I registered a new account on the UK site specially to write this review cuz Lansdowne is so good :) We stayed in Room 11, which is on the top floor facing road, but it is quiet. Location: 5-min walk to the town centre (towards left hand side), and if you walk towards right-hand side, you will see a house...

We stayed in June for a long weekend. We were welcomed by Cheryl and shown to our lovely room with a four poster bed. Both Cheryl and Anthony were well versed in all the must see areas to visit. Excellent breakfast menu and very tasty!

We stayed in this quaint B&B during Christmas break for 2 nights and had a lovely time. Anthony welcomed us warmly, gave us time to settle down before rushing through the check-in formalities and offered coffee which was apt in the December weather and especially if you take the local transport and not have your own car. The B&B was...

We returned to the Lansdowne at the end of June for a second visit, and just when we thought Cheryle and Anthony could not improve things since our visit last September, we were amazed yet again! We stayed in Room 2 this time, and it really had the Wow factor as soon as we opened the door! We were staying...

Really lovely welcome fron Land lord Anthony, excellent breakfast and our room was so pretty with fabulous mattress and bed linen. We wished we could stay another few nights and will definitely return. Nothing was too much trouble and Anthony recommended the best places to visit for a meal out that evening- top notch 🍸🍷😊

Thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. The Landsdowne is a little gem with plenty of parking and only a five minute walk in to the centre of Bourton-on -the-water. Anthony and Cheryle were the perfect hosts. Our twin room was clean and comfortable and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was extensive and all hot food was cooked to order. The local...

This was my first visit to the Lansdowne but hopefully it will not be my last. Cheryl and Anthony gave me a very warm welcome to their lovely hotel. My room was spotless and very comfortable.

When visiting a picture-perfect place like Bourton-On-The_Water, finding a place to stay that can enhance the beauty of the place is a bonus. And it is this bonus that we gained by staying at The Lansdowne. The location is excellent, just at the start of the village, though to be honest, can't imagine that you can have a bad location...

Excellent stay, lovely welcome and room attractively decorated and comfortable. Good quality bedding and comfy beds, nice touch to have a fan to use. Everything we needed, very good breakfast freshly cooked. Both Anthony and Cheryle friendly and helpful. Within easy walking of lovely village of Bourton on the Water. Would definitely recommend

Thank you so much for your wonderful positive feed back for the Lansdowne ,and we are pleased you enjoyed the show too, it really was fun even though we would agree, slightly robbed of the true result.
