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.

On arrival we were warmly greeted by Julie who took us to our room for out three night stay. We were shown to The Tudor Room, a rather quirky room overlooking the central garden. I write quirky, the open rafters were, quite clearly, hand hewn and, probably, original. The bed was large and very comfortable. Toiletries were supplied and of a very good quality although I have had better towels in hotels of a comparable status. We ate in for dinner having chosen from the menu whilst sitting in the comfortable bar area. There was good selection on the menu and a reasonably good wine list. Sadly, and this is my opinion only, the majority of the wines on offer were French without even a decent English Sparkling Wine on the list. When we returned to our room I noticed that, in one corner of the room, where the roof line sloped down, there was a large patch of damp (although this was dry) and the plaster was starting to come away. I reported this to reception that evening and the next day the little problem was rectified. I highly recommend having breakfast in this hotel. I judge hotels by the quality of the breakfast provided and The Close exceeded all expectations even superceding my benchmark hotel; of The Angel Midhurst. Wonderful breakfast staff, freshly cooked items (nothing left under hot lamps to get dry) all done to personal requirements. Only crib: why, when there is smoked haddock on the menu, could I not have Kedgeree? (joking). The hotel is not cheap but it is worth the money spent. Reception staff, Nikki and Julie were excellent a Collapse

I grew up near Tetbury and my wife and I have visited the Close, on and off, for more than twenty years. We decided to take up their "Autumn colours" offer, comprising dinner, bed and breakfast and entry tickets to the nearby Westonbirt Arboretum (wonderful). The hotel itself is charming and comfortable with a cosy bar area and a very nice walled garden terrace for lunch or drinks (we had the set lunch there on a warm day in July and it was excellent both in terms of the food and the value for money). We were allocated the Elizabethan room which is on the top floor - spacious, with a large comfortable bed and a decent bathroom with the toiletries one would expect. Breakfast was first-rate - fresh juices, granola/cereals, the usual cooked breakfast options and a good selection of pastries, although the coffee was weak and insipid, My issues revolve around the dinner. The dining room is elegant and nicely appointed. We were there on a Sunday night so were expecting it to be very quiet (it was). The food was a let down. Based on our recent lunch, we were expecting good quality food, nicely presented. What we got was average pub food, with little imagination in the presentation. Baked scallops with a breadcrumb and herb crust were simply three scallops in a single shell sitting on a bed of rather sad looking, wilted salad leaves; my pork belly was plonked on a bed of lentils large enough to feed three people but without any other garnish and my wife's lamb cutlets were similarly poorly presented (and overcooked). There is an OK wine list, with some expensive bottles but with no vintage information - if you want me to pay for good wine I need to know that it's from a decent vintage, otherwise I'm going to default to the house wine. Finally, there was the most awful muzak playing loudly in the background - I can't imagine Johnny Cash singing "Ring of Fire" is anyone's idea of a relaxing accompaniment to dinner. The waitress did, however, turn it down when asked to do so. Service was attentive and helpful. The total cost of the whole package, including pre- and post-dinner drinks, wine and coffee was about £350. If dinner had come up to scratch, it would have been a bargain but, alas that wasn't the case. Collapse

We entered The Close hotel from the back, through the garden. The young lady who greeted us had all of our reservation ready and then she took a bag up the flight of stairs to our first floor room with a view out to the main street. The hotel has only 18 rooms and ours was generous with a generous bath, as well. Downstairs, the room between the street and the bar served as a lobby and the bar was active with guests like us and locals. Tetbury was delightful and we enjoyed it in the evening. The hotel breakfast was amazing and our dinner there was excellent, too. The staff were young and multi-tasked, serving food and drink as well as welcoming guests. The hotel was an old home and I would go back again and again. We loved the atmosphere, the garden in late September held many guests on a warm afternoon, sipping their gin and tonics. Collapse

I booked a night away with my partner over the weekend. The hotel is conveniently located in the centre of a small town within the Cotswold. The reception is a small area at the rear of the hotel and was unmanned upon our arrival with another couple waiting to be served. The receptionist did appear to be rushed off her feet a little, but took time to show us the night entrance for use after 11pm, the restaurant, bar and finally to our rooms. We stayed in the Doves room which is spacious and has a beautiful 4 poster bed and free standing bath. Unusually for a hotel of this standard, ironing facilities were on request and not contained within the room. Based on the reviews, we decided to have dinner in the hotel and were somewhat surprised how quiet the venue was. No more the 2 couples were in the restaurant for any one period of time. I had the lamb cutlets and blackberry moose, which was well presented and very nice. Unfortunately during the night I developed a severe case of diarrhoea as a result of what I strongly believe to be from the restaurant given I'd not eaten since late morning. Given my discomfort, I was unable to take breakfast and discussed highlighted the fact I'd been unwell to the receptionist who noted the food I'd eaten and implied the management would be in touch. Given this was a Sunday, there was no opportunity to see a GP or method to keep a sample. It became apparent that my partner had left her hair straighteners and when the hotel was contacted, they said they had been found in the room when we left. I did wonder why they had not contacted me, but nether less they arrange for the items to be returned. During the correspondence, I mentioned the fact that I was disappointed no one from the hotel had been in touch to discuss my diarrhoea. The response was slightly dismissive and they just said I should have gone to a GP. Its a beautiful hotel, but the after effects have placed a bitter taste in my mouth Collapse
