We had booked a room at Marriott in Swindon and there was a mix up with our booking. Marriott made a reservation for us at the Pear Tree at Purton. Needless to say, we were NOT impressed. We'd just driven nearly 3 hours from Kent and were already running late for a party! What a lovely surprise we got on... More

This is the perfect venue for a quiet, relaxed wedding reception. Prior to our big day we had several, planning meetings with the hotel manager, Alix who was extremely, knowledgeable and helpful.

Lovely location in the country side .Beautiful building with lovely grounds. On arrival we were greeted and shown to our room which was comfortable and very clean.The evening meal and breakfast were most enjoyable. The service couldn't be faulted. A most enjoyable stay and would recommend to anyone who want a good quality get away.

Came for Afternoon Tea to celebrate my niece's wedding. Lovely bright room upstairs with 2 huge chandeliers. Good choice of sandwiches, bright pink macarons, two types of scones, plain & fruited to have with the lovely Purton jam and wonderful marble cake as well. Lovely gardens.

Stayed at this lovely country hotel for three nights as part of a group of twelve. Our room was large, comfortable, and spotlessly clean.

This little hotel was one of the best we have stayed at. The room was outstanding. The setting peaceful. Well located in the southern Cotswalds. The restaurant was also 4.5 out of 5. The service for the whole stay was faultless.
