cheery experience. Really friendly staff, lovely breakfast - this time with the requested runny yolk. Completely different experience to the previous day. We really, really loved the hotel and would stay here again. I would desperately have liked to give this an excellent, but those few things above just took the shine off. Collapse

We had a lovely stay at The Close Hotel whilst house hunting and visiting our grandson. Our room, The Gallery, was roomy and comfortable. Everyone who works there were charming and helpful. The food was superb, fine dining to a high standard plus a very good brasserie menu. Very comfy public rooms. Town centre location with safe parking behind. Dogs are very welcome. Collapse

Stayed here for two nights and it was a great hotel. The decor is lovely, it's very peaceful and the staff were very professional. We had a problem with our room during the first night and the extremely helpful night manager quickly organised an alternative upgraded room. The gardens were beautiful and I imagine a lovely place to sit and relax in the summer. If you are in Tetbury, this is the place to stay. Collapse
