What can I say? We had the most fantastic stay in this hotel I think we've ever had in the UK! Exploring the Cotswolds and not originally intending to spend a night here, we popped in for a quiet drink after a day walking around the area. The beautiful appearance of the hotel, nestled amongst the quaint architecture and babbling...

The room was superb with everything anyone could want. The wedding was immaculately organised to my friend's wishes. the service was excellent. Parking was a big problem in the early afternoon because the village attracts many tourists even in the week. It is a beautiful village. Excellent food and a good breakfast menu.

Stayed for 1 night with the family. Took 2 rooms and they were both equally good. As we stayed over the weekend the price of the room was £230/night, which was not the cheapest but was bearable seeing that it is the only hotel in Bibury. Staff were helpful enough, although the reception staff checking us in could have been...

The dinner at the restaurant is fantastic. We had trout and lamb, they are all delicious. The Garden is absolutely stunning. The room is very classic and spacious. But the bed in twin room is relatively small, even for a small Asian like me.

We had a cottage very close to the hotel everything we needed and using all the facilities of the hotel apart from rather noisy race goers one night in the dining room it was excellent. Able to use the restaurant some night and bar food other nights. Very good breakfast before going racing at Cheltenham

Myself and my partner stayed overnight in one of the cottages. It was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean and very spacious for 2 people. It had 2 bathrooms, one with a bath, one with huge shower cubicle. The reception manager David was very pleasant and helpful during our stay and more than happy to help with directions and general information....

Hotel is situated in the very beautiful Bibury and I defy any visitor not to adore its location. The hotel is traditional as expected for its setting and very comfortable. Our room had a deep bath and hot shower with luxury toiletries. The room was extremely hot and we were unable to open the windows however a fan was provided...

Me, my parents and my two small kids stayed on this hotel for one night. It was a bit too hot in a room but it was fixed by opening a window. Kids felt there very comfortable. Rooms are big enough for them to be have space to play. Girl on reception was extremely friendly and helpful. Stuff in restaurant...
